Foil fusing is a process used to apply foil to toner image areas that have been imprinted with either a laser printer or a copy machine. The Therm-O-Type FT-10 Foil Fuser is a hand fed fuser designed for short run production applications. FT-10 features include 12.6" wide maximum paper width, manual impression control, foil unwind and rewind tension adjustment, electronic speed and temperature range controls.
Using Therm-O-Type foil fusing equipment and supplies, flat foil jobs can be produced without the need to purchase a foil stamping die or expensive foil stamping equipment. No special make ready supplies or skills are required to produce beautiful foil stamping.
The FT-10 can also be used with the Freedom Foil Process that allows foil text and graphics to be fused over a toner background. The Freedom Foil Process has proven especially important for customers producing soft and hard book covers, prototype packaging (boxes) and greeting cards.
Scratch off foil products can also be produced on the FT-10 using the Freedom Foil Process and Scratch Off Foil Laminating Film.
The Therm-O-Type FT-10 uses a 500' length roll of foil wound on a standard 1" core. Foil is produced and sold in 24" wide rolls with a 1" core diameter.
An optional Foil Cutter will allow you to custom slit these 24" wide rolls to the specific widths to match your specific project.
For a small additional charge, the 24" wide rolls can be custom slit to the desired width rolls.
Note: When rolls are custom slit, you must purchase the entire 24" wide cut roll
