 Press Releases

  • In booth #D45757 at FABTECH 2019, Tooling Tech Group (TTG) will highlight its ability to serve as a single source supplier for the metal forming industry, offering everything from die design, simulation, and engineering through die build, repair, try-out and production stampings.  Visitors to the booth will be able to see stamped components produced by the company’s manufactured dies as well as demonstrations of its transfer press simulation services, offered as part of its die design services.

    Tooling Tech’s transfer press simulation service identifies crashes and inefficient transfer system curves, providing key insights into the transfer die process prior to the dies being machined, built and tried out. In addition to design and build, TTG can provide complete transfer die tryout with its own 280-in., 2,750-ton Eagle stamping press and linear transfer system.

    Tooling Tech Group, founded in 1982, builds custom tooling for a variety of applications including thermoform molding, high compression composite molding, blow molding, rotational molding, die casting, and stamping, as well as providing secondary equipment and automated solutions. Industries served include automotive, appliance, lawn and garden, agricultural, aerospace, marine, and off-road vehicle industries, among others.

    Through organic growth and acquisitions, the company has experienced significant growth with more than 1-million combined square feet of manufacturing space. It employs approximately 600 people and has a total of 13 locations across four states, with an engineering office in China. Business units of the company include Alpha Integration, Century Tool, Die Cad Group, GH Tool & Mold, Majestic Industries, TTG Automation and Tooling Technology.

  • In booth #D45757 at FABTECH 2019, Die Cad Group, a Tooling Tech Group company (Macomb, Mich.), is displaying its Transfer Press Optimization service through video presentations.  This capability is enabled by investment and expertise in T-Sim Transfer Press Simulation software.

    This service provides key insights into the transfer die process by identifying crashes, clearance issues and inefficient transfer system curves prior to any machining of the dies, helping to save considerable time and money. Die Cad can also simulate and optimize existing tools for companies to increase capacity in current press operations.

    With the capabilities enabled by the T-Sim software, Die Cad can analyze incoming part files, fix clash and clearance violations, identify required tool design changes, and make adjustments to achieve the highest SPM without having to go through physical trial and error on the stamping floor.  This applies to servo, mechanical and hydraulic presses regardless of manufacturer.

    The company hosts a variety of CAD platforms, enabling efficient transmittal of data to and from customer facilities via a secure FTP site. Die Cad also employs additional simulation, CAM and inspection software to seamlessly move jobs from part design to mold/die design to simulation to manufacturing.  

    To support the simulation and optimization service, Die Cad has developed a series of standardized worksheets that make it very simple for customers to request this process. For more information, visit https://www.toolingtechgroup.com/transfer-simulation/
  • In booth #D45757 at FABTECH 2019, Majestic Industries—a Tooling Tech Group company (Macomb, Mich.) and specialist in the design and build of progressive stamping dies—will highlight its production stamping capability. The company can handle emergency offload as well as short-term and long-term requirements for dies from 48-in. up to 280-in. 

    Majestic has seven stamping presses ranging from 500 tons to 2,750 tons, with the larger presses equipped with drop-through bolsters that accommodate 72-in. wide coil stock and thicknesses up to 5mm.  All the presses feature tonnage monitors and sensors for pre-sample production runs. The equipment can process a wide range of materials including CR steel, HR steel, galvanized, stainless, aluminum, and Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS).

    Majestic is IATF 16949 certified, enabling the company to ship stampings to any plant.
