Compound Dies / Tooling

Compound Die Stamping is the process where the die separates or blanks the part from a steel strip in one stroke. A Compound Die will perform multiple cuts or punches in one stroke, as compared to multiple strokes. This is a very cost effective method for stamping medium to high volume parts while keeping labor and die costs down. Compound Dies are often used to stamp simpler flat parts such as washers.

Here at DACO Precision-Tool it’s our goal to design and build our Compound Dies to exceed 100 strokes per minute to support high volume production. We can achieve this by building in sensors and other accessories to protect the die from damage. Cycle time is always kept in mind when designing and building our Compound Die tooling. We can build the die to stamp the part at the accuracy you need.

Parts are produced when the feed system pushes (strip or coil stock) of raw material into the Compound Die; at each stroke or cycle a finished flat part will blanked or released from the raw material. The feed rate of the material is determined by the size of the part. Larger parts need more time to exit the die, where smaller parts exit quicker allowing for faster run times. Typically, compound dies do not require a cut-off station because the parts are blanked through from the strip, but many times is added to help manage scrap material. Finished parts will be removed from the die by a knock-out and will fall onto a chute or slider where they flow into the collection bin. The scrap will exit the die in strip form or in piece form depending on if you’ve included a scrap cut-off station. Scrap can be collected in bins or hoppers on the exit end of the die.

Or if you have tooling that isn’t running right, or as quickly as you need or desire; let DACO Precision-Tool troubleshoot, modify, and repair existing tooling to get it up and running to a higher production rate for you.
