How to order Punches & Dies




Our part numbering system is designed to be descriptive, accurate and easy to use.  
Part Number P5-8-580 punch or Part Number SD5-13-385 die.

Meaden Printing Part number description

The first letter indicates the basic type of item:                 

P    =  Punch                          
DP = Long life punch          
SD = Serrrated Die               
D    = Die ( plain no teeth )
DD = Long life die                 

The first set of numbers indicates the size of the hole measured to the nearest 1/32" of an inch.
For example:  5 = 5/32" = .156" diameter hole
                          6 = 6/32" = .187" or 3/16" diameter 

The middle set of numbers indicates the body diameter of the part measured to the nearest 1/32 of and inch

For example:  8 =  8/32"  = .250" or 1/4"
                         13 = 13/32" = .406"
The last set of numbers indicates the length or height of the part measured as a decimal inch.
For example:  580 = .580" long
                           385 = .385" long
It is always helpful to identify the press or piece of equipment that the part will be used with.  Most round dies are stocked serrated. Where plain dies are available the D is used without the S to indicate a non serrated hole.
