Employees of Dove Die & Stamping are the company’s greatest asset toward ensuring the best stamped products. Well-versed in customer requirements, they know what to look for as each part navigates its way through the Dove Die & Stamping facility. Each worker is personally responsible for product qualitythroughout the manufacturing cycle.
With worker safety as the cornerstone, Dove Die & Stamping strives to use preventive and predictive maintenance to run a first-class facility that is focused on continued customer satisfaction and on-time delivery. The facility takes great pride in working towards continuous productivity improvement so that Dove Die & Stamping can remain adaptable to customer business needs in order to provide premiere products and remain a reliable and steadfast partner.
Inspections are conducted throughout the manufacturing process. All parts that come off the Minster and Aida stamping lines go through attribute gage and/or CMM inspections. As parts are packaged for shipment, all products receive a dock audit by inspection teams that are trained in the customer’s priorities and know how to ensure only the best parts make the final shipment.
The in-house tooling department at Dove Die & Stamping ensures a controlled creation of the die, as well as predictive tool maintenance that leads to higher quality parts and less service interruptions. Any die can be remade and/or fixed from a print, since CAD drawings are on-site and the Tooling Room has an inventory of spare parts, which also alleviates downtime. Even most unique and specialty parts are kept in inventory – all dies are unique and carry many unique parts. Dove Die & Tooling is prepared for all scenarios.
The facility is ISO 9001 certified and working towards IATF 16949 certification in early 2022.
Performance tool coatings are used to limit tool wear and increase die performance.
Prototype capabilities are available, as needed.
