MGI Launches First Digital Roll-to-Roll Print Enhancement System for Labels and Flexible Packaging


The JETvarnish 3DW and iFOIL W system is an integrated, roll-to-roll print embellishment solution ideally suited to the label and flexible packaging marketplace. It provides critical customisation and ‘Foil-on-Demand’ (FOD) short run capabilities for runs from one to 100000 pieces, as well as Variable Data Foiling (VDF) options for mass personalisation for every piece produced. The company will preview the the product at Labelexpo 2015 in Brussels.

The new system adds valuable shelf impact with colorful, luxurious and eye-catching special effects that improve brand identification and consumer perception. For printers and converters, the new MGI digital system supports the strengthening of customer relationships via rapid prototyping, short run customization and production-strength power.

The system produces 2D spot UV coating, 3D embossed varnish textures and embossed foil effects all in one pass.
