Products and Services

West Salem Tool & Die specializes in industrial tooling, dies and fixtures. High safety design features and short lead times makes us one of the industry’s leaders in innovative compact equipment for tube and exhaust industries.

We can manufacture many other kinds of machines as well.


An important part of our business from the beginning, we continue to make precision industrial tooling in house.


West Salem Tool and Die is able to provide custom designed welding fixtures, both stationary and rollover fixtures for robotic welding and for manual welding.  We design the fixture based on your 3D part model and weld drawing.


Progressive Dies

We design and manufacture progressive die sets up to 100″ long.

Every die is tested to make sure the parts that come out are in-tolerance.  Experience has taught us how to build die sets that last.



Our tube planishing machines smooth out weld beads for smooth ID and OD finish.  Mig, Tig, or Plasma Weld – any weld seam can be flattened.  Stainless tubes are no problem.

Slotting Machines

These machines are punch presses for tubes, with tooling for whatever shapes our customers require.  Our standard slotter machine does straight slots and torca slots.

See videos of slotting machines working on our youtube channel.

  • Quick Change ID-Tooling for Tube Sizer Machine
  • Tubes that have had sizing operations done. Sizing has limits – see the tube on the far right, which has a tear where the diameter couldn’t get larger.
  • Double Sizer Machine – OD on the left, ID on the right

Tube Sizers
