TOOL ROOM

 

We are confident to say that we have one of the most complete and versatile tool rooms in

The State of South Carolina. Our capabilities include, but are not limited to the following:

 

                                * *  Machined parts per print or samples

                                * *  Jigs and Fixtures

                                * *  Gauges with in-house Certification from our Quality dept. 

                                * *  Die repairs and/ or manufacturing, small or large, assisted by our 7-1/2 ton

                                        and two 15 ton overhead cranes             

                        * *  Special machine manufacturing or refurbishing

                                * *  Automation and Integration

 

All of our products mentioned above are enhanced by the following services, although they are also

Offered on a stand-alone basis:

We invite all types of inquiries and requests for quotations. We stand behind our products and our quality, and pride ourselves in being the best solution to your manufacturing needs. 

 

CNC DEPARTMENT

 

Our CNC department is made up of a select group of machinery coupled with well-trained personnel. The department consists of machining centers, turning centers, wire EDM machines, a turret press and an array of off-line secondary equipment. All programming is accomplished by our CAM package, “Surfcam V6”. Programming is loaded via “Cimmco “ DNC software. This software has the capability to drip-feed (64) machines at the same time.

 

American Tool & Die also has 3-D machining capability via the “Surfcam V6” software. This software package allows us to program 3-D shapes such as molds, form dies, etc. All of our computer hardware is networked so the data transfer is much faster. We are also tied into a coordinate measuring machine, where we can take any 3-D shape, digitize it into points, down load to our CAD package and create intricate surface models. We then use Surfcam V6”to create G-code cutter paths, which are then stored on the server.

Once on the server the “Cimmco” package sends the g-code to the CNC machines to duplicate the digitized component.

 

 QUALITY CONTROL DEPARTMENT

 

We have a complete quality department whose duties include receiving materials and Final Inspection. We are ISO 9001 certified.

 

Receiving Inspection

A running log is maintained of all purchased material that requires traceability and their certifications maintained. This material must be verified prior to manufacturing to ensure correct sizes and type of material. This information is logged for tracking purposes.

 

Final Inspection

Samplings of parts are pulled for inspection per customer requirements or 2.5 AQL. Parts are inspected visually for burrs, cracks, slug marks, etc. Actual inspection of all relevant dimensions is per blueprint and customer’s requirements.

 

Calibration

All equipment used for final acceptance of product is calibrated to national or international standards. ATD keeps a master QC equipment list, which assigns each piece of equipment an identification number, which is used on all calibration records. The list allows the inspection personnel to maintain rigorous schedules on keeping the calibration equipment in calibration. A calibration control card is issued for each piece of equipment, as well as an individual decal on each piece of equipment. 

 

PRESS ROOM and FABRICATION DEPARTMENT

 

We have presses that range from 12 tons to 600 tons. Although we have many high-volume production parts, we specialize in short-run stamping projects. We have developed a process for low-volume stamping that enables us to keep costs down, and efficiencies high.

 

Our support area for secondary operations consists of manual Diacro presses, drill presses, manual notchers, shears, brake presses, multi-spindle drill presses, rotary and vibratory deburring equipment, and various heat treat ovens.

 

We are also experienced with assembly, sub-assembly, soldering, brazing, spot-welding, production welding, and we have experience with all types of various materials.  Our fully equipped tool room supports our fabrication department for emergency repairs or any required fabrication of tooling. Our design department is available for any required flat blank layouts, engineering changes or development issues. 

 

DESIGN DEPARTMENT

 

Our Design department has CAD designers available to work directly with our customers, analyzing their requirements, presenting a concept, and able to provide a complete turn-key project based on the customer’s needs.

 

ATD has full CAD/CAM design capability utilizing “Solidworks 2010”, “Autocad 2010” and “Surfcam Velocity 4” as our design software. All of our CAD systems are networked to our CNC, QC and Manufacturing Departments.

 

Whether the designing is for our own in-house needs or as a service to our clients, we are confident of the product and service we provide.
