DIE CUTTING SERVICES
For more than 35 years, Thrust Industries has been providing precision die cutting services to a broad range of industries throughout the U.S. and across the globe. We serve our customers with a complete selection of die cutting equipment, capable of meeting every die cutting need. Our die cutting services begin with an equipment list that includes high speed and clam shell equipment, as well as power punch presses to efficiently process a variety of substrates. We also have the capability to laminate adhesives. Our focus is on die cutting non-metallic materials, although we are capable of performing die cutting services involving thin copper and aluminum.
The type of equipment we use for our various die cutting services depends on volume and the material substrate to be die cut. For material that requires heating before use, such as polycarbonate, all of our presses equipped with heat capabilities. The die cutting processes we employ also vary depending on the material type and the needs of the customer. Some customers desire lamination of a die cut PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive). Thrust Industries can provide die cutting services to meet these needs.
Kiss Cut Services
A key strength that Thrust Industries offers is the ability to kiss cut adhesive parts to a liner. Kiss cutting is the process in which a cut is made though every layer, except the bottom lining layer, which remains intact. This allows adhesive back parts to be removed from the backing liners more easily. This is especially beneficial in assembly line applications, where productivity can be greatly increased.
CO2 Laser Cutting
Thrust Industries can CO2 laser cut or engrave a variety of substances including most plastics (excluding vinyl), wood, paper or foam and pressure sensitive adhesives laminated to a substrate. The CO2 laser cutting involves using a beam of light to cut through the material, which results in cutting system that requires no direct contact with the material.
