Dies

A die is a tool that is used to form and/or cut material into a particular shape. The term 'die' covers a broad spectrum of tools, but the function is generally limited to cutting, forming and finishing in accordance with the design specifications.

A die sometimes comprises multiple parts and can be very intricate. Therefore, the manufacture of a die usually involves multiple production processes including milling, turning, threading, drilling, laser cutting and welding. Owing to the complex nature of dies, die manufacture is usually a specialist process undertaken by dedicated toolmakers.

Dies are typically made using tool steel, due to its hardness and wear-resistance. However, some of the piece parts may be made from alternative materials such as carbide.

What is the best method for suppliers to contact you?

We will be putting suppliers in contact with you directly so they can quote your project. Some suppliers may have questions so they can quote you correctly. Additionally, most suppliers usually like to follow up to see how they got on and all we ask is that you provide them with feedback, whether they have won the project or not. With this in mind what is the best method to reach you on (you can choose both)?
