Precision Cut Components / Die Cut

JN White® has decades of expertise in tight tolerance cutting delivering precision components in materials of all types. From die cutting, to flash cutting, laser and router, we can handle any of your critical cutting needs. Utilizing state-of-the art digital laser and computer-controlled precision blade cutting systems, there is no cutting job that we can’t handle.

die cut components, manufacturing precision die cut component partsOur state-of-the-art cutting processes feature an optical registration system that enables precision print-to-cut registration when producing printed graphic products, and perfect cut-to-tape alignment of a variety of components.

Examples of precision cut components:

If we have your material on-hand, we can get samples cut within just a few days, allowing you to quickly prove out form fit and function.

Types of Cutting

Die Cutting

Die Cutting, die cut componentThe most common cutting type, die cutting utilizes custom made steel rule or machined hard tool dies to cut through a variety of materials and thicknesses. Die cutting can be equating to a cookie cutter made in the shape of your part, and a large stamping machine stamps out your precision die cut parts with that cookie cutter. It is fast, efficient, precise, cost effective. Ideal for larger-run cutting.

Flash Cutting

Flash cutting is ideal for prototyping (short runs), or projects where flexibility and rapid or frequent changes may occur. The process is also ideal for fast-turnaround requirements. Flash cutting utilizes computer-controlled laser and precision Zund blade cutting machines that product extremely accurate dimensional cuts in a variety of materials.

Kiss Cutting

Kiss Cut, laser cut components

At Kiss cutting is a precision cutting process in which the cut is through the primary material, but doesn’t penetrate the adhesive or backing liner. This allows for a larger backing/liner that remains after the cut, which is easier to remove in the manufacturing process.

Cutting Equipment

Flat-Bed/Clam Shell Die Cutting

precision cutting systems, Flat Bed and Clam Shell Die Cutting,
Cut types: die cutting, kiss cutting
These tried-and-true machines are the backbone of any die cutting business. We rely on them for a significant amount of our precision cutting needs. They work like a high-tech cookie cutting, stamping our precise part shapes from a wide range of materials. They work fast, extremely efficiently, and are ideal for any large-run project.

Preco Automated Die Cutting

Preco Automated Die Cut Components
Cut types: die cutting, kiss cutting
Our Preco automated die cutters use video optical registration systems to assure that the finished “print to cut” allignment is right every time. The camera system locates targets that have been printed on the press sheets and adjusts the strike of the die to those targets. If the printing moves on the sheet so does the cutting. This process also allows us to purchase fewer cavities in a tool. With the camera registration system the press will “step through” the sheets with exacting precision. As an example It is very common for us to use a 5-up Preco tool for a 20 up printed sheet saving our customers money on their initial tooling charges.

Laser Digital Cutting Systems

Precision Digital Laser Cutting
Cut types: die cutting, flash cutting, kiss cutting
Our laser-cutting system is precise, cost effective and ideal for every aspect of polycarbonate and acrylic material manufacturing, from prototyping and short-run projects to full production of otherwise hard-tooled programs. Our multiple machines, at our 2 different manufacturing facilities, can cut with extreme precision on polycarbonate materials up to 1MM thick and acrylics as thick at 5MM.

Zund Precision Blade Digital Cutting Systems

Zund Precision Digital Blade Cutting
Cut types: die cutting, flash cutting, kiss cutting
Our Zund Digital Blade Cutting Systems excel at cutting a variety of materials, particularly in short-run projects. We typically recommend and use this method on kiss cut label jobs where the volume warrants digital cutting (no tooling) and the customer wants several parts delivered on a carrier sheet.

**Both of the above “digital” cutting processes allow us to provide prototypes with an extremely quick response time. If we have your material on hand, we can get samples cut allowing you to prove out form fit and function within just a few days.

"Very pleased with your team's response to our need during the COVID-19 crisis."
Lisa L., Medical Device
"JN White has been exceptional in working with our company in order to develop the look and feel of our new MRI patient worn transmitter. We had originally worked with a prior manufacturer for an earlier version of this product with much less desirable results. JN White delivered a clean professional product at a very reasonable price on time!"
Gary P., Medical
"We had very little information to work with and Jessica James made it nearly effortless on our end to get us exactly what we needed in a timely manner."
Lexi W., Industrial Equipment
"Getting any after-market graphic overlays done always has a certain risk factor in getting it all right. You guys were helpful, patient, & knowledgeable to achieve the best end result. Even pointing out some things that might be [an] oversight or [areas for] improvements. The outcome was perfect."
John S., Technology
"The print task was between the USA and Australia and everything went so smooth. I submitted a drawing, got a return email for me to confirm what I wanted. Even though this was over the Christmas period the print was waiting for me when I got back to work after the holidays. Great job and thanks."
Matt C., Military

Roger W., Education
"I feel confident that JN White will do my order correctly."
Marie P., Government
"I found working with Sara to be a pleasant experience. We were trying to dial in the color to get just the right look on the printed substrate...Sara sent us a sample print sheet that had several variations, up and down, from the colors we specified, which allowed me to pick exactly the color we wanted. The end result product is perfect!"
Don M., Safety
