What is rotary die cutting station?
A rotary cutting die station or machine is one of the basic types of die cutting stations. The machine has a cylindrical die that is attached to the rotary press. The rotary die contains the cutters specifically designed to produce the desired shape or cut on the material. Against it is a cylindrical anvil serving as the flat surface that counters the rotary die’s pressure on the material. In between these two rollers, the material such as cardboard, plastic or metal is fed.
