ATS Modular Tool

Low-Volume Parts

Making the parts you need

When end users run into the problem of finding manufacturers to produce parts that have become obsolete by their OEM, or the OEM no longer exist, it can be frustrating to get back on track and keep moving.

When a manufacturer needs a short run of sheet metal stamped parts, it does not make sense to invest in a full die due to potential part changes or just a low-volume of quantities needed.

TSG member companies can provide the solution for both of these problems. Whether it is through our modular tooling or competitively priced contract machining, we can create:

  • Prototypes
  • Early parts
  • Short run and low-volume manufacturing (under 20,000 units)
  • Non-current production parts
  • Re-engineered parts

Even in the absence of data, TSG member companies can bring some parts back to life and re-create it using their CMM equipment and engineering experience.


Modular Tooling

Using their knowledge for die tooling, the TSG member companies push to create a tool that could be available for short run and prototype stamping, as well as being reusable for different applications and future re-runs.

The result from this push is our modular stamping die. The modular tooling gives TSG member companies a great advantage for:

  • Testing out complex draws and forms without investing in a complete tool
    • details from tool can be transferred to final stamping die tool for mass production
  • Creating prototype parts efficiently
  • Producing early parts quickly
    • aid in part development and engineering with physical parts
  • Reusability for future demand of low volume production

Given the flexibility of this modular tooling approach, TSG member companies can run low volume production up to 20,000 units annually.

Best of all, the customer need not buy or store the tooling since it is already factored into the piece price and can be shelved at a TSG member company facility for future production.
