delsa produces machines to automatically perform the hot stamping of plastic items.

What is hot stamping

Hot stamping machinery can be divided into three types:

• flat hot stamping

• rolling hot stamping

• roll-to-roll hot stamping

Flat hot stamping:
this type of machinery is suitable to decorate flat or shaped surfaces, even on large-sized items.
The item to be decorated is moved under a printing head and then held in place during descent and ascent of the head, which is normally driven by pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders.

Here are some examples of items decorated with this technique:
• upper sides of capsules and bottle caps
• casings or parts of domestic appliances
• aesthetic parts of motor vehicles.

Roll-on hot stamping:
this type of machinery is suitable to decorate the side surface of conical, cylindrical and shaped items.
The flat or slightly shaped cliché, keeps still while the item rolls against it through an electric or pneumatic axis dragging. The roles can also be inverted: the piece keeps still and the cliché moves to generate the rolling.

Here are some examples of items decorated with this technique:
• vials
• capsules
• bottles
• flexible hoses

Roll-to-roll hot stamping:
this type of machinery is suitable to decorate items that have raised parts to be decorated against the background. The raised part should be flat or slightly shaped.
The cliché is replaced by a heated roller that rolls on the pieces. Rolling can occur by holding the roller still and moving the pieces or vice versa.

Here are some examples of items decorated with this technique:
• capsules and bottle caps
• logos in the automotive or domestic appliances field

Different multiple heads can be mounted on the same machine. A representative example is the caps and capsules decoration, both on the upper and side surface, by making a flat and a roll printing head work together.

delsa hot stamping machinery normally work with traditional film but can also be equipped to work with heat tranfers.

Beside the construction of hot stamping machines delsa also offers the supply of the needed tools: cliché, film and heat transfers.
