rotary die cutting

Rotary die cutting is the process of cutting or perforating a desired shape out of flexible material using a rotary press.

Generally, rotary die cutting is good for:

  • High volume projects of consistent cut
  • Smaller sized products
  • Cutting products from a web (continuous roll)
  • Producing less waste than other, comparable methods
  • Low-tolerance, precision cutting
  • Fast turnaround times
  • Multiple process projects – rotary die cutting can be combined with printing, embossing, laminating and other processes.
  • Kiss cutting materials on a liner

Presses Used in Rotary Die Cutting

Rotary die presses allow for consistent accuracy and high speed converting of various flexible materials. Rotary die presses can be set up to die cut and kiss cut, while laminating, scoring and sheeting in line. The web width of the rotary die press may determine the width of the material being used, the size of the rolls and how many processes may be designed into the fabrication process. Both the fabrication process and the rotary die cutting of parts entail detailed preparation and engineering.
