Welcome to the Defense Tooling Locator
The defense tooling database program links the Defense Logistics
Agency (DLA) with the cast metals industry to build a reliable
system for procurement activities. Working with both ends of the
supply chain, the program has proven results in cost and lead-time
reduction for DLA. The result is a stronger manufacturing supply
base for weapons systems sustainment.
This database enables item managers and defense procurement
officers to identify and locate tooling for defense parts that
currently reside in prime contractor and sub-tier metalcasting
facilities, thus eliminating the cost of duplicating tooling and
reducing administrative and production lead-times for part
acquisition. The development and maintenance is managed by the
Non-Ferrous Founders' Society. Non-Ferrous Founders' Society (NFFS)
is a trade association that represents the aluminum and
copper-based foundries in the United States.
"The AMC program is sponsored by the Defense Supply
Center Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA and the Defense Logistics
Agency, Ft. Belvoir, VA."
