Stamping Dies

Building sheet metal stamping dies and tooling has been the heart of TSG since the first member company, Advanced Tooling Systems (ATS) began in 1983 as a tool and die shop. TSG member companies have gained worldwide recognition for building dies that meet stringent OEM and supplier standards.

Using lean manufacturing, continuous evaluation of our process, and best practices learned throughout the member stamping die companies, we have decreased our costs and delivery time.  This gives you the tools you need for less.

Service, Repair, Maintenance Programs

Downtime kills any manufacturer. Properly maintaining, servicing and repairing your tooling insures that it will run for longer and give you more life time, which means savings to your bottom line.

In the TSG, we can create a service and maintenance program for domestic, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese style tooling with:

  • Diagnostic review of dies and tooling
  • Inspection and sharpening of tooling
  • Quick repair of broken parts and dies
  • 24/7 emergency service

Tryout and Runoff Capabilities

With 20 presses (up to 2,500-tons and 108" x 200" bed) and a variety of heavy-duty equipment, we can keep die builds moving without having to wait for tryout presses to be available. Working together, our die shops can utilize each other’s equipment, as well as the TSG tryout facility when their own capacity becomes full.
