One of the firms, Heret Printing & Packaging, headquartered in Yavne, has upgraded and expanded its operations with a new JETvarnish 3D Evolution B1+/Full Sheet platform (29x47”) after successfully using their original JETvarnish 3D press B2+ around the clock for the last three years.
Skitza, a top trade finishing house in Tel Aviv, acquired a JETvarnish 3D B2+ press to help them add value to both offset and digital prints across a spectrum of commercial printing applications. Additionally, another major packaging printer and converter that specializes in developing brand campaigns and new product launches with both label and flexible packaging designs purchased a roll-fed JETvarnish 3D Web press. (At the customer’s request, the company name is being withheld until later in the year.)
Since 1936, Heret Printing has delivered production printing and packaging solutions to a wide variety of industries. Heret provides dedicated design, distribution and supply-chain services to international brands such as Soda Stream, Ahava, Sabon, The Body Shop and many more. While producing many different applications, Heret has a specialized expertise for providing luxurious and brand-centric folding carton and label solutions to the cosmetic, beauty and healthcare markets.
In March 2015, Heret Printing invested in an MGI JETvarnish 3D to add value to all of their digital and offset presses – including their HP Indigo 30000, which was the first installation of that product worldwide. To achieve all the advantages and benefits of a completely digital production workflow, they organized their operation so the JETvarnish 3D would be able to add valuable finishing effects to both the HP press and their legacy offset printing equipment.
Now, three years of successful high-volume production later, they’ve upgraded to a brand new B1+ JETvanish 3D Evolution (Evo) to further increase their capacity to deliver dramatically decorative print embellishments – and expand their sales and service capacity to even greater national levels. The JETvarnish 3D Evo was the first B1+/Full sheet digital enhancement press in the world when it was launched at drupa 2016 and has since been installed in many countries and on four continents.
MGI JETvarnish 3D presses produce digitally decorated special effects such as detailed 2D spot gloss highlights, artistic 3D dimensional textures and richly embossed foil applications The JETvarnish 3D Series also offers powerful variable data processing capabilities to produce personalized and customized images and alpha-numeric text on every piece and job.
In collaboration with MGI’s global business partner, Konica Minolta, the JETvarnish 3D Series will be demonstrated live at the upcoming Labelexpo Americas (Sept. 25-27) and Print 18 (Sept. 30-Oct. 2) trade shows in Chicago.
