5 things to know about Die Cutting

5 things to know about Die Cutting

 

Capabilities and Fabrication of Technicon Acoustics

 

More cutting methods are available now than ever before. In the early days, Friction Sawing used to be the “go-to” material cutting option. Now, there are literally dozens of choices. In this blog, we’re going to focus on Die Cutting and determine if it’s right for you.

What is Die Cutting?

According to Wikipedia, Die Cutting is “the general process of using a die to shear webs of low-strength materials, such as rubber, fiber, foil, cloth, paper, corrugated fiberboard, paperboard, plastics, pressure-sensitive adhesive taps, foam and sheet metal”.  Die cutting provides versatility in fabrication and allows us to make custom parts, like gaskets across a variety of applications and are perfect for providing high volume precision cutting.

 

 

1.) Benefits of Flatbed Die Cutting

First, there’s Rotary Die Cutting and Flatbed die cutting. Flatbed Die Cutting is the process of cutting or perforating the desired shape our of material using a hydraulic press. Flatbed cutting reduces overall cost and used generally for large production runs, higher cutting efficiency, high part consistency. The Flatbed cutting process allows quick change over times from one part to another which increases overall efficiency.

 

2.) Common Applications

  • Acoustical Insulation
  • Appliances
  • Compressors
  • Generators
  • Heavy Equipment
  • Marine
  • Medical Equipment
  • Power Tools
  • Tractor
  • Truck Body and Cab

3.) Die Cutting is perfect for custom kits

 

 

Die Cutting allows customed engineered designs to be cut into one large piece with perforated cuts, with each individual part separately labeled. This allows for quicker receiving and an overall simplified inventory process. Kitting makes assembly workers more efficient and increases output helping you reduce labor costs.

Worried about Quality and re-work? At Technicon, for the previous 12 months, our quality performance was 99.98%. See the  //www.techniconacoustics.com/company-about-us/the-perfect-order/

4.) Puts the “Lean” in Lean Manufacturing

Die Cutting reduces Material wastes and costs, time set up, loss and decreases parts. The more parts the less the efficiency.

  1. Saves on Storage Space
  2. Just In time delivery- get what you need exactly when you need it
  3. Get custom packaging

 

5.) Die Cut Gaskets

Are reliable, customizable, and cost-effective. Die cut gaskets can be produced on rotary or flatbed equipment that helps reduce overall cost. At Technicon, we have a multiple point checklist in the production process. Pre- Production Planning or (PPP) can cut costs to make sure that everything is examined and in order from the time of the RFQ to purchasing and packaging. Die cutting allows us to give you design flexibility, low set up cost and supply chain flexibility.

Our Favorite TED Talks about Sound and Noise

Harnessing the power of sound

Humans are wired for sound. Steve Keller, one of the world’s leading experts in the field of audio branding, explores how brands are harnessing the power of sound and music to shape our perception and influence our behavior, ultimately asking the question: How can we use these same strategies and
tactics to make our world a better place?

The 4 ways sound affects us

Playing sound effects both pleasant and awful, Julian Treasure shows how sound affects us in four significant ways. Listen carefully for a shocking fact about noisy open-plan offices.

 

Tinnitus Ringing of the Brain

In this talk, Josef Rauschecker illuminates the science behind tinnitus as well as the current state of treatment options.

 

SShhh! Sound Health In 8 Steps

Julian Treasure says our increasingly noisy world is gnawing away at our mental health — even costing lives. He lays out an 8-step plan to soften this sonic assault (starting with those cheap earbuds) and restore our relationship with sound.

 

 

 

Why Architects need to use their ears

Because of poor acoustics, students in classrooms miss 50 percent of what their teachers say and patients in hospitals have trouble sleeping because they continually feel stressed. Julian Treasure sounds a call to action for designers to pay attention to the “invisible architecture” of sound.
