Precision Cutting Services
Pre-cut parts are an easy way to add bonding, masking, gasketing, or specialty pieces to your production process without the added time and rework costs that come with hand cutting parts during processing. Budnick offers numerous options for the precision cutting of nearly any material - from tape and foil to thick foam, plastic, and metal.
High Speed Plotter
The high speed, digital, table-top cutting system works great on a wide variety of both roll and sheet material for shorter production runs requiring tight tolerance kiss-cut, through-cut, or router cut parts.
Pairing laser technology with rotary press capabilities allows us to produce infinite parts in endless ways - enabling us to create unique parts and prototypes in a production setting with little or no tooling.
The CNC controlled ultra-high pressure water stream cuts almost any material to extremely tight tolerances. The elimination of tooling costs makes it ideal for when conventional methods are unavailable
Custom Parts Cut to Your Specifications
Today’s engineers need the design freedom to maximize space utilization while creating cost effective products. To succeed, they need both materials and fabricating processes to meet stringent tolerance requirements. The variety of Budnick’s precision cutting capabilities allows us to use the optimum cutting method for your part’s design and material composition often without the assistance of traditional dies and tools.
Unlike many of our competitors that are forced to “fit a square peg into a round hole,” we have the right process for almost all jobs. We are fabricating parts from materials that were once considered “unmachinable.”
When selecting the proper cutting method, you must consider the material composition, thickness, tolerances, quantities per run, finished part presentation, and many other factors.
Waterjet is a great solution for thicker foams and parts that require very intricate cuts while eliminating the thermal stress issues affecting some materials during the laser cutting process. For materials that are not thermally sensitive, our in-line laser cutting system is ideal for quickly produced intricate parts - and is perfect for presenting kitted rolls where multiple component designs are required on the same roll.
Because we retain experienced press operators and all precision cutting is done using ISO 9001:2015 certified quality processes, you can be sure that you will consistently receive high-quality parts that meet your design and tolerance demands.

Budnick prides itself on offering a wide range of services to our customers that open capabilities to more specialized materials. Here are some case studies on how our precision cutting techniques have helped our customers.
Case Study Improved Process
Production was in the process of moving from Arizona and Ohio and finding a supplier who could meet stocking and delivery requirements was critical.
- Needed tape stocked in a temperature controlled environment and delivered weekly
- Customer had issues with splices and roll tolerance standards not being met
- Budnick worked with vendors to negotiate competitive pricing and fix splicing issues
Case Study Mounting a Fuel Tank Emblem
A fuel tank manufacturer was spending excessive time hand cutting tape to the dimensions of their logo, only to see it fail to bond to the tank.
- Customer was using a film tape that was not a long-term emblem mounting solution
- Hand-cutting the tape was no longer a feasible option for the customer either
- Customer needed a tape that could withstand environmental elements
Case Study Enhanced Production
Lacking in production efficiency and healthy hands, this aerospace came to Budnick in search of solutions for a complex masking application.
- Workers were cutting tape by hand and often cutting themselves
- Tape was being cut for various sizes of metal parts to mask during shot peening
- After working with Budnick, the customer was able to double production
