QC-Hot Foil


Quick-Change Hot Foil Cassette

Quick-Change Hot Foil Cassette for offset printing, with revolutionary induction heating technology

Built on the same principles as the Nilpeter QC-Die Unit, the new hot foil cassette features fast and easy setup of equipment and tooling. Add the revolutionary new heating technology and the possibility of applying hot foil to medium structured substrates, and you have yourself a winner.

Revolutionary technology

The hot foil cassette ensures optimum conditions for ratary hot foiling, as well as the high stability needed when applying hot foil to a structured substrate.

Last but not least, the unit utilises revolutionary induction technology for heating of the hot foil cylinder. With induction technology, heat is quickly and evenly distributed on the tool, and accurately controlled by the temperature sensor. It has none of the handling issues associated with oil-heated systems which require warm oil feed pipes to be dismantled during tool changes. The technique is quick, safe, and clean for the operator.
