Flatbed die-cutting is a process used for the cutting, creasing, embossing, waste stripping, and blank separation of a range of sheet materials. Flatbed die-cutting can be applied to materials like light papers and carton board. The process is used in a wide variety of industries from packaging, label, and display manufacturing to commercial printing.
