Tooling for manufacture: A guide to the engineering process
The term ‘tooling’ essentially describes the process required to design and engineer the tools that are necessary to manufacture parts or components. The quality of the finished part, its properties, the speed and accuracy with it can be produced and the repeatability of manufacture in high volume production runs, all depend on the precision and characteristics of the tooling.
The objective of good tooling design is to produce tools that are safe to use, while ensuring that finished parts are engineered consistently to the required quality and specifications, in the volumes and lead times expected by the customer and at the most competitive cost.
This whitepaper from Dawson Shanahan provides a guide to the engineering process of tooling for manufacture.
