How to handle stamping, lamination, and die-cutting waste streams automatically ?

As the manufacturing sector recovers from the COVID-19 interruption, one thing has become clear: Skilled worker shortages will continue to expand, and stamping operations need to prepare and adjust to meet this challenge.

According to 21% of candidates in a recent survey organized by a major manufacturing technologies company, automation is one area where COVID-19 revealed opportunities for innovation. Metal forming procedures that automate waste streams and make use of the industrial internet of things (IIoT) will be more productive for a more prosperous future since they will require less human resources on the shop floor. Also, automation improves workplace safety by encouraging people to keep a physical distance from one another and by minimizing total interaction with tools and equipment.
