Die Cutting

Die cutting is one of the most popularly requested custom manufacturing services that we offer.   But what does that mean, and how does it work?  Think of it as a cookie cutter.   You can make any shape of cookie you like with the right die… or in our case, you can make any shape of your desired material.  Custom Converting is all about fulfilling your requirements.

"Die cutting is used in manufacturing a variety of items by cutting components quickly and efficiently, with the perfect cut every time. In manufacturing processes, large industrial-strength die cutting machines are usually used to speed up the process and withstand the constant pressures of a heavy workload." (scrapbook.com)

Custom Converting has a number of industrial die cutting machines, set up for steel rule or rotary dies or Class A tooling.   We have die cut everything from plastic to fabric, kraft paper to foam.    This allows us to manufacture parts for electronics, medical devices, fashion, the life-science community, and more.
