How do we choose a fabrication method for your custom converted product?
Controlling cost and quality gets to the heart of how we approach every job, and that guides our decision-making process.
With each new process we adopt, there’s a promise to our customers to leverage it to achieve the best possible value for our customers.
We have decades of experience fabricating adhesives and elastomeric materials. That means we know exactly how a given material will respond to each specific manufacturing process. So our production plan is designed around achieving the best fit and the highest quality the job demands.
We’re also committed to designing each run to minimize material waste through nesting and placement to capture the highest yields from every inch.
Finally, we factor in the fabrication method that best streamlines production time.

For fabricating gaskets and other custom shapes, flat-bed die cutting offers one of the most cost-effective fabrication methods. The steel rule dies are often less expensive than custom rotary dies. Because this method enables us to group and nest the cut shapes, this method is optimal for keeping material waste to a minimum. For smaller-volume jobs, flat bed’s rapid changeover process makes it an efficient method.
We offer rotary die cutting as a versatile and precise method for fulfilling large volumes of custom shape parts, particularly from thicker material. As the cylindrical die cuts shapes from soft materials, the vertical die cut maintains exceptional tension control to consistently produce uniform shapes, making it a cost-effective fabrication method for jobs requiring tight tolerances. The ability to control the depth of the cut makes this an efficient method for achieving kiss-cuts, extended liners, linear perforating, cross perforating and scoring for ease of assembly.
No expensive metal dies are needed here, which makes digital cutting ideally suited for small volume projects, short timelines and prototyping. Once we upload the final design into the operating system, production can begin. The software controlled operating system keeps material waste to a minimum through its nesting capabilities, while achieving the most intricate cuts with exceptional precision.
We cut jumbo rolls into your desired width, from 1/16″ to 60.” Sourced from master rolls of tape, foam, liner, adhesive or foil, or produced from custom laminated materials, our single blade cutting services can manufacture rolls tailored for your operation and machinery, from printing to light manufacturing.
At Evans EVCO, we pride ourselves on our core capabilities in fabrication and manufacturing. With our decades of experience and our focus on cost control and quality, we select the most suitable fabrication method for each custom converted product. Our deep product knowledge on pressure sensitive adhesives and elastomeric materials allows us to optimize production plans, minimize material waste and streamline production time.
Whether the best fabrication method calls for die cutting, slitting and rewinding or custom lamination, we have the knowledge and tools to deliver exceptional results.
