At interpack 2023, KURZ presented sustainable processes, new machine technologies and innovative finishing solutions under the motto ‘making every product unique.’
With its modular UV-LED digital printing solutions, KURZ subsidiary MPRINT demonstrated the possibilities of late-stage individualisation in sheetfed printing live at the show. The innovative machines are suitable, among other things, for the digital printing of blister packaging, cards and folding cartons, ensuring greater sustainability while offering efficiency and flexibility.
The core of the new solution is a vacuum conveyor belt on which various printing units can be installed (eg monochrome modules for imprinting barcodes or variable text, multicolour systems for imprinting security information in spot colours, or plug-in modules for integrating security features that enable reliable, digital brand protection). Monojet is the solution for both static data, such as text or images, and highly dynamic data, such as barcodes generated from databases.
MPRINT presented a new design study based on the intuitive HMI with enhanced print software functions as a new operating concept for the fastest way to start printing.
The company also demonstrated an ‘All-in-One Digital Printbar’ concept that requires no additional peripherals since everything from the PC to the ink supply is part of the print case, thus saving space and simplifying operation.
Combined with a development study of a new highly compact 4C digital printing module, MPRINT presented an absolute highlight. Especially for the integration in packaging machines, among others, this opens up new possibilities.
With MJETeco, MPRINT also demonstrated a compact stand-alone solution in the label area (roll to roll), perfectly suitable for individualising conventionally produced and highly finished labels at the last moment. A unique feature of MJETeco is, for example, the processing of already cut-out labels. This makes the system suitable for the industrial in-plant market and enables manufacturers and contract packaging companies to individually adapt label production to the actual production volume, making it more efficient and sustainable.
