Waalwijk, Netherlands (PressExposure) September 18, 2013 -- ITW Foils is excited to participate at the world's largest event for the label and package printing industry - the Labelexpo Europe 2013 in Brussels.
The Labelexpo provides an excellent platform to highlight the fantastic features ITW Foils and Thermal Films have to offer.
At the ITW Foils stand 6J30 (Hall 6), visitors will have the opportunity to discover the endless possibilities of ITW EcoCast. A revolutionary inline decorative process, UV Film Casing creates rich, high gloss holographic effects on a variety of substrates in both sheet fed and web environments. UV Film Casting is a method of microembossing a holographic image into a UV coating. No material is transferred to the surface--instead the patterned film itself acts as an embossing die that cuts light diffractions into the UV coating as it is being cured. Because there is no actual transfer of a foil or material onto the substrate, the film can be reused several times before new film is needed. UV Casting films are available in a variety of diffraction patterns, similar to hot foils. They can also be customized with a proprietary design for brand identity and security applications. Its small footprint, environmentally friendly operation (Low energy usage, emits no VOCs, casting film is recyclable) makes ITW EcoCast the ideal tool for any graphics business.
Next to UV Casting Films, ITW Foils will also showcase Custom Holography - iSCAN patented by ITW - the world's only source for hi-speed, large format holographic origination.
If dynamic packaging concepts, speed to market, cost effectiveness and a successful market introduction are essential to your brand, allow us to make your project happen in real-time. The proprietary iSCAN - technology coupled with our holographic film embossing capability make ITW - the only true one-stop solution for all your unique holographic needs. Utilization of holographic technology in package design is being established as the benchmark to product and brand managers who are looking for new methods to improve brand positioning and product identity.
iSCAN benefits include:
High-speed origination eliminates time and expense constraints associated with traditional dot matrix holographic methods.
High-speed proofing and print overlays with white.
Large format custom registered holographic patterns and designs uniquely suited for embossing onto film, paper and board.
Computer-to-plate holographic mastering capabilities that streamline the product design-to-production process.
Elimination of unsightly "shim" lines associated with traditional step and repeat systems.
The results: Superior Brand Differentiation
