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 need. In addition to high speed clam shell equipment and power punch presses, Thrust can also employ CO2 Laser Cutting and high pressure Waterjet Cutting to efficiently process a variety of substrates. Our primary 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 are equipped with heat capabilities. The die cutting processes we employ also vary depending on the material type and the needs of the customer.
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.
