Cutting Dies

Cutting dies are the simplest forms. They consist of two parts, the die or die plate, and the punch, operated in a power press. The sheet of metal which is to be cut, called the " blank," is placed on the die plate and the punch falls on it and cuts out the desired shape. Pieced or seamed utensils are made from pieces so cut out. These dies are also called blanking dies.

Besides the simple blanking dies, there are dies which perform several operations at once and others which stamp out a number of pieces at one time.

Figure 2 shows the blanks of parts of several kitchen utensils formed by cutting dies.
