Toggle Hooks and Keys
Toggle Hooks are widely available on the international market from varying sources, but in our experience there are only a small number of manufacturers with extensive experience to produce good tooling.
Insight Graphics currently supply and recommend Toggle Hooks from Profoil Systems Limited, based in the United Kingdom. Profoil Systems have been manufacturing their own toggle hooks for over 20 years and have built up a reputation of reliability and value for money in over 60 countries worldwide.
When backed up by the registration accuracy features of Insight Graphics Systems Die Co-Ordinator, a business can save endless hours of unnecessary setup time and vastly improve efficiency and workload.
In addition to standard toggle hooks, Profoil also offer a “low profile”, shorter, tooling to accommodate slimmer honeycomb chases of some manufacturers – or likewise for chases which have been refurbished and re-ground flat once more.
The latest addition to the Profoil range is the Premium Toggle Hook which has been designed specifically for use on flatbed designed machinery, which generally operates at higher speeds, temperatures. The new addition has a stronger material composition to combat these conditions in order to add longevity to the consumable item. Profoil backs up its reputation with a Toggle Hook Quality Guarantee and all the accessories needed for operating the tooling.
Profoil’s full range of Toggle Hooks are available for worldwide distribution and suitable for use with flatbeds, cylinders and platen (clamshell) presses and many machine manufacturers such as Gietz, Bobst, MK, SBL, Heidelberg, Yawa, Yoco, Brausse and many more.

We are saving on average 60 to 90 minutes for each foil make-ready using the Die Co-Ordinator, due to its ability to download a PDF file to machine and register the job to a digital Keyline giving the exact die location. Our savings per job well exceeds the 50% estimate given at time of purchase.

The Die Co-Ordinator allows us to do the make-readies off line, thereby saving production time and utilization as well. Our experience to date is that our make-readies have been more than cut in half. The savings are significant.

The Di Co-Ordinator has now been in operation for more than 7 years in a 2 shift operation. We estimate the average savings to more than 2000 working hours per year for machines with an hourly operation cost ranging from €80 to €120.
