I know it’s been on your mind all day, niggling away at you for hours: ‘how do they decorate lovely fishing lures with such ornate lines?’
Well thanks to Die Stampco, Michigan’s finest, er, die stamp company, we now know.
In this video they explain how it uses Delcam’s ArtCAM to import vector artwork directly into the CADCAM software.
From this they can begin engraving a magnesium mould in minutes – previously this could take up to 8 hours to get right- and the team have moved into using PowerShape too, hoping to speed the process up even further
This mould then creates the contoured rubber die that’s then applied into the stamp for applying the fishing lure decoration.
Die Stampco also get extra points for having a website straight outta’ 1996.
