Steel Rule Dies

Quality through tradition

Decades of experience in the manufacture of steel rule dies and the use of advanced laser technology have transformed this traditional tool into an efficient piece of manufacturing equipment. The quality of our steel rule dies can be seen in their minimal tolerances, as well their excellent ability to cut all adhesive composite materials and seamless rule joints. Thanks to the specially adapted steel rule geometry, Wink has managed to keep the deformation of steel rules to a minimum in the corners. This guarantees a uniform cutting result and impression-free cutting, even when using the most difficult materials.

For extreme cases: The Wink LT-Rule®

Our LT-Rule® enables you to maximise the useful life of your steel rule dies. The special coating extends its life span 4-5 times, which makes it an economic phenomenon. The LT-Rule® is used mainly for abrasive materials (thermo materials, metallic foils, Tyvek, fluorescent paints).
