Packaging solution provider Coveris’ subsidiary Amberley Labels has installed a digital pre-print foil unit at its Blandford facility in Dorset, UK.
The new investment in Kurz DM-Jetliner will allow the company to offer digital metallisation of labels on paper and plastic substrates.
Designed for HP Indigo digital press labels and commercial printing, the foil jetliner, integrated within an HP Indigo 6000 series press at Amberley’s facility, will create custom and multiple colour varieties within a single label possible.
With the installation, Amberley Labels has become the only UK label manufacturer to offer this capability.
Amberley Labels managing director David Richards said: “The Kurz DM-Jetliner means we now offer next-generation inline foiling capability and flexibility, with greater colour possibilities and brand control. Mass customisation of metallic finishes – variable metallised print and colour – creates a new level of versatility for design and print, which is a real game-changer for our customer base.”
“Having this technology allows the creation and combination of labels that was previously unavailable; it also enables us to invest more future resources in additional embellishment techniques such as silkscreen and domed foil applications embossing and hot foil to support continued innovation in this area.”
In July, Coveris announced a multimillion investment in next-generation print and finishing equipment at Amberley’s new sister facility in Boston, Lincolnshire.
It also unveiled a rebranded Amberley Labels, which was acquired in 2019.
Last week, Coveris’ Board division produced new twin kraft boxes for Hawksmoor Restaurant’s ‘at home’ range.
