Middleville Tool & Die has developed a reputation for proactively partnering with our customers to develop innovative solutions to the industries most complex problems. MTD’s team of product engineers work side by side with our customers to find new ways to improve performance, reduce weight, improve quality, and reduce cost on new and existing products.
Serving as an extension of our customers engineering team, MTD has developed a unique process for developing and implementing solutions not commonly found in the metal stamping industry. Our closed loop development process allows us to take a part from concept to production in less time and at a lesser cost than our competition.
MTD’s in-house prototype and R&D facility is uniquely positioned to compliment our product development and tooling capabilities. Our ability to develop and validate our product designs in-house allows us to meet the industry’s most aggressive development schedules.
All prototype processes are developed with hard tool intent, allowing MTD to validate the proposed mass production tooling process early in the development cycle. Further, we are able to provide our customers with mass production representative parts for product validation (PV) and design validation (DV) testing, resulting in reduced risk of product and process failure later in the development cycle.
MTD specializes in the simulation, design, and build of progressive dies, line dies and transfer dies for our in-house production needs as well as for our contract tooling customers.
Utilizing our in-house FEA software (PamStamp) MTD is capable of full product and process simulations. Tooling designs are completed by our seasoned tooling design engineers using SolidWorks software.
MTD’s structured design review process solicits input from a cross functional team of designers, tool makers, engineers, manufacturing and quality experts to ensure that the proposed process will meet or exceed the most stringent requirements.
Middleville Tool & Die’s manufacturing capabilities include progressive & transfer press stamping (60 to 1100 ton), manual & robotic welding (resistance, MIG, TIG, Plasma, Laser), tapping, riveting, automated & hand assembly.
MTD is IATF:16949 certified and has a state of the art quality lab. Our commitment to LEAN principals has allowed us to continually find new ways to drive waste out of our manufacturing processes.
Producing parts from low carbon steel, AHSS, UHSS, aluminum and stainless steel in gages ranging from .020” to .314” (0.5mm – 8mm) MTD has the requisite experience to support the needs of our customers no matter what industry they serve.
