(Click to Expand)
Utilizing our many years of experience, state-of-the-art technology, and a commitment to stringent quality control, we deliver dies that will help you achieve precision and high productivity in your manufacturing operations. We provide Die Cast tooling that operates in die cast machines ranging from 50 to 3,000 tons, with fully assembled tool weights of up to 80,000 pounds. We build everything from simple open and closed dies to your more complex, multi-slide dies, 3-plate die designs, and dies utilizing the latest technology of 3D printed conformal cooled inserts. Some of our services Include:
- Complete parametric 3D modeling of tool design
- Flow simulations and thermal analysis
- Multi-slide dies using standard designs along with submarine style slide pulls and cam actuated slide pulls.
- Dies using loose piece inserts to cast internal features.
- Design and Development of conformal cooling lines to improve die cast tool performance.
- Die manuals and service manuals with certificates of conformance of materials and heat treat
With our focus on our customers’ automation and minimizing additional secondary operations, we build trim dies that will help to enhance the final form and visual appeal of your cast components.
