This is one of our most commonly used methods of die cutting. We use a cylindrical die that is affixed to a rotary press. The die makes cuts, creases, and perforations, while web/sheet materials are fed through this machine. The method of cutting can quickly create identical parts.

This process of cutting is more closely associated with stamping than cutting. A custom die is used to stamp web materials. This sort of die cutting is mostly used when cutting in small quantities, as well as when needing thicker materials.
This method of cutting is utilized when working with laminated materials that cannot have their liner punctured. This cutting leaves final products with the die cut part connected to the liner.
Creating pull-tabs is easy when using die cutting machines. Cut materials have a portion of the liner extending to leave a pull-tab.
