Our Mission // Our Goal // Directions

Today's machine and tool industry requires state-of-the-art design and manufacture techniques, an undying commitment to quality and an understanding of the customer and their needs.

Professional Machine & Tool, a family owned and operated business, is today's machine and tool industry. Since founding the company in 1987, Jim Johnson has successfully combined hands-on customer relations with the most sophisticated computer-aided design and manufacturing equipment available.

Employing CAD/CAM design, Professional Machine & Tool can produce complex, fully-detailed designs quickly and precisely. Since the CAD/CAM data is used throughout the manufacturing process, all tooling components are produced with perfect accuracy. Replacement components are also produced in far less time than with traditional design methods. Our staff is dedicated to cost-effective quality from start to finish.

What are the benefits to you? Professional Machine and Tool's services provide you with complex tooling in less time, saving your company money and down-time. It's what you've come to expect from your tooling vendor.

Quality-driven state-of-the-art design and manufacture from a family owned company...That's Professional Machine & Tool, today's machine and tool industry.

Our Goal:
When we are awarded a job from our customer our goal is to become a part of the solution and not a part of the problem.

Each die that we build begins with a design that maximizes the control of the strip insuring the best possible dimensional control of the part. All designs are created with correct geometry and are downloaded to our NT server for use by the CNC mills and Wire machines. All details of your die are interchangeable; with all dowel holes either wire burnt or jig ground. All die sets are jig bored on the CNC mills (top and bottom shoe) to insure replacement capabilities for all details.

Each die, as the design is completed, is routed by operation through the shop. This means that many people on all shifts will be producing the details for your die. As they are completed, the details flow to a coordinating diemaker who assembles your die and completes the runoff and necessary quality checks to insure a timely delivery.

The final phase of your die build includes a die check list that is filled out by the coordinating diemaker and an update of all drawings to insure that you receive the correct geometry.

At Professional Machine & Tool we've developed a check sheet
to guarantee quality production for all of our new dies.
