While most notably used for packaging, rotary dies can be used to cut parts for machinery, like automotive components, as well. But that’s not all. If you fall within certain markets (i.e. consumer goods, medical/pharmaceutical, automotive), you may be in need of some high quality rotary dies or other cutting solutions to optimize efficiency.
The next time you walk through the aisle at your grocery store or even Costco, take a look at the diverse array of packages. Any business that sells consumer goods (including agricultural) on a large scale needs to establish an efficient packaging and shipping system, regardless of the packaging material (though green packaging is in nowadays).Checkout rotary die cutting for more info.
Never underestimate the effect of packaging and labeling of a product. It can, quite literally, make or break your bottom line. Something that stands out and appeals to customers is what will sell. The question you must ask yourself is: What will differentiate your brand from another?
When people think about the automotive industry, they usually think of a grand assembly line, with cars being assembled piece by piece in stages. It really is an awesome thing to see, but have you ever wondered how cars can be made so uniformly, with relatively little variation (depending on the model and year)? It’s not just that they are made by assembly line.
Just as cutting solutions can produce uniform packaging, they can help produce the components used in, or out of, those assembly lines, whether it is converting a foam or rubber based gasket, a high-bond pressure sensitive adhesive, or a part used to avoid an NVH issue.
Yes, even in this field, you will find the product of rotary die cutting. In fact, there are a great number of medical applications that require such expertise. The sheer number of different product requirements alone seems unsolvable as there are innumerable types of products within the medical and pharmaceutical market. The uniformity of some medical tools require the use of die cutting technology. Quite frankly, variation in medical tools or other equipment can end up being a matter of life and death. It is something that needs to be taken most seriously.
Just think of the different types of packaging for cold medicine. How many different types can you think of? Does it make a difference if it is a plastic bottle or a paper/cardboard box? In fact, continual material innovations and increased design complexity bring unique challenges when die-cutting parts for medical applications. To be honest, it’s a challenge we relish.
