Early design support is crucial. Skipping this step can lead to inferior products, which don’t conform to requirements resulting in die casting defects. This delays launches and increases both costs and recalls. Pace offers a diverse tooling procurement strategy, embedded engineering services, three integrated tool shops with simultaneous 5-axis machining and in-house flow simulation, thermal Analysis, 3-D laser scanning and FEA. These reduce cost overruns, improve speed to market and increase redundancy in tool production to minimize customer risk.
