Leonhard Kurz wins European Digital Press Award
Fürth, Germany, May 27, 2015: Leonhard Kurz has been selected as the "Best special solutions printer" at the European Digital Press Awards 2015. The specialist for decorative and functional coating technology received the award for its DM-Liner enhancing machine. The European Digital Press Association handed over the prize at the award ceremony on May 20 at FESPA in Cologne.
The award-winning DM-Liner, a patented technology developed by Kurz, transfers metallic layers onto paper and cardboard. The DM-Liner applies a specially developed digital metal foil to sheets of paper preprinted with toner in the digital method. The sheets can be overprinted as desired in digital or offset printing, resulting in colorful metal tints. The metal effects can be achieved from the first copy, for instance for personalization and numbering.
