Did you know that Rochester Magnet not only can provide and convert flexible magnet rolls, sheets, and strip, but also provides die cut flexible magnets? These range from simple shapes to specialized rings for switch activation in pneumatic applications. Does your die cut part require adhesive? We can do that too.

There are a few things to consider when providing specs for your die cut magnets:


There are a variety of die cutting techniques available. Rochester Magnet will work with you to determine the best method based on the design of your part and the application. Simpler and thinner parts are typically cut with a steel rule or punch die. We can provide both through cutting and kiss cutting, dependingAdhesives on the requirements and specifications of the part. More complex or thicker parts may require water jetting to yield the best results.


Generally, the tolerances that apply to die cutting rigid materials, like metal or rigid plastic, don’t apply to flexible materials. Flexible magnet “gives” slightly during the manufacturing process, requiring slightly looser tolerances. We recommend +/- .005” minimum when designing your die cut part.


While we make every effort to manufacture to your specs, flexible magnet, like most materials, will expand and contract with changes in temperature. This is known as the coefficient of thermal expansion and will be more noticeable on larger parts. We recommend consulting with our experts if you have questions about your  part and application so we can get you the right part the first time.


Although often referred to as “rubber magnet”, flexible magnets do not stretch like rubber. Thin walls, narrow and intricate designs can be delicate and may require careful handling. If you’re concerned about the durability of your design, contact us to troubleshoot it with you.

With the holidays and gift giving season on the horizon, we wanted to take a moment to discuss the topic of magnet safety. Magnets and their amazing magnetic properties are fascinating to children and adults alike. This is the reason they are a popular choice among toy manufacturers and have been incorporated into many children’s toys as well as many other common household items. There are valuable skills and knowledge that can be acquired by children through the ability of being able to construct different three dimensional shapes and objects out of magnets. However, parents must be aware that magnets are extremely powerful and can have very damaging or even fatal consequences if not used properly.
