[Download] Understand the precision and characteristics of tooling

Are you looking to sell upwards in the supply chain? Are you in need of advice to help you navigate the tooling process? 


Tooling comes in many different types, of which the most common are:


  • Work holding tools, such as jigs and fixtures
  • Cutting tools for milling, turning and grinding machines
  • Punching dies for cold forming, forging and extrusion machines and presswork
  • Sheet metal welding fixtures
  • Inspection fixtures


The term ‘tooling’ describes the process required to design and engineer the tools that are necessary to manufacture parts or components. The quality of the finished part, its properties, the speed and accuracy with it can be produced and the repeatability of manufacture in high volume production runs, all depend on the precision and characteristics of the tooling.
