feed progressive dies
Because of the size of these dies and the precision required, they generally represent a large investment. Clearly, for small quantities of parts, a large investment in tooling is a disadvantage. However, for large quantities of complex parts, the progressive die is a tremendous advantage in overall cost.
We've produced progressive dies with up to 5 stages, producing parts complete that would otherwise have required as many as 4 secondary operations. One advantage that we have over other shops in the area of progressive dies is our CNC servo feed, advancing the material with a precision of .0002 inches. This not only improves the accuracy of the locations of the features in the workpiece, but it also prevents costly mis-hits that can damage tooling.
