Stamping technology from KURZ

The most efficient route to unlimited design variety
One Mold – many Processes

Sometimes the most efficient way of finishing your components is what determines your competitive advantage. This is why it is important for us at LEONHARD KURZ to provide a dynamic, innovative range of technology that can be flexibly adapted to meet your requirements. We are the only company in the world that can offer all finishing processes from a single source.

Whether you require traditional plastic injection molding, IMD, insert molding, IML or hot stamping, various processes can be carried out with just one tool, allowing you to choose the most favorable finishing process depending on the quantity.


IPD-Skin
New decoration technology

Benefits:

  • Maximum design flexibility for small series and special editions

  • Decoration process can be used for large size parts

  • Various decoration substrates with haptic and optical effects feasible

  • Low temperature and pressure load result in better tactile finishes

  • High flexibility and fast changeover between different decoration parts

Vertical Stamping

Process advantages:

Vertical stamping offers a simple means of decorating two-dimensional plastic surfaces. It can accommodate ...

  • Decoration of the full surface or part of the surface

  • Numerous variations to satisfy different part requirements

  • First and second surface decoration

 


Roll-on Stamping

Process advantages:

Process advantages: Roll-on stamping offers a simple means of decorating two-dimensional plastic surfaces

  • Full surface or partial decoration

  • Numerous variations for different decoration requirements

  • First and second surface decoration

 


3DHS® - the Innovation:

  • Hot stamping is now three-dimensional

  • Economical decoration

  • Foil, tool and machine as a system package - perfectly coordinated to one another

IMD Decoration

The IMD-technique combines molding and hot stamping into one working operation.

By the complete decoration of plastic parts during the molding operation, the production costs can be reduced considerably: decoration after molding, in-process inventory and additional working steps can be dropped.


Insert Molding

As addition to the IMD-decoration the Insert Molding offers by a higher deformation of the foil further possibilities where decoration of strongly contoured and formed parts is requested.

Insert Molding combines hot stamping process, vacuum-forming and molding process.


IMD IML Decoration

This technology simultaneously applies the transparent, conductive PolyTC foil for touch sensor and decorative coatings on components during the injection molding process. The process combines inmold labeling (IML) and inmold decoration (IMD):
The PolyTC lable is inserted in on the core side of the mold. The IMD decorating foil is positioned. After the injection molding process the finished part can be removed and installed.

Typical areas of application include control panels in the automotive or home appliance sector, multitouch in sensors in mobile communications, and also innovative capacitive controls in consumer electronic applications.


Functional Foil Bonding
Vertical Stamping

Functional Foil Bonding (FFB) is a patent-registered procedure for fully automatic, high precision integration of highly conductive, transparent PolyTC touch sensors for plastic parts:

  • Transfer of a functional element to a substrate using pressure and heat
  • Durable compound created by chemical bonding, without bubble formation due to any gas from the plastic substrate
  • Integrated process, depending on geometry and size of component and sensor
  • Specification advantages over conventional processes such as OCA
  • Runs outside of the injection molding process, but can be directly linked
  • Process and cost benefits thanks to ease of automation
