One of Europe’s largest and most respected print finishing houses in Italy has just installed the latest Compact Foiler on a Man Roland 700 press.
Pesenti offer a variety of techniques which include Hot Foiling, Embossing, Laminating, and varnish on both sheet and continuous webs.
“The new press and Compact Foiler have dramatically extended our capabilities”. Mr Pesenti explains “We are the first in Italy to invest in this technology and provide these new, exciting effects to our print customers”
The company designed some spectacular samples for the recent Graph Expo show in Milan, Grafitalia 2013, where many customers expressed interest in the technology and new opportunities it provides.
The press was sourced and located by consultant Piero Pozzi who previously worked for Man Roland. “We fitted some UV lamps and configured the press to provide several special coatings and decided to work with Compact Foiler having researched all the alternatives” says Piero Pozzi. “The installation engineers were very professional, we produced fantastic results at high speed on the first day of operation!”
The Compact Foiler is the only floor mounted, portable module that can be used for cold foiling and creating special varnish effects in multiple locations. The foil tension is controlled automatically throughout the process for the ultimate results at high running speeds. CF have four foil saving options to improve yield and maintain a competitive advantage over competitors.
The World’s leading printers and Press manufacturers are selecting the Compact Foiler due to its flexibility and ease of operation. Many move the unit from press to press to create the effects in different locations. Reels can be changed quickly at floor level, eliminating lifting equipment, contamination and vibration caused by press mounted units. All locations require minimal press modification as the docking stations provide rapid alignment and connection to the press. The CF module has an integrated safety system to monitor all functions, eliminating risk; operating unsupervised, in perfect harmony with the press.
