The principle

UV Film Casting

The UV coating can be applied partly or in solids from a printing unit using an offset plate or from a coating unit using a striped blanket or a flexo plate.

During the transfer of the pattern, the holographic texture of the foil comes in contact with the wet UV coating on top of the printing sheet. During this contact, the UV coating is being cured through the transparent holographic film. The result is a vice versa of the holographic film pattern on the printed sheet.

After the pattern has been transferred and the UV coating has been cured the plastic film is released from the sheet surface. The plastic film for UV film casting can be used multiple times until the pattern on the plastic is fading away or the plastic film gets worn. The number of passes is depending on different parameters such as intensity of UV rays, type of coating, amount of coating, etc.

Foil Saving - MFU

By guiding the foil web back into the printing nip (after transferring parts of the metallic layer for the first time) a foil web can be used up to three times during the same job and foil savings up to 85% can be reached. (Compared to full web and laminated board, depending on the job.)

Foil Saving - VIFOP

VIFOP is an online software for calculating foil consumption. The consumption is quickly calculated by uploading a PDF file of a job. The results can be exported to your Vinfoil cold transfer module automatically, setting the Multiple Foil Use (MFU) decks and Foil Shaft Changer (FSC). With this pre-set data, your job can start within minutes!

The principle of the Vinfoil Optima SF165MF

Continuous foil drive while both cylinder gaps are facing each other by use of the special engineered Direct Foil Drive rollers (before and after press nip). This Vinfoil technology ensures perfect synchronization of circumference speed of the press with the cold foil web. Web tension is regulated by software which is feeding data to the following Vinfoil’s technologies (patent applied):

  • Servo motion control systems with torque control
  • DFD rollers
  • FT locking shafts

MFU® is redirecting the cold transfer web back into the printing nip after transferring parts of the metallic layer for the first time. With this technology, a foil web can be used up to 3 times to generate optimal utilization of the cold foil reel.It is not necessary to stop and restart the foil web with every turn of the cylinder-like in systems using indexing.

  • Multi reel without limitation in quantity of foil cores

The principle of the Vinfoil Micro SF110MF

  • Single reel with one large reel or multi-reel with up to unlimited small reels (min. width 50 mm) enabling you to cover even small cold foil spots.
  • No special brackets for multi-reel required
  • 3 inch cores no matter if a single or multi-reel
  • Perfect rewinding result

Multi Reel

With the multi reel option it is possible to use up to 10 webs during printing so even the smallest spots can be overprinted. With the multi reel feature you can reach up to 50% of foilsavings. In other words, the Vinfoil Micro gives you a perfect start into the cold transfer world.
