Die Sinking  

Lakeview maintains die-sinking facilities to produce and repair dies. This ensures complete control and critical documentation of tooling performance during production runs.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              


There is no charge to estimate production costs. Our experienced staff ensures the accuracy and accountability of our costs.


Our Engineering Department is equipped with a state-of-the-art CAD/CAM system to assist customers in product design, as well as design of die and all tooling equipment.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

   Software includes:

  • Solid Edge-2D
  • Smartcam

Files can be accepted in Drawing Auto CAD, DXF, IGES or STP format.  

Engineering Assistance

Lakeview's engineering assistance is available to all of our customers to help guard against excess cost due to over-design or product failure from under-design.  

Some of the more important considerations include:

  • - configuration
  • - corrosion resistance 
  • - weight to strength ratio
  • - degree of tolerance
  • - metal selection for best product performance and appearance
  • - degree of fatigue
  • - most economical methods of forming complex shapes
  • - yield and rupture strengths needed
  • - required ductility and weldability
  • - planning for secondary machining operations

Close Tolerances    

Lakeview Forge can hold close tolerances at reduced cost premiums. Consistent adherence to required dimensions results in reduced machining costs due to projected repeatability. This valuable capability often results in Lakeview's selection as the exclusive supplier.
