Flatbed Cutting Services from CFS

Flatbed die cutting is a specialized type of steel rule die cutting. CFS uses a Preco hydraulic automatic press with steel rule dies to perform automated flatbed die cutting services. This process adds high speed capacity for parts that are too large to run on a rotary press or for higher volumes than are economical for steel rule punching or our digital/dieless knife cutting machines. Flatbed die presses allow for very high precision cuts on materials over 1/8” thick – especially when paired with matched metal (male/female) dies.

A variety of materials can be converted using flatbed die-cutting services. Examples of materials that we can convert include industrial adhesive tapes, silicone rubbers and sponge, EPDM, RN-8011, fish paper, Nomex, chipboard, VHB tapes, cork and cork/rubber, Poron and plastics. Products manufactured by CFS using flatbed die cutting include thermal pads for housing gaskets, LED lighting, flywheel masking and vibration control spacers.
