die


die
the term die is most commonly used in tooling, i.e. press tools "punch and die" but there are many other types of die, e.g., thread cutting dies, forming dies, forging dies, die-casting dies, etc. The term when applied to steel often refers to drawing dies through which hot rolled wire and bar are drawn to produce the finish and dimensional accuracy that is required for bright steel.
