Hot Foil Stamping Equipment
Hot Foil Stamping Equipment, Hot Foil Stamping Presses - THERM-O-TYPE NSF A3Pro  - The NSF A3Pro capabilities include flat foil stamping, blind and foil embossing, die-cutting, kiss cutting, perforating, scoring, imprinting, numbering and HSFF (high speed foil fusing).

The NSF A3Pro is designed to fill the needs of greeting card, business card, stationery, invitation and announcement manufacturers and commercial letterpress shops.

Using the NSF A3Pro, customers can efficiently produce work at speeds up to 4,500 sheets per hour.

The first question most customers ask is What makes the new A3Pro different from the existing NSF A3+ press? The short answer is, the NSF A3Pro can run an 18" by 12 1/4" sheet landscape and has a 10 5/8" by 17 1/2" impression area. The A3Pro has a more powerful impression mechanism, and a whole series of enhancements.

This configuration is ideally suited for greeting card manufacturers who are running their work using a two-up, just in time production format.

The NSF A3Pro is designed around a Windows based computer core with a full color display and touch screen interface.

Machine timing functions are controlled through an encoder that provides position and timing information to the computer core.

Paper registration, foil draw length, counter functions, jam detect/interrupt, double feed detect, speed and impression pressure functions are controlled and/or displayed through the computer/touch screen.

Three sensors monitor paper movement through the press. If a jam condition occurs, the machine will automatically drop off impression and stop. Jam condition information will then appear on the control display. Sensors can detect opaque, semi transparent and certain transparent materials without adjustment.

The headstop paper sensor is also used to confirm that a sheet is ready to advance into the impression area. If a skip feed condition occurs, the NSF A3Pro will automatically drop off impression. When the next sheet is detected at the headstop, the machine will automatically return to the "On" impression position. The NSF A3Pro will not stop if a skip sheet error occurs.

One feature that has proven popular with operators is the TDC and BDC (top dead center and bottom dead center) touch screen controls. TDC represents the most closed position of the imprint mechanism.

BDC represents the most open position of the imprint mechanism. Using the TDC and BDC controls, operators can quickly and accurately set the initial impression pressure at the start of each job. This helps to eliminate the potential for smashing dies due to improper impression adjustment during set-up.

This control is also useful when pouring a counter as the exact position of the die to the counter foundation can be duplicated as many times as required during the preparation and counter cast procedure.

Customers who run complex foil embossing dies on long runs require that dies remain heated during non-operational periods. A "sleep" mode allows the operator to shut down all machine functions while maintaining a desired die temperature.

Customers can batch count on the NSF A3Pro. To use this feature, the operator sets a batch quantity and a number of skip feed cycles in the touch screen control. Once programmed, the NSF A3Pro will run the desired batch quantity then skip feed the selected number of cycles to create a gap between batches on the delivery conveyor.

The standard NSF A3Pro foil system includes dual foil support shafts, dual programmable foil draws, and four foil rewind shafts. Multiple foil draw lengths can be programmed to minimize foil waste. Up to 7.2" diameter foil rolls can be used and foil draw length can be adjusted while the machine is running.

The NSF A3Pro features a computer controlled pneumatic centralized lubrication system. Lubrication cycles are activated as required using speed, impression pressure and run/idle time information collected and processed by the computer.  

The NSF A3Pro incorporates several important mechanical and electrical safety features. A dedicated 24-volt safety circuit with emergency stops switches; fail-to-safe relay and reset button have been installed. All controls and switches mounted to the control panel operate at 24-volts or less.

The NSF A3Pro feeder can hold a 32" high pile of stock. This feeder can be pre-loaded while the press is running to minimized down time. The combination of high capacity feeder and pre-loading significantly increases productivity, while reducing operator workload.

The NSF A3Pro is the culmination of over 20 years of collaborative work between major producers of foil stamped, embossed and die-cut products and THERM-O-TYPE Corporation.

Exceptional high productivity, accuracy and high quality output make the NSF A3Pro one of the most profitable machine purchases you can make for your business.
