MGI’s JETcard is a true Card Factory and can replace up to 5 different pieces of equipment traditionally used in the plastic card production chain: litho press, a collator, a lamination press, a die cutter and an encoder/personalization printer. The JETcard utilizes eco-friendly technology, saving resources, eliminating waste (no plates or screens) and harmful emissions (ozone and solvent-free) while reducing the overall electrical consumption compared to traditional methods and can print on environmentally friendly paper cards, a sustainable alternative to PVC and made of 100% recyclable and natural materials.
In addition to the Meteor DP8700 XL and JETcard, MGI will showcase their other versatile digital solutions at GRAPH EXPO in booth 3619, including multi-function paper finishing (DF360), flood UV coating (UVarnish) and finishing for plastic card manufacturing (PressCard Pro®, PunchCard Pro).
