DTI's

Expertise

Founded in 2004, DTI was designed from the ground up to supply the North American and European markets with high value tooling built in China and Korea. Starting with simple progressives 15 years ago, DTI now builds even the most complex tools for our OEM and Tier One customers. Throughout the tool build DTI Engineers travel between Asia and Detroit to ensure design and build quality are the top priorities and that all tools are shipped from Asia ready for PPAP.

Progressive

Since building our first Prog tool in 2004, DTI has continued to design and build highly complex Progs for the North American market. Recent Prog tools have been over 200″ in length, more than 20 stations, and high strength material. DTI’s Eagle Press with a 216″ x 96″ bed size in our Livonia Headquarters is ideal for Prog tool tryouts.

Transfer

DTI delivered 21 Transfer tools on the new Ford Bronco. Each one arrived at the stamping facility in Sonora Mexico ready for PPAP where they were met by DTI’s team of dedicated Homeline Engineers. Buyoffs were completed in record time, directly leading to additional work on the Ford P703.

Tandem

DTI is able to provide the most value to our customers with our large Tandem dies. The high labor input required on Tandem dies leverages the DTI business model to provide significant savings to the tooling program. More important than the savings though is the fact that DTI has designed and built multiple Class A Hood and Roof Tandem tool sets for OEM flagship vehicles.

Blank

Blank dies are a new niche for DTI and one we’re excited to offer to our customers. We built our first blank die in 2017 and since then have built more than 30 blank dies for FCA and GM programs. Blank dies are best suited for high volume programs where the modest up front investment returns significant piece cost savings over the life of the program.

Trog

DTI designed and built Trog tools combine the material utilization of a progressive die with the forming capability of a transfer. Blanks are first formed with a progressive operation and then re-positioned before transitioning to a Transfer process to complete the final parts. DTI’s 13 TROG tools built for the F-150 program saved Ford an estimated $42 Million in material over the life of the vehicle.
