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

variety of materials. Flatbed die cutters can cut, crease,
trim or score materials including cardboard, plastics,
abrasives, aluminum, textiles, leather and film.
