Flatbed Die-Cutting is the process of stamping out shapes of material with steel rule dies adjusted to varying degrees of hydraulic pressure.
Lower tooling costs
When volumes are lower, die-cut sizes are large or many shapes are required, the less expensive flatbed dies provide value over rotary tooling.
No curvature on thick materials
The direct vertical cut of the flatbed process provides a tighter tolerance on materials over 1/8" in thickness. Rotary tooling can create a very slight hourglass shape in the material.
Some combinations of material and design specifications lend themselves to flatbed die-cutting over rotary, waterjet or laser cutting.
The versatility of the flatbed process allows Budnick to precision sheet, laminate, kiss-cut, butt-cut, and die-cut a wide array of materials to meet or exceed your demands. By offering Rotary, Flatbed, Waterjet and Laser cutting under one roof, Budnick is always able to provide you with economical products, quality parts and the design freedom to solve problems.
