Custom Fabricated Tool Case

custom fabricated tool case

Custom Fabricated Tool Case-The tool case highlighted here was designed to hold a proprietary right angle tool allowing the user to punch holes in light gauge sheet metal in confined spaces. In addition to the tool itself, the case holds 7 punching dies and several miscellaneous accessories. This complex case had to meet precise dimensional requirements and exhibit extreme durability in order to withstand the rigors of the construction industry. It is made with 20 gage cold rolled steel.

The material for this custom fabricated tool case was sheared to a sheet size that would minimize waste while maximizing sheet yield of component parts. Flat blanks of Individual components were punched out on one of our turret presses. The blanks are then formed on one of our brake presses using precision ground tooling. CNC back gages assure the dimensional accuracy of all forms.

The case and interior components were then spot welded together. Parts were then degreased and bathed in an iron phosphate solution in preparation for the application of a powder coated finish.

18 Hole Drill Tap Index

18 hole drill tap index

The 18 hole drill tap index highlighted here was designed to function as both a portable index that can fit in a toolbox/tool bag and also as a bench-top index that stands up presenting drill bits and taps in an organized manner that is easy to see and access. It was fabricated from 20 gauge cold rolled steel and finished with an attractive and durable burgundy powder coat.

Fabrication of the 18 hole drill tap index began with the shearing of the raw 20 gage CRS sheets stock to allow for best sheet yield when run in a computer numeric controlled (CNC) turret press. The blanks were then punched out with one of our CNC turret presses. The blanks take shape when formed with one of our CNC hydraulic brake presses. Quality control throughout these processes was maintained through dimensional inspection, and the use of template comparison.The formed components were resistance welded, with dimensional inspections verifying locational accuracy. The welded components were then thoroughly cleaned in preparation for powder coating.

Once the powder coating was cured and inspected the box components were screen-printed with our customer’s name and logo and then sent for final assembly which required pneumatic riveting. The finished box which measured 6.12” in length, 4.18” in width, and 1.28” in height, received a final inspection which included customer product fit (bits and taps placed in index) to test fit and function assuring quality before being shipped to the customer.

This project exemplifies our ability to custom design and manufacture specialty items that meet our customer’s needs in a cost-effective economical manner. This project was completed from design through sampling for approval to delivery on time to the customer.
