Sheltech makes very affordable custom dies for cutting out parts that you design.

Sheltech is not a machine shop, and not a tool and die shop in the traditional sense. We specialize in making a specific type of inexpensive cutting die, and provide a part punching service to go along with the dies.

Basic blanking dies for cutting flat, outline shapes

Very inexpensive dies for shapes up to approx. 5"x6 and 1/2". Price ranges from $20 to $300.

Same type of die for extra large shapes up to 10" across
Higher price range, but still lots less costly than conventional tooling.

These blanking dies can be made to cut sheet metal as thick as needed, but die size factors limit the practical ceiling to around 10ga., or about 2mm. They will also work on papers such as cardstock and watercolor paper, thin (but not extremely thin), and non-brittle plastics like 'friendly plastic' and 'thermoplastic' sheet.

Part Punching Service

We'll store your dies here and run parts for you when needed. Confidentiality assured.

One-step cut/emboss die

An innovative process. Simple yet elegant, facilitating many design options.

Pancake Donut Dies

For blanking flat parts with a hole in the center. These are not cheap, or easy to make, but they work!

Two-step 'puff and trim' die sets

Also known as matrix and blanking die sets. These bump up a shape into a piece of metal, and in step two the excess flat border is trimmed off, leaving a part that's all domed.
