What is DieCut?
DieCut consists of the rules of cutting and creasing as well as ejection rubber. The task of the cutting rule is to sharpen and cut accurately on the printed material. The function of the fold line rule is to create bending sections, but this must be done in such a way that there are no cracks or crevices in the product. The task of the scythe rule is to separate them from the empty space of the sheet after the scissors have helped to maintain the fixed position of the printed sheet during sharpening. The DieCut design can be added to the print later. for example; Prominent die cutters can be used in the cutting process to allow both techniques to be applied to the sheet in succession.
The common process of DieCut execution
The DieCut is inserted into sheets of various materials such as cardboard, plastic, foil-coated cardboard, congressional fiberboard, etc., from the printing press to the horizontal die-cutting machine, in which the desired designs are cut, perforated, or folded, or even die-cut sheets. They cut smaller.
Common designs for DieCut
Graphic designers and teams rely on precise DieCuts, which has a special effect on their print product or packaging. Some of the most common box designs and models used with die-casting include conical cartons with tongue-and-groove, envelopes, handle hangers, and more.
Accuracy in DieCuts
DieCut, whether it has a special and complex design or contains only the letters of the alphabet, requires great care to align all the cuts with the printing on the product, especially in the packaging of cartons and envelopes where the tabs need to be paired together for usable packaging. Be. The use of high quality laser cutting machines has made it possible to achieve such accuracy. Equipment that can provide a much higher level of accuracy with photo-eye recording. In general, die-cutting machines can cut to the nearest thirty-two inches.
Tazni and gluing in DieCut
Although thinning and gluing are two separate stages in the final product production process, die plays an important role in both stages. The dialogue session between the die-cutting, balancing and gluing parts of the printing company should take place before the production process in order to identify the best way to achieve coherence and conformity of quality and efficiency. In such negotiations, the standards and expectations of DieCut are determined so that in the subsequent processes, according to the desired design, the final product can be glued and glued.
