Benefits of Kiss Cutting
Kiss cutting is a vital manufacturing process that provides converted adhesive tape solutions. During this cutting process, perimeters for each piece is evenly stamped out with a sharp metal die. What makes kiss cutting unique is that when it cuts, it does not fully penetrate the piece’s backing material. It is called kiss cutting because it is like the blade is gently kissing the sheet material. Dies typically cut through the entire materials, but that is not the case for kiss cutting.
