Sculptured fluted foilCombination Foiling Dies

Also referred to as fluted, recess or foil embossing dies, these are produced in brass using the CNC process and share all the distinct advantages of flat stamping dies, in terms of durability and precision.

Speedy production combined with accurate reproduction of single or multiple images ensure sharp and crisp foiling results.

Counterforces can be manufactured for CNC engraved dies.  This offers distinct advantages during machine set up, and saves valuable make ready time. They can be produced in a range of thicknesses to suit all types of foiling presses. The dies and counterforces are interchangeable and can be reproduced without complication. This ensures that all recess images give a consistent finish.

The advantages of using combination dies for designs that require the foil image to also be embossed in a single pass are:

By cleverly combining all prodution processes fluted dies can be supplied that incorporate micro etched textures within the emboss detail.

All CNC cut dies and counterforces are supplied complete with register holes and location pins. This reduces machine make ready, clearly saving time and cost which would otherwise be lost due to long machine down times. Counterforces for combination dies are offered to suit all types of presses in the following thicknesses:

  • 0.20mm
  • 0.40mm
  • 0.70mm
  • 1.00mm
  • 1.50mm
