Die Cutting Equipment

Die Cutting Equipment Machinery by Spartanics
Die cutting equipment is one of Spartanics specialties.  As an alternative to rotary die cutters or platen presses, Spartanics offers optically registered Steel Rule Die Cutting Machinery and Hard Tool Die Cutting Machinery that will deliver cut-to-print registration accuracy of +/- 0.1mm or better.  The modular design of Spartanics Die Cutting Equipment allows operators to change steel rules dies in minutes or switch to hard tooling, handle coil-fed or sheet-fed jobs.  A wide array of input and output modules can be re-configured for job changing requirements.

Industrial die cutting equipment allows the same shape to be cut uniformly in various materials. This process is known as die cutting. The cuts that are generated from this process are referred to as blanks. Spartanics’ die cutting machines have provided many of our clients with opportunities in markets, such as cards, nameplates, labels, and magnets.

Steel Rule Dies include special sharp blades mounted to a die board for short run, quick change die cutting. Hard Tool dies are specially machined metal that include a punch and a die block for longer run, high volume die cutting of parts that require specific sizing requirements and very clean edges.   Hard tools are also known as male/female tooling or Class A tooling.

The material that is being cut is placed on a flat surface and the die is pressed into the material, resulting in a cut or blank. Our cut-to-print registration feed equipment integrated with a punching press ensures that each die cut part is exactly the same size and shape.

Die cutting is the general process of using a die to shape different types of materials. There are different types of die cutting processes that can be used for various applications. Some of the different types of die cutting include:

  • Kiss Cutting
  • Printer Slitting
  • Scoring
  • Perforating
  • Laminating
  • Through Cutting
  • Rotary Punching

Die cutting can be completed on either flatbed or rotary presses. The flatbed die cutter has the ability to cut different materials by applying pressure vertically to make this cut. This process makes the machine a better solution for thicker products and a relatively small order. Rotary die cutting shape products by feeding the material through two rolling cylinders at a high speed. These characteristics make this machine ideal for thin products and a high order quantity.

Spartanics Die Cutting Equipment sets the standard and provides a strong competitive advantage relied upon by pioneering companies.  The modular design and consistent cut-to-print registration accuracy will provide you with the flexibility and precision you need.   Spartanics is able to customize each system with different pre-press and finishing options.

  • XY Registration
  • High Speed Production
  • Long Life Tooling
  • Compatibility
  • Elimination of Operator Error
  • Variety of Material Applications
