Die cut products and die cutting materials were hot topics with readers of the JBC Technologies Blog in 2017. The old year is behind us, but it’s not too late to learn from its most popular die cutting content. Here are the top five topics about die cut products and die cutting materials in order of views. What would you like to learn about in 2018?
Die cut gaskets that provide UL 94 flame resistance and EMI shielding meet flammability requirements from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and resist electromagnetic interference (EMI). These die cut products also conduct electricity and provide environmental sealing. Applications include electric vehicles (EVs), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), ultraviolet (UV) curing equipment, and surveillance cameras.
PVC foam tapes seal out air, dust, moisture, and light. They also insulate against impact and vibration. To meet requirements for compression, conformability, and cushioning, these assembly tapes come in low, medium, and high densities. There are many types of PVC foam tapes, but JBC Technologies sources materials from a strategic network of suppliers. The roll slitting and die cutting services that we provide add value to your projects because they speed installation times and maximize material yields.
Die cut assembly materials like acrylic foam tapes (AFTs) and double-coated foam tapes provide important advantages over liquid glues and mechanical fasteners. In addition to saving you time and money, these die cut materials can meet demanding, application-specific requirements for fast, reliable fastening. For the automotive, appliance, specialty vehicle, and other industries, die cut assembly materials are solutions that stick because they add value to product designs and production operations.
Die cut weather seals protect interior components from water, light, dust, dirt, and other contaminants. They are used with automotive head lights and tail lights, furnace doors, HVAC access panels, cover plates, and lenses for LED lighting. To support cost-effective manufacturing, these die cut products are fabricated from sheet or roll materials and can attach to the substrate with metal fasteners or adhesives.
