The above photos depict two dies for the same job. The left die was rubbered conventionally. It required 1330 individual pieces of rubber and untold hours of an experienced diemaker’s time.
The die on the right used MRP Custom Cut Rubber: Only 491 pieces of convenient adhesive-backed rubber with detailed mapping provided… so detailed that someone without previous experience was able to rubber the die quickly and accurately.
The die on the left ran at only 4,000 hits per hour while the MRP die ran reliably at an astounding 6,500 hits per hour. That’s a 62.5% increase in press speed for this job… which also means an equal increase in profit as well. What’s more, the MRP die was so balanced from an ejection standpoint that it ran at this speed without nicking the cutting rule.
