The PLATINUM 1040 SF Press is designed to apply
Hot Stamping Foil and Holographic Hot Stamping Foil
on to sheets of paper and other media.
A Johannesburg or Victoria press base unit is completely renovated and is then converted into a hot stamping security press as follows:
• Base Unit Renovation
• Replacement Bed Assembly
• Electrical System
• Comprehensive Software package
• Press Control System
• Paper Handling System
• Foil Handling System
• Guarding System
The foiling equipment added to the base press uses newly manufactured components that are tested, reliable and of good quality.
The Press is based on the proven technology of the letterpress cylinder process. This offers all the advantages of the ‘round on flat’ stamping principle. It is an ideal machine for stamping and embossing, using the wide variety of paper/board and foils available.
The foil control system is the key to efficient application of holographic foils. SF Services has developed many unique software and hardware features that are incorporated into the Press. These features allow the control of foil to an extent not possible with other presses. When using holographic foil substantial savings are achieved. The short foil stretch is minimised so increasing the accuracy and quality of registered hologram application.
The foil pull through section is substantially constructed and is mounted on the end of the bed. The foil pull assembly can accommodate up to four full width rewinds, up to twelve hologram rewind units or a combination of both types of rewind. Each of the foil pull units features a microprocessor control, allowing five different pull lengths with up to ninety nine repeats of each length per program. Complex foil advance programs can be entered into the computer to cope with the most demanding of hologram layouts. The units can be programmed to achieve ‘step-ins’ when running registered image holograms.
Each foil pull assembly is driven by a high power motor that produces a dynamic performance capable of pulling a full bed length of foil at speeds up to 3,500 impressions per hour. A further rotating bar rewinds the spent foil which is then easily removed for disposal. The speed of pulling the foil is automatically minimised offering excellent foil control. There is also a foil counter on each foil pull to tell the operator how many impressions are left before the foil runs out so increasing operator efficiency.
