The KPW XU cold foil grade, a versatile go-to for narrow-web printing, has been displayed for the first time at Labelexpo. According to Kurz, this cold foil is ideally suited for overprinting and delivers optimal decoration results, both for large-area and fine designs.
A further development is the availability of Lumafin, a semi-transparent stamping foil specifically for web-fed printing. It allows under-printed designs to shine through, covers them with a shimmering gloss, and creates an extraordinary depth effect. A variety of labels decorated with Lumafin and the combination of color printing and Lumafin decoration are on display at Labelexpo.
A focal point of the Kurz stand is digital finishing using the DM-Jetliner. There are live demonstrations of an HP Indigo 6900 digital printing machine with an integrated DM-Jetliner finishing module, which can be used to metalize web-fed labels and overprint them in a single pass at full printing speeds.
Show visitors can observe the integration of the DM-Jetliner into the printing process and the creation of metallic colors, decorative, personalized elements and holographic effects.
