We have in house die tryout to 250 ton. All designs are done in 3D to check for design clearances prior to cutting.
We have over 75 years experience in die design and build serving a wide variety of industries. Bahrs can help you determine a cost benefit analysis to determine die payback.
Traditionally low volume parts are waterjet cut and manually formed on a brake press or a one hit forming die. When volume goes up to thousands a year it may be justified to add blanking dies to eliminate the waterjet step. Higher volumes per year may justify a progressive die. A progressive die feeds material from a coil and produces one or more completed parts every stroke of the press.
Proper die design can mean huge difference in die maintenance costs. Material selection, material hardness, special coatings, die layout, etc. are extremely important to die life and up time.
