Flexible dies for sheet-fed printing

Whether sticker sheets, presentation folders or inmould labels: our flexible dies can be used in almost all machines for any print format - simply, quickly and with maximum precision. The innovative technology ensures efficient inline production for kiss-cutting, through-cutting, perforating and creasing.

Flexible dies sheet-fed offset

Sheet-fed offset

For inline die-cutting in sheet-fed offset presses, the flexible die is mounted in a free printing or coating unit instead of the blanket. The clamping system can be either quick clamping rails, adapter rails or a grooved gripper edge (for clamping in conventional rails). The impression cylinder is protected with a special protector plate. Our plates are successfully used in the sheet-fed offset machines of all well-known manufacturers, e.g:

  • Heidelberg
  • Koenig & Bauer
  • Manroland
  • Komori
  • Ryobi
  • Sakurai

Inmould-Labels (IML)

Rotary die-cutting of inmould labels allows higher process speeds and many other advantages - inline and offline. In new applications, even the smallest circular elements (injection holes) can be accurately die-cut and vacuumed. With minimal production tolerances and special cutting line geometries, the high-precision die-cutting tools from Wink offer optimum conditions for die-cutting inmould labels with maximum efficiency. Typical machines on which our flexible dies are used worldwide are the Koenig & Bauer RDC 106 and the Heidelberg XL 105/106 (DD). A problem-free integration of our tools is also possible for other sheet-fed offset or die-cutting machines.

Finishing machines such as those offered by Bograma, Horizon or Rollem are often used for shorter runs in the digital printing sector. With little effort, these die-cutting systems can process a wide variety of printed materials, e.g. inserts, presentation folders, folding boxes, business cards, labels and products in the pharmaceutical/cosmetics sector. The die-cutting and perforating applications can be combined on one flexible die. For additional creasing applications a pair of tools is used. Due to the easy application with highest register accuracy, set-up times are considerably shorter and production costs are optimized.
