Oft metal foil cold pressing solution

oft metal foil cold pressing technology adopts the "one-time pass" technology to realize the traditional multi-process post press surface finishing on the offset press at one time, which can not only achieve the traditional post press surface finishing effect, but also achieve some surface finishing effects that cannot be achieved by traditional processes

oft Technology Co., Ltd. is a newly established company, headquartered in Cheshire Cheadle, UK. It is specialized in providing offset lithography machines with innovative solutions. 4. The transmission part of the equipment adopts the circular arc tooth synchronous transmission mode, which improves the product appearance display and reduces the cost

oft's concept is to integrate the post press processing process into the offset printing process. Oft metal foil cold pressing technology originated from the printing industry is product demand-oriented, and effectively combines the existing printing equipment and operating staff skills. The characteristics of metal foil cold pressing technology ensure its successful implementation and application

traditional post press surface finishing requires 2-3 processes, and the cumbersome processes mean investment, cost, registration and other quality problems. Oft metal foil cold pressing technology adopts the "one-time pass" technology to realize the traditional multi-process post press surface finishing on the offset press at one time, which can achieve both the traditional post press surface finishing effect and some surface finishing effects that cannot be achieved by traditional processes, It also has the characteristics of simple operation and low cost

John Hopkinson, director of oft, explained that this integrated technology has been applied to production and can effectively save customers' costs. In addition, oft metal foil cold pressing technology provides great freedom for designers, and 3D image transfer can even be realized directly in the offset printing process

foil tone technology

the foil tone technology of oft company transfers the metal foil to the printing sample through the offset printing process, and the metal foil has no heating, die cutting and complicated processes in the transfer process. In this process, metal foil, like ink, can achieve foil ironing effects such as full sheet solid, dot and halftone. Therefore, through foil tone technology, metal foil can be overprinted like ink, which can achieve some special effects and foil scalding effects of various colors

in the foil tone technology, the process of metal foil attaching to the substrate is a complete offset printing process, and the foil ironing process is realized through the traditional offset printing plate. The adaptation between metal foil and ink is the same as that between ink and ink. There is no template for molding in this process, so as to save costs. In addition, the prepress preparation time of this foil tone technology is only the time for version change, and there is no other preparation time. Therefore, compared with the traditional foil ironing process, oft's foil tone technology greatly saves operation time, and its foil ironing speed is the printing speed of offset printing. If metal foil is not used, ordinary ink can also be printed as usual without any influence from foil tone technology. The finishing effect that can be achieved by the traditional hot stamping foil process is fully realized by the foil tone technology, and the foil tone technology can also achieve some special finishing effects that cannot be achieved by the traditional hot stamping process

the foil tone module includes four units, namely two metal foil reels and two units of the printer. The foil tone module does not need to be implanted into the printer. When the metal foil is not used, the two printing units of the printing machine applied to the foil tone module can be used for printing ink without any mechanical and circuit adjustment. Foil-t is almost blank in most places; On the other hand, China's industry has developed rapidly in recent years. One module can be installed in most 74 and 105 series printing machines. In the foil tone module, the two units of the printer can be either two printing units of the printer, a printing unit and a coating unit. The foil tone module can be placed anywhere in the printer according to the required post press finishing effect

foil tone technology requires special metal foil adhesive, and the metal adhesive is transferred to the printing substrate through the printing plate of the first printing unit. Unheated metal foil can be transferred to the substrate under the action of pressure and adhesive through the second printing unit. Foil tone technology can realize both high-resolution metal foil hot stamping and half tone, full sheet and solid metal foil hot stamping

Foil-ton16. Constant force/displacement/deformation measurement range: 0.5% - 100% FSE module can be installed between the last printing unit and the first coating unit of the printer. This installation method can achieve a surface effect similar to the traditional foil ironing process (the traditional foil soup process is to transfer the metal foil to the substrate after the ink is transferred to the substrate). In addition, since there is no pressure in the foil tone process, there is no impression on the printed matter after foil ironing

if the metal foil is transferred to the substrate before the ink, the precise registration between the ink and the metal foil or the overprint of the ink and the metal foil is required. Foil tone technology can realize field or half tone CMYK color on metal foil. This makes enterprises do not need to save a large number of non-ferrous foil, that is, through the overprint of transparent pigment ink and metal foil, color metal foil can be obtained. Therefore, the foil tone technology makes the layout of the printed sample more simple, and the metal foil of different colors can be transferred to the substrate at the same time at one time, which cannot be achieved in the traditional foil ironing process. When the foil tone module is installed at the front of the printer, a built-in UV drying unit is required

whether the foil tone module is installed in front of or after the printing unit, it can achieve the speed that the traditional process cannot achieve, and there is no additional processing cost. In addition, both installation methods allow single process processing and multi process processing, and the two-color machine can also obtain the required foil burning effect through multi process processing. Foil tone technology can replace the offline foil ironing process

foil tone technology can realize the design and pattern of traditional foil ironing process, but foil tone technology can overcome some technical difficulties of traditional process, such as the edge finishing of small fonts. Foil tone technology can realize half tone foil ironing, which provides a broader space for novel product design

foil tone technology is more convenient. For example, in the traditional foil ironing process, it is very difficult and slow to iron the foil on the whole sheet, while the foil tone technology can be realized at the normal printing speed without using various expensive metal foil composite plates. The adhesive part of the carton does not need foil ironing, and the foil tone technology does not need to use paper foil composite plates in these areas. In addition, this technology can also be used for printed circuit boards, greeting cards and other decorations with neon lights

if the product design requires the metal foil to be used in different parts of the printing sample, such as the edges of both sides of the sample, the metal foil of two rollers can be used at the same time, and one roller is used for one side, without other complicated operations. Foil tone technology can realize many new design concepts on cardboard boxes, greeting cards, books and trademarks at low cost

fli tone technology

fli tone technology can realize the post press finishing of sprinkling gold in the process of ordinary offset printing, with good clarity. At present, most gold powder finishing used for greeting cards, cartons and gift packaging requires 2-3 processes. The dust is very large during the operation, and the operator cannot accurately control the amount of gold powder, but fli tone's "one pass" technology can overcome the above difficulties

fli tone technology transforms a coating unit of a printing machine with UV drying function into a specially designed cavity doctor blade roller system. Oft company provides a specially designed coating system for fli tone technology, which can control the amount of gold powder in the right proportion on the swing rod to ensure the desired post press effect. Fli tone technology realizes the coating of gold powder through the wrinkle roller and UV drying system, which can ensure that the powder is in the right position and attached to the print surface with an appropriate thickness, and has a high gloss. Moreover, fli tone technology will not produce scattered gold powder, so as to avoid pollution to other prints, and will not cause physical injury to workers. Combined with other applications of oft's "one-time pass" technology, it can finally significantly improve product quality and reduce product costs

summary

the metal foil cold pressing solution launched by oft company effectively integrates the traditional post press foil pressing process into the offset printing process. On the one hand, it simplifies the control link, reduces the difficulty of operation, improves efficiency, and saves costs; On the other hand, oft's metal foil cold pressing solution can not only achieve the finishing effect of the traditional bronzing process, but also achieve some post press finishing effects that cannot be achieved by the traditional process, providing a broader space for designers
