Custom Traditional Die Cutting

Elastomer Technologies, Inc. (ETI) has served our customers with custom traditional die cutting services for over 35 years. Traditional die cutting offers both high-speed efficiency and precision at a lower production cost and processes that develop fewer parts with less initial cost for tooling. With traditional die cutting, a custom die is created according to the exact dimensions and specifications requested from a drawing and tooling can sometimes be reverse engineered from sample parts.

Our expertise and facilities provide several advantages, including:

  • Equipment that can easily accommodate cutting requests for parts up to 24”.
  • Easy setup, multi-cavity tooling cycle efficiency, and lower tooling costs.
  • Among the best and fastest production lead times in the industry, which average between 4 and 7 days for first-article die-cut parts.
