Labelexpo Americas 2016

New SuperCut dies and rotary tooling by Wink

At this year’s Labelexpo Americas in Chicago, Wink will once again present their full portfolio of premium die-cutting solutions and services. Highlights on Wink’s completely new stand 1529 include new SuperCut flexible dies, an improved GapControl® adjustable anvil, and ultra-precise magnetic and printing cylinders.

New SuperCut flexible dies

Die-cutting materials and applications become more and more challenging for label and packaging converters. Wink will show new SuperCut “Special” dies with specific adjustments of the blade geometry in combination with special coatings, e.g. for die-cutting of very demanding materials like MDO on thin PET liners. Other showcased tools include dies for booklets, security, multi-layer, in-mould and tire labels. Moreover, Wink will present large sized SuperCut “XXL” dies which are used in sheetfed offset or wider web, semi-rotary converting machines. The ultra-hard MCR coating significantly increases the tools’ durability, especially when die-cutting very abrasive (thermal) materials in long runs, while Wink’s optimized non-stick coatings “White” and “Grey“ offer maximum protection against adhesive and ink residues.

GapControl® adjustable anvil roller

At this year’s show, Wink will present an optimized version of the Wink GapControl® by RotoTechniX, which has been further improved in terms of handling and pressure control. The operator can adapt the gap (cylinder clearance) with greatest accuracy individually for the drive and operator side, so that all kinds of facestock and liner materials can be die-cut properly, while reducing downtimes due to web breaks or tool changes to a mini-mum. The GapControl® is very simple and flexible to operate and is convincing with its particularly stable construction. The system combines the stability of conventional anvil rollers with the flexibility of adjusta-ble systems, however, without any limitations in terms of speed, applications and maintenance that other adjustable systems have. For example, the GapControl® is well suited for cutting-through (metal-to-metal) and high-speed die-cutting.

Magnetic and printing cylinders

After the acquisition of the German cylinder specialist FST in 2014, the cylinder portfolios of both manufac-turers have been bundled and streamlined, so that customers now benefit from both companies’ best solutions. Wink will present the full range of high-precision magnetic and printing cylinders, which allow customers to get all rotary tooling from a single source.
