Rapida 105 PRO with new innovation for cold-foil finishing
A Rapida 105 PRO equipped with the newly developed Vinfoil Optima cold-foil module is somewhat hidden behind a huge Rapida 145 in hall 16 at Drupa. Print experts interested in luxury packaging and who ask themselves where the folding carton comes from before it is die cut by the Rapida RDC 106 should definitely not miss a press demonstration on the neighbouring Vinfoil stand.
In terms of speed the Optima cold-foil module is hardly any different to comparable systems, but the differences are great when it comes to changeover times. Most systems need 15 to 20 minutes for a foil change with multi-roll technology. With the Optima this is done in around six minutes with MFU (Multi Foil Use). This means you save one third of the time. This time can be used productively for printing and foil finishing. What is more, the new software developed by Vinfoil together with the Eindhoven University of Technology saves up to 85 per cent more cold foil. The software recognises the images and calculates the optimum utilisation of the foil surface.
Optima also opens up additional creative potential for finishing: counterfeit protection and 3D options are possible. These winning features are presented several times a day by Vinfoil and KBA live on the Vinfoil stand.
