If you don’t find your industry here, chances are we’ve done your kind of work. Give us a call and tell us what you need – we’ll tell you right away if we can help you.
Why do we do so much of this work? Our experience is of course a plus, but also important is our expertise with large dies, since many appliance parts require large tooling. We routinely make dies 10-12 feet in length, and have built them up to 20 feet long, in sections.
These parts are often composed of thin material, so a great deal of tonnage is required to stamp them out. Close tolerances are critical. The expertise of Minnesota Tool’s designers and toolmakers, along with our state-of-the-art equipment, enable us to maintain the tolerances that these dies require.
Big dies are often needed here–up to 30,000 pounds, heavy-duty, heavy gauge, up to 3/4″ thick. We have decades of experience in the design and building of large dies, plus the equipment needed to handle them: large CNC machining centers, an EDM room with heavy-gauge capabilities, large try-out presses, and a 20-ton hoist lifter.
