ACF was established to provide the cold forming industry with professional engineering support on all brands of machines. We are skilled in helping customers successfully form difficult parts.
ACF is supported by over 50 years of TOOL DESIGN engineering and PART DEVELOPMENT experience in the cold forming industry.
Aware of how dies fail in production, we draw from a wealth of experience to create greater production efficiency through a combination of proven tool design techniques and the art of a balanced and well thought out forming sequence. We design tools that can be manufactured at a reasonable price and believe will provide you with improved tool life.
Both 2D and 3D metal forming simulations are available (additional charge) to solve existing problematic tooling issues or to verify a forming sequence proposed by either a customer or ACF. All ACF designs are fully modeled and assembled in 3D for accuracy before they are manufactured. Our overall process results in less time required grooming the tools the first time installed in your machine.
Customers have the choice to order tools from their own tool supplier or ACF can recommend a qualified supplier. Options for part development assistance are available on all jobs. Complete tool design packages is our specialty.
