As a leader in design engineering services for tooling for over 30 years, at American Industrial Company, we utilize modern software and cutting edge testing tools to quickly and accurately provide complex prototypes, design assistance, reverse engineering and the re-design of new or existing products.

Our many years of experience and investment in state-of-the-art equipment have made us a one-stop shop for product design. Our design engineering services cover all the major areas of pre-production activities: from in-house die design, product and prototype development to material selection. We offer a full array of testing procedures that meet and exceed a wide range of prominent and not-so-prominent industry standards and specifications. Our team of design engineers is composed of AutoCAD and EdgeCAM experts, and is also highly proficient in a number of other equally advanced software tools. Our expertise allows us to determine the optimal tooling approach that is perfectly matched to material selection, run size, and the specific needs of the product application. This comprehensive approach ensures that a product design will meet all specification criteria and cost constraints. Another way in which we simplify the accessibility to our services is by being able to accept all major file formats, such as DWG, DXF, and IGES, to review and suggest modifications or use as a basis for new designs.

Our facilities also excel at providing a wide range of industry-accepted testing procedures–from the determination of a material’s Rockwell hardness to full destructive capabilities, as well as non-destructive testing. These capabilities will ensure that all products are in conformance with all applicable specifications and provide a measurable reliability determination of a product.

We offer our services to a wide range of industries, including automotive, construction, marine, medical, and the power tool industry. We operate a state-of-the-art 25,000 square foot facility, for which we proudly hold ISO 9001:2008 certification. Our commitment to quality and efficiency inspires the confidence of our clients, and allows us to provide the highest quality and lowest costs possible.

As a conscientious manufacturer, we also take pride in our community and support many local industry professional associations, and are members of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association (IMA), the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) and the Tooling & Manufacturing Association (TMA).

Our complete in-house design services at American Industrial Company are based on a modern approach to design engineering, along with extensive experience; this has proven to be an unbeatable combination that has allowed us to foster a culture of excellence with our organization.
