Tooling Transfer Projects at Deco Products

Deco Products has been a prominent player in the zinc die casting industry since 1960. Our success in this industry is attributed to our systems, equipment, and operational and engineering expertise. Which allows us to undertake stress-free and expedited tooling transfer projects. 

Key to Deco Products Success 

One of the key reasons behind our continued success is our debt-free practices. Our financial stability allows us to maintain our operations in both calm and challenging times. We can continue to provide reliable services to our customers, regardless of the economic climate.  


Simple Tooling Transfer Process 

The tooling transfer process at Deco Products is simple yet effective. First, our engineering team will review part and other specifications and requirements for the design. We will ask questions and gather information on the tool that is being transferred before the tool is delivered. When the tool is received we will review the tool and determine if any adaptations are needed. 

Our team has decades of experience in tooling transfer projects. Which allows us to quickly identify any potential issues and develop an appropriate plan to address them.  

Next, Deco will size the part for one of our many zinc die casting machines. With over 100 die cast machines, we are likely well positioned to have the proper equipment to fit and run the existing mold. 

Ensuring a seamless and efficient transfer process, If any modification is required, it can easily be taken care of in our on-site tool room. Utilizing an on-site tool room saves our customers time and money. Visit our tooling page for more information. 


Tooling Transfer for Zinc Die Casting 

Tooling can then be sampled in an efficient and production representative way. With our many machines, we have the capacity to quickly sample the tooling without interrupting other scheduled production jobs. Samples are then verified in our on-site QA lab to ensure the parts meet the customer requirements and Deco’s high standards.
