The specialist for print finishing solutions Leonhard Kurz has acquired the screen printing machine manufacturer Isimat, which has its headquarters in Ellwangen, Germany. Isimat develops and builds high-performance printing machines that are used to decorate complex shaped glass and plastic packaging. The company will continue to conduct its business as an independent subsidiary of Kurz under the ongoing leadership of Torsten Hirschnitz and with the same contact persons for its customers.

“Isimat offers the glass and cosmetics industries unique possibilities for printing multicolored exclusive designs with high registration accuracy,” explains Ljubisa Drinic, Head of Business Area Application at Kurz and, together with Dirk Bockwinkel, a member of the Supervisory Board at Isimat. “The company now also has the ability to draw upon the extensive range of competencies of the Kurz Group. Thanks to the Kurz subsidiaries Baier with its hot stamping systems, and Hinderer + Mühlich with its hot stamping dies, we possess experience in mechanical engineering and the development of single-source solutions for packaging decoration. Isimat's particular engineering ingenuity combined with the global strength and innovative capacity of Kurz creates synergies to deliver innovative solutions for cosmetics and glass packaging. Using our collective know-how, Isimat is able to offer its customers new decoration possibilities to open up market opportunities and strengthen their competitive position.”

Kurz and Isimat are longstanding technology partners who jointly developed, and brought to series production readiness, the patented Inline Foiling decoration process. Inline Foiling allows metallizations to be transferred to glass and plastic containers at high speeds. This process produces high-gloss metallic designs that have not previously been achievable using other decoration technologies. Kurz, as the specialist in decorative and functional coatings, developed the foil technology for this novel transfer process, and Isimat the machine technology. “This success story will now be continued,” declares Drinic.
