The Different Types of Die Cutting Machines

In the metalwork industry, cutting machines are used for cutting, shaping and forming metals. With a mold or template, the die is custom made according to the required specifications. There are numerous conventional types of die cutters, such as flat bed, rotary and press models. Across the industry though, newer types have become more popular.

Rotary Die Machines

Rotary die devices use a cylindrical anvil. The die is made from one tool steel piece. When the material is passed through the mechanism, a rapid series of precise cuts alters the metal. This process is most suitable for large volume projects. Also, it is good for "kiss cutting", where the material has to be punctured without damaging the fabrication liner.

For large volume production, a rotary cutting machine can boost productivity, whilst minimizing material waste. These machines are designed for precise cuts at a low tolerance. They can be used alongside other procedures, like coating and laminating etc.

Press Cutters

Press die machine cutters can be anything from small personal appliances, to big machine shop prototypes. Generally, they use a cutting die, which is lowered and raised on the forming metal (that a flat table supports). The cutting action of the die can be governed by hydraulic, electric, manual or pressurized sources. Based on the machine, the die might cut and create one piece of material. Alternatively, the material might be stacked to create multiple copies simultaneously.

Flatbed Die Mechanisms

Flatbed cutters stamp shapes with steel rule dies at different levels of hydraulic pressure. These mechanisms are good at making precise butt cuts, die cuts and kiss cuts to laminates and sheets. The advantages of a flatbed cutter include reduced tooling expenses, extra tolerance for materials above 1/8in thickness, and good design versatility. Flatbed cutters are economical for lower volume projects. Also, they are good for orders involving numerous laser cutters or shapes, where material curvature is not required at all.

Laser Die Machine

A laser cutter applies a fully focused, non thermal beam to bend metal into customized sizes and shapes. Usually, the laser is controlled via computer and adheres to a predetermined CAD created design. This facilitates the manufacture of uniform parts in large volumes.

A laser mechanism is useful for projects that need speed and accuracy. Also, it is handy for producing fast prototypes and bending stronger materials, which would be unusable otherwise. It boasts quick turnaround times, and is very suitable for high volume/short run production.

Water Jet Die Cutter

A water jet cutter fires pressurized water streams, which are able to move nearly 2.5 times faster than the speed of sound. These streams are launched via a miniscule opening (normally about 0.003in in diameter). However, it can slice through a broad range of materials.

These cutters are reasonably adaptable and allow for a very precise cold cutting procedure. As they use non dulling cutters, maintenance expenses are minimized. Furthermore, they produce very little in the way of hazardous waste. Hence, overall, these machines are a very convenient option.

Die cutting machines can be used to mold, shape and customize metals according to preference or specifications, with high speed and precision. With newer varieties coming into picture, it is becoming important to make an informed decision and get a good return from your investment, click here for help in your decision making.
