The Automatic Foil-Tech foil fusing equipment is the most efficient and popular Foil-Tech model. As paper is fed into the machine, a sensor detects the paper and automatically engages the impression mechanism. The impression mechanism will automatically disengage as the last sheet is delivered from the machine. This system assures minimum foil waste and does not require operator intervention.
The Automatic Foil-Tech Foil Fusing Equipment requires a compressed air supply.
The Automatic Foil-Tech can fuse metallic, pigment, glitter, holographic pattern and security foils to toner image areas on suitable paper and plastic substrates.
ThermoFusing is a process that “post-fuses” sheets that have been printed with toner.
It creates a high gloss finish over toner image areas similar to spot UV. ThermoFusing also improves toner adhesion and durability.
THERM-O-TYPE foil fusing equipment uses coated and un-coated fusing film to ThermoFuse toner image areas on suitable paper and plastic substrates.
Foil Fusing Equipment can be used to apply foil text and graphics over a background image, printed with toner, using the “Freedom Foil Process”.
Using this process, the background image is printed, then the sheet is laminated with a special laminating film. Laminated sheets are run back through a printer to apply toner on top of the laminate. After being over-printed, the sheets are run through the Automatic Foil-Tech where foil is fused to the over-printed toner image areas.
The Automatic Foil-Tech can apply Scratch Off foil using a process developed by THERM-O-TYPE.
The scratch off foil process is similar to the “Freedom Foil Process” but requires a different (scratch off foil) laminate film.
The Automatic Foil-Tech can be used to apply security features to products using holographic pattern or holographic security foils.
Using foil fusing equipment, flat foil text and graphics can be applied without a foil stamping die or foil stamping press.
Foil fusing does NOT require a foil stamping die, making it ideal for design prototypes, creating proofs, small quantity and personalized orders.
Security features can also be added using holographic pattern or security foils.
The Automatic Foil-Tech can be used for foil fusing, ThermoFusing, the Freedom Foil Process and to apply scratch off and security foils.
Due to the range of fusing foils and films available, the Automatic Foil-Tech can be used to create many different product enhancements and security embellishments.
Also, Foil-Tech equipment can also be used to apply single or two-sided thermal laminating films.
Automatic Foil-Tech electronic control features include; drive motor start/stop switch and variable speed control, heater on/off switch with digital temperature control, auto/manual impression selection switch, paper feed start/stop switch, jog reverse push button and foil jam indicator light.
Mechanical control features include; adjustable foil unwind/rewind tension controls.
The Automatic Foil-Tech friction feeder eliminates the need for labor intensive manual feeding.
The Automatic Foil-Tech uses six heated fusing rollers.
Six fusing rollers provides more thermal stability and dwell when running longer, wider and heavier weight stocks.
The Automatic Foil-Tech can support up to 1,000’ long foil rolls.
This model is designed to support up to two foil rolls, positioned to contact the top of the sheet, and one foil roll positioned to contact the bottom of the sheet.
A foil jam detect/interlock is installed on each foil rewind.
A separate tension control clutch is located on each foil unwind and rewind shaft.
The sensor controlled, automatic On/Off impression control can dramatically reduce foil waste and operator workload.
