A guide to die-cut components

The world of design engineering and manufacturing is gradually changing. Cumbersome liquid adhesives are being substituted with pressure-sensitive adhesives. Bulky metal housings are being traded for flexible EMI shielding foils and fabrics. Very high bond (VHB) tapes are taking the place of classic O-rings. By replacing and improving these traditional practices, die-cut components are prompting us to address design challenges in a more effective and efficient manner.

If die-cut components spark your curiosity, we have the perfect thing for you. We have created a free guide that sheds light on some of the most widely employed die-cuts solutions. It walks you through the various areas where die-cuts components can enhance the functionality and longevity of your product including thermal management, EMI/RFI shielding, and vibration dampening. It also dives deeper into the unique advantages, characteristics, and properties of die-cut components, and equips you with few design considerations for your next product.

Faraday electric bike

Faraday Bicycles is a manufacturer of premium-quality electric bikes, or e-bikes. Located below the seat of each Faraday bike is an electronic component box that assists riders with pedaling. With these components being very important to the bike’s core functionality, Faraday needed to make sure the box was properly sealed and protected, which was where GM Nameplate (GMN) came in. The seal had to be waterproof so the bike could be rideable in various weather conditions, such as the rain. It also had to be strong enough so no one could access or tamper with the components inside the box. Finally, vibration had to be minimized within the box so the components wouldn’t be damaged. Therefore, with GMN’s extensive knowledge on adhesive materials and years of experience in producing die-cut components, Faraday asked GMN to help them find the optimal solution for their application.
