Steel Rule Dies

Terrene, Inc. makes custom steel rule dies with laser cut precision. All our die boards are computer designed and laser cut to your specifications. Birch plywood and clear polycarbonate (Lexan) are available for use as die board. Providing speed and repeatability, our CNC rule bending machine is a tool our experienced personnel use to assemble your steel rule die quickly and accurately. Your steel rule die is assembled with cutting rule, perforated rule, scoring rule, punches and other hardware as is necessary to your design.

We can provide our customers with such special features as:

  • Rubber ejection strips to push material out of the die board cavities
  • Steel rule dies can be configured to accept blister packaging and other pre-thermoformed materials
  • Polycarbonate (Lexan) offers see through registration for higher part to material yield and greatly improved cycle times
  • Supply us with a flat pattern part, and we can reverse engineer the steel rule die required to die cut that part

Utilized to produce parts quickly and efficiently, steel rule dies cut a wide array of soft material, from foams and rubber to thin plastics and fabrics. Commercial industries that use our steel rule dies include medical, electronics, aerospace, textiles, automotive, sporting goods, printing, packaging and many more. Gaskets, seals, filters, pads, and shields are just a few of the applications for steel rule die use.

Steel rule die making has been a part of Terrene, Inc. since the company was founded in 2001. In that time, we have only improved in our ability to deliver steel rule dies of the highest quality in a timely manner throughout the Greater Seattle area and the nation.
