Bag Printing Fixture pdf
The Hot Stamping Bag Fixture is designed to foil stamp shopping bags of
variable sizes after the bags are made. This system consists of the
following two components:
- The Raising and Lowering Arm
- The Bag Support Fixture
This unique method of hot stamping bags
allows the bag to be imprinted unfolded. This means there will be only
one thickness of paper under the print head. Make-ready is fast and
easy. When the fixture is down it rests on the machine base. This
enables the operator to use the full pressure (15 tons) without fixture
flex. This also makes it possible to hot stamp bold, large coverage
areas on both coated and uncoated bag material.
Setting up for different size bags can be
done very easily. Because of the "Erector set" design, fixture
components can be changed to accommodate various bag heights and widths.
It is also possible to have individual fixtures for the more common bag
sizes. A complete fixture can be changed in five minutes or less.
It’s as simple as
one, two, three.
- Operator loads the bag on the raised fixture.
- Operator cycles the hot stamp machine.
- Operator removes the printed bag.
When the operator cycles
the machine the following sequence automatically occurs:
- The Bag Fixture lowers.
- The Hot Stamp Head moves down and prints.
- The Hot Stamp Head returns to the up position.
- The Bag Fixture raises to the home position.
The Bag Support Fixture
is designed like an "Erector Set" and consists of the
- Delrin Feet
- Base Plate
- Top Plate
