With KPS slim (patent pending), we are raising our sustainability bar even further: To match our wafer-thin metallization layers, we have now also significantly slimmed down the transfer carrier for our cold transfer decoration. In this way, we are reducing the PETshare of our decoration product by a whopping 50%! In turn, this means more running meters on one roll, fewer reel changes, and therefore less downtime and faster set-up times. But don't forget: The PET is only a carrier material and is not applied to your print sheets. What remains on your packaging is a brilliant gloss, even on complex surfaces. Try it out!
Cold Transfer for sheet-fed offset printing provides you with a real WOW effect at the POS. How are you ever going to outdo this? The answer is simple: LIGHT LINE® KSO. With its vibrant diffractive effects, our cold transfer finishing takes your breath away. So does the simplicity of the application: Whether inline or offline, our KSO performs optimally with sheet-fed offset printing. In combination with an oxidatively/conventionally drying offset adhesive, as well as with UV-drying adhesives, you achieve best results for coated paper and cardboard printing.

KURZ Transfer Metal technology supplements our range of sustainable finishing processes with a smart add-on module for all processors who don’t want to invest in a new cold-transfer machine. The module can be easily combined with existing sheet-fed printing machines, which keeps costs and effort manageable. KURZ also offers the winder, which is used for this purpose and can be adapted to individual requirements.
With the KURZ Transfer Metal ultra-thin sheet-fed finishing, you can decorate your packaging with breathtaking high-gloss designs entirely without leaving any plastic behind. This means that your packaging remains recyclable and therefore more environmentally friendly – a clear advantage compared to conventional laminates. In addition, the reduction in packaging weight makes transport more environmentally friendly. As a special extra, the carrier material that is not needed can be processed and returned to the recyclable material cycle as part of our globally unique KURZ RECOSYS® recycling system.
