Clicker Dies made for today's cutting requirements.
With our Viking-Flex and Viking-Tex steel dies, discover how your company can lower its
tooling costs without sacrificing any of the quality and durability
you have come to expect.
Our edge-hardened, pre-sharpened knife steel, which we refer to it as Presharp, is
a high technology, lead-hardened steel that has revolutionized the die-making
process. One of Austrias
oldest and most respected steel mills developed a unique process whereby
the cutting edge of the steel is brought to optimum hardness, yet the body
of the steel remains malleable enough to be shaped to your specific pattern.
As an added benefit, this type of steel actually flexes when subjected to
the severe stress that would normally crack a more brittle forged die.
GlobalDie combines the best of the old school die methodology
and state-of-the-art materials to produce precision, high quality cutting
tools that help you meet the delivery demands of a lean production.
Some of our more popular bevels:
For most cutting applications, single edge steel remains the most widely used. The cutting edge of this steel is brought to optimum hardness by high frequency treatment. Also, the bevel is engineered to remain sharp, even after prolonged use.
Widely used in the shoe and glove trades, where identical left and right pieces are being cut.
This steel features a shear tooth that is best suited for cutting textiles. Significant advantages include: easier cutting of problem materials; reduced cutting pressure; reduced or eliminated fusing; and undercutting is held to a minimum.
High-grade bar stock is shaped to your pattern, a custom bevel is applied,
then the die is annealed to a uniform hardness. Forged dies are best suited
for the following: cutting problem materials that benefit from a long,
tapered bevel; or clearance dies which require material ejection through
the rear of the die. 1/8 and 1/4 wall thickness is available
in a variety of heights.
