Press release from the issuing company
Melbourne, Fla. – The annual PRINT 18 Graphic Arts trade show event and exhibition produced by the Association for Print Technologies (APTech) has been energized this year with new attendee attractions, expanded educational programming and the debut of the sparkling “Red Hot Technology” program that honors and recognizes important new product innovations for the industry.
On-Press Software Advancements
The MGI Image Editor comes fully loaded on all of the JETVarnish 3D inkjet-based print enhancement presses, which are standalone postpress finishing hubs for adding eye-catching, dimensional sensory special effects to offset, digital & flexo printed output.
The graphic print file management software application allows press operators to create, modify and model new added-value print embellishments right at the workstation. It is also a flexible prototyping toolset for exploring and pursuing new digitally decorated designs for the profitable expansion of commercial, finishing, packaging and label projects.
The software can even be downloaded to desktops and networks so design work and prototyping activities can be created remotely and then produced at a different location. The Image Editor comes loaded with over 50 free pre-formatted 3D dimensional textures to use as a starter library and users can add an unlimited number of new styles.
Print Registration Innovation
The Image Editor is fully integrated with the intelligent and adaptive JETvarnish 3D AIS SmartScanner registration system for enhancing offset, flexo and digital printed material. It automatically adjusts the placement of varnish and foil based on actual ink impressions and substrate characteristics (such as shrink, skew and stretch).
It eliminates the need for registration marks and optimizes quality by treating each finished piece as a separate print job. It can also “capture” a scanned print image and generate new special effects without the original print file. The AIS SmartScanner was honored with a 2017 Printing Industries of America (PIA) InterTech Award for significant innovation in the print industries.
"This new application from MGI and Konica Minolta is an excellent example of new product development that will empower printers, finishers and packaging converters to creatively pursue new business opportunities that will make a significant impact on print buyers, brands and their customer relationships in the marketplace.“
MGI & Konica Print 18 Solutions
At the PRINT 18 trade show, MGI and Konica Minolta will also be demonstrating other members of JETvarnish 3D Enhancement Press Series, as well as the Meteor Unlimited Colors XL+ multi-substrate digital toner foiling press that offers a rainbow kaleidoscope of new colors, tints & hues.
MGI and Konica Minolta will also be demonstrating their digital Label and Flexible Packaging solutions, including the JETVarnish 3D Web and AccurioLabel 190 presses, at the upcoming Labelexpo Americas (Booth #5721 - Sept. 25-27th) trade show in Chicago. All interested members of the graphic arts industries are welcome to contact Konica Minolta and MGI to arrange for a personal briefing on the digital power and revenue production benefits of the JETvarnish 3D and Accurio Product Series during these autumn events.
