ROQ Foil – the ultimate foil machine
ROQ Foil is the module that ROQ created to apply foil in the workflow of the screen-printing machine. Foil is in the category of what in the screen-printing world calls “special effects”. Special effects are some unusual technics applied during the screen printing process that give the finished product a different look, feeling and touch. This is a way of increasing dramatically the value of a piece. Some examples of these technics are glitter, 3D, flock and in this specific case foil.

Foil has the look of a metallic paper. It is “stamped” on a textile surface by using heat. Usually this is done using a heat press and an operator dedicated to this task. With ROQ’s technology you save 90% of the time and all the labour cost. This is achieved because our ROQ Foil works connected with any ROQ screen printing machine. This eliminates the need for a dedicated operator. The process is as follows:

In one screen it is applied the glue on top of the fabric on the exact spot you want the foil. Next the fabric goes into the ROQpress foil. Each ROQ oil, depending on the design to be printed, can apply up to 3 foil colors in one passage. The mechanical process is very simple. The temperature is set by the operator at the beginning of the run. Then the ROQ Foil puts the foil on top of the fabric and then a heat press applies the necessary pressure and heat so that the foil adheres to the textile surface.

ROQ holds the patent for the ROQ Foil.

With the ROQ Foil applying foil is no longer an expensive and lengthy operation. No labour and the time are spent on this process since it is embedded in the workflow ofthe screen printing machine. Making this a very fast and profitable process. The added value of the finished pieces will be much higher.
