Henglei Produces whole set equipment for full hologram procution lines, include hologram mater shooting, electronic forming, hologram embossing, lamination and coating, cutting and hologram hot stamping transfering. Our hologram machines produce hologram sticker, hologram hot stamping foil, hologram overlay, scratch off hologram and wide web holographic packaging film. In this webpage we briefly introdue how to produce holograms by our machines. For example, how to set up a production line to produce 2 millions pcs security holographic sticker in size of 15mm*15mm a day. To do this, you just need electronic forming machine, hologram hard embosser, lamination machine and automatic die-cutting machine with sheeting and slitting. We also supply more equipment for hologram hot stamping foil production, hologram scratch off hologram, etc.
There're some photoes of hologram machines below. They will help you to understand how do we make holograms. You are welcome to visit our factory or hologram training plant to see how machines running in process of production.

How to Produce Holographic Sticker
Step#1. Master origination shooting machine to record hologram image onto photoresist by laser. Coating silver onto photoresist master to get glass hologram origination.
holographic master shooting system including 2D/3D and Dot-matrix system. 2D/3D hologram system records different color hologram image/text and layers on anti-vibration optical table through optis by He_Cd laser. Dot-matrix system records millions of small holgoram grating dots by laser beam and combines a full holgoram image which is designed on computer.
Step#2. Electronic forming soft tank to duplicate hologram shim from silver coating photoresist. This electronic forming process wil produce master origination shim or small size hologram nickel shim for recombination.
Step#3. Recombiantion machine to press small pcs hologram nickel onto plastic film to get big size plastic holographic master.. Usually, we will recombine dot-matrix hologram and 2D/3D hologram into 6"*6" hologram area master. 2D/3D master system also can work without recombination. After recombination, we have to coating silver onto plastic hologram master again and do step#2 job to get a big size holographic master origination.
Put holographic master origination into hard electronic forming tank to duplicate operation hologram nickel shim for hard embossing. The hard shim duplicated is strong enough for hard embossing.
Step#5. To fix hologram operation shim onto hard hologram embosser to press hologram image onto PET/OPP film to get holographic foil which has metalizing layer or coating layer.
Step#6. Lamination machine/coating machine to coat adhensive onto hologram embossed metallized film. Th hologram sticker foil will be lamiated with releasing liner.
Step#7. Die-cutting machine to cut hologram stickers automaticly and sheeting/slitting.
Step#8. To do serial numbers, etched logo, barcode by numbering machine and laser engraving machine.

holographic master Shooting System
Master shooting System has two type. One is 2D/3D mater shooting System, another is Dot-matrix master shooting System.
2D/3D mater shooting System new type, simple and easy to learn
There're two type of 2D/3D master shooting. One way is to shoot master by H1 glass to make hologram text or image in background. Another way is to shoot master by hologram image maker facility directly.To shoot master by hologram image maker facility directly, all forground image and background image can be shooted in same way(no need to make H1 glass for background first). It's much easily way than to make background by H1 glass. Master shooted by hologram image maker facility also is much shining and clearn without noise wrinkle than the master shooted in another way, especially, on big rainbow area. To shoot master by hologram image maker facility, we need automatic position localization equipment to locate record glass position precisely. To shoot master by H1 for background, we have to control position platform manully.
Two different 2D/3D master shooting, we need two different position localization equipment, one is manual positioning equipment , another is automatic positioning equipment.
We have both type master shooting technology. To shoot master by hologram image maker facility is suggested because it's easier to learn and quality of master made is better.
With 2D/3D master shooting system, we can make 2D/3D, 2D, Flip-Flop, Microtext, Hidden Image, stereogram,
Special Effects, Animation.
Main euipment required for 2D/3D holographic master shooting: Laser, X Y Stage, Optics, Optical table.
