Tempest Tool & Machine, Inc. entered into business in 1979 as a provider of very basic toolmaking services to various automotive-based companies in southern Indiana.  Since then, our business and capabilites have grown greatly alongside available technologies.  Let us help you with your gaging and special tooling needs!

We design and build everything from small hand-apply functional gages to automated data collecting systems.

Using your 3D solid CAD part models, we can design and build custom fixturing and staging tools to fit your machining needs.

Not all toolmaking needs are gages or fixtures.  We have 40+ years of experience designing and building custom tools for in-plant or in-the-field use.

Using our Stratasys Objet 30 Pro 3D printer, plastic prototypes can be provided using your 3D solid CAD models in short order, sometimes within 24 hours.

As of 2013, we are a Fanuc Robotics OEM and integrator. We can provide robotic automation to fit your needs.

It's a 3D world.  Tempest Tool & Machine has utilized 3D CAD since 1991, moving on to solid modeling in 2000.

We are partnered with GageSoft, LLC to use GageMate Pro data collection software.  Let us provide a turn-key data collecting gage for you.

We have experience providing programmable logic systems to aid in our gaging and fixturing automation.
