Enemies to productivity

Recent inflation, labor shortages and supply-chain pressures are forcing businesses to increase productivity and meet greater demand with fewer resources and workers.

Varnish and other lubricant contaminants can slow cycle times and cause micropitting in metal-stamping presses, increasing maintenance and wasting money. Improper lubricant handling and storage processes can introduce contaminants that cause preventable wear, reduced lubricant life and increased downtime. Plus, increased oil-change frequency means increased opportunities for lubricant misapplication.

Despite these challenges, your business must still meet production goals and try to reduce costs.

Find the solutions

AMSOIL Industrial lubricants maximize uptime, while our Certified Lubrication Specialists (CLS) help you eliminate inefficiencies and implement solutions that will save you money.

Attending a trade conference is a fantastic way to learn more about your industry and identify solutions that will bring added value and cost savings to your operations. We recommend the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) Metal Stamping Technology Conference, which covers emerging, evolving and maturing technologies and industry trends that are impactful to metal stamping, die design and die construction companies.

Before attending the conference, review the schedule on the PMA website and create a personal schedule of interesting events, seminars and exhibitors that will bring the most value to your business.

AMSOIL will be presenting on how to prevent mechanical failures caused by improper lubrication. AMSOIL industrial sales manager and certified lubrication specialist, Patrick Vicars, will discuss the primary causes of failure in lubrication and explore the technology, tools and techniques available to bring maximum reliability and sustainability to your lubrication program.

Be sure to attend Patrick’s presentation on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 3:30 p.m.

Build your network

Building your personal and business network is the most important thing to do while attending a conference. Talk to everyone, including reconnecting with old colleagues and making new acquaintances. You never know who can add value to your business or will become your next customer until you have that first conversation.

The PMA Metal Stamping Technology Conference offers multiple networking opportunities for exhibitors and attendees throughout the entirety of the event. Engaging with other experts in your industry will lead to new opportunities and ensure the value received from the conference continues long into the future.
