During the fabrication of multilayer ceramic substrates, a stack of ceramic green sheets is punched and laminated in a press. During this process it must be assured that the green sheet stack does not buckle or move. This article describes the addition of a secondary stripper to the laminating die, to thereby prevent internal distortion in the green sheet stack. Referring to Fig. 1, the laminating die includes a blanking punch 2 and a primary stripper 3. During blanking, pressure is applied to green sheet stack 5 by applying air pressure to shedder 6. Secondary stripper 1, which is located between punch 2 and primary stripper 3, supports and holds selvedge 4 prior to and during blanking and lamination, by means of spring and air pressure. Fig. 2 illustrates the detailed design of the secondary stripper.
