2011 Therm-o-type NSF A3Pro Foil Press - Inventory #CO038



2011 Therm-o-type NSF A3Pro Foil Press

This Therm-o-type NSF A3Pro Foil Press has been running in production and is in good working condition. Manufactured in 2011, this machine was used for Foil Stamping only. Other capabilities of the machine may require additional parts or accessories that are not included. The NSF A3Pro capabilities include flat foil stamping, blind and foil embossing, die-cutting, “kiss” cutting, perforating, scoring, imprinting, numbering and HSFF™ (high speed foil fusing™). This machine is located 2 miles from the Chicago O'Hare airport and will be shipped via freight truck from that location. Please contact us with any questions.

Introduction to the NSF A3Pro Foil Press

NSF A3Pro capabilities include flat foil stamping, blind and foil embossing, die-cutting, “kiss” cutting, perforating, scoring, imprinting, numbering and HSFF™ (high speed foil fusing™).The NSF A3Pro is designed to fill the needs of greeting card, business card, stationery, invitation and announcement manufacturers and commercial letterpress shops. Using the NSF A3Pro, customers can efficiently produce work at speeds up to 4,500 sheets per hour. This configuration is ideally suited for greeting card manufacturers who are running their work using a two-up, just in time production format.

The NSF A3Pro features a full color display and touch screen interface. Machine timing functions are controlled through an encoder that provides position and timing information to the computer core. Paper registration, foil draw length, counter functions, jam detect/interrupt, double feed detect, speed and impression pressure functions are controlled and/or displayed through the computer/touch screen. Three sensors monitor paper movement through the press. If a jam condition occurs, the machine will automatically drop off impression and stop. Jam condition information will then appear on the control display. Sensors can detect opaque, semi transparent and certain transparent materials without adjustment. The headstop paper sensor is also used to confirm that a sheet is ready to advance into the impression area. If a skip feed condition occurs, the NSF A3Pro will automatically drop off impression. When the next sheet is detected at the headstop, the machine will automatically return to the “On” impression position. The NSF A3Pro will not stop if a skip sheet error occurs.

One feature that has proven popular with operators is the “TDC” and “BDC” (top dead center and bottom dead center) touch screen controls. TDC represents the most closed position of the imprint mechanism. BDC represents the most open position of the imprint mechanism. Using the “TDC”/”BDC” controls, operators can quickly and accurately set the initial impression pressure at the start of each job. This helps to eliminate the potential for smashing dies due to improper impression adjustment during set-up. This control is also useful when pouring a counter as the exact position of the die to the counter foundation can be duplicated as many times as required during the preparation and counter cast procedure.

Customers who run complex foil embossing dies on long runs require that dies remain heated during non-operational periods. A “sleep” mode allows the operator to shut down all machine functions while maintaining a desired die temperature. Customers can batch count on the NSF A3Pro. To use this feature, the operator sets a “batch” quantity and a number of “skip feed” cycles in the touch screen control. Once programmed, the NSF A3Pro will run the desired “batch” quantity then skip feed the selected number of cycles to create a gap between batches on the delivery conveyor.

The standard NSF A3Pro foil system includes dual foil support shafts, dual programmable foil draws, and four foil rewind shafts. Multiple foil draw lengths can be programmed to minimize foil waste. Up to 7.2" diameter foil rolls can be used and foil draw length can be adjusted while the machine is running. The NSF A3Pro features a computer controlled pneumatic centralized lubrication system. Lubrication cycles are activated as required using speed, impression pressure and run/idle time information collected and processed by the computer.

The NSF A3Pro incorporates several important mechanical and electrical safety features. A dedicated 24-volt safety circuit with emergency stops switches; “fail-to-safe relay” and reset button have been installed. All controls and switches mounted to the control panel operate at 24-volts or less. The NSF A3Pro feeder can hold a 32" high pile of stock. This feeder can be pre-loaded while the press is running to minimized down time. The combination of high capacity feeder and pre-loading significantly increases productivity, while reducing operator workload. The NSF A3Pro is the culmination of over eight years of collaborative work between major producers of foil stamped, embossed and die-cut products and THERM-O-TYPE Corporation.
