Press release from the issuing company

Ivry Sur Seine, France - MGI Digital Graphic Technology, with its newest innovation iFOIL, won the prestigious “Best New Production Equipment” award at the 58th Annual Oscar de l'Emballage ceremony. The iFOIL is the first production solution in the world capable of doing both embossing  and hot foil stamping in a fully digital process.

For the 58th edition of the ceremony, Infopro Digital Group , publisher of the magazine " Usine Nouvelle", " Emballages Magazine " & " LSA " brought together a panel of respected packaging professionals and journalists to determine the award winners for the Oscars de l’Emballage throughout various categories.

This new digital process completely eliminates the need for plates or dies, as everything is controlled by a rip  using digital files making the setup time only a few minutes long. As it is using a fully digital process, this also allows for the variable data production of embossed and hot foil stamped effects, with each sheet being different from the previous, with no impact on productivity. For the  digital hot foil stamping, the iFOIL solution uses market available films, allowing for a very wide range of colors and effects, including metallic and holographic films .

For digital embossing, the iFOIL solution in line with the JETvarnish 3D can create a build thickness of up to 200 microns* without generating any embossing marks on the back of the sheet. Both Embossing and Hot Foil Stamping can be activated independently of one another or may be combined.

iFOIL can handle all sheet formats  A4 up to 52x105 cm (Letter size up to 20x40 Inches) and can produce at rates of up to several thousand sheets per hour . This equipment operates in line with the JETvarnish 3D digital coater, and will be commercially available within in the 1st quarter 2014.

*With "Twin" option
