Over the past 50 years, our long running dies have produced dimensionally accurate castings and plastics components across a wide spectrum of industries.
The tool and die industry holds bright promise for those who invest time in learning the trade. Talk to Hanson about our Apprenticeship Program.
Utilizing the latest in computer aided design (CAD) technology, our designers assess potential problems and facilitate communications between our sales project engineers and your engineering department. This ensures that a quality tool is produced. Extensive thought and attention to detail are the keys to Hanson Mold’s die design and engineering reputation.
Hanson Mold’s experienced engineering staff has earned a reputation in the mold and die industry for designing premium, reliable, and maintainable tools. Our engineers consider all aspects of the die design, including castability improvements, flow and thermal analysis, material specifications, customer standards, preferred components, and unique preferences.
The 3D part model is considered the master model and is central to the data that supports the design. Once the part model is complete, the die is designed in solids, which generate the associated manufacturing models and 2D drawings. The data generated provides long term support for the tool, with complete and accurate 2D drawings in the required customer format.
After our engineering and design teams finalize the die design, our programmers create tool paths that maximize efficiency and accuracy. Upon using simulation software to verify the accuracy of these tool paths, the programs are sent across our network to the correct machine. Our goal is to ensure that our customers get the world-class tooling they deserve.
Hanson Mold’s attention to quality begins with an organized and experienced die design and engineering staff who specialize in understanding each customer’s specific requirements. We use only SolidWorks, NX, and Catia software programs. With a growing team of dedicated design engineers, we design and build our own dies or build to your existing design. We welcome your visit to our engineering department to ensure both engineering transparency, and your involvement and collaboration with our design team.
