Rotary die cutting is a versatile fabrication process suitable for applications ranging from simple die cut labels and gaskets to complex, multi-layered parts. It can be used on a wide range of materials, including thin metal, plastic, paper, foam, fabric, and laminates, and offers several different die cutting capabilities, such as metal-to-metal, kiss cutting, and perforating.
Metal-to-metal die cutting: For lined or multi-layered materials, the type of die cutting in which the die cuts the design through the entire material, including, but not limited to, the face, adhesive, and backing material layer. The design is fully separated from the web.
Kiss cutting: For lined materials, the type of die cutting in which the die cuts the design through the face and adhesive material layers, but not the backing material layer. The design is not fully separated from the web, but can be easily removed from the intact backing layer.
Perforating: The type of die cutting in which the die cut design is held in place on the web material by a series of punched-in holes. The design is not fully separated from the web, but can be easily detached from the material along the perforated lines.
Rotary die cutting presses can also employ multiple cutting stations and dies. This configuration allows for several different operations to be performed in line along with the primary die cutting operation, such as slitting, scoring, and laminating. This approach decreases the need for operator involvement and shortens the lead and turnaround times.
