Delivering cost-savings and repeatability

We partner the hands-on manufacturing experiences of our die designers with VISI-Design 3D software to establish a feasible, reliable, and quality design for your production tooling. Our comprehensive design process evaluates multiple factors from material type, part specifications, projected volumes, and equipment requirements to ensure the die will perform correctly for the long-term.

From design-to-delivery we adhere to a New Product Introduction (NPI) process. We utilize ERP-technology to communicate and document the required steps to the Engineers, Toolmakers, Quality Technicians, and CNC Machinists. This detailed and customized process ensures your cost, quality, and delivery goals will be attained during full production.

Die Design Commitment

Designing is a highly technical process that requires patience and attention to detail. It is our hands-on manufacturing knowledge and emphasis on innovation that sets our design team above the others. A die is a valued investment and our goal is to design a robust die that consistently produces high-quality parts.

Die Design Technology We Use

Experienced Die Designer

VISI-Design 3D software

VISI-Design 3D software provides a step-by-step process to successfully create a design print for a single tooling die that often contains hundreds of components and multiple operations. Simulated production runs allow the designers to verify what does and does not work in the tooling die before building costs and time are actually incurred. This system optimizes the designs to improve manufacturing productivity.

Verifying Product Specifications

3D Measurement

The Faro Arm utilizes high-precision 3D technology to capture, measure and analyze the dimensions of a physical object at 560,000 points per second. This allows the Die Designers to handle more complex geometries and receive results quickly for shorter turnaround times.

 

Case studies

Meeting Equipment Design Challenges

Meeting Equipment Design Challenges

The tabs on this lock washer were not forming correctly leading to production delays. Prototyping established a feasible manufacturing process that could metal stamp this part and its tabs to the design print.

Streamlining Production and Improving Quality

Streamlining Production and Improving Quality

This metal part was having quality issues and its production costs were increasing. A new locking feature corrected the quality issues and building a more efficient progressive stamping die reduced costs.
