Benefits of the product:
Over the years in the wood processing industry, Digital lacquer embossing had been an important part of both commercial and technical usage and Hymmen has successfully established digital single -pass printing process. Key characteristics of the process includes high- flexibility, reduced set-up time, less storage expense, new design options as well as customisation and also perform with the need to change cylinders or press plates.
With a width of 70 mm to 2,100 mm and only one digital pressure bar, the technology can be easily integrated into existing processes. Textures can be created that run synchronously with the surface decor – regardless of whether this decor was achieved through analog or digital printing.
The advantages of the DLE plus digital lacquer embossing process are:
• A large texture depth of 10 – 200 µm
• Special effects due to high variability in depth
• Sharp edges
• Different gloss grades
• On request synchronized with the printed decor
• Paint surface quality is retained
• Technology can be added to existing conventional paint lines
Seeing and touching authentic surfaces is made possible by the continuous application of industrial digital printing from Hymmen – including its commercial and technical advantages. Digital Lacquer Embossing thus offers a completely new additional benefit for surface finishing – and, with DLE plus, for an even wider variety of textures.
