Flash Cutting

Flash Cutting is used when a project requires a dieless system. XTO’s Flash Cutting process utilizes a CNC machine to hold and cut precision material from .001 of an inch up to ¾ of an inch thick. The Flash Cutting process provides more customization options and faster production turn-around times. XTO’s Flash Cutting process allows you to easily produce prototypes from CAD drawings, shaping your unique product in a matter of minutes.

Flash Cutting applications are numerous, and can be used with a number of materials. Flash Cutting is perfect for projects where aesthetics are important, as the process doesn’t cause concavity and produces clean edges. Flash Cutting provides efficient use of materials as well as extraordinary precision and yield.

Flash Cutting vs. Kiss Cutting

Flash Cutting is suitable for projects that require rapid prototyping and aesthetically perfect parts. Kiss Cutting is suitable for projects in which a single layer needs to be cut to a specific depth.

Both processes can be customized to meet your project’s unique needs and our team of experienced technical engineers are always on-hand to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have about your order.

Flash Cutting vs. Die Cutting

Die Cutting allows you to cut a number of different materials into shapes and designs leaving an extended liner whereas Flash Cutting uses a machine that holds a blade in place while accurately and cleanly cut through the production material with exact measurements. Contact us today to learn more.
