Precision Machining as it Relates to Molds, Dies and Build to Print Tooling

5-Axis CNC Machined H13 Hot Stamp Block for the Automotive Industry

(click on thumbnail to enlarge)

B&J Specialty, Inc. we are confident in our knowledge of materials, molds, dies, and build to print tooling. We have embraced technological advances in all aspects of designing, building, and repairing tools and have the ability to fabricate geometrically complex tooling to within exacting tolerances.

Working with H13 tool steel, a chromium-molybdenum alloy ideal for hot work tooling applications, we fabricated the stamping die pictured here for use in the manufacturing of automotive inner body panels. Featuring overall dimensions of 11.60" in length, 9.05" in width, and 6.80" in height, we utilized our 5-axis hyper machining center to drill the deep, compound angle intersecting holes as well as form the surface features. The continuous and efficient 3D process enabled us to complete the job in a single setup and achieve a high-quality finish that reduced the amount of time and effort needed for secondary finishing operations. Dimensional, visual, CMM, and gage inspections verified that we met the ± 0.0002" tolerance requirement.

We manufactured 30 of these dies in a 90-day period according to the customer's delivery schedule. If your next project requires machining of geometrically complicated three-dimensional components, we invite to Contact Us to learn more about our expert services.
