Description

This paper presents an illustrated outline of the sequence used in the Rapid Die process. This tool and diemaking method is used to produce, blank and pierce dies at cost reductions between 40 and 60 percent and with the accuracy and die life of conventional dies. The paper also describes several parts made with Rapid Die tooling and presents two comparison studies. (Formerly SP63-180)
