Pantec updates Rhino foil embossing

Pantec GS Systems has updated its Rhino foil embossing with a new, faster Rhino IIS aimed at the narrow web label market.

This image shows Pantec’s Rhino II running inline with an Omen X-flex narrow web press.

The Rhino is an in-line flatbed multi-foil embossing system targeting the wine and spirits labels market. The original Rhino was launched in 2010, with over 80 installed worldwide, but this has now been updated with the Rhino IIS. This is capable of 30,000 strokes per hour, 70 percent faster than the original machine and 20 percent faster than the Rhino II that was launched two years ago. It can also handle a higher embossing tonnage.

As with the original Rhino, it offers registered 3D foil and micro-embossing in combination with different foil colors, as well as 3D lenses at full speed, all of which can be done in a single pass.

It has a 410 x 410 mm stamping area, with revolvable head, registered hologram streams and 6 independent heating zones.

Peter Frei, Pantec’s CEO says that the Rhino IIS follows the market requirements: “Flatbed stamping is an ‘art’, leaving a lot of space for creativity. The versatility of Rhino offers printers to consult their customers with effects they develop and offer as their unique knowhow. The brand designers like using unique effects. Consequently, more and more they go for eye-catching effects to increase sales. Along with small, low cost tooling and short single pass delivery time, printers make themselves unique to their customers. Both brand owner and printers profit.”

It will be available from February 2018.
