Tooling refers to the various tools and equipment used in manufacturing processes to shape, form, and assemble raw materials into finished products. These tools can be hand-held or machine-operated, and are used to perform a variety of tasks such as cutting, forming, and fastening. The type of tooling used in a manufacturing process will depend on the materials being worked with, the production volume, and the specific requirements of the finished product. Some common types of tooling include cutting tools, forming tools, and assembly tools as well as fixtures and jigs, which hold workpieces in place during manufacturing. Effective tooling is essential for ensuring consistent and efficient production, as well as high-quality finished products.
Precision tooling is where we got our start. Over the past 30+ years, we’ve built a strong reputation for precision, quality, and performance in manufacturing tooling of all types–from jigs and fixtures to work platforms and large weldments.
With vast experience in some of the world’s most demanding industries, including aerospace, automotive, defense, energy, space, and more, we are equipped to and experienced in confidently and consistently achieving tolerances as tight as ±0.0001 inch. That precision comes through experience–experience gained through thousands of projects, with hundreds of diverse customers, for a wide variety of industries and applications.
That precision also comes from our people and equipment. At Baker Industries, we achieve industry-leading precision through investing in state-of-the-art equipment, vibration control, environmental control, and experienced engineers, tool makers, fabricators, and machinists, all of which represent our unparalleled commitment to excellence.
