Leading supplier of high-quality die cut gaskets and die cut products
Our various die-cutting techniques can be optimized to best suit your application and production volume, resulting in cost savings and increased efficiency.
Broad die-cutting capabilities
Kiss cutting is a process where a laminated material is die-cut to the liner without cutting through the liner, leaving the die-cut part affixed to the liner. Parts can be rolled around a core on the liner making them easier to handle.
Rotary die cutting uses a cylindrical die on a rotary press. A long sheet or a web of material is fed through the rotary press into an area that holds a rotary tool that will cut out shapes, make perforations or creases, or even cut the sheet or web into smaller parts. Rotary die cutting creates the same part repeatedly at very tight tolerances.
With flatbed die cutting shapes are stamped out of material utilizing steel rule dies that are adjusted accordingly to varying degrees of hydraulic or mechanical presses. Advantages of flatbed die cutting are seen with lower quantities, larger die cuts, and thicker materials.
Match metal die-cutting
In match metal die cutting, materials pass through a cutting die constructed of a top and bottom die which are matched (male/female) to provide an extremely precise cut. Match Metal die-cutting is typically used for higher volume applications that require extreme precision.
Compound die cutting performs multiple steps in one pass. The compound die-cut implements more than one operation during the cutting cycle.
In a punch, press material runs through the press while a hydraulic ram at the top powers the die to cut the material. This type of die-cutting is advantageous for speed and productivity.
Multiple webs come together in a single pass to create a complex multilayer part.
