Steel Rule Die Cutting
Steel rule die cutting is one of the most common forms of die cutting. When a steel rule die is created, it is bent and formed to customer specifications for cutting and stamping out custom parts and components. We start out with a sheet of steel that is bent and formed into a custom shape to match our customer’s dimensional requirements. The steel rule dies are then used on flatbed machinery, to “punch out” different shapes from non-metallic materials. Steel rule die cutting is a faster and cleaner way of manufacturing gaskets, seals, and custom die cut products.
Rotary Die Cutting
Rotary die cutting uses a cylindrical die on a rotary press to cut gaskets. As the die rotates, a large sheet of material is fed into the press at the same speed as the rotation. As the die makes contact with the material, it creases, perforates or cuts out the custom shape from the sheet of material.
Kiss cutting is the process in which pressure sensitive adhesive backed material is partially, but not completely cut through. This method cuts through the actual gasket material and adhesive to the liner on the back. By cutting the gasket in this method, the gasket retains its pressure sensitive adhesive backing and liner allowing for a “peel and stick” application.
Please visit our gasket materials page for more information on our extensive selection of materials. Most materials are available with or without pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing.
