    Die cutting is basicly using CNC grinding machines to produce precision parts made out of metal, plastic, ect.
    For instance: A washer produced by stamping. Stamping the washer distorts it a little but it is good enough for its uses.
    If you wanted a more persision washer with no distortion and max uniforimity it would have to be die cut using high speed grinding bits or cut by using high pressure water, or laser.

    Porting heads and intake manifolds is also a form of Die cutting. You use a high speed Die grinder to remove material and polish them

    Depending on the type of shop, it could also be a 'rule'-bending type die cut.........like for a plastics company. They bend the 'rule' into whatever shape you want for you to cut out plastic, as in vacuum thermoforming, etc. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
