Wintriss Die Protection Clinic
You can make die crashes a thing of the past...
Attend our famous Die Protection Clinic live or as an online webinar!
Our next Die Protection Clinic will be hosted by the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) at their headquarters in Cleveland, OH on March 21, 2024. This Clinic will be available both live and virtual.
If you'd prefer a clinic of your own, we can offer flexible scheduling to fit your needs. Please contact us by phone at 800-586-8324 or use the contact form to schedule a clinic.
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.

Each clinic attendee is elegible to download a copy of the Wintriss Die Protection Handbook. For over 30 years, the Handbook has been the stamping industry's most important reference for die protection, sensor selection and installation, die wiring, and technical information related to electronics and in-die sensing.
Find out how to get the most out of your die protection system. We'll detail the proper use of various control functions, and identify the five most important factors to consider when selecting a control system.
From basic probes to the state-of-the-art electronic sensors, we'll show you how to select and properly apply the right sensor for any application. We cover the advantages and limitations of each sensor type, and provide tips and tricks on selection installation, and wiring.
We'll provide specific instructions on how to select a sensor that will last in a stamping die. We will provide an overview of the testing process to ensure that each application is robust enough for a production environment. Wiring guidelines are discussed, along with recommended sensor connection hardware.
