Dieless Knife Cutting

ICP has the capability to cut parts without a die. Our new dieless knife cutting table provides dieless knife cutting for a wide range of flexible materials. Cutting capabilities include multiple depth cutting, kiss-cutting, creasing, milling-routing, punching, engraving, and plotting.

The Benefits of Dieless Knife Cutting

  • Optimal material utilization with advanced yielding technology to maximize production efficiencies and control costs. The software provides for optimization of layouts and shape within shape cutting.
  • Rapid prototyping and samples
  • Faster turnaround time for customer parts and products
  • The knife cutting table can cut materials up to 1 inch in thickness
  • A high quality “Clean Edge” on manufactured parts
  • Patterns can be loaded directly from CAD programs to begin immediate production
  • No tooling required so there are no traditional tooling costs or waiting time for tooling

Rapid Part Prototyping and no tooling requirements help designers and engineers move quickly from design to production quantities to meet their “speed to market “objectives. Our die less knife cutting process can quickly turn out prototype parts for testing:

  • Customer design on a CAD file downloaded
  • ICP produces prototype or sample for immediate testing
  • Test prototype
  • Adjust and produce another prototype, if necessary
  • Customer approval
  • Begin production run

The Efficiencies and Reliability of the Proven ICP Quality Platform Saves Money for OEM Designers and Engineers

  • Reduces the time to bring a new product to market
  • Decreases the cost of new product development
  • Low reject history reduces your costs by decreasing the time required for quality inspections
  • Our on-time-delivery track record allows you to reduce the parts inventory you hold for final production runs
  • Our production process continually looks for ways to reduce your costs
