Alpha Sintered Metals in-house Design and Tooling capability offers a distinct competitive advantage. Our prototype tooling program allows us offer production intent samples in a shortened lead time. This provides our customers the opportunity to test and validate samples and provides real world engineering feedback.
We work closely with our customer to provide the most robust economical component designs
Our in house design staff creates the tool design concept
Stress and deflection analysis are performed on critical components
A virtual tool assembly is created to validate tool stack ups and clearances
Engineering drawings are created for tool components and tooling layout in production
ASM’s in-house design team utilizes a cross functional approach supported by Siemens “Solid Edge” CAD software to design and model all customer tool requirements ranging from single level to complex multi-level tool sets. Optimized tool design combined with Siemens NX
CAM and Camnetics “Gear Trax” software minimizes design and programming time resulting in industry-leading turnaround times.
