At this year’s Labelexpo Europe, Wink (stand 6C32) will present its newest additions to its full portfolio of premium die-cutting solutions and services.
New product highlights from Wink include:
Wink has further improved and developed its adjustable anvil system – SmartGap. The SmartGap system is very simple and flexible to operate. The operator can adapt the gap (clearance) with greatest accuracy individually for the drive and operator side. 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.
At this year’s show, Wink will not only show the optimized basic version, SmartGap “Classic”, but also a “Touch” version with digital control and many smart features which further enhance production efficiency. The SmartGap will also be shown in live demos with die-cutting on ultra-thin liners.
Many label and packaging applications include some kind of perforation in a variety of designs. Quite often, these perforations are difficult to achieve with conventionally produced flexible dies. Wink will present a new type of perforating dies that overcomes these challenges. With patent pending laser technology, the perforation cuts and ties are produced with outstanding precision, which allows for perfect perforations and micro perforations.
Wink will also showcase new SuperCut flexible die versions with specific adjustments of the blade geometry, e.g. for demanding materials like MDO on very thin PET liners, booklet and in-mold labels. In addition, Wink will present typical label solutions that require special die treatments like laser hardening, MCR (MicroChrome) or “MC plus” coating for maximum durability.
Next to a full range of basic cylinders (magnetic, anvil, printing) and solid rotary dies (including waste removal solutions), Wink will display the updated “ForceControl” pressure monitoring system for monitoring and adjusting the cutting pressure, thus guaranteeing an effective and controlled process for all die-cutting tasks. The pressure gauges can be easily positioned immediately after changing jobs using the quick snap lock system. ForceControl pressure gauges come in three different versions, each of them adapted to specific machine configurations and applications.
