The next useful step will be to go through the following checklist. Going over this checklist with the customer will help the die caster lock down most of the needed information they need regarding the production of inherited tooling parts. Everything related to the inherited tooling must be available for the die caster to review and examine, including the existing China Die Casting die, the trim die, and the secondary machining fixtures.

The die caster needs to know if the dies and fixtures are able to produce to the part print or required specifications and how much work it will take before starting production. This review will include any adaptation of caster’s equipment that production of the inherited dies may require. Once the die caster has all of this information, they can begin to generate final production estimates.
