Importance of proper Die Storage:  What happens when tools and dies are stored ineffectively?

 

Machining can be negatively affected by material that is even slightly damaged.  Bumped and scratched, a chip here, a nick there, and suddenly your machining just isn’t what it used to be. The quality has slipped, maybe more products are being returned, there’s an increase in customer complaints. Additionally, moving very heavy pieces is hard on a worker’s body – often leading to back and spine troubles from twisting, stretching and bending under extreme loads. Putting tool & die rack near its usage point and adding an overhead hoist or manipulator makes handling tooling not only more ergonomic, but physically safer, helping to prevent injuries from accidental drops or crushing.  Improve safety, ergonomics, organization, and efficiency with a die storage rack.  Your workers and material are too valuable to place at risk.

When organizing your dies and die cutting equipment, you’ll be faced with the challenge of finding the right organizational system that works for you and implementing that system into your facility. Let Warner Specialty Products design an effective solution to reduce risk and improve productivity.  Site visits are available.

Depending on the size and weight of your tooling and die pieces, you can select different rack styles for better, more efficient handling of tool & die. From smaller, lighter pieces, to extra heavy duty needs, we have you covered.  A few examples of options we have provided to satisfied customers:

 

  • Glide outs:  Use when floor space is too restricted to access racking with forklift, workers are leaning too far into existing shelving to hand pick heavy items, machine down time is excessive between die/tool changes, Tools/dies are too valuable to handle with a forklift, stock parts are not visible due to deep shelving/racking, rack or shelf space is not being fully utilized, vertical storage space is wasted due to forklift, aisle way for a forklift takes up valuable storage/manufacturing floor space. https://warnerspecialty.com/product/glide-outs/
