After RHINO, the paradigm-changing flatbed foil embosser in rotary wine & alcohol label presses, the Swiss company Pantec GS Systems already launches another innovative system for foil printers. SWIFT is one of the most agile birds of the Alps flying along steep ridges. So does the new Pantec foil saver – SWIFT. For rotary foiling SWIFT “flies” along the press’ rail if required for a job change. Pantec GS Systems is about to launch SWIFT after Labelexpo Americas. SWIFT will be available for most of the modern leading printing machines.
SWIFT is designed for fast change over. It has been developed with the advices of specialist printers in Health & Beauty to be versatile for innovative marketing needs, but above all, meeting today’s stringent requirements of small orders. SWIFT is based on Pantec's high performance vacuum saving technology pSave which achieves extremely high frequencies, allowing to run the press at typical Health & Beauty label printing speeds.
A major field of application for SWIFT is Health & Beauty, as their label production shows a very high foil saving potential. Specialists running multiple shifts have profit potentials of hundreds of thousands of Euros per year. They can profit not only from foil saving with hot foil. They profit from reducing foil change stops, thus waste and time of a high value press. Moreover, moving from non-saveable cold foil to hot foil becomes very attractive. Foil saving and therefore less line stops, compensates not only the tooling cost, but creates high additional profits on repeat jobs. Furthermore, it adds competitiveness from the higher quality of hot foil.
