    Engineering and Design Services
    Hoffmann Die Casting has a full service Engineering Department and is ready to assist in the part design. With the engineering support from HDC, often the design can be more robust and produced at a lower cost.
     
    HDC can and will do the prototyping of parts for the customer. Prototypes can be produced from a range of methods, from machining a part from the solid to producing an actual die casting cast from a prototype/soft tool.
     
    HDC will design all tools produced for the casting process. All tools are produced by local Tool & Die sources but the project is managed by HDC. All local sources used have the latest equipment, techniques and computer capabilities.
     
    HDC utilizes SolidWorks and AutoCad in-house for Computer Aided Design, but with the added capabilities of the tool sources we are able to accept almost any CAD Data format.
