Foil Stamping Equipment
Hot Foil Stamping, Hot Foil Stamping Equipment - THERM-O-TYPE NSF A3+ has been designed to fill the needs of greeting card, business card, stationery, invitation and announcement manufacturers and commercial letterpress shops. NSF A3+ Capabilities include hot foil stamping, blind and foil embossing, die and "kiss" cutting, perforating, imprinting and numbering using traditional tooling. The NSF A3+ can also be used to enhance digital output using the HSFF (High Speed Foil Fusing), ThermoEmbossing and ThermoFusing.

The NSF A3+ is controlled through a Windows based computer core with full color display and touch screen interface.

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

Foil draw and paper position information can be entered and displayed in inches or millimeters as required.

Electronic vertical sheet registration ensures precise imprint position with simple, intuitive adjustments.

Horizontal and skew paper adjustments use simple mechanical controls. Minor vertical and horizontal registration adjustments can be made while the NSF A3+ is running.

Three sensors monitor paper movement through the NSF A3+. If a jam condition occurs, the press will automatically drop off impression and stop. Jam condition information will then appear on the control display. Sensors can detect opaque, semi-transparent and many transparent materials.

Paper sensors and computer core also control counter functions, foil and paper advance, air blast and the on/off impression mechanism as each sheet is detected before being advanced into the imprint area.

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 these two controls, operators can quickly and accurately set the initial imprint pressure at the start of each job. This helps to eliminate the potential for smashing dies due to improper pressure adjustment.

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.

The standard NSF A3+ foil system includes dual foil support shafts, dual foil tension controls, a single programmable foil draw, and dual foil rewind shafts. Multiple foil draw lengths can be programmed to minimize foil waste. Up to 6" diameter foil rolls can be used, and foil draw length and tension can be adjusted while the machine is running. A second programmable foil draw can be added as an option if required.

The NSF A3+ feeder can hold a 32" high pile of stock and can be pre-loaded while the press is running. The combination of high capacity feeder and pre-loading significantly increase productivity, while reducing operator workload.
