MGI will be showcasing samples from the JETvarnish 3D inkjet spot UV coater, along with its newest innovation, the iFOIL. The JETvarnish 3D inkjet spot UV coater, recent winner of the 2013 InterTech Technology Award from the Printing Industries of America, takes digital spot UV coating to the next dimension. Known for its tactile effects, the JETvarnish 3D provides a value-added service by having both 3D and traditional flat spot UV coating together in one production unit- giving graphics professionals a dual set of tools to increase profitability. The JETvarnish 3D produces visually striking pieces that will allow customers to have unique customization options that traditional and analog spot UV coating methods cannot provide.
In 2014, embossing and hot foil stamping went digital. The newest upgrade to the JETvarnish 3D inkjet spot UV coater is the iFOIL module, the first production solution in the world capable of doing both embossing and hot foil stamping in a fully digital process. The iFOIL won the “Best New Production Equipment” award at the 58th Annual Packaging Oscar ceremony in Paris, proving to be a widely successful addition to the JETvarnish 3D system. iFOIL’s new 100% digital process streamlines production by allowing variable data creation of embossed and hot foil stamped effects, with each sheet being different from the previous. The iFOIL module also allows for a large scope of colors, including metallic and holographic films making it a one-of-a-kind in the foil and embossing industry.
