NP type

Cut thick material! Straight & sharp cut! Low cutting pressure!
New Pinnacle Die cuts thick material with low die/cutting pressure.
Processing restrictions are alleviated and dies with still more complicated shapes can be fabricated.

This die enables to punch delicate and complicated shapes

Edge height 3.0mm enables sharp and powerful punching

By improving its cutting edge, it realizes smooth cutting even in narrow space.
