IRMCO European Summit 2016 – IRMCO Europe celebrating its
15 year anniversary!
IRMCO’s European sales team met in Valencia, Spain in September for their annual summit. Franco Lignetto and Silvia Pappalardo hosted the three-day meeting and Isidoro Pedro, IRMCO’s partner in Spain, helped with the logistics as the host country.
The IRMCO iTool was a top discussion point as it has become a game changer in the industry. The IRMCO iTool is designed to perform stamping-lubricant performance tests based on Dr. Taylan Altan’s cup-draw research at The Ohio State University with EWI. With IRMCO iTool housed in a 300-ton servo press, stamping companies and material suppliers can test and verify lubricant performance with statistical accuracy.
Other important topics reviewed included new technologies that IRMCO has introduced in lubrication as well as improved application methods. IRMCO products are still the number one products sold in Europe for Tube Bending and continues to grow. Team members also shared information that they have learned to improve IRMCO’s performance and to continue to be the leader in oil-free lubricants for metal stamping, forming and bending.
