Kurz is set to launch a digital cold foiling system at Labelexpo Americas 2018, which will enable variable data to be used in the foiling process.

The DM-Liner UV-Ink Roll-to-Roll system comes in built-on and built-in configurations for conventional 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’s UV cured and stripped,” he said.

The system is already available worldwide, including Australia, and 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’ve had a bit of interest so far, and we’ll get more after more people see it,” said Murphy. “The main areas of focus are for short runs and variable data – there’s no changeover or flexo plates necessary, so every label can be different.”
