Rotary die cutting is die cutting using a cylindrical die on a rotary press. A long sheet or web of material will be fed through the press in to an area known as a “station” which holds a rotary tool that will cut out shapes, make perforations or creases, or even cut the sheet or web into smaller parts. A series of gears will force the die to rotate at the same speed as the rest of the press, ensuring that any cuts the die makes line up with the printing on the material.

Rotary die cutting is also very accurate and can be combined with numerous color labels. Due to precise registration tight tolerances can be achieved and maintained.
