Die Cut Flexible Materials: Part Tolerances and Hole Placement

Posted by Joe Bliss on May 4, 2016 8:31:42 AM

Engineers who design metal parts are familiar with manufacturing processes such as machining, spinning, and stamping. Similarly, engineers who specialize in rigid plastic components learn about design guidelines for plastic machining, injection molding, and thermoforming. Die cutting is a versatile and cost-effective parts production technique, but the design guidelines that apply to metal and rigid plastic parts aren’t identical to the ones for die cut flexible materials.
