The Tool Room is equipped with new state of the art EDM machines, surface grinders and Mills. Bazz Houston has also recently added a new EDM Machine in the Tooling Department. This new equipment in conjunction with the existing equipment allows Bazz Houston to produces standardized tooling to customer specification within 6-8 weeks . This turnaround time may be reduced further under certain circumstances.
Bazz Houston as a full staff of Tooling designers. Bazz Houston specializes in Progressive Dies, Fourslide Dies, Compound Dies & Single Die Line.
We also offers analysis in the early design stage of various material alternatives such as exotic & common metals including titanium, inconel, stainless steel, high & low carbon steels, beryllium copper, galvanized & silver plated materials.
Bazz Houston’s standardized tooling improves our lead times and enables us to better service our customers.
Standardized tooling with quick change inserts allows us to minimize down time.
Three sets of standardized tooling: Small Die Set (14 x 20), Medium Die Set (16 x 24) and Large Die Set (18 x 28)
This utilizes the same metal used for all Bazz Houston’s tooling but it comprises single hit tools that are not put into the die set. This allows Bazz Houston to modify the part relatively easily for customer changes. The average charge for a progressive die is approximately $30,000, whereas soft tooling can cost as little as $3,000. While not suitable for every part, it can often be useful in verifying the design and ensuring smooth transition from tooling to full production.
Fourslide vs. Stamping with progressive dies:
Fourslide is similar to stamping, except it's on a smaller scale for smaller parts. Therefore, the tooling is less expensive. Many parts that can be stamped can be made on a fourslide machine. One advantage of this process is that less material waste.
