Our Die Cutting Service Types

  • Rotary die cutting. Rotary die cutters use cylindrical rolling dies mounted on a gear mechanism. The gears turn to press the die against product material, thereby punching out the desired shape as the die rolls across the material surface. This process is highly efficient and precise, which makes it ideal for large scale production.
  • Steel rule die cutting. Steel rule die cutting—also known as flatbed die cutting—uses a steel rule die mounted in a die board to push down against the substrate material. Once the shape has been created, a rubber or foam ejector built into the die board is used to eject the cut shape from the die board. This type of die cutting is not as quick as rotary die cutting, but it is the most common method used for thicker materials.
  • Punch press. A punch press uses a die set to cut or press holes into a material. A die set for a punch press contains male and female dies on either side of the workpiece that combine to punch a hole when mated.
  • Thermal die cutting techniques. Thermal die cutting offers a precise and efficient die cutting method, but is only compatible with materials that can be thermally displaced, such as vinyl and some plastics. Heat from electrical arcs or lasers precisely cut materials into the desired shape.
