The Diversified Graphic Machinery Foildex Cold Foil System is a Single Tower Technology. In the first print unit a Cold Foil Adhesive is applied through the inking station with a standard litho plate onto the substrate. The Cold Foil Adhesive can be applied as a spot or flood effect onto the entire sheet as the foil is only released onto the substrate where the ink based adhesive has been applied. The second print unit is the actual Cold Foil Application unit where the foil is applied onto the substrate and rewound.

Foildex

The Diversified Graphic Machinery Foildex Cold Foil System is a Single Tower Technology. In the first print unit a Cold Foil Adhesive is applied through the inking station with a standard litho plate onto the substrate. The Cold Foil Adhesive can be applied as a spot or flood effect onto the entire sheet as the foil is only released onto the substrate where the ink based adhesive has been applied. The second print unit is the actual Cold Foil Application unit where the foil is applied onto the substrate and rewound. After the foil has been applied, the remaining printing units apply CMYK and spot colors resulting in a brilliant foil effect. Converting back and forth between normal printing and Cold Foil applications is as simple as washing down the adhesive and re-inking the unit. The Foildex also has the unique ability to index cold foil, which extensively saves both time and money.

Save Money with Cold Foil Indexing

The most expensive part of cold foil printing is the cold foil itself. DGM Foildex Technology replaces older cold foil systems which use the equivlent of the circumference of the blanket cylinder, about 37″ for each sheet that passes through the press, irrespective of the amount of foil needed for that particular job. Reducing cold foil waste also has a significant environmental impact on an already fully recyclable product
