Brandtjen & Kluge, Inc. recently announced the development of a revolutionary new foil stamping and embossing capability, which will be introduced worldwide at DRUPA, May 18 – 13, 2000 in Dusseldorf, Germany (Stand 11B43).
This unique, new capability has initially been incorporated into the Kluge 14 x 22 EHD Foil Stamping, Embossing & Die Cutting Press, known as the “workhorse” of the industry. This new capability increases both the pressure and the speed of the press. This in turn allows significantly greater foil coverage and the ability to run work on the EHD that previously required a larger press. It also allows multiple images of a job to run at the same time without maxing out the press load.
With this new technology, Kluge can now fill the void between the 14 x 22 EHD and the expensive, high speed vertical presses. Kluge developed this technology at the request of their extensive customer base and the overall needs of the industry. In addition to the 14 x 22 size, this new technology will also be available in a larger sheet size press to accommodate larger format jobs.
“Our customers no longer have to look elsewhere or turn to a different equipment supplier when they want to run sheet sizes larger than the 14 x 22 EHD can accommodate,” reports Hank Brandtjen, president of Brandtjen & Kluge. “Brandtjen & Kluge went back to the roots of our long success and developed this technology based on the requests of our customers. We want our current and future customers to be able to stay within the Kluge equipment family when a larger Kluge is needed. With this technology, we can now provide the larger press format many have been asking for. We are very excited about this significant new product introduction,” Brandtjen stated.
