Shorter Lead Times

No matter the size or scope of your project, we deliver on time, every time. With multiple technologies housed under one roof, we’re able to offer exceptional lead times to complete your project quickly, so you can keep your business moving.

Rapid Prototyping

Advanced engineering and additive manufacturing enable us to accelerate prototyping and delivery turnaround times. We’re proud to provide direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) technology that produces intricate, high-precision geometries that would be difficult or impossible to produce conventionally.

“The service is very good. Metalcraft Solutions has good communication. They’re very open, responsive, high-quality, and on-time. They keep improving.” — General Manager

 

Order Size Flexibility

We welcome low-volume and high-volume orders to meet your needs. From prototype to production, we have the technologies and expertise needed to complete your project.

Our Tire Mold Manufacturing Capabilities

Acro Tool & Die is proud to provide multiple industry-leading production capabilities including:

3D Metal Printing

Our direct laser metal sintering (DMLS) technology enables us to create complex geometries, layer-by-layer. Without DMLS, many of these geometries are not possible. This process accelerates prototyping and production times and ensures a rapid delivery of your final product.

CNC Machining

Advanced 5-axis machining capabilities elevate traditional 3-axis processes, enabling us to quickly create your complex, custom design.

Stamping and Forming

In-house generated tooling provides speed, accuracy and consistency on low to high volume orders.

Laser Cutting

A range of sheet metal fabrication options are available with our in-house CO2 and fiber-optic lasers.

Laser Marking and Engraving

CNC and laser marking technologies can produce serialization, QR codes, bar codes, and graphics.

Swiss Turning

Our precision 4-axis lathes are ideal for manufacturing small, complex components.


Heat Treating and Tumbling

  • We harden, stress relieve, anneal, deburr, polish and more all in-house with our advanced finishing processes.
