Die-Cutting Process

Using die-cutting, we separate or stamp out shapes from flat parts using a hydraulic machine. This punches out the shape with many tons of pressure and a die-cut tool. These tools consist of a stamp (inner shape) and a die (outer shape). When the stamp hits the die, the material is separated from one another by a cut. There are also applications in which the counterpart to the punch is a flat base, for which the upper part of the tool then consists of a punching knife and the base of a softer substance.

We mainly die-cut thicker materials such as composites, technical textiles or leather. We only die-cut manually. Here we manually insert and position the workpieces. The punching stroke is hydraulic.

Exciting Advantages of Die-Cutting

The die-cutting procedure enables large quantities of flat components to be quickly processed. This usually leads to very low unit costs, but the die-cut tools have to be made individually. The cutting itself then takes place at high speed at which many parts can be cut out at the same time.

A variety of materials can be cut using a die-cutting process. These are mainly thin, flat materials like foils, plastics, paper and textiles. In addition, thicker substances like composite materials, cardboard, leather, textiles and metal sheets can be die-cut. For us, die-cutting serves more as an internal processing step and that’s why we focus on the materials that we use in our production processes.

Precise Coordination and Fixture Construction

Each project and every material is unique, and we also map this process. For this we combine individual punching device construction with test trials to approach the optimal processing.
