DieEstimator is an easy-to-use yet powerful solution for creating consistent die cost estimates.  Estimates all die types and sizes including progressive, transfer, and line dies on plate or cast shoes with DieEstimator.   

DieEstimator guides you through a simple 6-step estimating process from project information to final estimate report.  Use our measure pallet to capture key values from the part or process to help build your estimate.  Our virtual die estimating assistant is there along the way to perform calculations and suggest entries.

DieEstimator gives you control of all inputs and settings that determine the final estimate.  This ensures consistent results that reflect your actual cost and meet your business goals.
