Our Diecast Tooling operation has been dedicated exclusively to providing precision-manufactured shot end tooling for the aluminum and magnesium die casting industry since 1973. Our facility located in Racine, Wisconsin is about 25 miles south of Milwaukee. Our customer base encompasses over 100 domestic and international die casting companies representing the automotive, motorcycle, small engine, furniture, lighting, home and industrial products, and other industries.
We specialize in manufacturing customer-engineered shot sleeves, plunger rods, and plunger tips. We also offer shot sleeve reconditioning to help maximize your tooling investment. Our fully-integrated approach to manufacturing drives a cost-effective and responsive organization. Over 125 years of cumulative machining expertise helps us meet your exacting specifications with confidence.
We understand the increasing complexity of tooling design. We can accommodate drawings in any computer-aided design format including NX, Pro-E, Autocad, Solid Edge, and Catia. Our unique blend of technology and craftsmanship make us proud of every piece of tooling we deliver.
Our partnerships are with only select suppliers so that the raw materials and processes used in the manufacture of your tooling are always top-quality. We take pride in our responsiveness, technical support, quick lead-times, and timely deliveries.
Driven by 'relentless innovation' and backed by the full resources of Allegheny Technologies Incorporated, we look forward to being your choice for competitively-priced, high quality shot-end tooling.
We have extensive experience machinining shot sleeves based on collared, threaded, and grooved designs. Our capabilities allow the inclusion of both internal and external thermal control circuits.
There is an opportunity to stretch your tooling investment! ATI Diecast Tooling offers reconditioning services for shot sleeves exhibiting wash-out under the pour hole and general bore deterioration including soldering and pitting. Repair welding, boring, honing, and re-nitriding may restore your worn tooling to like-new performance at a fraction of the cost of a new sleeve. Just ship your sleeve to us for a no-cost evaluation.
We manufacture plunger rods of all sizes and configurations. And, they can be supplied complete with stainless steel water tubes.
We offer H-13 plunger tips machined to your exacting tolerances.
Other Shot End Tooling
We also manufacture other shot-end tooling including split rings, cooling jackets, cooling rings, platen blocks, nozzles, adaptors, gooseneck inserts, and plungers. Feel free to request a quotation for any of your supplemental tooling needs.
ATI offers a full complement of manufacturing capabilities including trepanning, turning, boring, milling, gun drilling, and honing. TIG welding is utilized in the assembly of component shot sleeves and also in the refurbishment process. Metal properties are optimally enhanced by our strictly-controlled heat treating and nitriding processes.
