Digital/Die Cutting – Fabrics

Digital/Die Cutting Fabrics for Your Designs

Fabric is a type of textile that is made by weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting or bonding fibers together for the production of other goods. Fabrics find many uses in the production of clothing, bags, carpeting, furnishing, towels, coverings, filtering, art, crop protection and more. Fabrics can be made from animal, plant, and synthetic fibers, each of which is valued for its unique properties and applications.

Die cutting started as a process of cutting leather for the footwear industry in the mid-1800s. Since then, die cutting has expanded to include all types of fabrics. Ward & Kennedy has been die cutting fabrics for manufacturing since 1928. We’ve cut fabrics for one-of-a-kind prototype designs and mass production.

The fabrics we die cut include:

Benefits of die cutting fabrics:

Die cutting fabrics for manufacturing offers several benefits, including:

  • Precision/Consistency: Die cutting allows for precise and consistent cuts in fabric materials. The use of specially designed dies ensures that each cut is accurate and uniform, resulting in high-quality finished products. 
  • Increased Efficiency: Die cutting is a highly efficient method of fabric manufacturing. It enables rapid and automated cutting processes, allowing for the production of a large number of fabric pieces in a short amount of time. 
  • Waste Reduction: Die cutting minimizes fabric waste by optimizing material usage. The dies are typically designed to maximize the placement of pattern pieces on the fabric, ensuring efficient use of the available material and reducing scrap. 
  • Versatility: Die cutting is suitable for a wide range of fabric types and thicknesses. Whether you're working with delicate fabrics like silk or heavyweight materials like leather, die cutting can handle the job effectively. 
  • Enhanced Product Quality: Die cutting provides clean and precise cuts that contribute to the overall quality of the final product. 
  • Automation and Speed: Die cutting can be integrated into automated manufacturing processes, allowing for high-speed and continuous production. Automated die cutting machines can quickly and accurately cut fabric pieces, significantly reducing production time and meeting tight deadlines. 
  • Scalability: Die cutting is easily scalable, making it suitable for both small-scale and large-scale production. Whether you need a few fabric pieces or thousands, die cutting can efficiently handle the volume.
