The Advantages of Large Format Die Cut Parts

| 1

Some assemblies require die cut parts that are much larger than what is typically associated with tapes, gaskets, and other similar products. Examples include gaskets and seals for metal building panels, seals for truck trailer applications, POP displays, curtain wall gaskets, heat shielding, and other automotive applications. Tom Brown, Inc. has the capability to provide these large format parts in the right size, at the right time, and at a cost effective price point. Supporting the die cutting capabilities is a large format laminator that allows multilayer laminates to be created that have the right combination of properties to meet the technical requirements of the application. Prototype parts can also be offered without incurring cost associated with metal dies.

Advantages of Large Format Parts

Large format parts reduce the number of smaller parts needed to produce an assembly. This often saves time in the assembly process and reduces the number of SKUs in inventory. Larger parts forgo the need for seaming together numerous smaller parts. This is critical especially when the seam itself might be a weak point in the assembly. This is especially critical for gaskets in building and construction applications as well as heat shielding for transportation.
