Common Applications

Tape Innovations Zund CNC Knife Cutter is ideal for wide, flatbed cutting of stock. It allows us to offer a high degree of precision and efficiency through the use of its vacuum bed hold down, and multi-blade tool exchanger.

Common uses for digital knife cutting include:

Custom Shapes

Because digital knife cutting is so precise and accurate, it allows us to create customized shapes for specialized applications, including die-cut shapes for masking.

Kiss Cutting

This technique allows us to cut through the adhesive layer of the substrate without cutting through the backing. If you need peel-off stickers or labels, this is the ideal way to do it.

Gaskets

Digital knife cutting is ideal for these necessary parts for many manufacturing applications because of its precise capability to create custom shapes and sizes.

Rapid Prototyping

We use digital knife cutting in many of the prototypes we produce.
