Blockfoil Plant List

We have an extensive range of large format and small format machinery across 3 sites. This means we can take on printing or packaging work of any size.  No job is too large or too small. See the plant list below.

Platens / Flat Beds
Foil Blocking Press - MK1060ST - Blockfoil

On a platen foil printing machine the dies get mounted on a heated bed plate. The substrate gets fed along the feeder table and enters the stamping station. This is where it comes into contact with the die and the foil to create a lasting impression.

Cylinders
Close Up of a Cylinder Hot Foiling Machine

A cylinder foil blocking press includes a large rotating print cylinder in constant motion. The foiling die mounts to the heated bed and enters the underside of the cylinder as part of a cycle. Upon each entry under the cylinder, with the foil and print substrate between, the impression remains on the substrate.

Small Platens
Heidelberg GTP - Blockfoil

With a Heidelberg GTP the die mounts on the heated plate. Then the substrate feeds into the underside of the plate using a gripper arm. The foil impression remains on the paper or board as the foil passes over the die.

Hologram Application
Hologram Printing Unit

Holographic printing can is similar to standard hot foiling and carried out on certain foil printing presses.

Continuous Stationery Foiling
Continuous Stationery Foiling

A Continuous Stationery Foiling Machine (CSF) can generate speeds of 10,000 impressions per hour. The die fixes to the heated bed plate in much the same way as other foiling machines. The hot foil is then fed through the machine leaving an impression on continuous paper.
