Print Mold Design

Premium surfaces for premium products

Customers expect a feast for all the senses. No matter whether they’re buying a car, a laptop, or a new kitchen. It’s all about exceptional aesthetics paired with individuality and functionality. Because customers buy whatever suits their own lifestyle. This poses a special challenge for product design. Stand out with Print Mold Design (PMD) from our subsidiary BURG DESIGN. As an industry-wide solution provider for finishing, we bring together the best technologies from different industries. With our unmistakable sense for trends and innovation, your products are sure to become coveted designer pieces. Exceptional and high quality.


Achieve extraordinary design effects with PMD

PMD (Print Mold Design) is related to insert molding technology and adds value to products. Together with BURG DESIGN, the screen printing specialist within the KURZ Group, we can also combine complex geometries with design, lighting effects, a delicate feel, and transparencies. With special silk-screen printing technology, transparent plastic sheets are printed on both sides, and deformed, punched, and injection molded in line with the component geometry in each case. This creates sensual and fascinating surface designs: deceptively real depth and matt/glossy effects as well as tactile haptics that are second to none.


Especially clever: backlighting

Backlighting can create even more accents. Just think of backlit fronts in the living area, individual lighting design in the interior of vehicles, or products in day-night design. By day, the surface boasts a striking design with depth effect. At night, exciting backlighting brings the product to life. Even touch panels become designer pieces with the right lighting concept, arousing the curiosity and enthusiasm of users.

PMD turns traditional worlds upside down

A washing machine in a high-gloss kitchen, a fridge right next to a bookcase in the living room - all quite conceivable with the print mold technology from KURZ. The aesthetically sophisticated surfaces make it possible for areas of life to merge together. With its innovative developments, KURZ ensures that new life concepts can grow. Surfaces made with PMD become smart decors through the integration of extremely thin, capacitive sensors from KURZ subsidiary PolyIC. This opens up even more possibilities. Just think of autonomous driving and smart homes. Such technological miracles are only possible with sophisticated and intuitive operating concepts. And we contribute to this. With KURZ, you go beyond limits and lay the foundation for the future. Let us help you become an inspiration and give your customers ideas.
