2. Short change-over times
Easy access to the foils and stamping dies, which can be quickly replaced and positioned.
3. Optimal sheet format
All standard printing machines in the B2 52 x 72 cm format class are covered with the optimal 870 x 560 mm sheet format, or 870 x 600 mm in the optional ESS version.
4. Longitudinal and transverse foil feed
The foil can be fed through the machine in line with the sheet running direction, and/or transverse to it.
5. Foil unwinding
Diameter-controlled or externally regulated foil unwinds with pneumatic brake for 1" and 3" cores guarantee a precise and smooth foil feed.
