CWM's superior-grade tool steel is 100% certified. Die casting tooling microstructure must have uniform carbide distribution, free of internal defects, to insure against premature failure.

CWM uses a rigid set of die casting tooling standards for all tools. With a disciplined tooling manufacturing process, you can be assured of consistent manufacturing rates, predictable tool life and efficient production runs. This translates into meeting your quality, delivery, and budgetary goals.
An Added Layer of Protection for Your Die Cast Tool Investment
The initial investment in a die cast tool is significant compared to other project costs. CWM offers a way to extend the life of the die cast tooling by treating the tool’s surface with a duplex coating process, which is particularly useful for high volume applications. This extra layer of protection provides the following benefits:
- High layer hardness – protects the die against abrasive wear and heat-checks
- Excellent thermal and chemical stability – reduces soldering in the die casting process
- Low coefficient of friction – improves part ejection from the die and reduces the tool wear
