MELBOURNE, FL – MGI announced that it was awarded 3 Graph Expo 2016 “Must See ‘Em” Awards for industry achievement by the judging committee of America’s largest print trade show. The new JETvarnish 3D Evolution B1+ size digital enhancement press, the new AIS Artificial Intelligence SmartScanner and the new Meteor Unlimited Colors Press Series were all granted honors in the elite categories of Digital Press, Digital Postpress and the Future of Print.
“We’re honored by the multiple awards and the recognition of our new digital innovations as being important for the entire print industry.

JETvarnish 3D Evolution “Digital Postpress” Award
The JETvarnish 3D Evolution is part of the famous MGI JETvarnish 3D product family of digital enhancement presses that bring prints, packages & labels to life with raised special effects, dimensional textures and personalized embossed foil. The JETvarnish 3D Evolution is the world’s first B1+ sized digital production solution for embellishing and decorating prints with 2D\3D UV varnish designs and Variable Data Foiling (VDF).
Digital Printing, Packaging & Labeling Advantages
The digital benefits of the Evolution include: rapid prototyping for new product launches, complete customization of special effects on every job and faster short run turnarounds to fuel greater productivity and profitability. The Evolution has three B2-B1 sheet-size configurations: 20x40”, 25x40” & 29x40”.
The system is 100% digital so every sheet can be personalized with uniquely embossed names, data and graphics in eye-catching, vibrant metallic and patterned foil colors. No dies, screens or plates are required.
Meteor Unlimited Colors “Digital Press” Award
The Meteor Unlimited Colors Press Series, a powerful and unique synthesis of digital press & postpress technologies, offers printers production printing and toner foiling capabilities with a potentially unlimited color gamut by using the light-reflecting qualities of metallic foil. Overprinting the foil with CMYK toner ink produces a brilliant rainbow spectrum of new hues, tints and shades. MGI foiling is 100% digital and requires no dies.
Personalized Foil & Millions of New Colors
The MGI Meteor Unlimited Colors Press Series allows printers to go far beyond traditional print color expansion (such as adding a 5th or 6thcolor) by creating a fusion of foil and CMYK toner pigmentation. This allows designers and printers to create millions of new color variations via a limitless palette of digital options.
AIS SmartScanner “Future of Print” Award
The MGI Artificial Intelligence SmartScanner (AIS) is a revolutionary registration development for the printing and finishing industries. The AIS SmartScanner uses advanced optics and logic algorithms to map each sheet and label fed into the JETvarnish 3D family of digital postpress systems. Using print image and inkjet synchronization techniques, the exclusive and patented AIS system calculates more than 5 billion operations per second to optimize each piece printed on digital, flexo and offset presses.
