In-House Tooling

Innovative in-house tooling capabilities and technical expertise drive production quality and timeliness.

Customers can count on Rotor Clip’s adaptive in-house tooling and process design capabilities to satisfy their unique requirements reliably and with the highest quality.

We focus on the most important parameters of the job to better control and place key systems, ensuring a steady flow of product types and sizes while following IATF 16949 guidelines for building and modifying tools. The result is a continuously innovative in-house tooling operation that meets customer demand for highly engineered parts and timely production.

Inside our sophisticated tool rooms, Rotor Clip engineers build high-speed, progressive dies using 3D printers and modeling software to solve spatial challenges and CNC machines to generate prototypes and wire electrical discharge machining (EDM). This means we produce parts to tight tolerances with good surface finishes. Not only do we have the equipment and expertise to transform catalog parts into custom parts, we catalog the die inserts, models and tooling as well as carry an abundant stock of high-grade steels and master coils. This vertically integrated operation lets us produce parts and prototypes faster than creating new die, and you can implement them much earlier versus suppliers who outsource their tooling.
