Custom Metal Forming with DFMA Reviews

Place an order for an assembly with us and we’ll collaborate with your design team to perform design for manufacturing and assembly (DFMA) reviews to streamline your assembly to reduce cost, improve quality, minimize inventory and time to replenish stock.  Working collaboratively on the design will allow us to produce your parts at the lowest cost while achieving high quality during the development of the product.

Metal Fabrication & Product Development

TMS wants to help you get your product to market with minimal cost and time.  If you need to hand off your project to a firm that can take your assembly, break out the components, finish the design, engineer the tooling, set the production process and manage the order, then you need to call TMS.  We will gladly take the finished assembly requirements and deliver something that will fit right into your application working with you in a collaborative manner rather than a simple shop making a part. With excellent customer service based in Toledo, Ohio, we know the value of treating a client like a partner rather than just another customer.

Spin and draw tooling are machined from the type of steel that will give the most useful life and economical cost, depending on your requirements of quantity, type of material formed and tolerances required. Our engineering department utilizes 3D parametric solid modeling CAD software for designing and MasterCAM to aid in the efficient precision tool design and fabrication processes.   Our in house developed standard library of CNC tooling enables us to swiftly go from the tool design stage to the CNC fabrication build stage with minimum effort and time while maintaining precision. Most tools are designed and machined in our plant for speed, control, and economy.
