Two Types of Machining
When it comes to machining there are two types of parts. Machine parts and end-use parts. When you come to Cliff for replacement parts for household items or to have threads cleaned up on garage door opener you are getting the end product. This kind of part is not designed to make more parts it is made to be used. The other kind of part is a machine part. This would be a shaft for a roller, a gear for a motor or a bushing for a shaft. These parts run machines and generally aid in making more parts. There is another type of machine part that requires the tightest tolerances of all. This is tool and die work.
What is Tool and Die Work?
Tool and die making is a class of machining used to create jigs, fixtures, molds, tools and, injection parts. These are all very critically dimensional parts as they dictate the quality of your final parts. If your die is wrong it can cost you thousands in re-tooling and faulty parts. That’s why it is so critical to make sure you go to the right people the first time. With our staff of veteran tool and die makers we are sure that your parts will come out exactly to drawing the first time.
