Foil Fusers – THERM-O-TYPE Corp. – Foil fusing is a well proven process used to apply foil to toner image areas that have been imprinted with either a laser printer or a copy machine.
The FT-10 is a hand fed fuser designed for limited production applications. FT-10 features include 12.6″ wide maximum paper width, manual impression control, foil unwind and rewind tension adjustment, electronic speed and temperature range controls.
The FT-10 can support a single 500′ foil roll wound on a standard 1″ core.
The introduction of the hand fed FT-10, Manual and Automatic Foil-Tech models have made foil fusing a practical process. Using THERM-O-TYPE foil fusing equipment and supplies, flat foil jobs can be produced without the need to purchase a foil stamping die or expensive foil stamping equipment. No special makeready supplies or skills are required to produce beautiful foil stamping using THERM-O-TYPE foil fusing models.
The FT-10 can also be used with the Freedom Foil Process that allows foil text and graphics to be fused over a toner background. The Freedom Foil Process has proven especially important for customers producing soft and hard book covers, prototype packaging (boxes) and greeting cards. Scratch off foil products can also be produced on the FT-10 using the Freedom Foil Process and Scratch Off Foil Laminating Film.
