December 16th, 2003 (Newmarket, Ontario) Penmar Automation Inc. today announced the introduction of a new Power Press Control unit which improves the safety of metal stamping operations in compliance with the CSA Safety Standard Z142-02 which becomes mandatory in December 2004.

This press control is called the Command Stamp and ties together all of the safety guards and monitoring devices on Power Presses with diverse redundancy in order to verify and maintain safe Power Press operations.

In conjunction with the introduction of this new unit, developed entirely in Canada, Penmar Automation will be holding an Open House session on January 22nd at 10:30 am to demonstrate the unit installed on a 1960's vintage 80 ton Minster press in compliance with the Z142-02 standard.
