Die Specs - Etching Dies


The drawing beneath illustrates some of the basic features of an etched magnesium die.
Not shown is the final trimmed size of the die plate.
We trim the die plate so that there is approximately 1/4” of metal from the edge of the plate
to the edge of the image on all 4 sides for stamping dies and 1/2” for embossing dies.

The depth of etch is approximate and can vary ± .010”,
although we strive to keep as close to .090” as possible.
The shoulder angle is approximate as well.
