The Commercial Benefits of Die Cutting
In commercial printing, the benefits of die cutting come in the shape of lower cost per unit. Creating a metal die comes at an initial price to the customer but when the quantities start getting higher, the cost of the die all but vanishes. Each metal die produced can withstand as much as a million impressions before a new one needs to be made. Needless to say, the ROI on a set of rotary dies is quite incredible.
Cost is one thing but turn around time is another, time is money after all. Rotary die cutting can cut time on your production as it will move faster than a traditional die cutter. Other trimming capabilities, like our Zünd CNC machine for example, are great for shorter runs but higher quantity jobs are made for the rotary die cutter. Flexible rotary dies can contain details that are comparable to what we can produce on our Laser cutter, without the concern of burn marks. The die cutter also scores your job simultaneously, so there is no need for an additional step in production.
