About DieTherm


Die Therm Engineering was established in 2007 by J. Scott Kirkman to provide process solutions to the thermally-related challenges that the die casting industry faces.  Mr. Kirkman has over twenty-five years of experience in the die casting industry.  He graduated from General Motors Institute (now Kettering University) in 1990 and earned his Masters in Engineering from the University of Wisconsin—Madison in 1994. 


Mr. Kirkman worked at various die casters over the subsequent years, increasing his expertise in the die casting process.  In 1999, Mr. Kirkman established a consulting practice in which he drew on his experience to provide die casting companies with process improvement solutions.  This experience highlighted the lack of attention paid to the array of thermal issues in the die casting process.  Mr. Kirkman enlisted the assistance of Edmund Herman, an expert in the die casting industry with fifty years of experience, with whose help Mr. Kirkman became an expert in the thermal aspects of the die casting process. 


The culmination of this endeavor was the creation of Die Therm Engineering at which Mr. Kirkman assembled a team to produce and implement the Die Therm System and provide related support and consulting services.  Die Therm Engineering strives to be the leader in thermal solutions for the die casting industry.
