Think of Budnick as your partner for all things converting. When it comes to precision cutting/converting, we have an array of capabilities and the extensive industry knowledge to provide the correct part, using the proper process, at a reasonable price.
High Speed Plotter
The high speed, digital, table-top cutting system works great on a wide variety of both roll and sheet material for shorter production runs requiring tight tolerance kiss-cut, through-cut, or router cut parts.
Pairing laser technology with rotary press capabilities allows us to produce infinite parts in endless ways - enabling us to create unique parts and prototypes in a production setting with little or no tooling.
The CNC controlled ultra-high pressure water stream cuts almost any material to extremely tight tolerances, elimination of tooling costs makes it ideal for when conventional methods are unavailable
What We Offer
Today’s engineers need the design freedom to maximize space utilization while creating cost effective products. To succeed, they need both materials and fabricating processes to meet stringent tolerance requirements. The variety of Budnick’s precision cutting capabilities allows us to use the optimum cutting method for your part’s design and material composition often without the assistance of traditional dies and tools.
Unlike many of our competitors that are forced to “fit a square peg into a round hole,” we have the right process for almost all jobs. We are fabricating parts from materials that were once considered “unmachinable.”
When selecting the proper cutting method, you must consider the material composition, thickness, tolerances, quantities per run, finished part presentation, and many other factors.
Waterjet is a great solution for thicker foams and parts that require very intricate cuts while eliminating the thermal stress issues affecting some materials during the laser cutting process. For materials that are not thermally sensitive, our in-line laser cutting system is ideal for quickly produced intricate parts - and is perfect for presenting kitted rolls where multiple component designs are required on the same roll.
Because we retain experienced press operators and all precision cutting is done using ISO 9001:2015 certified quality processes, you can be sure that you will consistently receive high-quality parts that meet your design and tolerance demands.

Budnick prides itself on offering a wide range of services to our customers that open capabilities to more specialized materials. Here are some case studies on how our precision cutting techniques have helped our customers.
Conductive Die Cut Gasket for Electrical Grounding
A major appliance OEM needed an electrical grounding solution due to quality issues with wiring/lighting.
- Worked with 3M™ to provide products for testing
- Provided a die-cut gasket with electrically conductive properties
- Quick and easy to apply
Case Study Custom Adhesive
Using an expensive multi-layered double coated foam for gap filling in their oven doors was creating problems for a major appliance manufacturer.
- Developed a better solution with a custom product that fully fit their needs
- Improved the customer's application methods in the process
- Helped both the customer's bottom line and their production line workers
Case Study Quick Response
A commercial refrigeration manufacturer needed to protect commercial coolers from the time they were on the production floor to installation.
- Customer was looking for a product to act as a bumper on the commercial coolers
- Bumpers needed to withstand high temperatures while being transported in train cars
- The bumpers would be applied to metal surfaces and needed clean removability
