The process of cold foil transfer involves applying UV-curable adhesive onto the image area without the need of using dies. After the foil has been in contact with the specific area, the adhesive is cured by UV light and then the carrier film is removed.
Cold foil can be flexibly integrated into any printing process as the cold foil is simply applied as a “fifth colour” to the print image. Overprinting offers free choice of colours. The base colour is usually silver. The cold foil can then be overprinted with any process colours or other colours. A variety of new metallic colour tones can also be created in this manner.
DISTORUN® has been developed and designed with modern servo control technology. A specially-designed software program allows for individual frame positioning and efficient use of foil.
DISTORUN® is placed on the rail system of the printing machine and the track speed of the printed substrate is recorded by a separate rotary encoder.
