MGI JETvarnish 3D Evolution – Spot UV Embossing and Hot Foil Stamping System

Delivering dynamic performance for the most demanding applications, the MGI JETvarnish 3D Evolution Spot UV Embossing and Hot Foil Stamping System gives extra added value and sensory dimensional textures to printed output. The MGI JETvarnish 3D Evolution is available in three different widths: 20” x 47” (52 cm x 120 cm), 25” x 47” (64 cm x 120 cm), and 29” x 47″ (75 cm x 120 cm). This 3D printing series has been specially designed to offer digital and offset printers a scalable upgrade path for a full range of production environments and post-press applications. The MGI JETvarnish 3D Evolution employs the Artificial Intelligence SmartScanner (AIS), which uses AI to create an automatic varnish and hot foil registration for inkjet heads over the pre-printed sheet.

 

Advantages at a Glance

  • Ultra-precise digital 2D/3D Spot UV coater with in-line hot foiling
  • Spectacular and unique effects are available within a 100% digital print process
  • Provides quick prototyping, short run customization flexibility and the ability to use variable data for personalizing text and graphics on every piece produced
  • No make-ready, no plates (offset), no screens (silkscreen), no dyes (hot foiling), no waste (electricity, paper, varnish and time)
  • Embossing from 3 microns (µm) up to 232 microns (µm)
  • Digital hot foil stamping supporting multiple-colored foils applied in one pass (up to five colors)

More Details

 

Printing Technology: MGI’s exclusive inkjet technology
Drop-on-Demand (DoD) inkjet application
Piezoelectric print heads in single pass printing
Flexible and scalable architecture
Variable Coating Thickness: Depending on your file and the substrate used, the coating thickness can vary from a traditional flat spot UV coating of 3 microns (µm) up to 232 µm for 3D raised texture effects and a tactile finish.
Production Speed (Speed will vary according to printing parameter used): Up to 3,123 B2 sheets size per hour for all versions. The Evo 75 can reach up to 4,200 B2 sheets per hour (landscape) and up to 2,291 B1 sheets per hour.
Registration: Left and right motorized registration side guides
Automatic registration using the built-in AIS SmartScanner technology for real-time management of entire sheet. No registration marks required.
