Our Process:

Starting with conception and quoting, through project management, up to die runoff, A-G Tool and Die offers exceptional in-house engineering and design services. By having our designers on-site, A-G Tool & Die is able to communicate inherent problems that occur during manufacturing. This capability allows us the opportunity to update designs to reflect these changes.

Our Sales, Design and Engineering Staff:

  • 4 sales engineers - 85 years of combined experience
  • 5 designers - almost sixty years of experience
  • Forming simulation software- Autoform Simulation Software 
  • Capable of reading many file types
  • 3-D design - Solidworks

In-House Transfer Simulator

By being proactive during the design phase, we can decrease time spent for development, setup and debug, translating our advantage into your cost-savings. Customers are always receptive to saving time and money typically associated with setting up new projects.

We have designed and built our own in-house transfer simulator. Our in-house transfer simulator allows A-G Tool & Die to trouble-shoot any clearance problems before we get to the customer's facility. Prior to shipment, the setup and runoff of the automatic transfer/tooling at the customer's facility is kept to a minimum by utilizing A-G's in-house designed and built simulator. The simulator mounts the arms and fingers, in an open forum, to tool-made parts, gauged in their corresponding station, presented to the fingers for pickup and transfer. The finger configurations, lift, clearances, pitch, lowering, rough gauging, and finger/arm retraction all can be checked and tuned or modified on A-G's floor.

Simulation Software

A-G Tool & Die offers our customers simulation software. This software can accurately predict stock widths, blank optimizations, and verify that a part can be produced to part print before the start of design or manufacture, saving both A-G and the customer time and money. This simulation software offers the opportunity to verify that a part can be produced to part print before the start of design or manufacturing, saving the customer time and money and increasing their internal productivity.
