Chin Li Mould Development Ltd.
Chin Li Mould Development Ltd was founded in Taiwan in 1977, the first company in the world to develop and produce solid steel rule dies. Initially these were made with the hands of our still master and Director Ma Guo Zhi from a solid block of steel. Today these dies as well as one of our other products, the rotary die, are produced by a chemical etching process and are then finished with CNC machining. With more than 35 years’ experience we are proud to be the world’s biggest producer of solid steel rule dies. Our quality and new product development are surpassed by none. Our unique skills enable us to offer our customers a wider variety of blade angles and the ability to make the blades higher, sharper and more durable than any of our competitors.

Solid steel rule die for cutting machine

Chin Li Mould Development Ltd. expects that these Solid steel rule die products, along with its market-leading small-signal transistors and diodes, will have a major impact in the Solid steel rule die market. If you are interested in Solid steel rule die, please feel free to contact us.

Our chemically etched steel rule die has effectively replaced the wood based steel rule die in many fields, such as the electronic and pharmaceutical industries due to its ability to cut with higher dimensional accuracy.

These dies are made from a solid piece of steel, generally with a thickness between 0.5mm and 6mm. The die will undergo a process where elaborate designs are etched in the steel and are then finished by CNC machining.

The solid steel rule die has no shape restrictions when it comes to the blade. Both blade height and blade to blade distance can be precisely controlled within requested tolerances. We are able to offer a blade height of up to 5mm, something no other company in the world can do.

Advantages of our Solid Steel Rule Die:

  • Easy to install, easy to use
  • No welds
  • High precision accuracy
  • Die-cutting, punching, perforating, blanking and creasing can all be combined in one single tool
  • A wide range of blade angles
  • One die can have blades with different heights and angels
  • Our unique skills makes us able to produce dies with extremely smooth blades in order to prevent residue from the cutting process to stick to the blades
  • Blanking holes can be made to get rid of scrap material at the same time as punching.
  • Excellent Nanotechnology diamond surface treatment:
    - Anti-Sticking
    - Excellent rub and scratch resistance
