The term 'die' is most commonly used in tooling, i.e. press tools punch and die - but there are many other types of die, e.g. thread cutting dies, forming dies, forging dies, die-casting dies, etc. The term when applied to steel often refers to drawing dies through which hot-rolled wire and bar are drawn to produce the finish and dimensional accuracy that is required for bright steel.
