The name says it all: Our DM-UNILINER stands for its universal applicability. The digital embellishment unit, which is independent of printing systems and equipped with inkjet technology, was designed for the narrow-web sector. The special feature: metallization can be applied in pre-print or post-print processes. The overprinting of the metallized designs or holographic structures creates a variety of iridescent color and light effects.

What Is Digital Embellishment?

KURZ Digital Transfer

Without influencing the production speed of your conventional or digital printing presses, the downstream digital embellishment process enables, among other things, individualizations such as variable motifs, thus allowing the visually sophisticated late stage customization of your designs. In all cases, the decorative layer is transferred without the PET carrier remaining. The DM-UNILINER transfer machine offers you maximum flexibility in terms of finishing time – for smooth, fast processes with low amounts of waste. Its performance and process reliability are specifically tailored to industrial requirements, so that finishing, even of the shortest runs, always remains profitable.
