A traditional laser die leaves one side of the board "blown out". This allows wiggle room for the steel rule to move and doesn't provide for a precision tight die board.
Precision Tight! Midwest's dies are created by two separate boards. By doing this we eliminate the "blown out" effect, providing twice the holding power and stability for the steel rule. As a result, we create some of the most precision dies in the industry!
