The Challenger die is designed to cut through your most demanding abrasive materials while running more than twice as long as typical chrome-coated solid dies. Enhanced tool steel combined with our proprietary TufShield plating greatly improves performance on the most abrasive materials. You know the ones: thermal transfer, abrasive inks, credit/gift card stocks, clay coated materials, recycled tags and even several glass bead stocks. The Challenger’s improved wearability results in more even blade wear, meaning you get more retools. At the end of the day, you’re running more material, longer – because you have the toughest die for those most abrasive materials.
