Process Details of Cold Transfer in Sheet-fed Offset Printing

  • Combination of a print and laminating process
  • Overprinting can be performed both inline and offline
  • Speed up to 20,000 sheets per hour
  • Allows use of standard offset printing plates, rollers, washing agents, rubber blankets for applying the adhesive
  • Job changeovers in just a few minutes
  • No need to apply opaque white - the foil is simply omitted in the relevant areas 

Cold Transfer Offers a Wide Design Scope:

  • Flexibility when creating designs
  • High register accuracy
  • Very fine elements, negative lettering, rasters and large areas
  • Metallic half-tone effects
  • Optimal foil-to-print register
