West Michigan Tool & Die has a mission to continue the excellent reputation, quality and integrity of the molds produced.  By putting our customers’ needs first and by retaining the best employees in the industry, this goal will continue to be a reality.

Prototype

We can provide 100% CMM layout or scanning, x-rays – fluoroscope or film, impregnation, flow analysis, heat-treating, machining as well as surface coating or anodizing. Our engineering and quality team will aid you in design, testing and verifying the pre-production parts.

Prototype Tooling

Currently we have five various sized mold bases that we adapt to retain P-20 cavity inserts for prototype die cast runs, but we also can build custom mold bases for parts that exceed our mold bases in size of number slides. Often our own mold bases can be adapted for parts with slides or in open/shut configuration. 

Production Tooling

WMTD has been building production, multi-cavity, high pressure die cast tooling for various industries since 1977. Our tools are used for running low, medium, and high volume production of various alloys of aluminum, zinc, and magnesium. High quality materials and experienced heat treatment are used throughout the mold builds extending the expected life of the tooling and delaying the need for repairs.

Low Volume Production

WMTD is the vendor of choice to many OEMs that require Level 2 to Level 5 PPAP, in billet machined, lathe turned, or high pressure die castings. Value added processes that we offer are wide ranging. Currently we have projects with vibratory deburring, machining, dimensional tracking of critical characteristics, assembly, kitting, laser engraving, serialization, and leak checking.

Tooling Repair

West Michigan Tool & Die’s skill craftsmen can make repairs from 3D cavity data, part data or even part prints by remodeling the necessary area of repair, through reverse engineering. Our outstanding capabilities consist of welding various grades of tool steel, tool pathing, cutting or EDM burning, surface treatment, polishing and stress relieving.  WMTD is highly sensitive to returning tooling to service in a timely manner and works closely with our client’s operations managers to fulfill their needs.
