Custom Machines & Systems Integration
West Salem Tool & Die (WSTD) now offers custom machinery design and systems integration services. Our turnkey solutions bring together fluid, electrical, and control systems to meet the unique needs of our customers. Most of our machines end up in American production lines in the automotive, energy, and heavy equipment industries.
The clear advantage of getting a custom-designed machine from WSTD is the ability to specify each technical aspect of the machine so that it fits the application perfectly. For example:
- Increase Production: Our CNC drilling machines with multiple spindles can speed up cycle times and ease choke points production.
- Improve Efficiency: Our programmable hydraulic presses can be run as fast or press as hard as needed.
- Safety features can be customized for whatever suits the factories’ needs best.

In addition to custom equipment, WSTD has a lineup of standardized machines for a variety of tube operations. These include end sizing, slotting, work-holding and welding.

In 1974 West Salem Tool & Die started as a small shop specializing in industrial tooling, dies, and fixtures. Wisconsin tool and die companies had ups and downs as the automotive industry in Detroit went through its boom and bust. Of those companies, many don’t exist now. However, we survived and grew, and don’t plan on going anywhere. So you can rely on us to be around for the next job. The company has grown to employ many expert tool and die makers and machinists with decades of experience. Located near La Crosse, WI, the company conveniently occupies several buildings right off I-90.
