Die Cutting Process
Die cutting is the process of using a die to shear webs of low-strength materials, such as rubber, fiber, foil, cloth, paper, corrugated fiberboard, paperboard, plastics, pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes, foam and sheet metal. In the metalworking and leather industries, the process is known as die clicking.
When laser cutting isn't an option, we can click your design on our clicker press. This process requires a design or that same dxf or dwg file to create your die to allow our press to fabricate (click) your product. The process is like a cookie cutter, but on a larger scale. Dies can come in array of sizes, but the most common are 1.25" in height.
Die cutting is a process that's often used in packaging design on thicker materials were drag knife technology isn't possible.
