Stephens Gaskets take great pride in what we do, including our die cutting services. Since the 1940s we’ve been providing high quality services for individuals and businesses across the country. Over the years, we’ve expanded our repertoire to include many different skills, and we’re proud to be a forerunner in the business with a growing list of highly satisfied clients.
Decades of Experience
While we specialise in shims, washers and gaskets, we also offer first class services in cutting. Different products and machines require different types of cutting, and we offer a wide range of options, using state of the art machinery and decades of experience and expertise to make sure you receive the quality you need.
Ideal For Lower Strength Materials
Die cutting is one of the types of cutting service we provide. Die cutting is a process which dates back to the 19th century. It is used to shear flat webs of lower strength materials, ranging from paper to rubber, from leather to sheet metal. Over the years, as machinery has become more sophisticated, the possibilities available with die cutting have increased significantly, and today we’re able to cut in ways which would have been unimaginable when this technique first arose.
Dedicated to Excellence
Shapes are die cut using flat bed tools to ensure a precise and uniform shape. Internal and external shapes are possible thanks to our skilled workers and dedication to excellence. Here at Stephens Gaskets, we are happy to provide excellent die cutting services for you or your business, and can ensure the consistency and precision you require for all of your needs.
But why choose die cutting?
Die cutting is the perfect choice for those looking for regular re-orders of shapes which will not change, and need to be exactly the same each time. We recommend this service for those looking for a long run, with repeated orders, where exacting precision is required.
For Products Needing a Pristine Surface
It is also recommended for products which need to be pristine on the surface, without any sign of laser burn. Die cutting is best for those products which do not require a great deal of intricacy – the minimum space between cuts is usually something around three millimetres, and if you’re looking for something more intricate, we’d recommend looking into laser cutting as an alternative.
