Blockfoil Plant List

We have an extensive range of large format and small format machinery across 3 sites to take on any sized print or packaging work. No job is too large or too small.

Platens / Flat Beds
Foil Blocking Press - MK1060ST - Blockfoil

On a platen foil printing machine the dies are mounted on a heated bed plate. The substrate is 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 hot foil stamping die is mounted on the heated bed and enters and exits the underside of the cylinder as part of a cycle. With the foil and print substrate in between, upon each entry under the cylinder an impression is left on the substrate.

Small Platens
Heidelberg GTP - Blockfoil

With a Heidelberg GTP the die is mounted on the heated plate and the substrate is individually fed into into the underside of the plate using a gripper arm. As the foil passes over the die an impression is left on the paper or board.

Hologram Application
Hologram Printing Unit

Holographic printing can be performed on certain foil printing presses in a similar way to standard hot foiling.

Continuous Stationery Foiling
Continuous Stationery Foiling

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