What problem does your product Digital Lacquer Embossing (DLEplus) solve?
Digital structuring as a logical addition to digital decor printing has been a topic of discussion since Interzum 2017. From the beginning, the machine and plant manufacturer Hymmen has played a leading role in the development of appropriate processes for the wood-based materials industry. The company has already launched several systems in the market.
At Interzum 2019, Hymmen received the Innovation Award for its digital lacquer embossing (DLE) technology, in 2021 the further developed technology "DLE plus" won the innovation award at the TSIE – fair in Las Vegas.
What is the product’s main benefit for the customer?
Digital lacquer embossing exploits all the commercial and technical advantages of Hymmen’s established digital single-pass printing process. These include properties such as high flexibility, short set-up times, no storage costs, new design options and customization, and doing away 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. Using just small amount of the structuring medium does not change any of the tried-and-tested properties of the varnish, such as hardness, adhesion, scratch resistance, and chemical resistance. Ultimately, 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 can be summarized as follows:
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.
