Die Cutting - Platen

Die Cutting – Platen


To begin, Die cutting is the process of cutting paper in a specific shape or design. A wooden die or block is used, with steel rules positioned in the desired pattern. A die is a specialised tool used in manufacturing to cut or shape a material. It is then fitted into a press.

Additionally, die cutting is a mass fabrication method. It uses a tool called a die to cut paper into specific shapes. The die has sharp edges to pierce the material. It contains the custom two-dimensional shape of the finished part. Furthermore, the die cutting process is similar to cutting dough with a cookie cutter, where smaller sizes are cut.
