Precision Metal Products, Inc. (PMP) is the
largest privately owned, high-velocity forging company in the world. PMP’s
fully integrated manufacturing capabilities enable the company to convert raw
materials into precision-forged and (if required) machined parts while
maintaining high performance, manufacturing and quality standards.
Measuring the strain on load-bearing members of hydraulic forging presses is one way to diagnose potential equipment trouble before it becomes a major downtime incident. Using linear variable differential transformers and related hardware, a distribution-of-forces system can alert equipment operators to potential problems.
