Hologram and Patch Insetting

Holograms and Patches are popular refining features to achieve a prestigious look on labels or packagings. Furthermore they can be part of amazing security features  when combined with other printing technologies . Pantec GS Systems provides insetting technologies in rotary as well as in flat bed.

Rotary hologram insetting

Massless foil movement for high precision and speed

The massless vacuum technology of Pantec GS Systems allows high precision hologram placement at highest speed. The hologram streams are driven by very fast, individual servo drives and a slight vacuum. Despite the very fast movement with up to 20 cycles/s, the great absence of inertia forces by the vacuum technology allows best register for insetting the individual hologram on the web.
