Cutting Dies

Standard Scientific supplies specimen cutting dies for many different applications including plastic, paper, rubber, and fabric. All dies are hand forged with high carbon steel and are hardened for long-lasting durability. The dies are designed and manufactured so that the cutting area of the restricted area will not change when resharpened. Dies can be supplied as a flat back (clicker style) or with a mallet handle (for use with a rubber mallet). They are also available as expulsion dies (for use with an expulsion press) or they can be supplied to fit other manufacturer’s presses upon request. A large selection of dies to meet ASTM, ISO, TAPPI and other international and industry specifications are available. Custom size and shape dies are also quoted upon request.

Dies are usually shipped within 2-3 days of order.

Manual Cutting Presses with Expulsion Feature

CS-DG Manual Expulsion Presses are designed to prepare precise specimens for testing of paper, rubber, plastics, textiles, and other materials. The expulsion feature allows for easy removal of the specimen. Specimens are ejected at the end of each cycle and deposited on the cutting surface. The expulsion feature also prevents the material from distorting during the cutting operation and prevents damage to the specimen during removal. The dies are securely attached to the top platen of the press by a positive locking mechanism. Two models are available.

Features:

  • Precision ground components to ensure completely parallel surfaces
  • Depth penetration stop and tension adjusting nut for operator safety
  • Large selection of cutting dies available

  • Capacity 1.5 ton
  • Cutting base surface 203 x 178 mm (8 x 7 inches). Platen is 175 x 102 mm (7 x 4 inches)
  • Clearance between the bottom of cutting die and cutting surface is 25 mm (1 inch)

Model CS-DG2.5

  • Capacity 2.5 ton
  • Cutting base surface 305 x 357 mm (12 x 14 inches). Upper platen is 203 x 203 mm (8 x 8 inches)
