Keywords: Technical Service, Die Cutting, Steel Rule Dies

A Steel Rule die is made from pre-hardened and pre-sharpened die steel set into a die board to maintain the nesting orientation. It has a low to medium dimensional tolerance. The die height ranges from 23.8 to 50mm (.937 to 2.0 inches).

It is used for large parts or parts with large production runs and is typically used in an incremental cutting system. It can handle one or many layers of material depending on the material thickness and the height of the rule in the die.

Steel rule dies manufactured by ODI are making substantial contributions to the success of die cutting programs in automotive leather cutting, tri-laminate, leather goods, textile, plastic, rubber, and foam parts industries throughout the world.

We use only the finest materials in the fabrication of all of our tools. Customized die boards have been developed and produced exclusively for our cutting dies, and VIKING-TEX serrated edge steel - a revolutionary new concept in cutting dies - is also available.

Ontario Die International - Dievac® System

A vacuum pump then expels the air from the system which draws the hood down and compresses the material to approximately 2" in height. The entire system is then incrementally fed through a hydraulic cutting press specially fitted to suit the DIEVAC® process. When the vacuum is turned off, the lay recovers to its original height and the hood is automatically lifted clear.


Ontario Die International - Clicker Dies

This lightweight steel has become indispensable in the die cutting industry because it presents a great opportunity to maximize productivity at a reasonable cost. The die height ranges from 19mm- 60mm, which makes the pre-sharpened steel an excellent mate for the roller press. This steel became instrumental in the cutting of leather seats for the automotive industry. The shoe industry was the first to benefit from this revolutionary concept.
