The World of DieCutting

The World of DieCutting is the world’s most comprehensive guide to the die-cutting process

World of Die-cutting

With over 570 pages of information on flatbed, multi-contour and rotary die-cutting as well as associated tooling systems, the World of DieCutting by Bob Larson is the bible of the die-cutting industry.

Die-cutting takes place in almost every city in every nation worldwide. Few people recognize how die-cutting contributes to the manufacture of many products we use daily.

Footwear, packaging in super markets, folding cartons and corrugated boxes, gaskets in automobile engines, the dashboards of automobiles, labels on wine bottles, intimate apparel, puzzles, leather goods, apparel component parts, toys and games, corrugated point of purchase displays, flexible printed circuit boards and thousands of other products utilize die cut component parts. Even frozen fish sticks!

The World of DieCutting connects all the evolutionary dots of the many parts of the die-cutting process.
