Dayton Rogers: Metal Forming Design Seminars
Engineer before you have to re-engineer!
At Dayton Rogers we work closely with your engineers throughout the life of your product - from design to completion. We have been in the metal forming business for 80 years, and we'd like to share our knowledge with you. Whether you're just learning about the advantages of metal stamping or you are a veteran looking for more cost-effective metal fabrication techniques - you'll benefit from this seminar. Best of all, it's free and can be held at a location of your choice.

Solutions for your Problems
We encourage you to bring a part (s) that is causing problems for you. This part could be an existing precision metal formed part or a new design. We will also discuss the program management process, to gain maximum value in working with a precision sheet metal supplier.
Who Will Benefit
People from all areas of manufacturing can benefit from this technical seminar. The seminar material will be especially beneficial to:
Precision metal forming design can be a key consideration when you work on a new project. We created this technical seminar to help our valued customers design precision metal forming cost-efficiently. By considering these factors in the design stage, you'll be able to realize considerable savings on piece-part cost for your project. By studying sample parts and actual case histories, you will learn what works and what does not. The discussion on materials will cover aspects about formability, and cost consideration.
...And because many precision metal formings end up in large assemblies you will study what can be done to improve or speed up that assembly process. A review of these points will help you to apply cost-saving techniques on future designs.
