On display at Kluge Booth #847 will be the ApexFoil™ Automatic Platen Press, giving PRINT attendees an opportunity to learn first-hand why Kluge's Techshop Session featuring the ApexFoil was one of the most well-attended sessions at Odyssey 2019.

ApexFoil™ Automatic Platen Press

The key properties of foil stamping are simple to identify: Time, Temperature and Tonnage. Until now, although simple to identify, those properties have been difficult to measure and control. Now, operators can use the ApexFoil's Compass™ control system that includes patented features to control the "3-Ts." Compass allows operators to greatly reduce, and in some cases, eliminate make-ready on every job.

OmniFold 3000 Folding and Gluing System
