The label substrate often is traditional Japanese handmade paper, the printing and stamping of which is extremely demanding, not to mention the sheet feeding process. The experts at the Takakuwa Design Center develop individual designs for all the famous Japanese rice wine producers, focusing on both tradition and state-of-the art technology.

The new Gietz FSA 870 is the ideal complement to the range of machinery at the plant in Isikawa Ken and adds the capability of foil stamping up to 560 x 870 mm size. The foil stamping of the finest characters, combined with embossing on a rough surface of handmade paper requires thorough expert knowledge and calls for high quality stamping machinery, stamping dies, and stamping foils.

Takakuwa’s decision to purchase a Gietz FSA 870 Compact was taken after intensive, complex trials in cooperation with Iwai Tsusho, Gietz exclusive distributor in Japan.
