St. Croix Falls, WI, September 6, 2017 – Brandtjen & Kluge (Kluge), the industry leader in digital print package converting solutions will demonstrate several NEW finishing equipment solutions at PRINT17. Advancements in die cutting, foil stamping, digital foil transfer, UV coating and folding and gluing will be on display at PRINT17 in Chicago, IL Booth #4015.
The key properties of foil stamping are simple to identify: Time, Temperature and Tonnage. Until now, although simple to identify, those properties have been difficult to measure and control. Now, operators can use the ApexFoil’s Compass™ control system that includes patented features to control the “3-T’s” Time, Temperature and Tonnage. Compass allows operators to greatly reduce and in some cases, eliminate make-ready on every job.
Leveraging the benefits of the digital print workflow, the DIGITAL METAL® process allows digital transfer of foil onto paper and cardboard substrates. At the heart of the process is the DM-LINER®, a digital foiling device that precisely completes the foil transfer, optimizes foil usage and manages inventory intelligently. The DIGITAL METAL® process is highly effective in producing decorative effects for labels, brochures, invitations, magazines, packaging, photo cards, calendars, and more.
The OmniCoat 3000 roller coater evenly coats a wide range of substrates. Other features include vacuum hold-down throughout, precision coating metering adjustments, digital variable-speed control and special high-density UV resistant applicator roller. Kluge offers a line of OmniCoat UV roller coaters for both production digital and wide format applications.
The Kluge OmniFold 3000 Automatic Folding and Gluing System is a fully modular converting system designed to fulfill today’s need and grow with future demands of the commercial printer and packaging manufacturer. Built to maximize converting capabilities while minimizing set-up time, the OmniFold includes features that bring productivity and reliability to a new level of expectation. These advancements are met with the quality you expect from Brandtjen & Kluge.
