Process: Carbide Stamping Dies

Stamping Hardened Material with Ease and Speed Allows Company to Prosper.

Challenge

A world leader in the band saw mill industry had to speed up production of their mills to meet market demands. They needed to increase production while reduce stamping downtime and tooling costs. Easier said than done since they had thousands of dollars invested in older carbide tooling that had to be used in their stamping operations.

Solution

Oberg implemented two important changes. First, they used different grades of carbide. Second, they used new tooling designs to improve production.

Results

This saw mill company increased their production capabilities by over 50% within the last two years. Profits have increased and the new carbide tools are lasting longer and need minimal servicing.
