Apple Bites: Gasket Dies

August 14th, 2020

Q: Why gasket dies from Apple?

A: Apple is the largest manufacturer of gasket dies in North America, as such, we have decades of experience in crafting gasket dies. We utilize a vast database of materials to ensure that our dies are made to maximize both your output and to live up to the highest quality standard.

There is no need for you to labor over specifications. Let our 35 years of experience be your guide. Just a few of the added features we provide:

  • We can produce gasket dies with welded and/or brazed joints.
  • Rule heights from .937 to 4” with a wide variety of die bases.
  • When steel rule dies will not or cannot achieve your needs, we manufacture machined dies.
  • We have a state of the art inspection process to ensure that all dies meet or exceed our highest standards.
  • With almost all of our dies shipping the same day or next day, you will receive your dies on time, every time.

COVID-19 Update

August 14th, 2020

This is a difficult time for all of us as our world has changed, what seems like overnight.

We want to remind you Apple Die is here if you need us.

Apple is considered an essential business because we are making dies used to cut everything from masks and shields to hospital gowns and respirators, in addition to our normal business operations.

We want to take this time to give our first responders, nurses and doctors on the front line our deepest and sincerest gratitude. They are the real heroes.

Apple takes the health and safety of not only our team members but also our customers extremely seriously. We have increased cleaning and sanitation, and have implemented social distancing in the shop.

Contact us for any new project you have. We are still running full staff and 98.7% of all orders ship the same day or next.

We’ll get through this together!
