Choosing Rotary Die Cutting
Dies can produce a varied amount of products, and this is only possible through having different cutting methods. Two of the most common cutting styles are flatbed and rotary die cutting. Knowing the difference between the two types of cutting is beneficial for purchasing, but it is more important to speak with professionals about what is right for your company and its cutting needs. At Colvin Freidman, we can custom design cutting processes from scratch based on the individual needs of our clients.
Rotary steel dies tend to be more expensive than flatbed dies. At times, it could be more expensive than its counterpart. Flatbed dies are usually less costly for specific reasons. One major factor in pricing is a rotary dies' ability to run more pieces (amount, speed, and accuracy of cut). Although a flatbed might be cheaper to purchase, a rotary die might end up being more cost effective in the long run.
Flatbed dies are usually more practical than rotary dies when only producing single or small distribution. If the die is used continually to produce a particular product, a rotary die will end up being more efficient and economical.
