Lean Tool and Die Making
Our continuing development of G Corp's proprietary Die Factory System (DFS) has resulted in a total system methodology for diemakers and moldmakers to utilize in all aspects of their operations, including obtaining the RFQ, cost estimating, obtaining order and entry into a manufacturing system.

Scheduling and tracking of job progress, engineering, design, material ordering and delivery from reliable suppliers get the project off to a fast start. Receiving of raw materials, patterns, castings and components, optimized machining processes prepares the job for minimal handwork before assembly. We assist in tryouts, adjustments, sample runoffs, and final buyoff and shipping.

We also aid clients with accounts receivable collection and tryout in the customers' home press line and obtain feedback after initial production runs. These steps are all performed in a Lean process which affords the client a high quality, low cost and very short delivery. Typical domestic costs can usually be slashed by 25 to 50 percent, and delivery times are cut by as much as 75 percent. Results of this proper application of Lean principles to the tool and die industry enable shops to reduce costs competitive with shops in low labor cost countries and much shorter delivery times. It is well worth your time to investigate the possibilities for your operation.

All of this effort takes the total system approach of G Corp's DFS, along with a significant amount of time to custom-develop, because each shop's equipment, plant layout, personnel, size and product family types is unique. Customization can be done in a short time and a few, well-chosen targets generate a substantial initial bottom line impact, large enough to fund the entire cost of installing the DFS.
