Die Cast Tooling

In over 80 years of business, we have built over 300,000 unique dies. All of our dies and die cast equipment are standardized around the world and we globally coordinate our tooling resources. This means that wherever your manufacturing location is situated, we support you from concept, rapid prototyping, tooling, and pre-production testing stages to full-scale manufacturing. We offer two types of tooling processes: multi-slide and standard.

The multi-slide difference

Our proprietary multi-slide technology offers a number of unique advantages:

  • Net shape first time, eliminating secondary operations like assembly and machining
  • Complex geometry and tight tolerances at high speed for world-class productivity and lower total costs
  • Minimum part-to-part variation compared to standard multi-cavity dies
  • More compact tools that are less prone to parting-line variation and its negative effect on the finished part’s dimensional tolerances

Taking standard tooling to a new level

Standard die cast tooling comes in single cavities (one part per cycle) or multiple cavities (more than one part per cycle). Our standard tooling process is designed to offer you efficiency in production and lower costs.

  • We always aim to build dies which efficiently cope with high volume production
  • We focus on the design of our dies, putting in as many of the part’s features as needed to avoid secondary operations. Our goal is always net shape first time
  • This careful planning eliminates machining, reducing costs
  • To ensure the longevity of our dies, our tool designers predict what part of the die may wear out and insert this as a separate piece of steel
  • Water lines and cooling are carefully planned to ensure efficient production
