Problem of the Month, November, 2022
Picking And Sticking
The subject of picking and sticking is much more complex than the tooling manufacturers think. How many times have I heard people say that they ordered CRN coating on the tooling but it didn’t work!
The question is, why doesn’t it work! Because there are at least 14 root causes; only a few of which are fixed by a coating on the tooling.
Take our photograph. Recognize the problem? Look from top to bottom and you see three punches with varying degrees of material adhering. This indicates a tooling tolerance problem and using these tools means heat and heat means picking and sticking!!!!
We are in Algeria for the month!
