• Full foil pull across the sheet
• Patented VACUFOIL foil transport
• Programmable dwell time
• Rapid job setup on platform level
The Gietz ROFO 910 roll-to-roll, flat/flat foil stamping machine demonstrated the latest developments in foil technology by running a sophisticated tobacco carton with hinge lids incorporating multiple capabilities, foil stamped inner frames with micro-embossing, and multi-sculptured combination foil stamping of a registered hologram.
