For more than 30 years, the Wintriss Die Protection Clinic has been the metalforming industry’s premier source for die protection and in-die sensing information and training.

Using a down-to-earth approach, we cover every aspect of die protection and sensor selection for progressive, transfer, and compound dies. Whether you’re an experienced die protection user or have never installed a sensor, the clinic will provide you with the information that you need to improve your stamping operation and put an end to repetitive die crashes.

The Die Protection Clinic’s ultra-practical, application-oriented curriculum gives you the knowledge you need to start protecting your dies right away, even if you’ve never used sensors or die protection controls.

For experienced die protection users, the Clinic is constantly updated with new die protection applications and information on how to apply the latest sensor and control system technology.
