MGI and Agfa Demo Digital Spot UV, Personalized Embossed Foiling at SGIA Expo
MELBOURNE, Fla.—November 4, 2015—MGI Digital Technology and Agfa Graphics will be showcasing innovative digital print enhancement solutions for creative graphic design applications at the annual SGIA Expo this week (Agfa Booth #3127), that is being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from November 4-6.
The key MGI digital products that will be featured at Agfa’s booth at SGIA Expo include the dual PIA InterTech Award-winning JETvarnish 3D and iFOIL system, which offers Spot UV coating with 2D/3D dimensional textures and embossed foiling. Variable Data Finishing (VDF) capabilities allow for personalization on each piece produced.
MGI digital enhancement technology also allows short-run production work that can be customized for different versions—such as English or Spanish, Summer or Winter—according to customer needs.
“As a global leader in pre-press, wide-format and enterprise production printing solutions, we’re inspired by the opportunity to strengthen the Agfa product portfolio with the unique MGI advantage of postpress digital embellishment,” said Deborah Hutcheson, Agfa Graphics director of marketing.
Kevin Abergel, MGI vice president of marketing and sales, also added, "Agfa and MGI are working closely together to offer the most creative—and profitable—print enhancement options to the SGIA printing community and the specialty graphic arts industry."
