  • Die Cutting Machines

    Die-cutting machines are fantastic craft tools, allowing you to cut out precise, intricate designs from a variety of materials - but which machine should you buy? Every crafter has their own preference - some enjoy crafting with technology, while others prefer working mostly by hand - it's completely up to what you feel comfortable using. So to further your understanding of the differences between manual, electronic and computerised die-cutting machines, here are their key benefits.

WHAT TYPE OF DIE CUTTING MACHINES ARE THERE?

Manual Die-Cutting Machines

Manual Die-Cutting Machines

Manual die-cutting machines mean more physical work for the user, however are usually the most affordable and are much easier to transport. These machines use a crank system - once you've inserted the 'die sandwich' into the mouth of the machine, you simply turn the handle repeatedly to feed it through the rollers, thus pressing the die into your material.

Electronic Die-Cutting Machine

Electronic Die-Cutting Machines

Electronic die-cutting machines cut down the amount of physical work for the user, however are usually slightly higher in price. They work in a similar way to manual machines, however instead of using a crank system, they work with a motor. Once you've put together your 'die sandwich, ' you simply insert it into the mouth of the machine and it'll pull it through automatically, putting pressure on the die to cut out the design.

Computerised Die-Cutting Machines

Computerised die-cutting machines are digital cutting systems that use either in-built machine software or a graphics program when connected to a computer - instead of a physical die.

They grant minimal physical work for the user, whilst providing speed, accuracy and greater design versatility. View more
