FA/SMS has a highly skilled team of designers and engineers who have
the capability and experience to design tooling for the most complex
stamped parts in the industry. In the design phase, the team fully
validates processes with forming simulation software. A fully
detailed 3D design is created and reviewed with the customer prior to
manufacturing. During development the design team uses laser
scanners and reverse engineering software to optimize part
quality. ”Lessons learned” from our own production environment are used
to produce a robust, maintainable die that runs at rate and within spec.
On an ongoing basis, FA/SMS will introduce new processes, commercial
components, tool steels and coatings in its own production environment
first. Providing these successes to our customers in all
new die designs.
