Pre-Squared Tool Steel Reduces Labor Costs

With the idea of cutting overhead costs always, Accu-Square™ tool steel from Diehl Steel reduces the need for further squaring of the blocks to save time in tool, die and mold making.

Accu-Square™ pre-squared tool steel from Diehl Steel Company (Cincinnati, OH) saves tool, die and mold maker’s time by reducing or eliminating the need for further squaring of the blocks. It comes pre-squared on all six sides to a tolerance range of the customer’s choosing.

Accu-Square is designed to help companies save time and cut costs. “While my peers didn’t believe it, the cost of having Diehl do the squaring for me was less than doing it in-house,” says Ken Seilkop, the chief executive officer of the parent company of A-G Tool and Die (Cleves, OH), Seilkop Industries (Cincinnati, OH), a long time user of Accu-Square.
