see the FEATURES

Automatic Loading and Unloading System (ALUS+)

The ALUS makes it easy to operate and possible to load and unload two locking shafts (unwinding and rewinding) at the same time. Hence, your changeover times are reduced to a minimum. Because the ALUS is integrated into the cold transfer module, there is a clear communication process between the module and the ALUS, so safety is ensured. The length and height of the ALUS can be modified to create a perfect fit for every location.

Direct foil drives (DFD)

Your customer requires their job to be ready fast. With the Direct Foil Drive (DFD) technology, we guarantee flawless high-quality printing results at speeds of 20.000 sheets per hour.

Foil Shaft Changer (FSC)

With the Vinfoil Foil Shaft Changer (FSC), your job can be prepared before or during production. Pre-set data, provided by the Vinfoil Foil Optimizing Program (VIFOP) software, enables a foil changeover in approx. 6 minutes. Changing the reels takes place at ground level ensuring an easy and safe operation.

Foil Unit (FU)

With the FU, one or more foil reels can be used at the same time (Multi-reel). It has automatic diameter detection for perfect speed synchronization with the press. The foil is unwound and rewound. And the rest roll diameter can be adjusted, depending on the thickness of the foil core.

Multiple Foil Use (MFU)

By guiding the foil web back into the printing nip (after transferring parts of the metallic layer for the first time) a foil web can be used up to three times during the same job and foil savings up to 85% can be reached. (Compared to full web and laminated board, depending on the job.)

frequently asked QUESTIONS

Using a standard offset plate, an image is printed onto a substrate by the use of a tacky adhesive. Foil spools from an unwind and is nipped to a substrate. The aluminium particles from the cold foil layer are released from the polyester film and transferred to the substrate by the tack of the glue.
An image with a bright surface is created on the sheet. Foil that does not adhere to the adhesive remains on the 12um film, and waste is directed to a rewind spool or to a shredder (Vinfoil Infigo systems).

Because the adhesive is applied like a conventional ink, no expensive stamping die has to be created. Once printed, the surface of cold foil images may be overprinted and varnished.
  • Enables full-surface sheet decoration at high speeds
  • High-speed applications up to 20,000 sheets per hour overprinting can be done inline and offline
  • Eliminates the need for engraved hot stamping dies
  • Allows use of standard offset printing plates, rollers, washing agents, rubber blankets for applying the adhesive
  • Using multiple parallel-running, narrow foil rolls, the foil consumption can be minimized and made more economical
  • Job changeovers, with or without foil, can be performed in just minutes
  • No need to apply opaque white – the foil is simply omitted in the relevant areas
  • Outstanding flatness of the output – optimal further processing
  • Speed-to-market potential – very short production times
  • Ideal for small print runs and frequent job changeovers

Multiple Foil Use (MFU) is Vinfoil’s patented foil saving technology.
