A die is a flat, often rectangular, wooden surface that contains sharp blades designed in various shapes and sizes. Each die is created specifically to suit the product(s) that requires it. The die is inserted into a die cutting machine, which presses the die against the paper to cut it. Something important to note is that this process does not chip, burn, melt, or in other words damage the paper in any way.
Our die cutting machines are primarily used for producing media, cosmetic, or pharmaceutical packaging. It scores the paper, providing a dotted line, allowing the paper to be easily folded along the line. When all the necessary lines are folded, a box is created for any media, cosmetic, or pharmaceutical packaging. Die cutting can also be used to perforate paper. Perforation is used for concert or show tickets, allowing the paper to easily be torn and separated along the perforated line.
