JETvarnish 3D Evolution

Discover the new flagship of the JETvarnish product family, the JETvarnish 3D Evolution for B1+ format.
The JETvarnish 3D Evolution (Evo) has been specially designed to offer digital and offset printers a scalable upgrade_path for a full range of production environments and postpress applications.

The JETvarnish 3D Evo delivers high-volume productivity with up to 3,300 B2 sheets size per hour (52x74 cm/20x29’’). Its 8-up format (up to 75x120 cm/29x47’’) delivers dynamic performance for the most demanding applications in the fastest growing markets – including packaging.

The JETvarnish 3D Evo gives extra added-value and sensory dimensional textures to printed output. The 100% digital technology provides quick prototyping, short run customization flexibility and the ability to use variable data for personalizing text & graphics on every piece produced.

Spot UV Coating
UV inkjet Technology• MGI’s exclusive inkjet engine technology
• Drop-on-Demand (Dod) inkjet application
• Piezoelectric print heads in single pass printing
• Flexible & scalable architecture
Coating ThicknessesDepending on your file and the substrate used, the
coating thickness can vary from a traditional flat spot
UV coating of 6 microns (µm) up to 200 µm for 3D
raised texture effects and a tactile finish.
Production SpeedUp to 3,000(1) B2 sheets size per hour for all versions.
When printable width is enabled to 75cm/29’’
print speed can reach up to 3,300 (2) B2 sheets per
hour with a landscape rotation of the sheet.
