Dieless Knife Cutting

What’s your time worth? Feeling the crunch of bringing your product to market? Connect with Industrial Custom Products today and feel that weight lift off your back with flash cutting.


Coupled with our experts, our dieless knife cutting (also called flash cutting) will crush your speed-to-market objectives. Think fast when you think flash cutting. Flash cutting gets you the part you need now so you can bring it to market tomorrow.

Why Choose Dieless Knife Cutting?

Basically, choose dieless knife cutting and you’ll do less waiting and more prototyping.

Computers and robotics drive our two flash cutting tables, each of which can cut parts as large as 60” x 120”. Our robots—sometimes so fast and efficient it’s uncanny—maximize the utilization of whatever material they’re cutting so less goes to waste. And starting production is easy: our operator can load CAD programs and patterns to the flash cutting table and begin immediate production, right then and there.

What about tooling? Forget it when you decide on flash cutting. No tooling is required, so don’t worry about the traditional time and cost of tooling. (Some traditions are worth dropping!)

Choose dieless knife cutting and you’ll get fast prototyping, fast parts and products turnaround, and a fast breach into whatever market you’re targeting. Think fast when you think flash cutting.

Rapid Part Prototyping

Flash cutting allows our prototyping process to be extremely quick and meet your speed-to-market objective.

Here’s how Industrial Custom Products does it:

  1. We download your part design.
  2. We produce a prototype or sample for immediate testing.
  3. The prototype is tested. If necessary, we adjust and produce another.
  4. You review our work and give approval.
  5. We begin the production run.
