Press release date: January 8, 2014

Miamitown, OH — A-G Tool and Die, a diversified, total service company specializing in the design and development of a wide range of precision dies and tooling for a variety of industries, stays up to date on advancements in the industry through the acquisition of new machinery and the incorporation of state-of-the-art machining processes and design software.

One additional way that A-G is able to maintain its competitive edge is by taking advantage of technologies and services such as presquaring. Previously, A-G received its raw materials as simple bar stock. The company needed to hire several people and invest in specialized machinery in order to square its own blocks before customizing. Now, thanks to presquared blocks provided by its longtime supplier, Cincinnati-based Diehl Steel Company Inc., A-G is able to allow its tool and die makers to focus on their core skills: assembling and debugging dies.

Although there was some resistance to the idea at first, presquaring has been proven to reduce costs, save time, and increase employee productivity. In the long run, purchasing consistent, presquared blocks costs less than producing them in house. Diehl uses high-tech equipment to produce steel blocks with six finished sides, and it does all of the finishing, heat treating, grinding, and milling so A-G can immediately start machining tools upon receipt.

A-G is at the forefront of a movement toward tool and die shops sourcing out more and more of their first- and second-stage operations. And the company has made this dramatic improvement in efficiency without laying off a single employee. Through training and restructuring, A-G was able to keep its entire staff intact, an achievement that the shop is justifiably proud of.
