Dedicated

Tooling Team

A well-built tool guarantees good parts. We provide you with a dedicated tooling team to co-design, manufacture and maintain your program from concept through New Product Introduction.

Tools and dies are constructed in-house or with one of our qualified domestic or international suppliers.  Whether constructed in our facility or with a qualified partner, our team of skilled tooling engineers is on-site once your tools are in production to troubleshoot potential problems and make any needed adjustments for optimal tooling performance.

Metal

Die Design & Build 

When your sheet metal parts are ready for high volume production, tooling is your next step. We design and build progressive and stage dies in-house, ensuring every stamp and bend is perfectly executed.
