Tool & Die Design Services


Ultra’s in-house tooling department is steps away from our metal stamping department for a fully integrated and multi-dimensional approach to designing and building production tooling.  The technical expertise of Ultra’s die designers and toolmakers is extensive and fosters innovation for simple tooling projects to complex progressive dies.

 

Reduced Costs   Increased Repeatability  Defect Free Parts

Ultra designs, builds and maintains tooling run by our stamping department providing quicker turnarounds when changes arise and reducing down times for maintenance checks.  We also build customized tooling for OEM’s and test production for complete die functionality.  Our full-service supplier capabilities ensure a streamlined, hassle-free approach to part production from design to delivery.

Tool & Die Capabilities

  • In-die sensor automation technology.
  • An in-house sensor automation lab that works with your technicians to meet your specifications.
  • In-house die try-outs and first run production capabilities.
  • The ability to meet your inspection requirements (i.e, capability studies and PPAP).
  • Create 3D designs.
  • Produce prototypes utilizing the press brake and laser equipment in the Fabrication Department.
  • Technical design engineering assistance implements cost-effective solutions from prototype to production
  • State-of-the-art design software by VISI-Design, SolidWorks, and AutoCad.
 

Advanced Sensor Automation

Our state-of-the-art sensor automation technology eliminates the need for costly secondary operations such as welding, tapping, taking measurements, and assembling parts by putting these processes directly in the die. Your technicians work directly with our sensor automation lab to evaluate your part’s specifications for cost saving, in-die integration.

 

Prototype to Production

Utilizing our laser and press brake capabilities to produce sheet metal prototypes provides us with the opportunity to prove the effectiveness of your tool’s design, a step that often reveals opportunities for improvements before the tooling is built. In addition, our stamping capabilities allow us to perform in-house die try-outs as well as the opportunity to actually manufacture parts; saving time and money by eliminating issues before final production is started.
