Helpful Tips - Branding Die
A branding die is a detachable head, made of brass or stainless steel. It connects to either a handle or an electric branding iron and functions as a heated stamp.
Helpful Tips - Material
Materials that can be marked with a branding die include (not limited to) wood, leather, plastic, rubber, cork, straw, dense foam, candle wax, soap, Plexiglas and some food items. When material quality and texture varies, such as plastics and leather, BIU highly recommends that samples be provided to us so that we can “test-brand” those samples and make our recommendations accordingly. BIU is not responsible for any damage made to any items.
Helpful Tips - Brass
Brass is an alloy consisting of 60% copper and 35% zinc. It is an ideal combination for fast and even heating.
Images can range from simple to complex
Prior to producing any branding die, the BIU in-house Graphic Design Department reviews all artwork received from customers and prepares a proof that is detailed and clear. This ensures highly defined details and intricate contours on the die face.
Branded images show beautifully and add a touch of pride to any product.
BIU ’s high quality dies are fitted with either a 3/8”-16 or a 5/8”-11
Helpful Tips - Threaded Shank
BIU can also make smooth shanks to fit branding irons (acquired elsewhere) in any specified dimensions. If the customer requires the use of both a threaded shank and a smooth shank, BIU can provide an adapter that can work both ways.
Clear Branded Marks
The branding die face features a custom engraved image that is raised 3/32”. The 3/32” relief ensures an accurate detail transfer of the image and prevents background marks.
A branding die with a ½” square face or smaller is 5/8” thick. Die faces with larger dimensions are ¾” thick unless otherwise specified. The thickness of the dies guarantee durability and long life. Overall image dimensions can range from 1/32” to 19” X 29”.
