Basic Rotary Die

This rotary die is the basic type, all other rotary dies derive from this type. This die is manufactured by high precision CNC machine and is applied of heat treatment and special surface treatment. After these treatments, the die gets a higher hardness, a higher wear resistance and a longer life. The blade edge of this die can reach a precision of 0.02 mm and a minimum edge line gap of 0.3 mm.

This kind of rotary die can be widely used for die cutting adhesive electronics products, self-adhesive paper and container’s packing materials.

Every kind of rotary die here can be tailored to customer’s individual requirement.

    Correct cylinder dimension


    If rotary cylinders are sized insufficiently, there is danger of bending. This applies especially to systems with no bridge and non-supported anvil cylinders. As a consequence, the cutting in the middle of the web becomes too light. A rule of thumb for magnetic cylinders, cutting cylinders and anvil cylinders is:


    The circumference is at least as great as the maximum working width of the cylinder. That is:


    Width > Circumference (×)


    Width ≤ Circumference (√)


    Detailed information we need from you for your ordering our solid rotary dies


    As to material to be cut


    - Precise material designation

    - Type and thickness of the backing material (liner)

    - Information on through-cutting, kiss-cutting or piggy-back

    - Where necessary, send sample material by post


    As to cutting unit / cylinder


    - Designation of machine type

    - Cylinder circumference

    - Gap

    - Where relevant statement if adjustable anvil cylinder is available


    As to label dimensions


    - Label shape (rectangle, circle, ellipse, special shape)

    - Label layout (number lateral / longitudinal)

    - Label size

    - Corner radius

    - Web direction

    - Drawing with dimension, sketches and samples

    - Perforations (tie / cut) in mm or points

    - Where relevant cutting contours by file with indication of printing side


    For many applications in narrow web printing, solid rotary dies continue to be the first choice, e.g. for cutting very thick labels, cardboard packaging and non-woven fabrics. Our cutting cylinders are convincing and manufactured using the latest CNC technology and adapted precisely to your individual requirements. Our cutting cylinders are hardened on principle and can be repeatedly reworked and resharpened.

    - All common working widths and diameters possible, special sizes and shapes on request

    - Cutting lines: standard height 1.2 mm, maximum height depending on application

    - Multiple height per cylinder possible

    - Concentric precision ±3 µm
