MGI Earns Must See ‘Em Honors at GRAPH EXPO
MELBOURNE, FL—September 25, 2012—MGI Digital Graphic Technology, the manufacturer of multi-substrate digital printing and finishing solutions, announces that two products—first introduced at drupa—will make their North American debut at GRAPH EXPO (booth 3623): the JETvarnish 3D inkjet spot UV coater, which has already earned Must See ‘em recognition; and the Meteor DP8700 S digital press.
JETvarnish 3D inkjet spot UV coater
Arguably the hottest product in MGI’s drupa booth, the JETvarnish 3D builds on the worldwide commercial success of the JETvarnish inkjet spot UV coater, giving graphics professionals a dual set of tools to increase profitability—traditional flat spot UV coating and new 3D raised effects, together for the first time in one production unit.
The JETvarnish 3D features dramatically increased production speed for flat spot UV coating (up to 3,000 20x29" sheets per hour) and new 3D raised effects up to 100 microns in thickness. Variation of thickness within the same design is possible through file management, allowing texture creation. These beautiful tactile effects allow end users to differentiate their brands and add a new dimension of visual appeal to a wide range of projects, such as book covers, brochures, business cards, pocket folders, postcards, packaging, photo books, greeting cards, announcements and more. The JETvarnish 3D’s 100 percent digital operation requires no plates, screens or expensive makeready, perfect for runs from one to thousands.
Other key features of the JETvarnish 3D include sheet sizes up to 20x42", full variable data capabilities, a new camera system that ensures precise registration to printed pages, substrate weights from 135-600 gsm, and spot UV coating directly onto most digital or offset prints with no lamination required.
The game-changing JETvarnish 3D was honored as a Must See ‘em in the Postpress Finishing—Digital and Small-Format category. Winners were selected by a panel of industry experts, journalists and consultants from 110 entries submitted by 43 companies. The panel based their choices on the impact they believe these technologies will have on the industry.
