Magnesium hot stamping dies
Magnesium is a metal characterized by great heat transfer, witch is a very good feature in the process of hot foil stamping. Dies produced out of magnesium are primarily used as flat plates. The advatages of magnesium dies include low price and short time of production, with quality results.
Magnesium represents the ideal solution for short and middle-run print jobs. The durability of these dies depends mainly on the way of their usage. If handled adequately, magnesium dies can go from 50.000 to even 300.000 prints.
Practice has shown that these dies are especially good when smaller surfaces are being printed, and the design itself isn’t too complex.
For larger dimension tools, we will calculate the deformation with the provided work temperature of the die. You are delivered a die with an ideal register to the earlier printed areas.
