High-performing Banknote Application with KURZ MHS

KURZ is also a supplier of hot stamping application machines in the banknote industry. We provide the MHS reel-to-reel hot stamping machine for the application of diffractive security stripes. This machine is ideally suited to the creation of windows in banknotes and the application of foil stripes in register, all in one pass. It is installed and well-proven in use at many international banknote substrate producers.
