Sakurai, a provider of sheetfed screen printing technology, will introduce the LQM 105 in-line hot foil stamper to the North American market in booth 1420 at Printing United 19 in Dallas.

First launched at the Sakurai Factory Open House in Gifu, Japan, the LQM 105 was also featured in the Sakurai Graphic Systems Corporation exhibit at FESPA last Spring.

At Printing United, Sakurai will conduct live demonstrations of a Maestro MS-102AX cylinder screen press equipped with a Natgraph UV dryer, stacker and new LQM 105 in-line hot foil stamper. The ScreenFoil LQM 105 aims to bring a “new level of flexibility, quality and performance” when combined with any size or vintage Sakurai screen press, the company explains, and is designed for PSP, folders, leaflets, business cards, loyalty cards, magazines, book covers, packaging, promotional items, labels, roll-to-roll, greeting card, automotive, appliance and plastic card applications.

The featured Sakurai Maestro MS-102AX is a suitable screen press for a myriad of specialty finishing applications such as specialty effects foil, glitter, soft touch, flood, soft spot coating and more, it adds. The 29 5/8” x 41 1/2” MS-102AX operates at speeds up to 4,000 IPH and accepts stock from .003” to .032” thick. The Maestro is capable of printing on a range of substrates, such as plastic film for electronic applications, membrane switches, and display panels, touch screens as well as paper, board and foil.

Sakurai experts from the United States and Japan will be on hand at Printing United to assist booth visitors with designing a fully automated screen printing, drying and curing system, including LED-UV and now ScreenFoil hot foil finishing for their specific requirements.
