Flexible Dies

Apple manufactures magnetic flexible dies for a vast array of applications in heights to 2 mm with various treatments. CNC sharpened for extremely tight tolerance, rotary or flat applications, cut through, kiss cutting, creasing and micro-perforation, variable heights on one die. Several options on cutting angles 30 – 110 degrees and cutting heights .32-1.5mm, all tailored to your material specification. Dies are made with hardened steel, are corrosion resistant, and coating and laser hardening are available. Flexible dies are ideal for short and long runs, easy to store, and lightweight for economical shipping.

Some of the advantages of flexible dies in comparison to our steel rule dies include:

  • No joints or gaps in the die
  • Less expensive compared to Rotary dies with extremely tight tolerances
  • Able to be used on both flat and rotary cutting presses
  • +/-.0002” as a flatness tolerance making flexible dies perfect for kiss cutting, usually with no make ready time
  • More economical to ship
  • Easy to store
  • Same or next day turnaround
