Since the early 1980’s when hologram technology progressed to foil stamping machines, the use for holograms has become more and more wide spread. Today the hologram has a whole range of uses from security tags to packaging, book covers and advertising.
The Kluge Hologram Registration Unit is built onto the Electronic Foil Control System, Low Mount. It enables you to accurately register holograms using your Kluge press. Note: the hologram registration unit is not compatible with the mechanical foil control system.
The Hologram Registration Unit utilizes fiber optic technology as the hologram registration mark detection system. The fiber optic sensor is mounted to the toggle base in line with the edge of the foil. The sensor is connected to the signal pick up device, also known as the ‘amplifier’ which is then electronically adjusted until the registration mark can be seen. This innovative system allows you to digitally align hologram foil on the die with registration accuracy of +/- .012″.
Two #30 gauge wire guides are positioned on the toggle base just below the die, one is placed under the foil and the other is placed over the foil. These wire guides effectively prevent the hologram foil from curling as it is fed through the machine (see photograph, left).
Easy access to the configuration and controls of the Hologram Registration Unit is made available from the touch screen control system.
The Hologram Registration Unit has been developed for EHD, EHF and WFE presses.
Often called “the workhorse of the industry”, the Kluge EHD Series Press is already a legend. Featuring speeds up to 3,300 impressions per hour, the EHD can accommodate up to 15″x 24.75″ (381mm x 629mm) sheets, with up to 80 square inches of die area.
The Kluge EHF Series Press takes the standard EHD and raises it to the next level. A stronger main frame, stronger platen bolts and heavier side arms give the press greater impressional strength. Improved side arm design gives the press almost three times the preload pressure.
The 13 x 19 WFE Series Web-Flow Press from Kluge is designed to handle increased specialty forms production of 4,000 to 10,000 iph. With all the advanced features of the legendary WFD series presses, Kluge’s WFE web-flow presses handle 2-1/2″ to 20″ (64mm to 508mm) web widths, and paper advancements in 1/96″ (.25mm) increments with 3″ to 17″ (76mm x 178mm) stock advancements.
