Tool and Die Maker Jobs

Tool and Die Maker Jobs Overview


Tool and die makers are responsible for fashioning precision tools. The tools that they design will be used to form, shape or cut materials. Tool and die makers also produce dies, which are metal forms used for the shaping of metal while it is being forged. They make molds for the shaping of composite materials like ceramics or plastics. They typically work from specifications in the form of sketches, models, blueprints, and computer-aided design (CAD) or computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) files. Tool and die makers have thorough knowledge of both automatic and manual computer-numeric controlled machine tools known as CNC machine tools. These professionals are skilled in all aspects of creating machine parts to specifications including turning, milling, shaping, grinding and drilling as well as the testing and finishing of all surfaces. Math skills are a must as tool and die makers are required to be able to calculate dimensions and tolerances of tools created. Tool and die makers often work with auto and airplane manufacturers.

Tool and Die Maker Education Requirements


Becoming a tool and die maker requires approximately four years of technical training combined with on-the job experience. High-school graduates can enter a manufacturer-sponsored apprenticeship program. These programs typically combine 40 hours of paid, on-the-job training with classroom instruction through a local technical or community college. Vocational schools can also provide the training necessary.

Tool and Die Maker Job Market


The anticipated job growth for the field of tool and die making is currently good, if slightly less than the average. This will likely remain static between now and 2022.
