Die-cutting of all types of self-adhesive and non-adhesive products used in numerous industrial and consumer applications is a major part of PolarSeal’s production. To produce a die-cut, certain parameters need to be assessed eg. material type, tolerance, volume and 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. The correct presentation relative to the product and your manufacturing methods will result in cost effective, time saving processes with little or no operator fatigue. 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.
