EPSI Masking uses a plotter and plotter software to create custom surface-protecting die cuts, without the cost of hard, rotary die tooling. Cutting dimensions and designs are programmed through the software and sent to the connected plotter, where the plotter blade cuts into material lying on its flat surface.

High-temperature, pressure-sensitive die cuts can be cut from a variety of materials, including high-temperature crepe, green or orange polyester, and Kapton, in 9- and 12-inch rolls. Larger die cuts can be made with 29-inch lane stock.

Turnaround time for many jobs is one business day, although larger size die cuts can require longer lead times for materials. The company says it can accommodate small-quantity sample runs up to thousands of pieces.
