Flatbed Die Cutting

 

Flatbed Die-Cutting is the process of cutting or perforating the desired shape out of material using a hydraulic flatbed press.

Generally, flatbed die-cutting is good for:

  • Low volume projects of consistent cut
  • Larger sized products
  • Cutting products from sheeted materials
  • High precision cutting of materials over 1/8” thick
  • Projects where tooling costs must be kept to a minimum
  • Multiple process projects; rotary die cutting can be combined with coating, embossing, creasing, laminating and other processes

 

Presses Used in Flatbed Die-Cutting

Flatbed die presses allow for very high precision cuts on materials over 1/8” thick.  Unlike rounded cuts produced by the rotary die cut machine, flatbed cuts are perpendicular to the die bed. Cuts are sharper and crisper.  Flatbed Die-Cut presses can accommodate much larger materials.  Steel rule dies are easier to change out and therefore more efficient when cutting multiple shapes.
