many cases, overnight. We maintain a large inventory of finished new
dies from which various shipments can be made for next day delivery.
However, the possible variations in die specifications are almost infinite.
Therefore, not all possibilities can be anticipated. We willingly add
additional sizes to our inventory which customers use frequently. You
can depend on us to do all we can to reduce your inventory. In many
situations, we can ship up to 100 new dies on the day an order is received.
Typical lead-time for dies not in inventory is one to two weeks. Some
orders for unusual diamond sizes or specifications can take longer.
Name your price! We have a standard price
list, but our prices are based on many factors within your control, such
as the volume of business you choose to do with us, the quantity of one
size you order, the size of the order, urgency of your requirement and
any unusual specifications. Therefore, name your price, your size, quantity
and specifications and see what can happen to our price list.
many recut sizes can I count on from VCI new dies?
Name your quantity. We have engineering
data that can give you our standard for any size ordered. We are dedicated
to giving you more for your money. One of the ways we do this is in
the size and quality of the diamonds we select. Also, you may specify
the number of recut sizes that you desire and we can engineer a die
for that purpose.
Generally speaking, $3.00 per mil. We
are leaders in low prices for recutting among the major players. To
remove guess work from your recutting prices, deal with us and know
exactly how we will price a shipment of dies to be recut by downloading
our recut estimator, or requesting a CD copy of our recut estimator.

standard size tolerances vary according to size. In general, the numerical
tolerance is tighter for smaller sizes and wider for larger hole sizes.
As a percentage of diameter, the opposite is true. The larger hole sizes
have a closer tolerance based on percentage of diameter. We also customize
tolerances for your specific needs and price constraints.

you make dies to tighter specifications?
willingly accommodate tighter specifications, sometimes with no increase
hole size standard tolerance for recuts is the same as new dies. The
other specifications such as drawing angle, bearing percentage, entrance
angle, etc. in a perfect world where diamonds grow as hole size gets
larger, recut specifications should be the same as new dies. However,
each wire mill must find its own accommodation with the perfect new
die specifications and the reality of the resources available for recutting,
the material being drawn, mill practice and costs. Therefore, we will
recut dies to any standard a customer chooses (see standards
chart for example).

can I quickly and easily calculate a string of dies with start wire,
finish wire sizes and number of dies in the string as givens?
try our draft calculator. With any three of five parameters as givens,
(start wire size, finish wire size, number of dies in string, draft
percentage, elongation percentage) you can instantly calculate the other
two unknowns and sizes for your string of dies. (You must log-in to
area to view draft calculator.)
We willingly accept orders for metric sizes for both hole size and casing
