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"

Option to add a 2nd print line to be used with either a single ink color (perfect for bar codes and other Variable Data Printing applications) or a 2nd varnish formula.

The JETvarnish is ideally suited for a host of applications, including book covers, posters, brochures, personalized direct mail, premium packaging, proofing/prototyping, corporate materials and many others, at a cost per page drastically less than offset or silk screen for shorter runs.

Standard in-line & automated functions include duplex lamination (options for matte, satin or glossy finish or no lamination; or multiple finishes – i.e. matte on one side, satin on other); simultaneous cutting (horizontal & vertical); slitting; creasing (horizontal and vertical); and vertical perforation

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.

UVarnish flood UV coater
