Laser die-cut

Laser die-cuts are utilized as an alternative to mechanical dies (flat or rotary dies and sheets) to define the contours of labels, tags and boxes.
They're dummy die-cuts which do not consist of physical shapes but they're made of digital tracings loaded into the machine during production.
Laser cutting is much slower than classic die-cutting. However, through laser die-cutting it’s possible to perform special contours that would make the use of expensive dies — when cutting shapes become difficult, the chance of die-cutting errors increases.
