Die Cutting

M&C Specialties converts or die cuts non-adhesive materials & adhesive-coated materials to create engineered solutions for healthcare and commercial customers. As part of this die-cutting process, M&C does multi-lamination, printing, slitting, and spooling. This expertise from M&C Specialties is often called converting. Die cutting and converting are what M&C Specialties has been doing for over 60 years. Their innovative approach is what makes them a leading die-cutter or converter. M&C Specialties approach to die cutting solutions is to start with a concept, source materials, explore cost-effective designs, create a prototype, go through quality validation, and convert the part in full-scale manufacturing, then package and ship to clients’ requested destinations. This process follows M&C Specialties’ EPI (Early Partner Involvement) commitment to service. Customers benefit from die cutting solutions that meet or exceed quality and product expectations and that drive down the cost of manufacturing. Choose M&C Specialties for die cutting and converting expertise.
