Hot stamping

Efficient decoration of two-dimensional surfaces

Maximum precision for your plastic surfaces: From color gradients to razor-sharp decors in the highest photo quality, you can put your stamp on your surfaces to promote your brand. You can refine all or part of your products in a single operation. Even sustainable chromium-based metallization is possible with this process. Benefit from maximum flexibility and precision. What’s more, our decorations don’t affect the recyclability of the surfaces.



Vertical stamping

With vertical stamping, the decor is transferred to molded plastic parts via a heatable embossing stamp in short and fast upward and downward movements. For this purpose, part after part is pushed fully automatically under the rising and lowering moving embossing stamp. The shape of the stamp determines the form and appearance of the decoration. This method is particularly suitable for large-scale decoration and raised decorative structures.



Roller embossing

During the roller embossing process, a conveyor belt transports the molded plastic parts along under the heatable embossing wheel. At the same time, the material with the wafer-thin coating in the desired decor runs over the embossing wheel. The motifs are transferred piece by piece to the plastic by the continuous rolling movement and the applied pressure. This technical process can be used, in particular, for large areas, profiles, and sprayed contours or areas.
