Wink will present its full range of premium die-cutting solutions at Labelexpo Europe 2019. In addition to various SuperCut flexible dies and rotary cylinders, the main highlight at the Wink stand will be the enhanced line of SmartGap® adjustable anvils.

The SmartGap® adjustable anvil allows adapting the cutting depth very precisely to different liner thicknesses, so that even with demanding applications and very thin liners optimum die-cutting results are achieved.

Wink has further optimized and extended the SmartGap® system and will show all versions in live demos at the show.

The new SmartGap® Advance has been developed as the basic version of the system. Thanks to high-precision eccentric technology, smallest adjustment steps are possible, while maintaining the unique stability of the SmartGap® system even at high speeds.

The Advance can easily be upgraded to the digital SmartGap® "Touch", which is nominated for this year's Label Industry Global Awards. Thanks to intuitive operation, maximum precision and many smart features, the "Touch" ensures greatest die-cutting efficiency.

Wink will also launch the new SmartGap® AutoControl feature. The extension of the Touch version marks the next ground-breaking step towards automation. A sensor bar continuously monitors the die-cutting result in order to automatically adjust the die-cutting depth if necessary. This ensures maximum process stability by significantly reducing makeready times, downtimes and waste.

In addition, Wink will present various SuperCut flexible die versions and surface treatments for a wide range of label applications, and a concept for new lightweight magnetic cylinders saving up to 80% of weight.
