Steel rule dies are constructed using a pre-hard / pre-sharp steel rule die blade. Blades can range from 2pt (0.028″, 0.71mm) to 8pt (0.112″, 2.84mm) thick and have heights from 0.75″ (19mm) to 3.00″ (76.2mm). The cutting edge can vary from serrated (many options) to center bevel to side bevel.

Ejection materials, locators, weld, braze, and mounting holes can all be added, as required in most cases.

Technical Details

Investment: Low

Size Options: Almost But Endless

Die Life: Low to medium (10,000 to 100,000 impressions). Depending on logisitics and die size, many times it makes sense to have the die re-ruled once dull. Once a steel rule die is dull, it cannot be re-sharpened due to the case hardening of the steel rule.

Tolerance: From 0.010″(.25mm) to 0.060″(1.52mm), depending on cutting rule selection and, more importantly, the shape of the part that is being produced.
