Laser Die Cutting

die cut
Laser die cutting: steel rule die boards are cut with a laser for precision and accuracy. In addition to our die making services, we have numerous other finishing and bindery services available.

For example, we have the ability to laser cut highly intricate and detailed designs from paper with our PaperOne Laser Cutter.

We have a number of hot foil stamping machines, die cutting machines, and embossing/debossing machines for a number of finishing services. We also provide rapid prototype development in our packaging services for package testing, engineering and design.

Additionally, we have the ability to perform a number of other bindery services for the print industry, such as:

  • Perfect bound books: the characteristics of our perfect binding are printable spines, strength in the bind and a clean, elegant look. We have two large perfect binders (one with 21 pockets and one with 18 pockets) and one small hand-fed perfect binder for short-run jobs. Our automatic make-ready enables fast on-line, high productivity and quick delivery of finished goods. Our milling saw and three spine prep units on our large perfect binder provides excellent spine preparation resulting in good binding strength. We can glue with either conventional Hot Melt EVA glue or with Polyurethane Reactive (PUR) glue. We deliver consistent and reliable quality for small, mid-size and large-run jobs.
  • Our Lay-flat binding capabilities provides lay-open characteristics for those books that need to lay-open for easy reference, long use, or for high use such as cookbooks, manuals, reference books, agenda books, catalogues, etc.)
  • Mechanical binding allows the book to be opened fully to 360 degrees. We offer either plastic spiral coil with oval holes or wire-o® loops with rectangular holes. Both are available in a number of colors (standard colors include white, black, silver, pewter).
  • Stitching: we provide variety of stitching services (Saddle, Loop, Side and Corner stitching) and specialize in high-end stitching with cross-overs, lines-ups, tip-ons, and more.
  • Gluing: we provide remoistenable gluing, fugitive gluing, tipping-on, cold gluing services. For example, we can apply hot melt remoist glue; perforate the form; apply a line of cold glue which is used to ‘permanently seal’ the form; slit and/or fold, and even tip-on another piece using fugitive glue - all at the same time.
  • We have seven folders that provide a wide range of folding services: signature folding, map folding, accordion folding, roll folding, glue folding, gate folding, French folding, miniature folding and more. We are able to create custom folding and gluing solutions to meet our customers' needs for specific direct mail applications.
  • Cutting can be a major bottleneck in any post press operation however with the additional modular units that we have installed, we ensure an efficient flow of paper to and from the cutter and precision cutting can be done with excellent efficiency, accuracy and productivity.
