When a particularly complicated die is required, the progressive die process is often considered. There are many decisions and compromises involved when producing a part using progressive dies. Knowing in advance what the process entails is a great advantage. Abbott Tool & Die can help with this decision which is usually determined by two primary factors including the volume to be produced and the complexity of the part. Once these factors are identified, they are instrumental in designing and constructing the tooling process.
Abbott will work with you to address all factors in order to consider part quality, tool maintenance, and tooling life. Before everything is finalized, trade-offs will be required as each decision will affect tooling costs.
