What is a die cutting machine?
New to card making or papercraft and asking yourself how to use a die cutting machine? In this article, we explain what a die-cut machine is and how to make the most of yours.A die cutting machine is used to cut different shapes of card or paper using a die.The die-cutting machine uses a combination of rollers and cutting plates to put pressure on a die and push it through the card or paper to create a shape with neat and precise outlines – this shape is called a die-cut. The way the cutting plates are put together depends on the different machine you are using, but you will always get guidelines on this from the machine's manufacturers. The cutting plates, combined with the paper you want to cut and the die you want to use is called the sandwich. If you see guidelines for the sandwich to use with your machine, it is nothing to do with lunch – these are the instructions for how to use your machine to cut dies. To make the most of your die cutting machine's main function, you will need to build up a set of dies for the different shapes you want to cut with your die-cutting machine. Modern dies are usually thin metal shapes, with a raised outline on one side. This is the cutting edge of the die, but it is not especially sharp - so you don't need to worry about damaging your die-cut machine.Some dies come grouped together, with a small strip of metal between the individual shapes. You can separate out the dies by snipping through the thin metal strips with wire cutters or kitchen scissors before using in your die-cut machine.
Comparison of Advantages of Paper Cutting Machine And Paper Rewinding Machine
The paper cup cutting machine cuts the whole roll quickly, increasing the speed by 3 times. Without considering the strength of the original paper, a roll can be cut quickly in 3-5 minutes. The traditional paper rewinding machine needs to rewind the paper, which is easy to break if it is not well controlled.The paper cutting machine reduces the loss of base paper, and the yield is over 99%. For base paper with a diameter of 1.25m-1.5m, the normal cutting loss per roll is only 10-15kg, but if the paper rewinding machine rewinds, the loss is about 50kg or even more if the technology is not good. Reduce the trimming loss of the paper rewinding machine, the whole roll can be used directly after quick cutting, the cutting surface is smooth and flat, and the accuracy is 1 mm. In traditional paper rewinding machine, it is difficult to avoid the phenomenon of uneven paper edges, wrinkles and tight edges in the middle of the paper. The fast cutting of the paper cutting machine will not increase the number of joints of the paper roll, and it will inevitably be broken when using the paper rewinding machine. The number of joints depends on the quality of the paper rewinding machine and the technical level of the operators.
