The JETvarnish 3D Web print enhancement press is a 100% digital solution for 2D/3D UV raised spot coats, dimensional textures, embossed Variable Data Foiling and artistic CMYK highlights. These eye-catching decorative special effects are now available without the traditionally expensive use of dyes, screens or tooling on label rolls up to 16.5” (420mm) and at speeds up to 8220 ft./hr. (2520 m/hr.). The judges on the Label Industry Global Awards jury recognized this MGI technology advancement by awarding it a Finalist status for the Innovation Award category. The winner will be announced at the official opening night banquet of the show.
“MGI’s corporate motto is ‘Innovation in Motion’ and it reflects our commitment to developing products that benefit the entire marketplace,” said Kevin Abergel, MGI VP of marketing & sales.
Since its world premiere at the quadrennial Drupa 2016exhibition in Germany, the JETvarnish 3D Web has received numerous awards for innovation, technical excellence and promoting future growth in the packaging and label industries.
