Jacobsen Industries was established in 1946 as Jacobsen Steel Rule Dies. Our founder, Frank Jacobson, started building steel rule dies shortly after serving in World War II. Today we continue to offer the same service and quality that Frank insisted on over 60 years ago.
Steel Rule Dies are used in die cutting a range of sheet and roll materials including paper, plastic, cardboard, rubber, foam and numerous others. Steel Rule Dies can be made to cut nearly any shape, as a matter of fact; puzzles are cut with Steel Rule Dies.
Jacobsen Industries make steel rule dies for the “trade” as well as for our own “in-house” needs.
Customers tell us what they want to make, and we make it happen. Have sample material? Send it along with your die order and we will make samples, using your material, to ensure that the die, and part, are to spec.
Our in house CAD capabilities, allow us to have the die boards cut directly from your data, ensuring an accurate die-cut. We can accept many forms of data files, but prefer .dxf, .dwg or .pdf.
The tool room can turn around most tooling within a week, but we can also offer a quicker turnaround if needed.
Prototypes as well
Many of our customers bring in a hand cut sample, or the part that they actually want a die-cut for, and we work with them to come up with a solution.
