Relentless Pursuit

The relentless pursuit of new technology and an absolute commitment to customer service are the guiding principles behind National Steel Rule. We believe that customers are partners who are entitled to as much technical assistance as possible in solving diecutting problems.

To provide this assistance, we maintain a full service testing facility, complete with a rotary diecutter, two flat diecutters, a depth penetration tester and various measuring devices. This enables National to evaluate and make specific recommendations as to which of our products will provide maximum performance in the field. Our testing service can greatly reduce costly trial and error testing and is available by simply submitting samples of your most difficult diecutting problems.

All National products come with an unconditional guarantee of satisfaction. Our reputation is on the line with each and every product we sell. All our products go through rigid inspections throughout manufacturing to insure quality and performance.

Custom Engineered Rule

By combining multiple height, thickness, hardness, bevel and tooth configurations, the number of products we can manufacture is almost infinite. National has created more rule products than any other rule manufacturer in history.  To date, over 25,000 varieties and more are added every week. We can modify an existing design to specifically meet your particular need. This flexibility assures you that we won’t ever force your application to fit within our product line, but rather, we will make our product to effectively fit your specific application.

Testing, Development and Consulting Service

We view our customers as valued partners and are firmly committed to providing them any technical assistance that may be needed. To do this effectively, we maintain a full service testing facility. This enables us to evaluate a specific rule’s performance on various materials customers may send us and to recommend one or more rule and or process solutions to the specific converting problem or need. This free service can often reduce costly trial and error testing. Just send us the material in question and we’ll do the rest.
