Hot-foil stamping with Prä machines

PräGnant XS

Foil-blocking press

The PräGnant XS is a manual foil-blocking press for one-off titles and name stampings.

The PräGnant XS is a manual foil-blocking press for one-off titles and name stampings.
The book case (or other stamping products) is placed upright into the machine so that the blocking process may be observed all the time and – if necessary – be corrected or repeated. Expensive faulty blockings are therefore eliminated.
The good view onto the product makes the machine also suitable for other individual works (gilding, blocking ornaments etc.).
The quick change of type as well as the easy handling of the machine and its accuracy  allow high-quality stampings.

The PräGnant XS is equipped with an electrically heated, self-centering typeholder with 90 mm width and a thermostat to control the temperature of the typeholder. Standard delivery also includes 1 angle plate support, 30 mm to stamp on ready books, 1 small magnet to hold the product, 1 stainless steel ruler, 1 pair of plastic tweezers and a starter set of hot-stamping foils.

First, the characters of the title to be stamped are put into the typeholder by means of tweezers. Then the typeholder is fixed in the machine and is heated by thermostat. Now the product support bar is adjusted to the required height and the product to be stamped is placed on to the bar. Then the stamping depth has to be adjusted. The stamping is processed by holding the foil against the product and moving forward the stamping lever.

Besides the standard version, the machine is also available as Type PräGnant XS-110  for the US and Japanese market. This model is equipped with a heated typeholder and multi-purpose thermostat for 110 V.
