Tom Maxwell founded Die Quip in 1974 as an equipment builder to make finishing dies faster and easier for an in-house die shop. Mr. Maxwell worked in a die shop for 20 years and saw the need for equipment that produced dies faster and more accurately, which is why he started the company. His two sons Tom and Scott Maxwell are currently running the business since his retirement.
All of our equipment is designed using sound machine designs, time tested work holding methods and built on a rigid platform to consistently make heavy cuts. We are not a die shop that designed equipment for internal use for production of new dies. This makes our philosophy in building tungsten carbide draw die working equipment different than our competition. We have the widest diameter working range of any company in the industry and have products for the wire, bar and tube drawing industries.
