In turn, the planning department schedules and monitors to ensure on time dispatch.
Each individual Dies is assigned an identification number in the form of a bar-code. This ID makes the Dies traceable forever & contains details of blank used, operator worked, technology applied, specifications maintained, which are specified by the customer.
“We use genuine and first quality diamonds and raw materials for manufacturing Dies. We have our own proprietary technology called “Solid rock Technology” used in the Diamond mounting which makes our Dies durable and wear resistant.

KablosanTurkey: Mr. Manjunath, could you share your perception on what qualities makes a company - a good Die company?
Mr. Manjunath: A good Die company is usually the one which is reliable, trustworthy and preferably experienced. The company must have sound technical knowledge and be ready to share information on Die selection, usage and its proper maintenance. Moreover, a good Die company always supplies as per the customer requirement and advises the customer on specifications and correct blank or diamonds used. Also, ready to discuss and share latest developments and improvements. The company producing Dies should be willing to train the customer on Die maintenance. After sales service is also one essential feature of a good Die company.
