MGI Digital Graphic Technology will be exhibiting at the 2015 Graphics of the Americas show, taking place in Miami Beach from 26-28 February.
Amid the many technologies to be highlighted at GOA’s 40th anniversary show, MGI will have two award winning duos: the JETvarnish 3D spot UV coater with inline digital foiling iFOIL module and the multi-substrate Meteor DP8700 XL+ digital press with the brand new inline DF Pro finishing system.
MGI’s JETvarnish 3D is now more powerful with a new field upgradeable option, allowing for doubling ‘T2’ production speeds and the ability to digitally coat up to 300 microns in one pass on formats up to 52x105cm (20” x 40’’). In addition to the increased speed, the new barcode reaction camera system will allow users to digitally emboss or spot varnish variable data by reading printed barcodes and recalling the correct images in the workstation to varnish with ease.
The JETvarnish 3D ‘T2’ can be connected to MGI’s award-winning iFOIL module to create 100% digital hot foiling inline. The iFOIL does not require use of dies, plates or make-ready, allowing this innovative duo to create a tactile elegance never seen before on demand. The JETvarnish 3D and iFOIL’s combined abilities produce a revolutionary new process for personalised foil in short runs, generating never before seen opportunities.
MGI will also be showcasing the newest member to the Meteor family of digital presses, the Meteor DP8700 XL+, which brings a sizeable upgrade in quality, format sizing, thicknesses and more. The Meteor DP8700 XL+ is a versatile toner-based digital press with true multi-substrate capabilities for paper, plastics and envelopes. Designed to maximise production and ease of operation, the Meteor DP8700 XL+ boasts a variety of value-added capabilities including laser-safe prints, offset comparable output, and ability to print up to 119.38cm (47") long.
Also available for live demonstrations, the DF Pro is a newly developed finishing solution that works inline (or offline) with the Meteor digital press to create a fully finished piece from start to finish. The DF Pro can reach up to 4260 finished sheets per hour, and for any given document up to 20 distinct operations can be applied all in one pass, such as: horizontal and vertical cutting, positive and negative creasing and horizontal and vertical perforating. The ability to complete jobs in one pass will save both time and money, making the DF Pro a valuable addition to the Meteor digital press line.
