Graham Stamping’s 300 ton servo press increases productivity

October 6, 2021 - AIDA-America, Dayton, Ohio, congratulates Graham Stamping Company, a metal stamping company and complete one-stop shop for all metal stamping needs located in Western Pennsylvania, on the installation of their 300 ton unitized frame AIDA Servo press. The company is enjoying many benefits from its DSF-N2-3000 press. President David MacHarg III notes, “One of the big features [they] like is how intelligent the press is at protecting itself, how it can stop itself if it feels like something isn’t safe or set up correctly, even beyond [their] die sensors.” This is a big advantage over Graham Stamping’s mechanical presses that “do not handle this as well,” resulting in “some substantial die crashes, as well as press maintenance bills.”

On an automotive anti-rotation bracket moved from a mechanical press to their DSF-N2-3000 AIDA servo press, Graham Stamping achieved a 49% productivity increase over their previous mechanical stamping press production method. This is a progressive die part, which includes a coining process at both ends, stamped from minimum 0.108 in. thick SAE J2340 grade 340X HSLA material. The precision provided by the direct-drive servo press is another reason the company cites for moving this bracket from the mechanical press. Additionally, Graham Stamping’s AIDA servo press investment allows the company to quote more competitively, sell parts at lower prices, and realize at least a 30 percent productivity increase on every part moved to its AIDA servo press.
