Olympic Tool & Die Inc. covers all aspects of manufacturing and designing as a tool and dies maker. We offer the following:
Progressive dies consist of a series of operations in which one stroke follows the other. The workpiece stays attached to the base while different strokes perform the functions. With each stroke, the piece moves towards completion. Progressive dies increase the punching productivity and work efficiently.
Transfer die is similar to progressive die except that an individual unit works on each part. The parts have to be transported to multiple stations designated for all the operations; one station performs one stroke.
Draw dies punch into the metal sheet to form a shape. It takes control of the boundary and holds it firmly with a blank holder.
Forming dies are similar to stencils but in industrial size. It is a manufacturing tool that presses hard into the metal and gives it specific shapes.
Roll forming is another approach used for metal shaping. This process involves the continuous bending of long metal strips with a set of rollers.
Prototypes are referred to as early models of a product built for testing. It demonstrates the process and purpose of that product before its launch.
Blanking dies are used for cutting the metal piece. It produces a flat piece of material in the desired shape by cutting it in one operation. It only cuts the edges and is not used for parts with internal features.
Swage Dies Compound
It is another technique for metal formation. The edges or dimensions of the metal are deformed to fit around another part by pressing it.
Dies Secondary Operation
Dies secondary operations include those processes that are done after the initial manufacturing operations. It improves the quality and gives a finishing look to the products.
