FoilStar, Heidelberg’s cold transfer module, supports a whole host of unusual finishing effects for labels, packagings, and high-quality commercial work – giving you access to brilliant metallic effects that will add considerable value to your customers’ print products. Using FoilStar on the Speedmaster XL 75, Speedmaster CX 102, Speedmaster CD 102, and Speedmaster XL 106 enables a wide range of substrates to be finished in excellent quality. FoilStar is also available for Speedmaster XL 105 and Speedmaster CD 74 presses and can be retrofitted.
FoilStar Cure makes it possible to produce metallic finishing effects with cold transfer on in-mold label material (IML), primarily with LED UV. The modified web guidance with a long wrap angle on the impression cylinder serves to cure the transferred metallic pigment as one with the UV adhesive and substrate by means of an LED UV interdeck dryer. This produces better adhesion of the metallic pigments, and thus also high process stability, and a much higher metallic gloss.
FoilStar with indexing function enables savings of 30 % to 80 % for printing forms with low area coverage. After finishing is complete, the web is stopped in the printing nip while the winder and unwinder continue to rotate. The so-called dancer rollers create a buffer in this way.
Up to six narrow webs can be used with this entry-level module. This means that production can be economical even without indexing.
The Speedmaster 2020 generation uses the immense
spectrum of digital possibilities like no other printing press generation before it.
