Hand Operated Foil Stamping Machines

Hand-operated foil stamping machines are known as manual foil stampers. With these types of machines, you’ll be running the stamping process by hand. These types of machines have a lever that requires a pulling action to help bring the printing mechanism in contact with the material which needs the foil stamp. When the stamp has been positioned and is achieved, you will then need to remove the stamped object and place a new one ready to be stamped. Manually operated foil stamping machines will have either an automatic foil feeder or a manual foil feeder.

Pneumatic Operated Foil Stamping Machine

The pneumatic operated foil stamping machine runs when actuated or started by the operator. In machines such as this, the use of an air compressor moves the printer head and brings it into contact with the material which requires stamping. Running these machines is quite easy.

Buying a Foil Stamping Machine

When it comes to purchasing a foil stamping machine, there are a few things you may need to keep in mind and consider. These include:

  • Selecting a machine that can handle the quantity and load capacity you’re going to place on it. If you’re looking to stamp a high volume of material, it’s best to choose a pneumatic foil stamping machine over a manual one, to help save time.
  • The material which you want to stamp will also help to determine the type of machine which you will choose. It’s advisable to check which machine is compatible with your selected items. Not all machines can stamp on all materials.
  • Size: countertop and floor models are available in several different sizes and styles. This decision will be determined by how much space you have .
  • Another thing to consider is whether you’ll be going into business or whether you’ll be using it for your own personal items. This will also play a big role in whether you’ll want to get a manual or a pneumatic foil stamping machine, and whether you’ll need more than one to meet the needs of your customers.

As you can see, there are many different options you need to consider when it comes to purchasing a foil stamping machine.
