General productivity at sheet metal fabricators and machine shops, is measured by how much input is required to get a certain output. Often "O.K-looking" numbers show up. Fair enough. 

But if you look a little closer, at how much capital and space is wasted with poor material storage & retrieval, the landscape changes dramatically. Nice looking numbers turn out to be rather bad looking numbers instead.

Material storage and retrieval is one of the biggest waste factors. Most plants that I have seen (and believe me, I have seen a lot of plants) seriously struggle with storing and handling material. Sheet / plate as well as bar-stock (long-span) material.

Of course, Just In Time delivery of the material to your plant would be great. You would not even have a storage issue. But keep dreaming. Reality is different.

Vertical lifts allow metalforming shops to control inventory safely.

The growing movement toward smaller order sizes and just-in-time delivery has placed very high demands on all aspects of manufacturing, including sheet metal forming.

The technologies for mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic presses used for metalworking have adapted, with improved automation and drive engineering, and extremely fast response times. Many presses have been upgraded for better execution of critical press safety functions by integrating controls and safety into one package for better protection of operators and machines, a welcome addition when running a 500- or 1,000-ton press.
