Variable foiling for flexo and digital: Kurz

Kurz is set to launch a digital cold foiling system at Labelexpo next week, which it says will enable variable data to be used in the foiling process, meaning every label can be different.

The DM-Liner UV-Ink Roll-to-Roll system comes in built-on and built-in configurations, for conventional narrow web and digital label presses respectively. According to Kurz Australia’s Dave Murphy, the system uses inkjet heads to print adhesive onto the substrate.

“We print the data in the glue, nip the foil over it, and then it is UV cured and stripped,” he said.

The system will make its trade show debut at Labelexpo. The built-on unit will be exhibited in conjunction with Nilpeter, and the built-in unit with the Mlabel press from Mprint.

“We have had a fait bit of interest so far, and we will get more after more people see it,” said Murphy. “The main areas of focus are for short runs and variable data – there is no changeover or flexo plates necessary, so every label can be different.”
