Global Tool & Automation Corp is widely known as an aluminum foil container die manufacturer.
Not only are its capabilities such that it produces individual class “A” dies to fabricate foil containers,
but also entire turnkey systems for the manufacture of foil container programs.
Global can not only design dies but it also develops and builds them, as well as the peripheral
equipment that is necessary for high-speed aluminum container production. Components such as stackers, uncoilers,
air consoles, and any other equipment associated with the manufacture of foil containers are within the base
of knowledge contained at Global Tool.
All dies are made of top grade tool steel, with hardened punches, hardened formers, hardened
draw rings, built-in pistons, and built-in cushions or commercial cushions for air operation. The shear rings
or lower cutting edge are also made of a prehard steel or material drawn to a lower rockwell so the shear
ring can be peened to maintain a good cutting edge. Global Tool can also make blank layouts to provide approximate
material widths for a container, also calculate scrap percentage, and approximate running speeds. The company
can also recommend material gage and hardness.
Global Tool & Automation Corp is a full service company that can provide all
information required to create dies and to run containers.
