Die cutters and die cutting machines
Die cutters and die cutting machines convert web or sheet materials into shapes. They are used to process woven cloth, non-woven textiles, and rubber sheets. There are two basic types of die cutters and die cutting machines: clicker presses and rotary die cutters. Clicker presses are used in the manual conversion of web materials and include switches, pendants, and pushbutton controls. Clicker presses typically consist of a wide table or plate with a smaller swing-arm head. Traveling head and full head machines are used for more demanding applications. Rotary die cutters or roller press die cutters are used in the high-speed conversion of web and sheet materials. These machines press roller-shaped cutting dies against a web. As the roller dies rotates, web materials are inserted and then converted into shapes. Both clicker presses and rotary die cutters are used in laboratory applications such as process parameter studies, material development, and sample preparation.

Important specifications for die cutters and die cutting machines:
Capacity or operating force:
The capacity or operating force is the maximum pressure that the slide or ram can exert at the bottom of the stroke. In mechanical presses, capacity measures the main shaft�s ability to Bend.
Daylight or open
Maximum sheet length or working length:
Maximum sheet width or working depth:
Several types of equipment are used for die cutting. There
are three basic types of cutting equipment. The first is a small swing arm
�clicker� press that is ideal for embroidery shops. The second is a large
�traveling head� press, which is used for multiple cutting and roll cutting.
�Full head� press is the third type, and it is used for heavy-duty jobs.
Additionally, �up-acting� hydraulic platen presses are available for special
applications such as cutting jigsaw puzzles, circuit boards and
screen-printed material. Automatic die cutting equipment is excellent for
cutting large-formats such as paper, labels, coupon books and plastic
Other types of die cutting equipment includes clicker punch
presses, both automatic and manual roll feed and beam presses.
