The CR-3000 offers a better alternative to hot stamping flat parts. Unlike the standard vertical hot stamp press, roll on decorating makes for much better decorating. In a vertical press air entrapment can occur causing voids in the print. The inherent design of the roll-on decorator causes all of the air to be forced out as the part moves under the decorating head.
In our machine we decided to incorporate a photo-eye for machine actuation. In other words, the head will not extend down and the foil will not begin to pull until a part trips the photo-eye. This reduces foil scrap and allows the operator to simply place the part on the conveyor without having to actuate a start circuit manually.
