UV screen printing and hot-foil stamping in one single step

New Sakurai in-line hot foil stamper at ESC. As specialist for particularly sophisticated print tasks ESC is actually offering a new time- and cost-saving solution for finishing UV-varnished screen prints with metallized hot foil. The in-line hot foil stamper Sakurai LQM Evolution is suitable for all graphic, packaging, automotive, appliance and plastic card applications etc.

Screen printing, drying, hot foil stamping and stacking in one production process. Simply and quickly the user achieves high-quality prints with amazing flat, tactile or 3D effects. The LQM Evolution is designed to be fully integrated into every Sakurai screen printing line, installed after the dryer and before the stacker. The job setting is very easy and the machine can be operated by less experienced staff. No more need for dies and the foil waste is minimized. After the image has been printed as UV-varnish on the substrate and then dried, the foil is applied exactly only on the necessary parts, meaning the printed area.

Via touchscreen the operator can enter such parameters as foil application temperature, foil application pressure, substrate length, number of decoration areas or indexing front to back (multi foil application). The machine is also equipped for remote teleassistance and is able to handle sheets with a max. size of 520 mm x 760 mm (model LQM 76) or 1050 mm x 760 mm (model LQM 105). Apart from partial foil application the machine is equipped with two more modes: The continuous mode for foiling the complete surface as well as the bypass function to carry out jobs without foil stamping. This mode allows the sheet to pass through at the same speed as the press, acting purely as a transport mechanism.

The LQM Evolution can also be integrated into existing Sakurai cylinder screen printing lines, opening up the possibility for many production plants to improve their versatility or their level of specialization and to generate profitable growth.

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG informed about its decision to withdraw from next year's Drupa fair. The main reason is the Covid-19 pandemic and its consequences - restrictions on movement and accumulation, hygiene restrictions and the impossibility to predict how the epidemic will look like next year. At the same time, the concern informs that it intends to focus on the organization of Innovation Weeks in the show centre in Wiesloch-Walldorf, which is related to the ever shorter time of introducing novelties to the market. The first series of presentations, which will also be available online, will take place in October this year.

With the Rapida 106 X, Koenig & Bauer is unveiling a new high-performance sheetfed offset press for the medium format 740 × 1060mm. It meets every conceivable demand that today’s market makes of a press in terms of automation, digitisation and workflow solutions, thereby making it the latest in a line of trendsetting developments defining the future of industrial offset.

Surface treatment has come a long way in the 70 years since Verner Eisby, the founder of Vetaphone, invented and developed the technique that is now known worldwide as Corona. As market demand has led to the evolution of new inks, lacquers, and substrates, so surface treatment has been refined and become more highly tuned to today’s complex market requirements in which the demand for film and foil based printed packaging continues to rise.
