What Is Hot Stamping?
The hot stamping process includes a hot stamping press, a hot stamping die or type, and a hot stamping foil. The hot stamping press heats up the die or type, the marking cycle starts when the press engages the heated die or type with the foil and presses the foil in contact with the part to be marked. The press then disengages at the end of the marking cycle leaving behind a crisp, permanent, ink mark on the part.
Benefits of Hot Stamping
Hot stamping is a flexible process allowing the user to mark different materials inlcuding most plastics, rubber, leather, fabrics and paper.
Hot stamping is a fluid-less process that eliminates inks and other consumables. Hot stamping is a very simple, robust, and reliable marking process. Load a die into the hot stamping press, add a piece or roll of hot stamping foil, fixture your part and make your mark.
Durable Technologies hot stamping foils produce a permanent direct part mark that will last for years under even the toughest of conditions.
The image on the die is created by Durable Technologies using graphics files created using all of the common file types.
Dies can be made of the many materials inlcuding magnesium, brass, and steel. Depending on your requirements for mark depth, quantity of marks, budget, and press operation Durable Technologies will make a hot stamping die material recommendation that will meet your needs.
