CFS offers both traditional steel rule die cutting and automatic flatbed die cutting services. Steel rule die cutting is based on a simple concept - a thin ribbon of steel is formed into the shape of a desired product. These "rules" are set into a rigid board generally made from wood or plastic. These dies are then pressed into the material substrate by a hydraulic press. Steel rule dies, when used in conjunction with an automated press, become flatbed die cutting.
