Foil Stamping, Die-Cutting, and Embossing Machines

Lifetimes. With an s. That’s how long our foil stamping machines last.

We offer a wide range of Kluge foil stamping, die-cutting, and embossing products, available at different price points and sizes to fit your company’s unique budget and needs. But each of our machines have at least three things in common:

  • They’re easy to use.
  • They last lifetimes.
  • They produce high-quality, well-built printed products that your customers (and their customers) can count on.

Our machines are multi-generational investments. We know you need a product that you can put on your floor and set in motion without a lot of fuss or extensive user training. You want to minimize maintenance and repair. And you want to guard against customer quality complaints, the likes of which you might have encountered when using substandard foil stampers or die-cutters in the past.

We understand those needs, and we’ve hand-crafted machines that meet each one of them.

Our Foil Stamping, Die-Cutting and Embossing Machines

Every Kluge foil stamping machine is designed to solve a problem for your business, meaning they are efficient, resilient, modern, and lend themselves to a wide variety of printed products.

The EHD Series (14×22): The Workhorse of the Industry

The EHD embodies Kluge’s history as the global go-to for foil stamping machinery. For more than a quarter-century, it has been the standard by which all presses in its class are measured. It’s even earned a nickname: “the workhorse of the industry.”

Rugged, dependable, and easy to operate, it gets the job done — excellently, consistently, and cost-effectively.

But this isn’t the same machine it was in the 20th century. We’ve made improvements commensurate with technology.

Today’s EHD offers speeds up to 3,300 impressions per hour and comes with delayed delivery, allowing it to accommodate sheets up to 17″x 24.75″ (431mm x 628mm) in size, with up to 40 square inches of die area.

Advanced features include:

  • Patented Delayed Dwell technology, which allows the EHD to start on impression sooner, bottom out, and remain on impression longer­ (thereby doubling impression time with no loss of production speed and assuring flawless foil separation from the stock)
  • A new, optional, freestanding mobile electronics console, which puts all the press operations in one place for easy access
  • Mechanical Foil Control System, allowing a wide array of foil draw and coverage with highly accurate registration between images
  • Many of the same advanced features found in our larger foil stamping, die-cutting, and embossing machines
  • Much More

The EHF Series (14×22): “The Workhorse+”

This next-generation iteration of the EHD (above) offers all the same features within a stronger main frame, plus stronger platen bolts and heavier side arms for greater impression strength. This press nearly triples the EHD’s preload pressure.
