There're two way to produce hologram hot stamping foil, hard embossing and soft embossing.


Hard Embossing to produce Hologram Hot Stamoing Foil :

This is simple way to make narrow web (160mm in width) hologram hot stamping foil. It's widely used in Europe and America.

To produce it, following machines are necessary.



Step 1. holographic master Shooting System to make holographic master origination.

Master shooting System has two type. One is 2D/3D mater shooting System, another is Dot-matrix master shooting System.

2D/3D mater shooting System new type, simple and easy to learn

There're two type of 2D/3D master shooting. One way is to shoot master by H1 glass to make hologram text or image in background. Another way is to shoot master by hologram image maker facility directly.To shoot master by hologram image maker facility directly, all forground image and background image can be shooted in same way(no need to make H1 glass for background first). It's much easily way than to make background by H1 glass. Master shooted by hologram image maker facility also is much shining and clearn without noise wrinkle than the master shooted in another way, especially, on big rainbow area. To shoot master by hologram image maker facility, we need automatic position localization equipment to locate record glass position precisely. To shoot master by H1 for background, we have to control position platform manully.

Two different 2D/3D master shooting, we need two different position localization equipment, one is manual positioning equipment , another is automatic positioning equipment.

We have both type master shooting technology. To shoot master by hologram image maker facility is suggested because it's easier to learn and quality of master made is better.

With 2D/3D master shooting system, we can make 2D/3D, 2D, Flip-Flop, Microtext, Hidden Image, stereogram,
Special Effects, Animation.

Main euipment required for 2D/3D holographic master shooting: Laser, X Y Stage, Optics, Optical table.

He-Cd laser

Laser objective and refference beam match together after the objective beam go through artwork. Hologram image is recording on photoresist.


Photoresist Silvering

After your make hologram image onto photoresist, next step is to do silver coating onto photoresist glass. It's easy, but important step for furtther hologram production.
The photoresist should be clean first. Otherwise, the silvering process will face problem. After cleaning, the photoresist will be put into small container for silvering. There's chemical in the container. We also can spray the silver onto photoresist, the result is same.

Step 3. Electronic Forming Machine to copy hologram nickel master and nickel operation shim

This equipment is consisted of electronic forming tank and controller. It's designed for the replication of holographic nickel shims by means of an electroforming process. It consists of the electro-deposition of nickel on a model (silver coated glass or nickel shim master) capable of conducting electric current. When the deposition is completed, it is possible to separate the newly copied child nickel holographic master shim from the mother nickel which has an mirror hologram image

Electronic forming equipment. Soft and hard tank make hologram nickel master origination and operation nickel shim.

The aim of this electronic formation is to copy the hologram from photoresist glass which has hologram imaged recordred, hologram imaged recombined onto PE film, or provide enough quantity operation shims for the embossing machines.

holographic master origination is made by soft tank. This nickel hologram shim is copied from photoresist. There's brown photoresist glue coating still on the surface of nickel shim. We have wash it away.Wash photoresist glue away and clean holographic master origination shim and dry it.

After hologram photoresist glass master shooted by laser beam with 2D/3D master shooting system(or, hologram recombined into big size on plastic film) and slivering coating process, we have to put the hologram glass master into soft electronic forming tank to produce holographic master origination. After 90 minutes electronic forming, we'll get one hologram shim copy which is called nickel holographic master origination(mother master) from the glass master(or plastic master). Then we put the nickel holographic master origination into another hard electronic forming tank which can duplicate another piece operation hologram shim which is a little bit harder than soft shim for hologram embossing.

Above photo is hologram mother master origination shim. We'll put it in hard tank to copy hologram nickel operation shim for hologrma embossing.

How to select Hot Stamping Foil?

1. Choice of hot stamping foil

There're a variety of types of hot stamping foil , applied to different purposes, in accordance with the relevant technical guidelines to choose the right hot stamping foil . We have lots generic design hologram hot stamping foil in wallpaper design and with register mark as well. We can produce customized design hologram hot stamping foil according to customer-specific packaging stamping characteristics and requirements . After choosing the model of hot stamping foil , stamping temperature, pressure and time stamping also should be set according to actual needs.

2. Hot stamping temperature

When hot stamping temperature is too low , the gilt after stamping film has poor adhesion. When stamping temperature is too high , the hologram image will get white and gloss. So engineer can use thermometer to measure the actual temperature of the surface of hologram hot stamping foil gilt layer. Sometimes the tempreture show on hot stamping equipment has different data. We cannot only rely on the instrument display. Different hot stamping etching area in different locations sometimes produce unacceptable temperature deviations too. In addition, when the equipment in hot stamping process, the temperature is lower than the shutdown temperature . Etching temperature difference between different locations is also crucial for the quality of stamping .

3 . Hot stamping time

For some good performance stamping machines, hot stamping time (referring to time that the hot stamping mold contact the back side of hot stamping foil ) , is independent of the stamping speed independently adjustable . For the simple structure stamping machine , stamping speed up the pace would mean to shorten the inevitable imprint of time , in this case can only change the stamping speed time to get the right impression .

4, Hot stamping pressure

When hot stamping pressure is too low, the hologram transfer effect will be poor, particularly gets serious for material such as thick paper, embossed paper or leather. Similarly, The pressure between etching mold and t the substrate surface uniformity is also very important. So before hot stamping on the substrate, to adjust the position of mold and material is very important.
