CF1000 Portable Foiler

It is very important to consider set up & changeover time, waste and quality when comparing vendors.

Our unit is constructed for high running speeds, quality and safety. We are endorsed by several press manufacturers and many leading Printers have chosen our module as the most versatile unit on the market today

Our module monitors all operations to safe guard the press and automatically shuts down if a problem occurs.

  1. Runs conventional and UV adhesives / inks for all types of press

  2. Small space requirement & can be used in multiple locations

  3. Comprehensive and versatile module

  4. Floor loading for safety, no crane or platform required

  5. Large capacity reels for less change overs

  6. Rapid connect with press

  7. No weight or vibration above the press

  8. Eliminates foil delamination and contamination of press during running

  9. Maximised foil yield

  10. Use different colours when multi reel (zoned foiling)

  11. No operator supervision, runs in complete harmony with press

  12. Closed loop monitoring of module & process with alarm / auto stop

  13. Cantilevered or lift out trolley for transportation and loading of reels

  14. Integrated design with press colour coded panels

  15. Reduce press downtime

  16. Total safety

  17. Robust and reliable solution supported worldwide

Rewind Station

Both unwind and rewind are driven using the latest digital servo controls for perfect tension and speed matching during the foiling process. The press is started and adhesive image applied/printed on the preceding station, checked for registration before initiating foiling section. The nip is closed and the module accelerates automatically  to match the press speed.

Docking Station 

The portable Unwind and Rewind module is positioned and secured in the docking station next to the desired Press location.  The system supplies and press controls are quickly connected using the coded plug and sockets. On power up the unit automatically recognises the station, setting up the relevant press interlocks before signalling the unit is ready for use.

Web Turning Unit 

The light-weight structure is mounted on the relevant print / coating station. The non-coated side of the web is turned through 90 degrees before and after the foiling process using our air turner bar section.

Foil Saving

The CF1000 produces a high quality finished roll after the foiling process for multiple passes through the press when the pattern permits. The CF1000 has four options for foil saving which can be selected depending on the pattern/coverage to increase foil yield.
