Standard Die customizes all types of dies and tooling solutions, delivering parts that are tailored to your manufacturing and metal stamping needs. Along with your custom stamping project we repair and maintenance our dies in-house.


Our full-service tool and die solutions allow us to make and use dies that meet your exact specifications. We’ll create or source a die that can handle all your industry’s demands and run the production in our facility for the life of the project. When we source dies, we work with suppliers in the U.S.A


At Standard Die, our engineering capabilities maintain the highest levels of efficiency. Thanks to the precision and attention to detail we put into our processes, we achieve tight tolerances with every part we assemble. If you need a precision metal stamping partner who can work within narrow tolerances without sacrificing quality or accuracy, we offer the reliable services you need.

The tooling used in production has a significant impact on how well the finished part adheres to the given specifications, as do a number of other common factors:

  • Die design
  • Production material properties
  • Product dimensions
  • The work environment
  • Operational control

It can be challenging to consistently create parts within tight tolerances, especially when it comes to thick pieces that require heavy-duty stamping capabilities to deliver high levels of precision. That said, Standard Die professionals have the skills and expertise to maintain control throughout the entire tooling process. We have our operations down to a science, so you can rely on us for the tightest tolerances regardless of the part or tool type you’re looking for.

Benefits of Precision Tooling in House

Some of the reasons to work with a precision stamping company that performs in-house tooling and repairs include:

  • Time savings: In-house tooling and die maintenance typically save a considerable amount of time. You don’t have to send your dies very far when they need repair or general maintenance. You also enjoy a shorter lead time and faster to-market speed when you partner with a company that handles everything in-house.
  • Improved communication: Standard Die International has a design and engineering team that listens to your requests and stays in touch with you. With our in-house die shop, you aren’t playing a game of telephone. You communicate your needs and specifications directly to our team, and we take it from there.
  • Customization options: Our in-house design team can completely customize your dies based on your exact specifications and project needs. You have more flexibility and freedom when you work with an in-house team.
  • U.S. sourcing and production: With in-house precision tooling, your dies are made right here in the U.S. If we need to source materials, we do our best to source from U.S.-based companies, too.
  • Tight tolerances: If you need to maintain quality while working with tight tolerances, you’re better off choosing a company that performs precision tooling in-house rather than outsourcing.  Standard Die has the expertise and skills needed to produce parts with tight tolerances.
  • Quality assurance: For as long we are stamping your product, Standard Die can maintain the service of the tooling features. That gives you a level of quality assurance you won’t find elsewhere.

About Standard Die

A History of Service and Excellence


When Al Menzies Sr. established Standard Die over 50 years ago, his plan was simple: stand out from the competition. As the first metal stamper to the industrial diamond industry, he was unwilling to compromise his values. He made sure integrity, customer service and quality were integrated into every aspect of the business and, as a result, designed and manufactured some of the world’s finest products for the industrial diamond industry.

Our Mission:
” To make the purchasing of metal stampings painless.”

By pursuing this mission for more than four decades, we have grown from a start up tool and die operation to a world-class metal stamping company. With more than a billion parts delivered, we have provided precision drawing and stamping services to customers spanning the industrial diamond, automotive, aircraft, electrical and medical industries across the globe.
