Tool & Die Making

How can we serve you?

Since 1988, Tool & Die making has been at the core of everything we do at Wisconsin Metal Parts. Our full service, in-house tool room can provide you with:

  • Stamping & Forming Dies
  • Prototypes
  • Inspection Gages & Fixtures
  • Die Repair and Maintenance

We have knowledgeable staff available to guide you from concept through production. Our engineering team can assist with material selection and identify potential problem areas to help you best design your metal part or assembly for manufacturability. We staff a full service, in-house tool room that designs and builds prototypes, “Class A,” progressive, single-hit, form, draw, insertion, in-die tapping, fine blank, compound dies and more. We also design and build inspection gages, fixtures and components as well as perform die repairs and maintenance. We have an active Tool & Die Apprenticeship program to continuously develop our next generation of tool makers.

Wisconsin Metal Parts is ISO 9001:2015 and ITAR certified. Cyber security is approved to NIST SP800-171 so your export restricted (ITAR) files are always secure.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of tools do you build?

Our main competency is progressive dies, but we build other dies such as draw, deep draw, single hit, compound, fine blank, transfer and a variety of other tools.

Yes, we have a full-service tool room that includes design and build.

Tooling is custom to the part that it is producing, so that will be completely driven by your part print. We have built tooling that makes parts so small that several could fit on a dime. We have also built tooling that makes larger parts, up to .25” thick. We are only limited by tonnage, which is currently 200 tons.

Depending on the project, lead times could be a few weeks to several months, depending on the size and complexity of the tooling.

Yes, we have presses with full feed lines. Our team will debug and get tooling running acceptable parts at production rate before shipping your tooling.

Our tool team leaders send out weekly progress reports showing planned and actual progress. If we are behind, we will communicate that and share our plan to get caught up.

We do make prototypes here. Some might be parts that you just want to hold in your hand and can be produced by any means economical. Or they could be pre-production proto types that need to be produced by actual tooling to be used for testing. We can handle a wide variety of prototyping requirements and inspection options.

Typically, a PPAP is performed by the company that is running the production. If we are building the tool and running it here then we would take care of the PPAP, if that is required. If you (or someone else) are planning to run the production, we will normally provide First Article parts and inspection data from our runoff before shipping the tool. This process is most often driven by individual customer requirements.
