Flatbed Die Cutting

Flatbed Die Cutting

Tight Tolerances with Typically Low-Cost Tooling

Hi-Tech operates many types of flatbed die cutting presses, many in certified cleanrooms. Flatbed die cutting is performed in our Tijuana, MX facility – ideal for labor intense processes, providing US engineered quality at off-shore pricing.

  • Several Types of Tooling Available
    • Steel Rule
      • Low Cost / Quick Set-up / Ideal for Prototyping
    • Class A (matched metal) Extremely tight tolerances. Processes can be automated for high-speed throughput. Ideally suited to high volume microfluidics / diagnostic test strip production.
    • Metal Engraved
      • Extremely Tight Tolerance
    • Chemically Etched
      • Low Cost / Tight Tolerance / For thin Substrates Only
    • Compound (or hybrid)
      • Dies are created by combining steel rule components with matched metal components (common in metal stamping). The steel rule component is used to cut the less detailed part of the shape (the outer perimeter for example) and the matched metal components are used to cut the inner, more detailed shapes. REMOVE (Once tooled and assembled, the compound die is placed inside a press and will be used for long run, high output programs).
