Die Cutting is Quick and Cost Effective
Die cutting allows for companies to easily mass-produce products or parts. Although the processes of die cutting and injection molding are rather different, they both seek to complete a similar goal. The main differences between the two shaping processes are cost and speed. If you are in the market for a single, small batch of products, injection molding is more cost effective; however, if you plan on running the same part or product over and over again, your best bet, without a doubt, is die cutting.
The speed and ease of die cutting are partially dependent on the fact that die cutting machines can create a shape in a single punch. Industrial machines are able to cut multiple identical shapes simultaneously. Speedy cuts are also possible because of the automated abilities of machines. Being able to feed materials, cut/process materials, and finally stack them, greatly reduces turnaround time for projects.
Die cutting machines produce high quality, uniform products quickly, and they also boast a lower tooling cost than injection molding. The lowered tooling cost is significant, and it is one of the main reasons to choose die cutting over other forms of molding.
