Foil Application and Support


KURZ is the leading provider of foil-based security features for banknotes.

Our strong R&D competence, our deep knowledge about application processes, and our excellent relations to all relevant application machine suppliers allow us to support our clients with first-class application know-how and on-site assistance.

We provide our support at the printer’s premises or at the paper mills. Our application technicians are always at our customer’s service for technical support visits, on-site staff training, and to share their expert knowledge.

Furthermore, KURZ offers the MHS reel-to-reel hotstamping machine for application of foil stripes. This machine can also generate windows and apply foil stripes in register all in one pass. It is installed and in well-proven use at many international banknote substrate producers.
