Wink receives BOBST certification as "Certified Die-Maker“

Successful participation in the certification program

Wink Stanzwerkzeuge GmbH & Co KG has successfully completed the BOBST program as "Certified Die-Maker". The certificate documents efficient processes, the highest quality standards and future-oriented technology development in the field of flatbed die-cutting.

BOBST is the global market leader for die-cutting machines in the packaging industry and has created the certification program for tooling manufacturers to enable optimum interaction between the machine and the die-cutting tool. The aim is to fully exploit the production potential of the die-cutting machines through maximum operating speeds and minimized set-up times, in order to guarantee highest efficiency for our mutual customers.

In an extensive performance test at the BOBST competence centre in Meerbusch, the Wink cutting dies were able to fully convince. The demanding specifications were successfully implemented, so that even under full load at maximum operating speed the folding boxes were perfectly cut, stripped and separated. Prior to this, Wink had already successfully completed an extensive audit, in which BOBST experts examined the entire production process.

The machine manufacturer describes its certification as a "guarantee of excellence": Converters can be sure that Wink dies meet the highest quality and performance standards. At the same time, the certificate is proof that Wink, as a diemaker, shares the progressive and innovative mindset of BOBST and its joint customers, also with regard to digitalization and automation.

"We are proud of this award and look forward to intensifying our cooperation with BOBST. We would like to thank all our colleagues who put our 'You cut, we care' philosophy into practice every day and contributed to the successful certification," comments Wink Managing Director Alan de Natris.
