When making a die, the die maker utilizes the help of die board jigsaw machine or die board laser cutting machine to cut accurate positioning kerfs in the base according to the layout design. The steel rule is made out of specially hardened steel. The steel is bent into exact positions and sizes and inserted into the kerfs that have been cut into the substrate. After the steel cutting blade is inserted, the die maker creates an ejection rubber pad or use foam which is adhered to the die base. This material helps to get out the materials from the die after the cut is made.
