Rotary Die Cutting of Electronic Parts

Robert McKeown is a leading provider of custom die cutting services specializing in standard and custom electronic component assembly parts. We utilize advanced techniques, high-tech die cutting machines, and die cut tooling to produce the electronic component assembly parts and components based on your project’s requirements.

What is Rotary Die Cutting?

Rotary die cutting is a simple manufacturing process that can effectively cut shapes from a material. The die cut used is cylindrical, and it moves in a circular motion while its blades cut out the desired shape or pattern around the entirety of the cylinder.

Some advantages of rotary die cutting include:

  • Durability: Die cutting is a straightforward process that minimizes wear and tear in the components.
  • Ease of cutting: Rotary die cutting can cut through almost any material.
  • Multipurpose: The die cutting machines can handle several tasks depending on the project’s requirements.
  • Less waste: Die cutting produces minimal waste, so it’s economical and sustainable.
  • Faster turnaround: The efficient process of die cutting allows operators to accomplish quicker turnaround rates.

One of the biggest advantages of using rotary die cutting is the high volume of projects that can be completed quickly. When your project is on a tight deadline, you don’t want to risk having delivery of parts fall behind schedule due to a lag in your supply chain.


Electronic Parts and Components Produced Through Custom Die Cutting

Since rotary die cutting is effective in cutting metal parts, it’s one of the most used processes that produces electronic parts efficiently. The most common materials used for die cutting electronic components include nickel, copper, silver, and aluminum due to their excellent malleability and conductivity.

Common electronic parts and components achieved through custom die cutting are as follows:

  • Transducers
  • Capacitors
  • Printed circuit boards (PCBs)
  • Connectors
  • EMI/RFI shielding materials
  • Insulators
  • Protective films

Regardless of your project’s complex specifications and prerequisites, our team at Robert McKeown can achieve precise outcomes consistently to prevent failures and errors in the assembly process. We follow stringent quality control systems to streamline our manufacturing process. With accurate results and quality products, rest assured your projects will achieve success.

Our Other Cutting Capabilities


Slitting is another method used to cut large rolls of materials into smaller, more manageable sizes. Slitting can be done in line with other processes or as a standalone operation. Our slitters are equipped with razor-sharp blades that produce clean and uniform cuts for consistent results. Slitting is ideal for materials such as paper, film, foil, and adhesive tapes.


X-Y cutting is a versatile method used to cut materials into complex shapes with high precision. This technique uses a computer-controlled knife or laser to cut out patterns, perforations, and other intricate designs. X-Y cutting is commonly used for producing prototypes, short production runs, and custom-made parts.


At Robert McKeown, we also offer preco-cutting services using a high-powered laser to cut through various materials such as plastics, textiles, and thin metals. The intense laser beam melts and vaporizes the material along the cutting path, producing clean and precise edges. Preco-cutting is ideal for projects that require intricate and delicate designs.
