• Super Format print capabilities accommodate up to 13 x 40” / 330 x 1020 mm sheets in production (up to 47” long in manual mode), the largest cut sheet size among professional digital presses.

JETvarnish digital inkjet spot UV coater

MGI’s award-winning JETvarnish features several new developments for 2010:

• New left and right guides allow for alignment to offset gripper marks on either side of the sheet, resulting in the most precise registration

• Expanded sheet sizes up to 52 x 105 cm / 20” x 40”

With the addition of a lamination function, the DF360 brings many common finishing techniques together, performed in just one pass. It can accommodate sheet widths up to 360 mm / 14” and lengths up to 740 mm / 29”, making it ideal for applications such as book covers, brochures, menus, folders tri-and-quad-fold documents, tickets, business cards, photo books, invitations, greeting cards, post cards (with tear-off response card), menus, and more.
