Standard (Flat Dies) steel Rule dies attain the highest accuracies and can represent the most intricate of forms. The steel blades are held in place by high density plywood. To maintain tight tolerances all of the plywood is processed using laser cutting machinery. The blade thickness typically runs between .028 and .056 inches. Fold lines, scores, and perf cuts can all be made. It is also possible to partially cut through a material, such as for adhesive stickers. Scrap removal tools for automatic machinery (e.g., Bobst die cutters) are all laser cut for high production.
Typical Uses for Standard Dies:
