MGI Breaks 3D Spot UV Coating Speed Record with Premiere of JETvarnish 3D Twin Option

Press release from the issuing company

The “Twin” option also doubles coating thickness up to 200 microns in a single pass

IVRY-SUR-SEINE, FRANCE – MGI Digital Graphic Technology, the leading manufacturer of digital printing and finishing solutions, will premiere the world’s fastest digital inkjet spot UV coater, the JETvarnish 3D with the new “Twin” option at Graphitec, held in Paris (Porte de Versailles) June 11-14, 2013 (hall 4, stand D015).  

JETvarnish 3D: setting the new PRODUCTION SPEED RECORD for 3D spot UV coating

With the introduction of the “Twin” option, speeds for 3D spot UV coating with raised effects are doubled compared to the standard JETvarnish 3D configuration. MGI’s exclusive inkjet technology features a fixed head configuration, producing the new speed boost in just one pass while maintaining precise registration.

The JETvarnish 3D “Twin” option can apply 3D raised effects at speeds up to 2,234 12x18” sheets per hour, making it the fastest digital raised coating device available today. It also doubles the amount of coating that can be applied in one pass to a maximum of 200 microns, opening up new markets such as Braille.

These gains in speed and productivity are ideally suited to higher volume applications for both printers and trade finishers.

In the standard configuration, the JETvarnish 3D can spot UV coat up to 3,000 B2/20x29” sheets per hour and features a maximum format size of 52x105 cm / 20x42”, ideal for extended size offset applications. 

The JETvarnish 3D “Twin” option will be presented for the first time in live demonstration at the Graphitec tradeshow in Paris. Beginning in fall 2013, it will be available from initial unit purchase or as a field upgrade to existing JETvarnish 3D units.

As one of the largest exhibitors at Graphitec (250m2), MGI will present their full lineup of innovative digital printing and finishing solutions, including several other new equipment previews.

In combination with MGI’s 100% digital process, the new inline option allows printers and trade finishers to apply hot foil inline with an “embossed” look and feel, giving finished pieces a high value for a fraction of the traditional cost.

A flood UV coater designed to work inline with MGI Meteor digital presses, the Nova UV can also serve as a stand-alone unit.

MGI will also present the flagship Meteor series of digital presses, featuring the Meteor DP8700 XL (paper, plastics & envelopes, plus sheet sizes up to 330x1020 mm/ 13x40” in production) and Meteor DP8700 S (paper and envelopes), both of which operate at speeds up to 4,260 A4/letter pages per hour
