Kiss Cutting Plastic with Custom Die Cutting Services

Die Cutting CAKiss cutting is a specialized die cutting process that pierces through the upper layers of a material while leaving the backing layer intact. This technique is often used in manufacturing labels, stickers, and other adhesive-backed products, where the precision of the cut is paramount. The process involves using digital die cutting machines that accurately control the pressure required to cut, creating a "crack and peel" surface for easy liner removal. This method is highly valued for its efficiency and precision, particularly in the timely assembly of parts and components in various manufacturing operations​. The best die cutting in CA offers a multitude of options for kiss cutting and more.

Here's a list of everyday plastic parts that are typically made using rotary die kiss cutting:

Most people in the States have smartphones, and many have screen protectors. You can thank custom die cutters in CA for these protective screens. Have you ever wondered how these protectors are made? They are made, in part, through the process of rotary die cutting and kiss cutting abilities.

The kiss cutting process for making screen protectors involves several precise steps:

  1. Material Placement: A roll of plastic film, selected for its clarity, durability, and thinness, is positioned in the kiss cutting machine.
  2. Die Cutting: A rotary die, which is a cylindrical cutting tool with a screen protector shape, rotates over the plastic film. The die is engineered to apply enough pressure to cut through the plastic film but not through the entire thickness. This leaves the cut protector attached to the backing material.
  3. Controlled Pressure: The machine precisely controls the pressure of the die, ensuring that the cut is clean and accurate without penetrating the backing layer.
  4. Product Formation: As the die moves over the film, it creates individual screen protectors, still attached to the backing paper or film, ready for the next stage of production or packaging.

This process allows for rapid, efficient production of screen protectors with exact dimensions, crucial for their functionality on various electronic device screens.
