What Is Die Cut Cardboard Used For?

January 15, 2018 by in category News tagged as , , , , , with 0 and 91

Die cut cardboard machines are used to cut a number of identical shapes from different materials including cardboard, paper, metal, plastic or fabric. The ‘die’ is rather like an industrial cookie cutter – it is a cleverly designed stamp made up of blades that, when pressed firmly against a material, will punch out the desired shape. The flat shapes that are produced can go on to be decorated or printed upon, and are sometimes referred to as blanks. Die cut cardboard machines can be small and used in the home for crafts such as greeting card making, or they can be on a larger scale and used to manufacture high quantities of items used in all kinds of businesses. At Preston Board & Packaging Ltd, we use this cutting machinery to produce items such as box blanks, books covers and presentation boards. They are an effective way of making precise shapes from the die cut cardboard and paper board we manufacture.
