Tooling Tech Group Expands Macomb Facility to Accommodate Press

Tooling Tech Group has announced a 70,000 sq. ft. expansion of its Macomb Township Majestic Industries' progressive die and stamping facility to accommodate the installation of a new 2,750 ton Eagle press, as well as providing additional space for its die assembly operations. Known for its expertise in designing and manufacturing progressive dies and short run production, this new equipment will expand Majestic's capabilities into the transfer die business, providing die design, construction, try-out and production of larger components with more complex features.

"This is an exciting addition - there are very few die shops with a press this large," said Tony Seger, Tooling Tech Group Founder and CEO. "This investment enhances our ability to serve our customers as a comprehensive resource regardless of their stamping process while creating entirely new revenue opportunities for this company."

The new Eagle press has a bed size of 280 (L to R) x 108" (F to B), a speed of 10 - 20 SPM and a 36" stroke size. It can handle coils of aluminum or steel in widths up to 72", coil weight of 50,000 lbs. and material, depending upon width and tensile strength, of up to 0.4 mm thick. (0.157"). The company is also investing in the ancillary press equipment including a straightener, feeder, 50,000-lb. capacity coil mandrel for running progressive dies and a linear transfer system for running transfer tooling.

This will be the seventh stamping press in the facility, with the others ranging in capability from 500 to 1,500 tons; all of which are equipped with tonnage monitors and sensors for pre-sample production runs.

Construction of the press pit is currently underway with the press expected to be operational by September 2018.
