Manufacturing And Heat Treating Advantages

Blacksmith hand-forged cut-and-stack label dies were among the first products manufactured by BEST when the company was founded in 1966. We combine these hand-forging techniques with modern manufacturing methods and machinery providing the ultimate in high-quality cutting die. Our all in-house process control means quick turnaround times are the norm and not the exception: an onsite Salt Pot for heat treating Hand Forged Dies, 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 In-House Process section.

Service And Quality

Our dedication to the customer allows us to respond to unique, one-of-a-kind problems. Exceptional in-house capabilities provide BEST products with superior level of craftsmanship and greater control over quality, as compared to cutting die makers who outsource their services. Your die manufacturing and service needs will be met to your specifications, delivered on time, offering enhanced quality at prices that enable our customers to have a competitive edge.
