Heidelberg Cylinder Letterpress can be considered as one of the wonders of world! Even after a contentious use of over half a century, this work horse runs like a young & strong race winner. This machine was previously used for letterpress printing. All over the world, Heidelberg Cylinders are getting converted for running stamping and dye-cutting processes.

The biggest advantage of a converted letterpress machine (into Hot Foil Attachment Machine) is that it can run 16 foil strips as narrow as 10mm each in one single job, making holography easy, feasible and affordable.  

Transferring of solid patch of the foil on a full size sheet of a machine is easily achievable for a Heidelberg Cylinder Machine.

ADVANTAGES OF CONVERTED HEIDELBERG CYLINDER PRESS INTO HOT FOIL STAMPING MACHINE

  1. The main advantage of cylinder press for foil stamping is, its technology where cylinder is rolled on the bed with a constant and equal pressure on each side, Cause of that the solid and text matter jobs results are easily achieved on the machine compare to flatbed stamping machine.
  2. Because of its pressure technology it is easy to do stamping on coated and laminated sheet which is of low dyne.
  3. Compare to automatic flatbed machines the maintenance of the machine is very less and Single operator can handle these machines.

MAKE-READY & REGISTRATION OF FOIL STAMPING JOBS

High pressure embossing jobs are difficult on a converted cylinder machine, but you can achieve the result with good make-ready and good operator. You can use two types of blocks on cylinder machine i.e., 1.5 mm copper and 6 mm brass blocks. With the help of a Special adhesive, you can paste the 1.5 mm block on 4 mm aluminum plate which will be on the top of 13.5 mm Heater plate. To fit 6 mm Brass block you need to remove the 4 mm aluminum and under that you will see the Heater plate of 13.5 mm with number of holes, so with the help of the Block holders, you need to fit the blocks directly on that Heater plate.

There are many ways to register the job on cylinder machines but the most easy way to register the job is to make a full positive of your job as per the size of the heater plate with gripper margin marking on it. Place the positive on the Heater plate and fix the block as per the image on the positive.
Make-ready – Frist Wrap a Thick paper (Brown paper used for packing) on cylinder. Start putting thin papers inside the Thick paper, which is wrap on cylinder. First try to level the pressure from each side by putting thin papers inside the thick paper. Once the 80 to 85% level is ok, then take one impression on your desired sheet, wherever there is excess pressure cut the thin papers one by one which are inside the thick paper and try to level the equal pressure everywhere. 

EMBOSSING ON CONVERTED HEIDELBERG CYLINDER PRESS

If the right procedures are followed on cylinder machine as mentioned in foil stamping, the single level or shallow multilevel embossing can be achieved on the press. The female block should be mounted on heater plate and male block Should be created through fiber make-ready .To Maintain the pressure, a good trick is to slip packing under the embossing die. To produce the best result of embossing use the heated chase, cold chase will not give the good result compare to heated chase.
