Steel Rule Cutting Dies:

When making or repairing steel rule dies, precision is key.  At McGehee Die, we pride ourselves on our ability to produce accurate dies at competitive prices.  We make high quality dies by hand and our quality control procedures verify the accuracy of each die.  We work with our customers every step of the way to see that the dies are properly made to maintain proper clearance.

The process of steel rule die cutting involves cutting a variety of materials including paper, plastic, foam, rubber, paperboard, corrugated fiberboard and cardboard.

The steel rule die process is an inexpensive method used for trimming parts.  Steel rule dies can be used to create creases, slits or perforations as well as cut out shapes.  Our dies are constructed of high-density plywood that is free of imperfections and voids, along with pre-hardened and pre-sharpened steel.

Our dies can be used on a variety of flatbed die cutters such as Bobst, Kluge, Thompson, Zed and clicker presses among others.  Flatbed diecutters offer high accuracy and are able to cut a wide variety of materials.  Flatbed die cutters can cut, crease, trim or score materials including cardboard, plastics, abrasives, aluminum, textiles, leather and film.

We also make dies that can be used on roller die cutters such as Visual, Ampak, Starview and others.  Roller die cutters can also handle a wide variety of materials including cardboard, foam, cork, rubber and are versatile enough to handle a full range of low to high production requirements. 

Each die is hand tooled to your specifications.  We are familiar with all types of flat bed die cutters,  roller die cutters, and blister sealers and have seventy years experience in making dies.

Knife Your Laser Burned Die Boards

Laser burned dies are stronger, allow for closer tolerances and more accuracy than hand jigged dies. Laser cutting is best used for harder parts such as steel, aluminum, wood, lexan or acrylic. Laser burned dies use a top grade of die board which is stronger and holds rule tighter allowing for longer lasting dies, and consistent, clean cuts.

Wooden Nesting Trays (Jigs)

Our wooden trays are jigs constructed out of high-grade and high density plywood free from voids and other imperfections. Each jig is hand tooled to your specifications.

The jigs are first laid out onto the plywood allowing for maximum yield according to your machine specifications.  They are then cut with a jigsaw to ensure that they are precisely positioned.  Die cut silicone gaskets in the shape of the pre-formed blister are added.  Retractable pins locate the blister card.

Before beginning we will need a minimum of 3 production cards and 3 production blisters with one card with the blister taped onto the card in the position that you wish for them to be sealed.

Blister packaging is a hard plastic cavity that is created to be similar to the product that is being packaged.  The plastic cavity contains the item and is sealed to paperboard or similar product.  Blister packaging protects items during sipping and display similar to skin packaging.  The packaging is created to be strong enough to hang on display but also easily opened..  Blister packaging is often used for pharmaceutical products, toys, hardware and electrical items.
