MGI Digital Graphic Technology, the leading manufacturer of multi-substrate digital printing and finishing solutions, will showcase the award-winning JETvarnish 3D inkjet spot UV coater along with the Meteor DP8700 XL digital press at Graphics of the Americas (booth 723), held February 21-23 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

JETvarnish 3D inkjet spot UV coater
The JETvarnish 3D, honored as a Must See ‘em at GRAPH EXPO 2012, builds on the worldwide commercial success of the JETvarnish inkjet spot UV coater, giving graphics professionals a dual set of tools to increase profitability - traditional flat spot UV coating and new 3D raised effects, together for the first time in one production unit.

The JETvarnish 3D features flat spot UV coating at speeds up to 3,000 20 x 29" sheets per hour and new 3D raised effects up to 100 microns in thickness. Variation of thickness within the same design is possible through file management, allowing texture creation. These beautiful tactile effects allow end users to differentiate their brands and add a new dimension of visual appeal to a wide range of projects, such as book covers, brochures, business cards, pocket folders, postcards, packaging, photo books, greeting cards, announcements and more. The JETvarnish 3D’s 100% digital operation requires no plates, screens or expensive makeready, perfect for runs from one to thousands or more. 

Other key features include sheet sizes up to 20x42”, full variable data capabilities, a new camera system that ensures precise registration to printed pages and spot UV coating directly onto most digital or offset prints with no lamination required.

While the official launch of the JETvarnish 3D took place in late fall 2012, there are already many installations throughout the world, including in the United States, Europe and Africa.

Meteor DP8700 XL multi-substrate digital press
The most versatile digital press in the global graphics market, the flagship Meteor DP8700 XL offers users key differentiators including the widest range of substrates (paper, plastics & envelopes), the largest sheet size among production sheetfed digital presses (up to 40" in production), laser-safe prints via oil-free, dry toner, no click charge and an economical total cost of operation.
