Flatbed Unit for Hot Foil and Embossing

FP-4 Features

Nilpeter offers an innovative product, that is a perfect fit for the printer, who targets the competitive edge through value-added printing.

The FP-4 enables inline foiling and embossing in combination with all Nilpeter presses. The flatbed unit delivers superior embossing and hot foil quality, especially suitable for markets, where embellishment features are key, such as Wine & Spirits and Health & Beauty.

The transfer of heat and impression needs sufficient dwell time to ensure optimum quality.

The FP-4 unit features simultaneous embossing and/or foil opportunities and can be integrated at any desired position in the printing process.
