CCSi designs and manufactures high quality specimen cutting dies completely inhouse at our facility in Akron, OH. Our complete vertical integration allows CCSi to provide exceptional quality dies at competitive prices.
Our process starts with high, quality American made tool steel. We then grind, machine, harden, wire EDM, sharpen, and dimensionally certify the dies. The wire EDM manufacturing process creates perfectly vertical interior walls. This allows the die to be sharpened repeatedly without altering the dimensional characteristics of the sample and provides excellent long term value.
All CCSi dies come with the serial and model number laser engraved for easy identification. Also included is a rugged, foam lined carrying case for protection while the die is not in use.
Our standard dies have no adapters and are intended for use in a “clicker” style press.
CCSi ASTM D624-A dies are built to the standard (inch) specification. If a metric (mm) is required it must be requested.
Tear Die A is a specimen, in a crescent shape, which is nicked by a razor. The force acts along the major axis, perpendicular to the nick and measures tear propagation.
This model includes an integral nicker. For D624-A without integral specimen nicker click here.
