Finally! Real metal in digital printing

This is how it works

  • The specified design is printed directly onto the substrate with toner or electro-ink
  • The foil is applied onto the preprinted material
  • After detaching carrier film, the metallized coating layers remain on the toner/electro-ink
  • Overprinting in digital or offset printing
  • Flawless enhancement results without deformation of substrate

The DM-Liner

Modern design, compelling technology

The DM-LINER®

The DM-Liner

The DM-LINER® allows a digital transfer of metallizations onto paper and cardboard stock. The transfer process is upstream of the digital color printing. The designs to be metallized are first printed with toner or electro- ink; then, the DIGITAL METAL® foil is transferred by the DM-LINER® and the PET carrier is removed. For processing, the DM-LINER® can be supplied by sheets as well as rolls. The addition of an unstacker and stacker allows the basic machine to be used for digital sheet-fed printing.

DM-LINER UV-INK

World's first integrated UV-INK!

DM-LINER® UV-INK

DM-Liner UV-INK

The DM-LINER® UV-INK digitally transfers metallization onto paper and cardboard. The transfer process can be up- or downstream of the color printing. The designs to be metallized are first printed with UV-ink. The metallization is then transfered to the substrate and hardened with an LED UV. The carrier foil is removed after the transfer procedure. The addition of a destacker and stacker allows the basic machine to be used for digital sheet-fed printing.
