About the Gemini Multilam Foil FX
The Multilam range is split in to two different models both offering either a semi or fully automated operation for stocks up to 350 gsm (limited to 300 gsm on auto models, stock dependent). Both variants also include the high quality, high pressure Chrome Impact Laminating Roller with 1,400 Watt Infra-Red Heater and accurate integrated thermal measuring probe which ensures perfect temperature control at all times. Both ranges also offer high performance, high speed single & double sided laminating with integrated 18 stage Positive and Negative Anti-Curl bar with class leading operating speeds of up to 4.8 metres per minute. Traditional encapsulation is also possible if required for sheets up to 330 mm wide and films up to 250 Micron.
The Multilam Foil FX offers a semi automated single or double sided laminating solution but with the addition of the integrated powered rewind roller on the rear of the machine also offers high quality Foiling and Spot UV Effects. We have designed the Foil FX models to offer digital printers a low cost compact laminating machine which also incorporates advanced capabilities such as Foiling and Spot UV effects only normally found on much larger equipment.
This technology is all about added value, flexibility, and low costs where traditional outsourced foil blocking can be expensive, especially for intricate designs or low volume production. Foiling with toner foils, also known as dry coating however, can cost from as little as 5 pence per SRA3 sheet. The fact that the technology requires no special tools, training or dedicated operators further enhances the appeal. Creating bespoke packaging, labels, business cards, greeting cards, book covers or jackets as well as tickets or invites with security holograms suddenly become achievable for the many and not just the few.
The Multilam Burst offers a semi or fully automated single or double sided laminating solution with the ability to burst single sided laminated sheets as they exit the machine thus creating a finished lay flat sheet ready for guillotining. An integrated spring loaded and fully adjustable Perforation Device on both the top and bottom roller punctures the film as it is unwound and fed into the machine, this creates a weak spot in the film and allows for easy separation of the sheets. The burst roller which is positioned at the rear of the machine simply runs quicker than the front drive rollers and creates a snapping or pulling effect on the material, due to the weakened area created by the perforation tool the sheets simply come apart at the overlapping joint. The finished guillotine ready sheets are neatly delivered into the catch tray.
You only need to read through a couple of our customer testimonials to see what real people think of our Multilam machines, they have proved reliable, robust and offer a high quality finish whether you require traditional laminating or foiling.
