Hot-foil stamping with Prä machines

PräGnant

Foil-blocking press

The PräGnant machine is a foil-blocking press specifically designed for the needs of craft bookbinders and library binders. It is used wherever ”one-off“ titles or names are to be blocked.

The PräGnant  machine is a foil blocking press specifically designed for the needs of craft bookbinders and library binders.
The typeholders are self-centering and, by means of a quick-acting clamp, they allow an extremely easy and quick change of single type or complete lines. This qualifies the PräGnant  to be used wherever ”one-off“ titles are to be blocked.
The book case (or other product) is placed upright into the machine, so that the blocking process can be observed all the time and if necessary be repeated without touching the case or taking it out of the machine. Expensive faulty blockings are therefore eliminated.
The good view onto the case while blocking makes the machine also suitable for special gilding work such as  blocking ornaments.
The PräGnant  - a unique machine for a wide range of applications, including bookbinding, pattern-book manufacturing and gold-blocking departments.
Moreover, the quick change of type as well as the easy handling of the machine help to reduce costs in the field of gold blocking. With its wide range of accessories which are to be chosen according to customer's individual requirements, the PräGnant is extremely versatile.
For embossing, the required accessory, e. g. a typeholder with the character type to be embossed, has to be fitted and heated up to the desired stamping temperature by thermostat. Next the material to be embossed is placed on the lower feeder guide bar of the table and centered. The desired embossing height can be set using the handwheel.
Now the embossing can be carried out with a short, hard press on the hand lever.
