By combining highly accurate registration with precise sheet control at each stage of the process, a flat bed die-cutter offers the ultimate in quality when cutting, creasing or embossing sheeted material.

Flat bed die-cutting is a process used for the cutting, creasing, embossing, waste stripping, and blank separation of a range of sheet materials, from light papers and carton board, The process is used in a wide variety of sectors from packaging, label, and display manufacture to commercial printing.

The primary difference between rotary die cutting and flatbed die cutting is that the flatbed is not as fast.  This process lends itself to smaller production runs where it is not as easy to absorb the added cost of a rotary die.
