Die-cutting of Special Shapes
Most of our labels will be die-cut as the labels pass through the presses. This is accomplished in one of three ways:
a. Engraved Rotary Dies — The cutting shape is engraved on rolls exactly the same size as the plate rolls that carry the plates. All rolls are synchronized through the press and usually the waste is pulled from around the shapes as the last operation.
b. Flexible Magnetic Dies— These shapes are mounted on powerful magnetic cylinders and are flexible and mounted much as the plates are mounted.
c. Laser Die-cutting — Primarily used with product produced by the digital press. The equipment die-cuts with amazing accuracy without the use of expensive rotary die-cutting tooling.
