Would a precision punch and die set in a Danley Die shoe be able to punch .0625" thick neoprene rubber parts with a square OD, round ID and 15° slot on one side entering the center hole which looks kike a "C", and has 4 small holes, one in each corner?
I can make the hardened and ground punch & die parts with serious precision, but before I go to all the trouble to design and make it, I need to know if anyone has punched rubber in a die like that, and what to expect or avoid!
I can only assume that a stripper plate would be needed to release the blank part after punching! That a die with a few tenth's of clearence should cut with little effort! So a large arbor press would be all I need to work it!
I will be needing 100's of these parts, 16 at a time!
