Tooling

TDM, Troy Design and Manufacturing offers the following in Tooling:

  • Stamping tool design
  • Machined polystyrene patterns
  • Zinc foundry
  • High speed CNC machining
 

HOW ARE DIE CASTINGS PRODUCED

  • A Polystyrene pattern is selected.
  • The pattern is handled with care and packed in sand.
  • The Polystyrene pattern is removed from the mold.
  • Using 'Direct Pour Method' the casting is poured.
  • The casting is then pulled, cleaned, weighed and recorded.

OUR PROCESS

TDM capabilities with over 30 years of expertise in manufacturing and rapid protoype tooling provide unique insights and ability to deliver exceptional customer solutions exceeding customer expectations.
Our Foundry is capable of daily pours upto 60,000 lb. TDM's capabilities in pouring small castings upto bodyside castings, sizes upto 160"L x 32"H X 94"W. From patterns to a complete set of castings within a short time frame.
Our approach to Tooling is as effective as it is simple. Our on-site experienced engineers can refine this process using their knowledge and skills to fine tune and perfect tool designs.

In the next video, we will show the castings tooling process.

Please stay tuned for more videos.
