Die cutting is the process by which packaging materials are cut, a key packaging creation phase which follows on from the printing phase.
The result is highly accurate profiles and extremely complex shapes which potentially even vary.
Initially designed to cut leather in the footwear sector, die cuts are now key folding and cutting tools in the packaging sector
for paper, cardboard and rubber, including in small quantities.
They are wooden structures equipped with sharp metal blades which cut paper and cardboard rapidly and accurately A non-cutting blade called a creaser can also be added to the die cutter where necessary to press the die cut material and prepare it for the next stage, folding.
