Dies Engineered for Precision

Specimen die in boxEach die is EDM’d inside and out for uniform, controlled bevels to enhance sharpness and minimize cut-part distortion and certified to any ASTM, JIS, DIN or ISO standard.

  • Specimen die tolerance typically +/- 0.002″ unless noted otherwise
  • Forged die tolerances are +/- 0.020″
  • All dies are available in stainless steel at additional cost

Each Pioneer-Dietecs specimen die comes in its own deluxe wood storage case along with a certificate of compliance, maintenance log and archiving. When a die requires maintenance it can be returned to Pioneer-Dietecs for reconditioning, sharpening, re-certification and archiving of the maintenance log for an ISO paper trail.

Quality, Consistency, Performance

Pioneer’s Metrology Lab features a state-of-the-art CNC computerized measuring machine (CMM) for die inspection and certification to produce precision dies that perform consistently, again and again. Our CMM checks tolerances to 0.0001″, the tightest in the die-cutting industry. Certification is per ANSI/NCSL Z540-1, and meets ISO 17025;2005 specifications. Pioneer certifies dies’ dimensional tolerances to 0.002″ and maintains a perpetual archive of each die’s history.
