Industrial diesets are used to stamp metal parts. They operate at very high temperatures and are used in a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, and medical. Die sets come in many different shapes and sizes and can be configured to handle a variety of materials. They typically use pressure to create the desired shape on the part.

Diesets for metal stamping produce high-pressure, often hot, diesels and other hot fluids. These machines are extremely dangerous for both employees and bystanders.

There are a variety of pressing injuries that can occur due to the high pressure and heat in diesels and other hot fluids. The most common injury is called “flash burns”. This occurs when the skin is exposed to the heat of the pressurized fluid, causing a burn. Other pressing injuries include:

-Extrusion rupture: When the die or screw breaks the metal being stamped, causing hot fluid and particles to be expelled violently out of the machine. This can cause serious burns and even death.

-Pieces breaking off: When the die or screw strikes a part of the metal being stamped, it can break off. This can lead to pieces being left inside the machine that can become jammed and cause an injury.

-Injuries from moving parts: Diesels and other hot fluids produce a great deal of particulate matter, which can be dangerous if it gets caught in moving parts. This includes things like screws, gears, and blades.

If you have been injured by a Dieset for Metal Stamping (Presses) you should contact an attorney. The presses can cause serious injuries, and even death.  A lawyer can help navigate the legal system and protect your rights.
