Commonly, there are three different types of hot foiling machines, depending on the type of operation.

These are: Flat-flat, Round-flat, and,Round-round

Flat-flat Foil Stamping Machines:

The foil dies are either attached to a honeycomb-shaped plate for variable positioning, or on a flat metal plate if the positions are fixed. The medium and the foil are brought in between the plate and a counter plate that is fixed under it.

In the case of embossed foiling, the lower plate consists of projections to form the embossed design when the plates are pressed together.

The main advantage of flat foil stamping is that it is easy to set up and the tools and parts for it are easily available in the market.

Round-flat Foil Stamping Machines:

Round-flat foil stamping machines have a rotating cylinder in place of the stationary flat counter plate present in the flat-flat foil stamping machine.

Pressure is applied horizontally across the rotating cylinder and the foil is thus pressed against the medium, transferring the foil design onto it.

The advantage of this type of foil stamping machine is that they are a perfect solution for smaller jobs with few pieces.

Round-round Foil Stamping Machines:

These machines work on a similar principle as printing presses. Both the sides of the machine have rotating cylinders that rotate in opposite directions. The foil, as well as the medium, are brought together between the two cylinders, and the cylinders are pressed together to apply pressure.

This type of foil stamping machine can rotate to very high speeds and can be used for very intricate designs. It is perfect for producing highly complex foiling effects on the medium.
