All of our tools are fabricated in our CNC milling center which features our advanced Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) equipment and Wire-Cutting Machines which is precise to within 1/1000 mm.
Our fleet of highly advanced precision tooling machines ensures efficiency with respect to both time and resources, providing quicker lead times and high quality, cost-effective tooling capable of supporting the various lifecycles of the products produced.
Analysis High quality tools begin with expert design. Our skilled engineering staff thoroughly evaluates and analyzes OEM drawings and CAD models, with an eye toward optimizing the performance, manufacturability, price per part, cycle time, production volume, and part reliability. That’s how we achieve manufacturability by design.
Simulation By using simulation software (including Mold Flow), we simulate the performance of our tooling design. Not only can we identify and test potential fixes for common molding problems (such as molded-in stress, overpacking, sink marks, burn marks, and warping), but we can also dial in the best parameters, tolerances, and materials for reliable results.
Precision Machining Once the tooling design has been finalized via software, it is then fabricated in our world-class on-site machine shop.
Process Control After the tool is made, we confirm that all the critical dimensions are within spec and the surface finishes exactly match the design requirements. We then make parts from the tool and use automated coordinate measurement machines (CMMs) to measure and record detailed dimensional data. That data is then fed into our rigorous statistical process control (SPC) system, ensuring low scrap rates and reducing production headaches for our customers throughout the production lifetime of the part.
