Hot foil stamping process

There are Five types of hot stamping presses according to the stamping methods and substrate's shapes.

 
  •       Heat transfer Process

           1.Roller-to-Flat Hot Stamping
         Roller-to-flat hot stamping,is actually based on the principle of flat heat-transfer press,which is primarily used to decorate the planar objects and curved objects.Typically,a object that is completely required to be decorated,appliance panel,some facet of cosmetic packaging,top of the plastic box or wooden jewelry box,toys,PVC sheet,ski,and plastic posts are suitable to be decorated by a roller-to-flat hot stamping press .If a floating device is installed on the working station,roller-to-flat hot stamping press is also used to decorate the complex objects. H-150M and H-300M belong to this type.
 
      2.Rotary Hot Stamping
        Rotary hot stamping is based on the principle of rotary heat-transfer press. Most of Heat transfer machine can transfer both flat and round object. When trnasfer Flat object, The roller press down, The working table move from left to right; When transfer round object, The roller press down, The working table keep stillness and Object turn round.
      (1)For Empty Platic Bottle
      For the rigid bottle,is able to endure the pressure of roller.so,such bottle is directly decorated plus an axis position system;For the pliable bottle,is decorated after the bottle full of air to support the roller.
     (2)Plastic Pliable Tube
   Toothpaste,shampoo,bodycare,gel's container,or tubes are dcorated by this press if a supporting axis is installed.

     3.Flat-to-flat Fot Stamping
         Flat-to-flat hot stamping press is suitable to decorate texts or logo onto some part of a planar object,such as Operation panel. This type hot stamping machine suitable for Gilding Leather, Wooden, Paper, Film, Plastics plate, Photo frame, Electron part Etc.
 
     4.Flat-to-roller Hot Stamping
       The flat-to-roller hot stamping press,is suitable to decorate the round objects,such as plastic cap, ball-point pen,soft tube,round dial,golf cue,cosmetic box and food plastic packaging. H-TC50K, H-TC70K, H-TC100K belong to this type.

 

 

 

 

 

Plain hot foil stamping process

    

1) Hot stamping text and patterns on flat products.

      This form is the most common. The product itself does not contain any type of graphics and text. To perform bronzing on it, it is necessary to make a graphic-text silicone template or a metal template. Bronzing relies on the difference in pressure and temperature to form graphics on the surface of the product. Only the graphics on the hot plate can form a mirrored reverse graphics on the surface of the product.

2) Foil stamping on the raised part of the flat product.

This form is more common in the plastic hot stamping industry. During injection molding, graphics and text can be engraved on the mold, so that the injection molded product has a raised part. In order to express enough eye-catching metal features on the raised part, a flat hot stamping machine is an important option. At this time, you only need to paste a flat silicone plate on the hot plate of the hot stamping machine. Obviously, the raised part will be in contact with the ironing plate to transfer the foil, and the non-contact part will not transfer the foil.


3) Bronzing on non-planar products.

In order to increase the difficulty of imitation, many plastic products or resin products avoid using flat structures, and use spherical or smooth curved special-shaped surfaces. If you want to perform hot stamping on such products, in addition to making rigid support fixtures, the production and product shape A highly consistent silicone mold becomes extremely important. Due to the shrinkage of injection molding products, there may be obvious size differences between the design draft provided by the user and the actual product. To complete exquisite bronzing, it is necessary to make a very complicated silicone mold, and make fine adjustments based on the actual size of the product and the deformation rules of the design draft. The adjustment on non-planar products has stricter requirements on the pressure and balance, and the use of metal plates should be avoided.

4) Embossed embossing
      Embossing embossing is an excellent representative of the paper foil stamping process, which requires embossed stamping patterns on the paper. The most obvious feature of concave-convex embossing is the use of two upper and lower sub-molds that are opposite to each other. The upper mold is a concave copper plate mold, and the lower mold is a graphic resin mold. During the embossing process, the concave die and the convex die press the paper tightly, and the embossed hot stamping pattern will be formed on the contact part of the hot stamping paper and the concave die.

Hot stamping fixture for hot foil stamping machine

   Hot stamping, especially the hot stamping of injection molded products, involves very complicated product shapes, and fixtures with good stability and certain strength must be made. Almost every kind of product requires a specific jig, and it should be said that the jig is the primary factor to complete the exquisite bronzing of the product. The jig of the hot stamping machine should have the following characteristics:
    1) High pressure resistance.
    Hot stamping machines have greater pressure than pad printing machines and screen printing machines, and the fixtures need to withstand greater pressure, usually made of metal materials
    2) Ensure good contact between the bronzing surface and the ironing plate
    If the hot stamping surface of the product is not flat, it must be ensured that the contact surface between the hot plate and the product has a good contact point
    3) Good interchangeability
    For turntable hot stamping machines and some automatic hot stamping machines, the fixtures of the products must ensure good tolerance and interchangeability to ensure that the hot stamping position of each product is accurate and effective
    4) Pay attention to the shrinkage of plastic
    Some plastic products tend to have dimensional deviation and deformation, and the fixture should be able to support the product and be able to adapt to most products.
