DM-JETLINER for Digital Transfer

Digital Printing on Paper and Labels

Enhancing paper and labels with a metallic design is the next step to win over customers at the POS. But especially for beginners, many questions occur: What is digital transfer? How do you embellish your product with sparkling metallic effects? What kind of press do you need for digital embellishment? Can you foil with an inkjet printer? Our DM-JETLINER achieves amazing metallization effects on paper and label materials during the digital printing process. Our digital transfer solution uses the application method ‘Inkjet on Foil’ for digital embellishment. With this, our high-performance digital transfer module even convinced HP Indigo regarding a cooperation: Our digital pre-print foil unit DM-JETLINER was combined with the HP Indigo 6900 Digital Press to simplify the production of high-value labels with metallic effects in one pass.

How Does Digital Printing with Inkjet on Foil Work?

KURZ Digital Transfer

Once the metallization is applied to the unprinted substrate with a UV-curing adhesive, the PET carrier is removed, and the substrate can be overprinted within the printing machine. The digital transfer process can be integrated seamlessly inline into your digital printing machine – upstream from the digital color printing. With our DM-JETLINER we invented an undeniably digital embellishing unit for many substrates like foil and paper materials. If you wonder, why you should choose KURZ, here is why:
