Better Tooling, Better Profit

Before a part is put into production, a plan for how to make the part cost effectively and efficiently must be put into place. At this step of the supply chain, tooling providers have a significant impact on a program’s quality, cost and flexibility for growth. One such company is AFS Corporate Member Anderson Global (www.andersonglobal.com), which designs, engineers and manufactures tooling for a wide variety of casting processes and metals for automotive, aerospace, military and other markets requiring precision production tooling. Casting Source talked with Anderson Global’s Jeff Cordes, president and CEO, and Chris Hubert, executive vice president-engineering and global business development, about how tooling technology has changed and tooling’s role in the manufacturing supply chain.
