Stamping dies are the tools that shape and cut sheet metal parts. They are commonly developed using computer-aided design (CAD) software and analytical programs to create and prove-out highly accurate, unambiguous designs.
In the Sand Casting segment we enter Ford Motor Company's Beech Daly Technical Center to witness the automated, direct production of sand casting copes, drags and cores.
In the Investment Casting segment, Express Pattern and Barron Industries are highlighted to see how rapid prototyping accelerates investment casting prototypes, processes and production.
Workholding includes any device used to grip and present a workpiece to a cutting tool on a machine tool. To provide an understanding of workholding as a fundamental issue in the machining process, this Workholding program examines the principles of workholding, milling & machining center workholding, and lathe workholding. The Principles of Workholding segment covers datums, part location, the six degrees of freedom, the 3-2-1 locational method, and issues of reclamping or rechucking workpieces. The Milling & Machining Center Workholding segment looks at small-lot, medium-lot, and mass-production workholding options while detailing the use of clamps, vises, multi-vises, cubes, columns, tombstones, indexers, rotary tables, modular fixturing, pallets, pneumatic clamping, hydraulic clamping, vacuum workholding, and application-dedicated fixtures. The Lathe Workholding segment explores the use of 3-jaw chucks, 6-jaw chucks, 4-jaw chucks, 2-jaw chucks, indexing chucks, collets, collet chucks, between centers turning, drive dogs, face drivers, steady rests, and magnetic chucks and fixtures.
Quality tooling is a fundamental requirement for the manufacture of composite parts. This is due to the fact that every step in the composite part manufacturing process must be tightly controlled to ensure superior material properties and predictable performance in the final product. This Composite Tooling Design program explores the composite materials used for tooling, and tooling design.

The Roll Forming Machines segment explores outboard spindle support, single-duty machines, conventional machines, side-by-side machines, double head machines, rafted machines, drive mechanisms, and the use of lubricants.
