Q: What materials can be die cut?
A variety of materials can be die cut. These materials include papers, fabrics, rubbers, foils, foams, non-wovens, films, and plastics.
Advantage Converting can source the materials required for die cutting through our extensive network of partners or use those provided by the customer.
Q: How can die cutting make production more efficient?
Die cutting is a great option for scaling production and increasing production efficiency. Die cutting can hold very tight tolerances at high output volumes. Tooling can be built to cut multiple parts simultaneously to best yield material, not only increasing efficiency but reducing scrap rate.
Q: What is custom die cutting?
Custom die cutting is the process of shearing materials using specialized tooling (a die) to mass produce a shape. The die has sharp edges that pierce the material, similar to how a cookie cutter is used to make shapes out of dough. Custom die cutting involves creating custom dies to obtain a unique, flat shape.
Advantage Converting uses a variety of advanced die cutting equipment and techniques that allows us to meet various specifications for size, shape, application, and volume needs. We have the capability to die cut up to 78 inches wide, die cut parts in a roll-to-roll process, and can process a wide variety of materials on our existing tooling and equipment.
