Progressive Components is a leading supplier for the Die Cast Industry. With today’s designers and manufacturers increasingly looking for off-the-shelf, quality products for their tools, we are proud to announce the expansion our line of Die Cast Components, which have been engineered specifically, for the harsh conditions of the casting world.

Our new Ejector Pins, Locks, Leader Pins and Bushings are now Black Nitride for wear resistance, and we added more stainless steel cooling items that provide higher strength for improved safety and less deformation than brass.

This collection of advantages delivers convenience, unmatched tooling performance, and longevity for your tools.

Progressive is the only American owned, independently operated full-line supplier of components and software for the die cast and molding industry.

We have three stocking locations in the US and six globally. Unlike our competitors, we do not have our products made in China, which ensures the highest quality steels and heat treatments possible.

While we’ve sold to die cast companies for nearly thirty years, we’ve recently formed a top-notch team to lead the focus on further advancing this area.

Contact anyone on our team, and you’ll find that we’ll work to assist you in reducing downtime and increasing the profitability of your company.
