Flat Cutting Dies

Craftsman Cutting Dies brings decades of experience in building long lasting flat cutting dies for the corrugated industry. We also build custom flat dies for carpet/textile, plastic, foam and rubber cutting applications in the automotive industry. Our Lasercomb flat lasers are capable of burning an 84″ x 240″ seamless die board. This is particularly beneficial for producing large dies for the Automotive Industry. A laser burned die is far stronger and more accurate die than a hand jigged one. Additionally, the top grade of die board used for burning is stronger and holds rule tighter than conventional die wood. This solid foundation is one factor in the longevity of our dies. The precision of the laser is unmatched. We can, and do meet the closest of tolerances in the corrugated and automotive industry. After a solid design, the quality of the actual die begins here.
