The INDEX™ System – for Polyfuze Graphics
The INDEX™ System is an add-on component system that has been developed for retrofitting an existing hot stamp machine setup to easily incorporate thye application of Polyfuze Graphics, if it is not currently accomodating for our graphics process.
The INDEX System also was made for the repeatable placement of the Polyfuze graphic in a precise manner. “INDEX” System sensors are precise, meaning that every Polyfuze graphic stamped will be repeatable during your decorating cycles.
This unit will mount to most brands of Hot Stamp equipment and can be mounted on the left or right hand side, opposite from the foil take-up system. The end user will need to provide brackets and mounting holes in their existing press construction to accept the “INDEX”.
The INDEX System is a self-contained unit that requires 120 volt power and a press that has a working “Dwell Timer” and Motorized Foil Advance system. Please note that the “INDEX” will not work on some older presses that have missing foil take-up systems, or use an air ratchet advance system, or hand crank system.
Photo Eye Registration
The photo eye that is included with our INDEX™ System, is used for detection of Polyfuze Graphics registration marks. Once the photo eye detects the registration mark, it sends a signal to the internal braking mechanism stopping the pull of the carrier film by the take-up motor. Our photo eye brand is a MARK•EYE®, and is designed to see our printed registration marks on a continuous web. The “one-touch” set-up enables the sensor to easily be adjusted with a single push of a button.
The Photo Eye provides:
- Precision detection of Polyfuze registration marks
- An included 6′ cable
- Easy one button setup
- Remote autosetting
- High Accuracy for repeatable results
Upon the proper installation of the INDEX, you will have years of repeatable production from this robust unit placing Polyfuze Graphics on your products. Polyfuze Graphics Corp. also offers an optional adjustable adapter bracket at an additional charge that may make your installation easier.
