Hello, I am a new user and I am having trouble taking into account the manufacturing processes for my model. I am using ELCD database. Even though there exist material productions, I could not find any flows for processing the material, such as die cutting or any kind of material shaping..

Thank you!

Cutting or material processing would rather be processes (... you have an input which is being transformed into an output; so the cutting itself is the transformation). The ELCD database is very limited. You may be more lucky in finding the required processes in other database through which you can search via https://nexus.openlca.org/search. Alternatively, you may want to model these processes yourself.
