BELGIUM • Leonhard Kurz will present the new DM-Liner UV-ink built-in finishing station, integrated into a narrow web printing and further processing machine at Labelexpo Europe 2017. This transfer station for digital metal foil from Kurz is a component of the new Mlabel Generation 3 Mprint printing system which prints, finishes, punches and weeds labels.

In Brussels the company’s range of functionality of the Mlabel system will be demonstrated, including the trouble-free integration of the digital metal transfer step into the digital printing process.


A metallized variable design will be applied to the labels in the DM-Liner station, and then overprinted in color and further processed in the inkjet printing system. The design of the label has been selected to illustrate the unique creative possibilities of digital metal finishing, which can be used to metallize not only large areas but also filigree details. Fine cutouts and reverse types are also possible. High edge definition transfer of the digital metal foil can be achieved even at fast digital printing speeds. Visitors to the Kurz booth can take back home with them samples of the labels finished in the live demonstration.

According to Kurz the transfer station integrated into the Mlabel machine is a built-in version of the DM-Liner UV-Ink for digital web-fed printing machines. The DM-Liner UV-Ink Stand-alone for web-fed printing is suitable for any printing process.

Visitors find Leonhard Kurz in hall 3 stand D40.
