The Ins-and-Outs of Flatbed Die Cutting
Flatbed die cutting, which is commonly referred to as steel rule die cutting, is a fabrication process that utilizes a flatbed die cutting press and steel rule dies to cut and convert materials into custom designs and shapes. The process is suitable for a wide range of materials, including fabrics, plastic, paper, rubber, and metal. You can also process laminates and composites to create uniform parts for different manufacturing applications.
When comparing flatbed cutting to other forms of die cutting (rotary die cutting and laser die cutting), flatbed die cutting is considered the most suitable option for processing thick materials. Flatbed die cutting produces larger parts and can complete small orders and short production runs. Although flatbed die cutting has many advantages, that does not mean it is the only choice for die cutting. If high-precision and intricate designs are a necessity, you may want to consider rotary die cutting services.

Custom Die Cutting
There is a great deal of steel rule die types that are used in the flatbed process. Determining the type that should be used for cutting requires several important considerations. It is important to consider the type of material being cut/converted, all design and manufacturing specifications, and also the total quantity of finished parts.Related Reading:
