Similar in quality and hardness to their ODC related product-forged dies, solid machined dies are even more tailored to suit the specific application for which they are manufactured. As an example, our line of solid machined paper cutting dies include both vacuum heat treated tool steels and carbide dies that are specifically designed and sharpened for the high volume cutting of glue back wet applied food and beverage labels. These dies are wire EDM'ed to demanding tolerances and utilize controlled clearance to provide the cleanest cut and neatest stack possible.
Solid machined dies are highly engineered and address the specific demands of a cutting requirement. Other applications that make extensive use of solid machined dies are the manufacturing of manicure sticks, small engine gaskets, intricate cut/crease leather components, etc., etc.. These applications demand accuracy, reliability and stability. Solid machined dies deliver in all of these criteria.
ODC craftsmanship and know how is well recognized in the industry. Supported by a commitment to R&D and utilizing extensive in plant tryout facilities ODC stands ready to test cut and recommend the appropriate solution to meet your cutting needs.
