Meteor Unlimited Colors XL+

Meteor Unlimited Colors XL+ is a powerful range of new digital print production systems. It features MGI Meteor DP8700 XL+ digital press fully integrated with MGI’s award-winning iFOIL module to create inline printing and hot foiling solutions that go far beyond a simple 5th or 6th color.

Print Service Providers (PSPs) and converters are now able to produce output with a virtually unlimited number of colors via the blending of CMYK toner and the reflective qualities of foil – including a rainbow spectrum of hues with metallic, glitter and holographic effects.

The Meteor Unlimited Colors XL+ system uses a 100% digital process to create new types of color palettes. This unique printing press and postpress foiling system completely eliminates the cost and need for die-making and traditional makeready setup times and waste. A wide variety of standard market foils – and colors, patterns and designs - can be used to create brilliant (and highly profitable) special effects. Paper formats supported from 110x220 mm to 330x1200 mm (13x47").
