Die/Mold Industry

Machine-Ready Blanks from TCI Precision Metals help mold shops shorten setup time, reduce scrap, and reduce in-house machining time by eliminating material preparation for a cavity, core, mold blocks, and other components. Made-to-order machine-ready blanks are produced to tight tolerances and exact customer specifications; they are guaranteed to arrive machine-ready for production. 

Every successful mold is dependent on precision engineering and machining of critical components. Precision blanks eliminate the need for in-house sawing, grinding, flattening, squaring operations, and outside processing. Each blank arrives deburred, clean, and individually packaged to avoid damage during shipping. Blanks arrive square, flat, and parallel and are guaranteed as close as +/- .0005” dimensionally and as close as .0002” flatness, squareness, and parallelism. 

Blanks can also be ordered to include added features, such as roughing and hog outs of large amounts of material. This can be beneficial in reducing production time, lowering costs, and improving the quality of components for many mold-making applications, including injection molds, castings, extrusions, compression molds, rubber pad forming, and blow molds.  

Die/mold customers call on us for a range of products and services, including Custom Made-to-Order and standard Ready-to-Ship Machine-Ready Blanks, Feature- Added Blanks (especially for parts requiring extensive hog-outs), and Dovetail Blanks for multi-axis machining.

AS9100C certification reflects our commitment to quality, on-time delivery, and constant improvement.
