Precision Rotary Die Cutting Services

Pepin Manufacturing, Inc. utilizes state-of-the-art servo-driven rotary presses capable of producing custom disposables to customer specifications. We can achieve tolerances as low as +/- .004” on die-cut parts using our CCD vision technology. Over the past 26 years, we’ve helped solve many challenging projects, allowing us to produce one-of-a-kind products for our customers.

Precision Rotary Die Cutting Service — The Basics

What is Rotary Die Cutting?

Rotary die cutting is a form of die cutting that uses custom-made cylindrical dies and a rotary press to convert a wide array of material from rollstock to a finished device. Our skilled operators can feed one or multiple materials into a die-cutting station which features a cutting die cylinder and a hardened anvil cylinder. Next, the cutting die cylinder presses against the hardened anvil cylinder’s surface and cuts out a specific shape in the raw material in between. It is possible to create nearly any shape with this type of equipment, including specific die cuts, slits, or perforations. We can either produce a finished component or provide subassemblies to our customer in rolled form.

Versatile Solutions

We can provide small run functional prototyping utilizing our clicker press. With our rapid prototyping service, tooling lead time is reduced from weeks to days, allowing us to manufacture and ship functional prototypes within 5-7 business days. If you require medium to large production volume, our high-output precision rotary presses would be capable of meeting your production demands. Our customers include start-ups, Fortune 100 companies and everything in between.

Servo Driven Rotary Press Advantage

To achieve precision in rotary die cutting, it comes down to an advanced control system capable of accurate tension control and in-line registration. Servo-driven rotary presses allow for more precise cutting, resulting in the ability to produce more complex parts with tighter tolerances over traditional die-cutting machines. This type of equipment uses an advanced PLC mixed with servo motors to control the tension and speed of each station of the press, allowing to advance or slow down each station to allow for precision die cutting. With individual servo motors at each die-cutting station, the modules can be adjusted independently of one another, allowing for the die-cut to be changed quickly. This allows for precision cuts, even when the registration marks are inconsistent. Pepin’s closed-loop CCD vision system can provide real-time servo adjustments to further increase die-cutting tolerance to as low as +/- .004”.
