Diversified Graphic Machinery is showcasing its exclusive, Foildex in-line cold foil system, Cast and Cure holographic effect system, hot foil stamping, die-cutting technologies, and complete lineup of print enhancement capabilities in Booth 2257 at GRAPH EXPO.
“Following a successful drupa with a significant sale of our exclusive Foildex in-line cold foil and UV Cast and Cure systems to Utah Paper Box in Salt Lake City, we are anticipating considerable interest in DGM print enhancement equipment for the global packaging market at GRAPH EXPO,” says Michael DeBard, President, Diversified Graphic Machinery. “Our theme for the Chicago show, ‘Cold Foil. Hard Facts,’ sets the stage for DGM to present the most compelling cold foil savings available in the industry.”
Serving the U.S. market since 2000, Diversified Graphic Machinery expanded into Europe with the establishment of a manufacturing facility in Torino, Italy. The Torino factory will be used to manufacture Foildex Cold Foil systems as well as Filmdex UV Cast and Cure systems and will allow DGM to better serve global packaging market, according to DeBard.
DGM cold foil system
The DGM Foildex system allows companies to use cold foil efficiently and profitably by minimizing foil waste and bringing foil cost for cold foil applications to hot foil levels. Foildex offers proprietary control systems that produce the best foil laydown in the industry with superb overprinting. With large area coverage and miniscule reverse out, the system gives a new dimension to print enhancement. Coupled with the ability to produce holographic images with the DGM Filmdex UV film Cast and Cure in-line with cold foil and print, gives packaging printers a powerful sales tool and a unique niche in the marketplace.
UV cast and cure technology
The Cast and Cure holographic effect, exclusively available from DGM is achieved with a lithographic process utilizing UV technology and a nano-embossing casting film with a controlled system.
Cast and Cure is a sustainable manufacturing process in which the Cast and Cure film is fully recyclable. The Cast and Cure effect is created using a recyclable UV coating or UV varnish and does not emit any harmful VOC’s. Cast and Cure also reduces your overall carbon footprint.
