Compact Foilers Installs Latest Cold Foil Module at Philtone Litho

Compact Foilers, a leading international manufacturer of modular cold foil and cast and cure technology, has installed one of its latest CF1000 PM models at Philtone Litho in Bristol, UK. The new unit, which is fitted to a five-color Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 106, offers Philtone a cost-effective means of meeting the growing demand for enhanced print work.

The CF1000 PM module has been developed for cold foil and cast and cure applications to produce high-quality effects on a wide variety of print media from lightweight papers to cartonboard. It has the latest Siemens drive and control technology to optimize foil yield with three foil-saving systems fitted as standard. The tension control on the unit allows multiple passes, while the integrated roll loading system eliminates the need for a crane or any handling equipment, so the reels can be loaded and set up in seconds to minimize downtime.

With market research indicating that products enhanced by foil have 80 percent more appeal and a 25 percent higher shelf-offtake, it’s easy to see why an inline solution for printers is valuable to offer to their clients. The ability to attract more attention and hold it for longer enhances the quality, value and brand awareness of a product, which in today’s competitive retail environment is vital for market share.

With an extensive portfolio of top brand clients to satisfy, Philtone Litho prides itself on providing intelligent print solutions with industry-leading knowledge and expertise that offers high-quality and cost-effective printing, as proven by its accreditations that include ISO9001 for Quality, ISO14001 Environmental Standards, FSC, as well as Sedex and EcoVadis for the Ethical supply chain. The company, which operates a 24-hour workflow, offers a full range of services from pre-press to finishing and delivery with a diverse and modern plant list that includes offset and digital printing capabilities.
