KB95: Stagger blanking

Resolution

If you are blanking one circle out of a strip you could recognize a 7% material savings blanking 2 across or up to 13% at 4 across. Is this a feasibility in your operation? In some cases the wider material is run through the same die, then rewound and run again down the other side. Other plants use an oscillating feed to position first one side then the other into the die, particularly in transfer press operations.
