MGC Inc. Metal News:

MGC introduces Brankamps X7 to the Canadian market.

Metal working, custom precision machining, metal and Tool and Die repair as well as precision TIG welding are now part of our services to assist our customers with their metal manufacturing needs.  Custom part development R&D, custom build machinery as well as acoustic machine and die protection system integration are available on site or at our Newmarket facility.
High demand for higher quality die protection systems triggers research and new development of custom die protection systems.  Custom installations now combine previous separate systems.  Ultra Emission sensors can now be attached to existing equipment and integrated.  This solves the issue of finding the needle in the haystack for  most previously undetectable stamping flaw solutions.

Mirco Graenert Consulting Inc. offers Brankamp acoustic die protection systems with metal stamping consulting services at no extra charge.Design Product News Magazine publishes our article on using pressurex pressure sensors allowing for cost reductions in long term manufacturing in progressive die metal manufacturing applications .
Metal Forming Magazine publishes our article on using pressure sensor film in a 400 ton progressive die trial.  We expect that there is much to be gained from using these materials in a stamping and tool and die setting.  Actual pressure readings can be obtained in seconds with this product.  The paper thin sensor film can be used to fine tune stamping dies to reduce die maintenace costs and has millions of other uses in manufacturing apart from stamping.
MGC uses state of the art Pro Engineer Wildfire 4.0 3D software to design progressive stamping dies and simple machines.  Already efficient in design we are looking to make the most of using 3D design tools to enhance the design capability in the area of stamping as well as 3D model creation for illustration, marketing and rapid prototyping purposes.  We have in the past  been heavily involved with the development of new products and stamping in the powertrain area.
