MTD has long been known for its skilled journeyman tool and die makers, educated through a rigorous, state-approved apprentice program. Along with a host of specialized technicians, MTD can successfully complete difficult projects, involving the art of skilled tool making.
Dies are tested in Bruderer high-speed presses. Press bed sizes range from 23” to 57”, tonnage from 15 to 90 and speeds from single stroke to 1200 spm. During the test period any engineering corrections are addressed and tooling prints updated. Customers often request that dies be tested at full production speeds to produce several million parts.
Midwest Tool & Die’s commitment to Quality remains unparalleled among tool and die manufactures. MTD maintains its ISO9001:2000 accreditation through advanced product quality planning and six sigma capability.
