The importance of product presentation in the marketing industry is well known. Labels are crucial for providing information to the buyer, but at a modest additional expense, a beautiful label with exquisite embellishments may also give the goods a sensation of high quality and elegance. Enhancing the capabilities of stamping machines is required to keep up with the increasing velocity of the production lines in the modern manufacturing industry and to offer new opportunities for customization. It’s in this context of improvements and refinements that this work takes place. The thesis was developed during an internship at Studio D, the firm that designs the mechanics of the machines produced by Cartes. The The aim of this work is to study possible upgrades for the existing hot stamping machines. The main focus of this work is centred on two objectives: first, evaluating the pressing forces generated by this machine and characterising how the mat used in the stamping process reacts to such forces. Second, propose a new conformation for the press mechanism in order to improve the rigidity and performance of the machines. The first objective is reached through a combined approach: the mat is crudely characterized with experimental data, while the frame of the machine is studied through FEM analysis. The results obtained are combined and used to upgrade a worksheet that allows to estimate the forces exerted by the machines. The second objective is reached with the proposal of new, improved designs for the main components of the machines.
