Hot stamping refers to the process of printing electrochemical aluminum foil onto the surface of the substrate under a certain temperature and pressure. As one of the leading hot foil stamping machine manufacturers in China, TRODISS wrote this article about the factors that affect the hot stamping effect, hope it can help you.
There are many factors that affect the hot stamping effect, which can be discussed from aspects such as hot stamping materials, hot stamping processes, and printing substrates. The following is a detailed introduction to several main factors that affect the hot stamping effect:
The influence of hot stamping materials
The quality of the hot stamping effect is closely related to the hot stamping material used. Common hot stamping materials include gold foil, silver foil, etc. Gold foil has a better hot stamping effect, with bright colors and strong texture, while silver foil has a softer texture. In addition, the thickness of the gold foil will also affect the hot stamping effect. Generally speaking, the thinner gold foil will have a better hot stamping effect.
The influence of the hot stamping process
The hot stamping process is one of the important factors affecting the hot stamping effect. The hot stamping process includes hot stamping temperature, hot stamping pressure, hot stamping time, etc. Heating hot foil stamping die-making machine, at the same time, the appropriate hot stamping temperature and pressure can tightly combine the hot stamping material with the printing substrate, thereby obtaining a clear and full hot stamping effect. The hot stamping time needs to be adjusted according to the thickness of the hot stamping material and the characteristics of the printing substrate to ensure the consistency of the hot stamping effect.
Effect of the printing substrate
The choice of printing substrate will also have a certain impact on the hot stamping effect. Generally speaking, printing substrates with good smoothness and strong surface texture are more suitable for hot stamping. Printing substrates with poor smoothness can easily cause problems such as uneven hot stamping and lack of full color. In addition, the thickness of the printing substrate will also affect the hot stamping effect. A printing substrate that is too thin will easily cause the foil to show through, while a printing substrate that is too thick will affect the texture and effect of the hot stamping.
The impact of layout design
The rationality of the layout design will also have a certain impact on the hot stamping effect. Hot stamping is usually used to highlight key elements such as text and patterns. Therefore, when designing, you need to pay attention to selecting appropriate hot stamping elements, as well as reasonable hot stamping position and size. Too many or too few bronzing elements will affect the overall bronzing effect.
Effect of speed
When using an automatic hot foil stamping machine, the hot foil stamping speed actually reflects the contact time between the substrate and the hot stamping foil during hot foil stamping, which directly affects the hot stamping fastness. If the hot stamping speed is too fast, the hot stamping may fail or the mark will become blurred. If the soup printing speed is too slow, it will not only affect the quality of the soup printing, but also affect the production efficiency.
The hot stamping foil machine should be installed in a dry, ventilated, well-lit, and convenient place to operate.
To sum up, the factors that affect the hot stamping effect mainly include hot stamping materials, hot stamping technology, printing substrate, layout design, etc. Through the reasonable selection of materials, process control, and exquisite layout design, the ideal hot stamping effect can be achieved.
