Flat Cutting Dies

What is flatbed die cutting? This method of die cutting uses a flat fixed base and moveable head. The cutting die is designed from sharp strips of steel rule (which is a metal that is bent to match the profile of the part and embedded into slots in a plywood cutting board). Flatbed die cutting is commonly used as an alternative to rotary die cutting.

Flatbed die cutting is an effective fabrication method, however, it’s one main drawback is that it is overall slower than rotary die cutting. It is also more limited in producing various types of parts. You can use flatbed die cutting for the following projects:

  • Materials that are more than 1/8 inches thick
  • Products with multiple shapes
  • Large die cuts that can’t be done using other processes
  • Whenever there are concerns relating to budget; as an alternative to higher-cost processes
