Blacksmith Forged Envelope Dies were the first product manufactured by BEST when the company was founded in 1966. BEST combines these old world forging techniques with modern manufacturing methods and machinery to create the ultimate in high quality cutting dies. All in-house process control means quick turnaround times are the norm and not the exception. This includes the use of an onsite Salt Pot for heat treating Hand Forged Dies and a Vacuum Furnace for heat treating small or intricate shapes requiring CNC or EDM Wire Cutting. More detailed information on the benefits of the Hand Forged process, and the Salt Pot and Vacuum Furnace used for heat treating can be found in the Capabilities section of our webpage.
