The thin-film specialist will present the three stages of the TTR evolution at its in-house trade fair, KURZ LABEL WEEKS – Engineering The Future Of Embellishment. From June 20 to October 28, 2022, KURZ will be showcasing groundbreaking innovations for the label and packaging industry at the group headquarters in Fürth (Germany).

The first evolution stage, ‘Communicating’, describes the comprehensive range of classic thermal transfer ribbons from KURZ that ensure the reliable communication of variable data. ‘Branding’ represents the second stage of the TTR evolution. With its extensive color palette, KURZ offers possibilities that are so far unique on the market. The coating expert can develop thermal transfer ribbons in the exclusive corporate colors of the client. Even metallization in color ribbons and filigree details can be perfectly reproduced.

Under the name ‘Protecting’, KURZ ignites the third stage of evolution in brand protection and delivers absolute innovation. Thanks to TTR Unique UV and TTR Unique VEROSPEC®, manufacturers can equip labels and other TTR prints with security features. KURZ’s expertise in coating and security technology makes it possible to integrate hidden information directly into the ribbon. Even the thinnest strips of a barcode show security features in this way. Both TTR Unique UV and TTR Unique VEROSPEC® are individually tailored to the customer’s needs.

At the KURZ LABEL WEEKS trade fair, KURZ will be showing which security elements can be integrated into the ribbons. Visiting the exhibition is possible after prior registration – interested parties can now make an individual appointment online.
