JETvarnish 3D EVO

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 withup to 4,200 ISO B2 sheets size per hour (70.7×50 cm/19.7×27.8’’). Its 8-up format (up to 75×120 cm/29×47’’) 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
  • MGI’s exclusive inkjet engine technology
  • Drop-on-Demand (Dod) inkjet application
  • Piezoelectric print heads in single pass printing
  • Flexible & scalable architecture
Coating Thicknesses

Depending on your file and the substrate used, the coating thickness can vary from a traditional flat spot UV coating of 3* microns (µm) up to 232* µm for 3D raised texture effects and a tactile finish.

* confirm substrate/lamintation/toner/metallic film compatibility with MGI.
