IS HOT STAMPING?
Hot stamping is a dry printing process. In hot stamping,
metallic or color pigmented hot stamping foil is applied
to the part by trapping the material between a heated
die and the part. Heat and pressure is applied and the
foil is released from the carrier and is permanently
bonded to the part. Hot stamping machines are specific
to certain types of applications.
hot stamping machines are designed to be used exclusively
on flat parts or flat areas of a part. They can also
be used to tip off a raised area on a part such as raised
letters or numbers.
There are also roll hot stamping machines
which are designed to rotate a round or oval part under
the die to print on these types of surfaces. This allows
for 360 degree printing on round cylindrical shapes
and front or back printing on oval shapes.
