Foil Saving

Hot foil gives an impressive premium look to any kind of packaging or label - but also defines an impressive cost factor. Especially if the foil usage is low and waste is high. In this cases foil savers help.  Pantec GS Systems foiling units distinguish themselves by their high performance foil saving technology, both for rotary as well as for flat bed systems, allowing a high degree of foil saving in the in-line process without lowering the overall machine performance.

Foil saving on rotary systems

Fast vaccum technology achieves massive foil reduction in-line

For rotary systems the unique Pantec vacuum technology for fast foil movement achieves up to 20 saving cycles per second or 1´200 cycles per minute. The foil can almost be used gapless at high production speeds, resulting in a massive reduction of the foil consumption giving a short payback time of the unit. Depending on the design the ratio of foil saving is typically 60 - 90%. In specialized lines, where 50% or more is hot foiling, a Pantec GS Systems saver may save several EUR 100’000 p.a.
