Let's jump right in.

Common Die Cutting Problems & How to Solve Them

Die cutting machines may look complicated when you just glance at them, but the bulk of the work that they do is simple. These machines rely on raw materials, a rolling platform, and a processing station where all of the folding and scoring for cuts happens. Still, this simple process can come to a standstill with even the most simple of problems. Let's look at the most common ones you will likely run into, no matter how careful you are.

1. A Cutting Die Failure.

When your cutting die breaks or gets damaged you are unfortunately not going to have a quick way to get back to work. In these situations, you will need the help of a certified professional in order to get your die cutting process back up and running. DIY solutions here can only make things worse. Unfortunately, outside of routine maintenance and general upkeep, there is no way to prevent this issue.

2. Inconsistent Cuts.

The goal of a die cutting machine is to give you an efficient way to mass-produce a symmetrical product. When your material comes out with inconsistent cuts, then you are really looking at a problem. Prevent this issue by making sure to keep your die sharpened to the proper standard. A dull die can really cause issues if you don't pay attention!

3. Worn Die.

Finally, one of the most consistent issues that your die cutting operation will run into is a worn out die. The die in your machine is typically dulled by repeated use or stress as well as inappropriate material. If you are using a material that is not properly graded for the strength of your machine, your entire die cutting operation will suffer.
