Properly processed tooling and dies are critical to the success of the entire manufacturing process, from small machine shops to global OEMs.
We’ve been working with leading tool and die manufacturers for over 75 years, so we’re familiar with the challenges you face in your business. In fact, we’ve shaped the way we work to align with your priorities.
Turnaround Times. Your tooling or dies play a key role in the smooth functioning of the entire supply chain. Delays in the heat treatment process create a ripple effect that can ultimately lead to factory downtime for your customers and chargebacks for you.
Preventing Distortion. Accurate geometry of your tooling and dies is essential to your customers’ ability to produce parts that meet tolerance. We’ve developed techniques for minimizing distortion during the heat treatment process, and our precision furnace controls ensure proper processing time after time. We also meet all NADCA guidelines for high-pressure die casting dies.
Data and Quality Control. As an industry leader in heat treating data collection and quality control, we can provide the most comprehensive assurance that your tooling and dies were processed correctly. Our PICS system and automated furnace controls work together to give you scientific certainty in the results of your dies’ thermal processes.
Specialty Processes and Overflow Capabilities. We can augment your in-house heat treatment capabilities to provide processing for complex dies or specialty materials. We can also help you meet your commitments to customers by fulfilling your needs for overflow or emergency processing.
We are a full-service commercial thermal processor with a comprehensive range of capabilities and a vast equipment array. These are a few of the services we most commonly perform for our tool and die customers.
You may know that recipe parameters for your processes are stored in our PICS system which works with our technology to automatically make adjustments to our equipment during heat treatment. In addition to your thermal processing specifications, we also store and communicate handling information digitally in a way that follows your tooling throughout its entire journey through our facility. A few ways we can help with specialized handling are…
From precise processing to testing, handling, and more, Paulo’s team can provide a vital link in your supply chain. Our team of in-house metallurgists can also help identify and resolve issues that a previous heat treater may have had to bring your parts to spec. Bottom line? Bring us your challenges, and let’s work on solving them together.
