Crafting Intricate Parts: How Rotary Cutting is Like Seven Layer Dip
Although the finished product will not be edible, rotary cutting can stack a variety of “ingredients” and make them as palatable to a manufacturer as the best multi-layer dip is to a party guest.
Typically used for high-speed, high volume projects that require anywhere from two to seven substrates to be joined to form a part, Gasket Engineering’s advanced rotary cutting capabilities have the ability to process multiple substrates in one harmonious pass. This type of process makes a nice, clean homogenous part out of multiple materials.
But it's much more complicated and intricate than just laminating seven layers together. Sequencing is just as important. You need to sequence properly in order to remove and introduce liners, use different adhesives on different sides of the materials and stack different materials on top of each other.
