Cutting method capabilities

We utilise bespoke cutting methods to produce high-end and high performance components, for all types of self-adhesive and non-adhesive products.

FLAT BED MEDICAL DIE CUTTING

Medical die cutting of all types of self-adhesive and non-adhesive products used in numerous medical device applications is a major part of PolarSeal’s production. To produce a die-cut, certain parameters need to be assessed such as material type, tolerance, volume, and final presentation required. Once these have been assessed and the feasibility of producing the required die-cut ascertained, the machine and tool type is then selected. There are four main tooling options: steel rule, two-part die set, rotary die, or rotary flexi-die with cutting tolerance down to ±0.003mm achievable, subject to the type of material being cut. Presentation is a very important item to be addressed as the correct presentation relative to the product and your manufacturing methods will result in cost-effective, time-saving processes. With over 30 years of experience, PolarSeal will guide you in the choice of individual pieces, roll form, dry edge, split liner, sprocket holed, or other configuration for an efficient engineered part.

MAXIMUM DIE-CUT SIZE: 250mm x 200mm

ROTARY MEDICAL DIE CUTTING

The use of high-speed rotary die cutting equipment fitted with an extensive range of innovative capabilities enables us to configure a vast range of medical devices and possibilities in presentation, style, and format. When combined with lamination, multi-layer substrates, printed backing papers, and sheeting in a single pass, the possibilities are truly endless. Final die-cut presentation options include cutting to individual products, sheets, parts on rolls or work-sets. The capabilities also include the perforation of materials to aid breathability and product design. PolarSeal has the capability to perforate almost any material to a bespoke pattern and even to register, providing product designers with a far greater choice of perforation pattern and format.

LARGE FORMAT MEDICAL DIE CUTTING

PolarSeal has the facility to produce very large-scale die-cuts up to 1600mm x 800mm in size. Large and irregular shaped gaskets or masking products are typical items produced in this way.

Frequently Asked QUestions

Cutting is converting specified material into precision components. The shape and type of components can be tailored using a variety of cutting techniques.

  1. Custom shapes can be created in a simple process quickly and effectively.
  2. A variety of designs can be cut even through multiple layers.
  3. High volume can be achieved.
  1. High volume production
  2. High precision and accuracy
  3. Combining multiple process in the same line such as lamination and printing
  1. Less expensive tooling
  2. Ability to cut through thicker materials
  3. Waste reduction

You will have the ability to cut very large parts that not many machines can convert.
