A Die Maker is Born
In 1952, an industry leader was born in Elkhart, Indiana. After two years of producing steel rule dies part-time in his basement, S. Ray Miller, the founder of Atlas Die, moved the operation into its first building and Atlas Die began. In 1969, we revolutionized steel rule diemaking with the development and introduction of laser technology into the diemaking process. Laser cutting replaced jigsaws in the cutting of the die base resulting in greater precision. Today Atlas Die produces over 150,000 die products each year.
In 1988 we began a series of acquisitions to grow our die making business, product lines and technology. We have since made seven acquisitions including facilities in Illinois, North Carolina, Georgia, and Massachusetts. We currently have multiple steel rule die locations around the U.S. giving us unmatched manufacturing depth and resources. Our equipment list includes lasers, WaterJet cutter, automated rule benders, grinding machines, rule processors and nicking machines.
