Custom Rotary Die-Cutting Services

A specialized form of die-cutting, rotary die cutting uses a cylindrical die and a rotary press to cut complex designs with extremely close tolerances in high-volume production runs. The machine moves your material in a circular motion. At the same time, the blade cuts out the specified shape around the cylinder to create precision cuts, repeatable results, and high-quality final products.

Rotary Die-Cutting Capabilities

Your satisfaction is Rathbun’s top priority. Rotary die-cutting is ideal for producing a wide range of custom components, including, but not limited to:
  • Pressure-sensitive adhesives
  • Thin gaskets
  • Thin metal foils
Custom rotary die cutting is only limited by the material’s width and thickness, and it is well-suited to cutting any material .06” or less. Thicker materials will require a different converting service.

Rotary Die-Cutting Advantages & Processes

Unlike steel rule dies, rotary die-cutting blades do not move during the cutting process, creating consistent and repeatable impressions using single machined rotary tooling. Multiple rotary die stations can be incorporated in-line to laminate adhesives to substrates before reaching the cutting process. Rotary die cutting can also include kiss cutting, through cutting, scoring, and perforated cutting to meet the needs of your application.
While rotary die cutting can come with higher operational costs than other methods, the high-volume capacity, versatility, and efficiency of this process make up for the additional price.
