National Rubber Corporation provides engineered solutions for your Flash Cutting.
Usually, when it comes to custom rubber parts, die cutting is the most common production method. National Rubber now offers the next generation alternative to die cutting, an ATOM Flash Cutter machine that eliminates the need for rule dies.
What is flash cutting? Flash cutting is a type of CNC machining where there are no tooling costs involved. Unlike traditional die cutting, flash cutting uses CNC equipment to hold the rubber in place and cut shapes and parts with material thicknesses up to 1.00 inches. Because there are no dies involved, flash cutting eliminates the need for tooling costs. What are some of the benefits of flash cutting?

- Minimal loss of material
- Extremely smooth edges
- Cutting capacity up to 60 X 120
- No dies needed for new business
