Helping customers to overcome tooling challenges

Our services extend beyond manufacturing to specification. We help customers overcome any issues with the current tooling supply where performance doesn’t meet expectation.

Premature Wearing

The wearing of punches and dies caused by cold forming will vary depending on the type of metal being formed and the amount of pressure applied during each blow. Wearing is a problem that can sometimes be hard to determine because tooling performance can fluctuate a great deal.

 

Cracked Dies 

Common problems that limit the output performance for dies are stretching, cracking, or splitting. If the production line is set up correctly and there are no other influential factors causing the problem, our Technical Experts can help you to identify the cause, by analyzing the defective tool and reviewing the specification.

If the average output of your tooling is reducing and becoming a costly challenge, we can help. We will provide you with feedback as to what improvements can be made to boost performance and productivity.
