Die Cutting

Acro Manufacturing Industries Limited is a valued fabricator of gasket seals, and it also offers such value-added services as flash cutting, design assistance, reverse engineering, and die cutting. Die cutting is a popular option that allows the customer to cut various materials into shapes and designs while leaving an extended liner. Unlike flash cutting, this technique does not require a machine blade held in place for cutting cleanly with precise measurements.

Sometimes referred to as shearing, die cutting is a process in which a moving blade is used to push a workpiece against a die, or a fixed blade. The space between the blades depends on the material being sheared, but is typically between five and 40 per cent of the material thickness; this affects the finish of the cut and the power consumption. Die cutting cuts stock without forming chips or using burning or melting, and it is commonly employed for metal, fabric, paper, and plastics.

Among the advantages of die cutting is the way it creates a smooth, crisp edge with a specific, consistent finish by using a sharp steel blade fashioned into a particular shape. The range of possible shapes it can yield is virtually endless, because the die is specifically customized for every project. This ability to make specific shapes can truly distinguish a product or brand. Other key benefits of trusting the Acro team for die cutting:

  • Less waste. Less material is wasted around the shapes than with other cutting techniques, which is both cost-efficient and environmentally friendly.
  • Less time. Only one machine is required for a die-cutting job, making the process efficient and cost-effective as far as time goes.
  • Fast work. Die-cutting equipment creates shapes with one punch, thereby producing identical forms quickly. Even a manual die cutter makes shapes at a faster pace than traditional cutting techniques can.
  • Complexity of shapes. Multiple cuts and layers can accomplish more complex forms.
  • Aesthetic appeal. Die cutting enables creative shapes that look good and ceases in cards and plastic.
