ITESS : Technology integration of metal stamping and nut welding
ITESS is an on-going research project that ARA is developing in cooperation with the university of Ancona
Objective: integration of the welding process in the stamping die. The goal is to manufacture a prototypal die forming sheet metal and welding nuts.
Advantage: eliminating the welding process after the stamping process by obtaining the end part directly under press. Further advantages: space saving, fall of intermediate warehouses, manpower reduction.
