What is Toolmaking Design?
Tooling design is defined as “…. a specialized area of manufacturing engineering which comprises the analysis, planning, design, construction and application of tools, methods and procedures necessary to increase manufacturing productivity.” [Dr. Nageswara Rao Posinasetti]
Designers ensure that the tools they design:
- Produce the workpieces / end products at the lowest practical cost
- Has the highest production rates
- Produce the workpiece / end product with a consistent level of quality
- Are safe and easy to operate
TMP’s design team can provide you with a design only solution; however, we believe one of the real benefits of working with TMP is the ability to provide the customer with a full end-to-end service including design, tool manufacture, prototype / pre-production run off and if required installation and commissioning. This integrated approach allows for much smoother and cost reduced on the fly” changes to be made, project scope creep or workpiece design modification.
Yes; TMP’s design systems are able to work with customer supplied drawings, CAD files etc. and via our Autodesk Vault software package and IT security protocols, you can be assured of both data security / integrity and version control.
TMP can produce a broad range of toolmaking solutions.
