Our focus is to provide the global automotive tooling industry with engineered tooling solutions that produce large, complex parts made of Advanced High Strength Steels and Aluminum to run in presses up to 3200 Tonnes. Our highly skilled and experienced team applies the latest in technology, systems and services that have made Bowman Precision Tooling a leader in the global tooling industry. 


Increase Tryout Capacity
We have recently acquired a SIMPAC DE4P-1500 Tryout press. This Mechanical press produces 1500 metric tonnes and has a bolster size of 2.5m X 6m, utilizing a full tonnage Micro-Inching. Bowman Precision Tooling is one of very few tooling sources to have a resource like this dedicated 100% to tool proving. Having this tryout capacity has allowed us to produce tooling for presses up to 3200 metric tonnes.

New! 6M 5 Axis CNC Machine

Cutting Machine
We are happy to announce the Bowman Precision Tooling has purchased a DMG Mori – DMU 340 Gantry, 5 Axis machining center with travels of 6m X 2.8m X 1.5m. This will be an important new resource to our company and it will have a significant impact on our capabilities and capacities. This machine is due to arrive in February, 2019. More on this to come…

Process Simulation


Our Process Developers have extensive experience in Advanced High Strength Steels and Aluminum. They apply this knowledge using advanced FEA engineering software such as Autoform to develop robust processes that ensure that your tooling has the best possible performance and repeatability.

Cad Solid Model


Our experienced Die Designers use the latest in solid model CAD including Siemens NX and Die Transfer Simulation to ensure the best possible quality and maintainability. 

Die Simulation


We use sophisticated engineering kinematic software to perform virtual tryouts of every die. This ensures the function ability of every component, identifies potential interference issues and verifies strokes per minute that the tooling will perform as expected by our customers.
