The company says that, thanks to the X-Flex’s automatic pre-register and vision control, the adjustment of Omet’s new hot foil unit is automatic in the same way as the printing units. According to Omet, this reduces the time needed to prepare jobs and cuts down to a minimum the wasted material at start-up.
The unit has an optional tooling device which Omet says can improve both set-up time for the machine and operator safety, allowing easy removal of the printing cylinder. A new printing roll can be prepared offline, using the optional change trolley, equipped with a worktable.
Other features include a tension control system, integrated in the printing head, that helps avoid foil wrinkles; a control panel and a print pressure adjustment system; and doors that open to allow cleaning operations on the tools and rubber counter-roll.
