DM-MAXLINER - TACTILE DIGITAL FINISHING

Our DM-MAXLINER machine system breaks the barriers of digital finishing: A clever combination of metallization and coating turns digital printing into a unique haptic relief experience and gives sheets a tangible 3D look. Realized with the support of our subsidiary Steinemann DPE, more than 40 years of machine development experience merge together in our unique flexible DM-MAXLINER.

DM-MAXLINER FOR EXCELLENT METALLLIZATION

As an all-in-one solution for digital finishing our smart machine architecture brings metallization, spot coating and relief varnishing together. As a result, you benefit from completely new design opportunities. Furthermore, high precision finishing thanks to a highly accurate registration system, automatic re-adjustment of bowing, and time-saving machine operation and maintenance reduces a good amount of workload. But what about sustainable aspects? Our DM-MAXLINER shines as the most efficient foil saving module in digital printing. Our secret: a foil pull-back system in combination with a flexible stamping wheel.

SO WHY CHOOSE THE DM-MAXLINER?

  • Matte and gloss spot-coating in one run
  • Haptic relief effects
  • Flexible reliefs by using different coating thicknesses, including on one sheet
  • High printing speed
  • Large format up to sheet size B1+
  • Top print quality at 600 dpi resolution
  • Short set-up and changeover times
  • Little cleaning required
  • No additional tool costs
  • Reduced waste thanks to a smart foil saving system
  • Swiss made: 40 years of experience in mechanical engineering from Steinemann Technology AG

DM-JETLINER - A GLOSSY LOOK ALONG THE ENTIRE LINE

Whether deployed in mass customization, individualization, small runs, special editions or entire product families – our DM-JETLINER inline enhancement module lets you refine your packaging and personalize your jobbing work to fit the customer‘s specifications. There‘s no need to compromise on flexibility even as you offer real metal effects in digital printing.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

DM-JETLINER lets you transfer metallization effects onto paper and label materials during digital printing. The transfer process can be integrated seamlessly inline into your digital printing machine — upstream from the digital color printing. Once the metallization is applied with a UV-curing adhesive to the unprinted substrate, the PET carrier is removed, and the substrate
can be overprinted within the printing machine.


4 COMPONENTS FOR DIGITAL TRANSFER SUCCESS

DM-JETLINER can transfer the desired metallization onto paper or a broad range of label materials as part of the digital printing process, while also harnessing the full benefits of our economical digital all-in-one approach. With our customized DIGITAL METAL® solutions we offer you all components from one single source  - from digital printing machines to glossy digital transfer coatings and customized inks to efficiency-boosting software and outstanding service, perfectly matched to each other. For you, our sophisticated concept opens up new perspectives and interesting new fields of business ready to be fascinated by extreme brilliance, world-class resolutions and uncomplicated overprinting along the entire line.


SO WHY CHOOSE THE DM-JETLINER ? 

  • All-in-one solution for digital finishing 
  • Easy integration in production chain
  • Speed to market
  • Follows production speed of the digital printing press
  • Consignment stock of consumables/ pay-per-stamp model
  • Automatic consumables reordering
  • Customized metallic finishing for individual labels/packaging or various label/packaging campaigns
  • Attractive embellishment for small runs, special editions or different product series
  • Impressive high gloss effects
  • Huge variety of colors and metallic shades feasible thanks to overprintability
  • Almost no limits for creative design
  • Sustainable finishing process with no stamping dies, no extra test runs, minimized set-up time and a smart foil-saving unit 
  • Last but not least: late stage customization

Residual PET material turned into injection molding material

Leonhard Kurz has developed a process for recycling residual PET materials. This enables the carrier foils from Kurz transfer finishing products to be returned to the material cycle. The recycled material can be used as an injection molding material for high-value applications.

Closing the material cycle: The recycling concept developed by Kurz provides for the collection and shipment, or pickup of the used Kurz transfer products at the customer, and conversion of the material into new injection molding material in the company's own recycling facility.

Faster and more economical finishing with cold transfer

Whether it be inventory levels, setup times or yields – now more than ever, print shops need to pull out all the stops to remain competitive. To enable maximum cost efficiency in cold transfer finishing, Leonhard Kurz has developed a new cold transfer formulation. With its new KPS SX+ cold transfer product, the company is offering its customers a versatile grade that eliminates the need to use several products for different finishes. The range of applications is large. KPS SX+ is equally suitable for conventional and UV systems with their respective adhesives and inks, for different substrates, for food packaging and foil saving modules, and for large as well as filigree motifs.

Inspiration for the world of packaging design

What topics are on people's minds around the world? And how are these ex-pressed in design? The trend team at Leonhard Kurz has been following the spirit of the times for nine years. The results of the current investigation show that people want one thing above all; the world should become a better place. The KURZ team identified four design trends from this research and present them in the 'Box next to Box. two' packaging concept, which contains four expressively decorated paper boxes, each representing a trend. Eight new colors and three new decors for hot-stamping finishing have been developed for the current trends.
