Design & Manufacturing of Progressive Die with Tapped Holes

A manufacturer in the automotive industry selected A-G Tool & Die, a division of Seilkop Industries, Inc. to design and build a progressive die that incorporated tapped holes into a stamped part that would eliminate tapping the holes in a separate, off-line operation. Our on site, design staff worked with the customer as well as the tapping unit supplier to develop a specialized die to the customer's standards, including mechanical design and simulation of the entire part forming process. Utilizing state-of-the-art wire EDM and milling techniques, the A-2, D-2, and cold rolled steels were experty manipulated and assembled to their final configurations. A tight tolerance of ±0.004” was held throughout the part, having overall dimensions of 6” in length, 2” in width, and 3” in height.

Integrity and accuracy were ensured with comprehensive dimensional and functionality testing. Turnaround time for this project was 18 weeks, with 150,000 units produced annually. Seilkop is an experienced producer of specialized manufacturing solutions, prepared to collaborate with customers to execute their complex or unusual requests.
