In the industrial stamping industry, press & transfers and the surrounding automation are some of the most crucial components of the manufacturing system, so bringing them down for any length of time, be it for for replacement, scheduled maintenance, or necessary upgrades, has a huge impact on production. With so much at stake riding on the rails of the transfer, it is no wonder many companies are so reluctant to upgrade and are instead relying on hardware and software that is over 20 years old.
