World Class Tool and Die Builders

Gibbs' Audubon Tool division is one of the largest captive die casting tool builders in the United States. Along with our well equipped and experienced engineering department, Audubon Tool designs Gibbs tooling and assists customers with casting design issues. Excellent control of design and tool building allows Gibbs to get tooling from inception to production faster than anyone else in the industry.

State-of-the-Art Technology
Our tooling divisions employ state-of-the-art technology to design, build and verify all tooling projects. From our Unigraphics CAD systems to fused deposition modeling prototyping equipment to CNC electrical discharge machines to automated coordinate measuring machines to our highly skilled tooling engineers we employ the best people and products available to ensure your tooling will be world class.

  • We use advanced software in designing and building dies and to generate cavity and automated part inspection programs
  • We use fused deposition modeling (FDM) prototyping equipment.
  • CNC electrical discharge machines rapidly burn cavities to near-finished condition with oscillating feed producing tooling to the most exacting tolerances
  • Automated coordinate measuring machines inspect every carbon electrode, die cavity and sample casting to insure dimensions within .001" (.025mm).
  • Parts prototyped in the same tooling intended for production.
  • An objective automated report accompanying every cavity at tool submission as proof of compliance.
