What You Will Learn
Next, we’ll dive into the major types of diecutting: platen: hard anvil diecutting, platen: soft anvil diecutting, cylinder-rotary hard anvil diecutting, cylinder-rotary soft anvil diecutting, rotary pressure cutting, and rotary crush cutting. Within these lessons we will cover the setup, processes, tools, and types of cutting required for each diecutting technology. We will then get into the converting process—covering cutting, creasing, scoring, perforating-serrated cutting, embossing, and debossing. We will conclude this course with an interactive lesson on the ‘sins’ of diecutting—key variable converting failure characteristics.
