Label Cutting

Several things set Marking Systems apart from the rest of the label printing industry.

Marking Systems is an expert in tight-tolerance steel rule die cutting ( + or -,010 ) for print to print, print to cut, and final dimensions.

Working only with the top die makers ensures we can handle your most demanding overlay and nameplate applications.

All registration is done by a camera to ensure accurate and consistent alignment. Each job will align 100% the same on your bezels ensuring your overlays, including LED's and display windows, have perfect fit, form, and function — every time.

We use multi-stage rule dies to ensure your overlays are never deformed during the cutting process. Multi-stage dies
eliminate the burning and scarring that can happen when the material is pinched between a rule that is too close together.

We are experts in cutting all kinds of materials like polycarbonate, polyester, vinyl, and plastics from .001 up to 125.

Marking Systems owns two of the most technologically advanced digital blade cutters for product labels in the USA. These cutting presses use camera registration and an advanced cutting blade to cut the most intricate polycarbonate overlays and nameplates in prototype and small run quantities.

They register and cut dimensions to + - .010 on polycarbonate materials up to .015 thick.

Unlike lasers, the blades cause no charring of the polycarbonate materials on light-colored backgrounds.
