Tooling Tech Adds Equipment for Mold & Die Making

Tooling Tech Group (TTG) has updated and added to its EDM die sinking capability at its Washington, MO, facility where it produces tooling for the die cast and aerospace industries. According to the company, this investment will allow the company to serve its Tier 1 and OEM customers with faster response times at the highest quality.

"With the rapid evolution of large structural castings and our commitment to support these tooling programs, this equipment upgrade just made sense," said Dave Graves, TTG Die Cast Division President. "This allows us to continue to serve our customers at the highest level while expanding capacity for new work."

The new AgiesCharmilles is the company's third large-capacity die sinker, all of which are capable of handling work up to 3,000 kg and a size of up to 1,200 mm x 1,800 mm x 600 mm. Additionally, the two existing machines were upgraded to the latest control level to communize the operation of all the machines and take advantage of the latest in spark control technology.

The sinker EDM process removes material from a workpiece through a series of rapidly recurring current discharges between electrode and workpiece. It is capable of achieving an accuracy of 0.001 mm, making it a key technology in mold and tool making.

This TTG division, which is undergoing a facility expansion, holds ISO9001:2015, AS9100 and DD23454 certifications and has received a Boeing Performance Excellence Award in either the gold or silver category for nine of the last 10 years.
