New Technology: Hard Machining
Doutt Tool offers advanced technology to replace EDM and traditional form grinding with milling and turning operations on pre-hardened tool steels ranging to 66 HRc.
Milling replaces EDM sinking, saving electrode machining and setup costs.
Turning replaces conventional grinding, production is up to five times faster.
The machine>harden>grind production cycle is broken, high stock removal rates and a high quality finish means that time consuming edm and grinding processes are reduced or eliminated on steel tooling.
Our investment in equipment and training will reduce your costs and shorten delivery times.
We know that running production machines 24/7 demands 100% reliable and interchangeable tooling, so we guarantee every part we supply to our customers.
We also guarantee that, if ever you have a problem, you won't get evasive answers from us because our long term future in this business depends entirely on your success.
Doutt Tool Inc is an ISO 9001:2008 registered company.
Doutt Tool will reduce your tooling costs, we analyze every job quote and choose the most cost effective production method consistent with your specified tolerances and surface finish.
That means we never wire edm a part just because it's easier to cost out and program.
We select the machining operation that best suits your design, and whether milling, grinding, edm or jig grinding, our fast, expert machining translates into dollars saved on your budget.
We can often help by suggesting alternative tooling methods to suit your requirements.
For example, we prototyped various shapes to help solve a die packing problem, one version solved the problem and increased tool life by 300% between regrinds, then tweaking the locking feature gave three more regrinds to the working life of the component.
Of course we sold fewer dies, but we prefer that when it's Doutt's name on your tooling.
These improvements generated more new business for us - a good result all round.
In another instance, during a brief discussion with the designer, we identified one excessively tight tolerance on a component. A minor change of .0002" to .002" slashed thirty percent off the price he expected to pay without compromising the design quality.
Just two small partnership success stories, but it's small wins like these that are saving our customers thousands of dollars on their engineering budgets every year.
We also deliver savings by calculating the most economical batch sizes for your spares orders, we can arrange to have parts plated or coated for you to reduce your handling costs.
For established customers, we can take advantage of the economics of manufacture and keep your spares held ready for immediate delivery. Thus you
can spread your purchasing outlay and we can pass on real cash savings to be made against set up costs.
Now it's possible to keep your spares inventory low without risk to your production capabilities while at the same time reducing your overall maintenance operating costs.
