High Speed Die Cutting and Finishing

Finishing - Die Cutting


Shearing, also known as die cutting is a process which cuts stock without the formation of chips or the use of burning or melting. Strictly speaking, if the cutting blades are straight the process is called shearing; if the cutting blades are shaped then they are die cutting operations. Shearing-type operations include: punching, blanking, piercing, slitting, and trimming.


With our two Clam Shell Presses, our Guillotine Press, and our assortment of Sheers, Punch Presses, and Cornering Presses we can custom shape most of our stock substrates. This gives us the ability to offer a wider variety of finished products to our clientele without loosing control of the manufacturing process.
