Simon Rumble, global business development manager-digital foiling, Kurz said, “We have installed four Kurz DM Jetliners and all are functioning well. All the installed four Jetliners are integrated with HP Indigo digital presses. We are hopeful that the integration will work well with other available digital printing presses in the market as well but not confirmed because we haven’t tried yet.”

The DM-Jetliner is suitable for self-adhesive labels made from a wide variety of plastics and coated papers, and processes roll widths of 150- to 350-mm. The key feature of DM-liner finishing is its flat, colour printing equivalent application of the metallisation, which makes problem-free multi-coloured overprinting possible. Thanks to the non-bulkiness of the coating, DM-liner finishing is also predestined for use in web-fed printing. Rolls in any required thickness can be finished.

The Kurz solution also offers diffractive designs and continuous holograms. These serve not only as decorative eye-catchers, but also provide a barrier to counterfeiting.

Continuous feed digital printing is the ideal solution for meeting the increasing demand in the labels segment for personalisation and numbering, short runs and versioning, right through to individualized designs. When up-stream integrated into HP Indigo narrow web printing machines, the DM-Jetliner fulfils these requirements with highly decorative results.

For commercial printing, a new version of the DM-Luxliner can be used off-line for HP Indigo B2 sheet-fed presses including the HP Indigo 12000 HD, HP Indigo 12000 and HP Indigo 10000 digital press.

A 2,600-kg machine can run at the speed of 75-m/min.
