TCDC operates three IATF 16949:2016 certified US facilities in the Midwest. All locations are within 200 miles of the corporate headquarters of Minneapolis, Minnesota. We continually reinvest in our equipment, which includes Buhler and Colosio cold-chamber die casting machines, Reis trim presses, Rauch magnesium furnaces, and ABB robots. Our capabilities will impress you with their efficiency and consistent processes that turn out high quality magnesium and aluminum parts. As with all TCDC locations, tight tolerance machining is an integral part of our operations.
Our Minneapolis location is home to aluminum die casting and secondary operations include machining, finishing and assembly. Some of the specialties in the 74,000 sq. ft. Minneapolis plant include multiple cavity dies (up 18 cavities), close tolerance machining, and experience with a wide range of finishing options.
In 1989, TCDC expanded to Watertown, South Dakota. Located approximately 200 miles from the Twin Cities, operating 65,000 sq. feet of space, the Watertown facility is dedicated to running fully automated aluminum die cast cells. Automated machining lines with robots and in-cell pressure testing are a few of the many items that separate our Watertown plant from other die casters.
In 2000, we opened up our newest plant in Monticello, Minnesota to serve the growing need for magnesium die castings. This state-of-the art plant is 45,000 sq. ft. and is equipped with the most technologically advanced equipment in the world, is located just 40 miles from TCDC corporate headquarters. The Monticello location has made a name for itself in cosmetic parts with class “A” finishes and thin wall die castings.
