Labelexpo Europe 2015

Wink succeeds with new die-cutting solutions

At this year’s Labelexpo Europe in Brussels, Wink once again presented their full portfolio of premium die-cutting solutions and “maximum care” services. Wink's management was more than satisfied with the overwhelming number of visitors on the extended and completely new stand 6C32.


With its extreme stability, the adjustable anvil roller Wink GapControl® by RotoTechniX has set a new benchmark in the market. Wink had live demos with die-cutting on a thin PET liner and other applications to show the GapControl® advantages under real conditions. The system is convincing with its particularly stable construction that even makes cutting-through (metal-to-metal) possible without any problems and results in extremely low-maintenance. 

Wink showcased new SuperCut Special flexible dies with specific adjustments of the blade geometry in combination with special coatings, e.g. for die-cutting of demanding materials like MDO on very thin PET liners. 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 glue and ink residues. Other showcased tool applications include booklets, security, multi-layer and tyre labels.

After the acquisition of the German cylinder specialist FST in 2014, the cylinder portfolios of both manufacturers have been bundled and streamlined, so that customers now benefit from both companies’ best solutions. Wink presented the full range of PowerCut® and AirTec solid dies for various narrow-web applications, e.g. folding cartons with embossing, jigsaw puzzles, automotive parts and plastic wrap-arounds. The “Pro” version of Wink’s PowerCut dies guarantees maximum tool life, thanks to a specially applied anti-abrasive coating. 

A big thank you to all visitors for so many interesting conversations!
