MGI Digital Technology has announced a major new addition to its renowned and award-winning JETvarnish 3D digital enhancement product portfolio, the JETvarnish 3D Evolution.
The JETvarnish 3D Evo is the world’s first B1+ scalable sheet-fed Digital Enhancement Press and features a modular and field upgradeable architecture, digital foiling and an upgradeable inkjet expansion system with three available substrate size options ranging from 52 x 120cm (standard) to 64 x 120cm and 75 x 120cm. The production speed of JETvarnish 3D Evo 75 achieves more than 4000 B2 sheets an hour.
The B1+ size format option is designed to give printers and converters the ability to run fully personalised short, medium and long runs without expensive tooling for packaging applications. Every piece finished on all of MGI’s JETvarnish 3D Evo systems can be a unique blend of digitally-embellished images, text, data and brand designs using spot varnish, 3D raised varnish and digitally embossed foil in one pass.
The JETvarnish 3D Evo is an high-production solution that incorporates a revolutionary artificial intelligence-based sheet registration system, automated inkjet head cleaning, pallet stacking and feeding systems, all of which will be unveiled and launched at drupa.
The JETvarnish 3D Evo will be demonstrated live at the upcoming drupa 2016 international print trade fair in the MGI Booth from 31 May 31 to 10 June in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The first installation of the JETvarnish 3D Evolution took place at a leading French commercial printer in March 2016. More installations will follow in the short term.
