JETvarnish 3D Web

The JETvarnish 3D Web delivers exceptional print enhancement value to the label market. The JETvarnish 3D Web allows label printers to go digital for Spot UV Coating and Embossed Hot Foiling without dies, screens or expensive tooling on narrow webs up to 420 mm/16.53”.

The JETvarnish 3D Web is designed for both 2D (flat)/3D Embossed Spot Coating over flexo, offset or digital web-fed printed output. Hot Foiling can be added with glamorous metallic and colored foils to embellish label designs. A digitally finished label by the MGI solution provides eye-catching sensory enhancements and dramatic tactile sensations that brand owners are looking for to distinguish their products in the marketplace.

The JETvarnish 3D Web also has an inline flexo station that applies a pre-coating treatment to label substrates not originally planned for inkjet processing. This elegant, flexible solution offers a great compatibility advantage to label printers who use a diverse range of printing technology (digital, offset or flexo).

The JETvarnish 3D Web gives extra added-value and sensory dimensional textures to printed label 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.

UV Flexo Station

An integrated flexo station for full size sleeve coating in rotary. This station is used to apply a UV protection varnish or primer prior to finishing.

The module comes with an UV dryer.

The station is equipped with an anilox cylinder.

Additional anilox cylinders are available as upgrade options.

Spot UV and Embossing Station

This station uses MGI award-winning inkjet technology for producing Spot UV Coating. Any defined label area can receive Spot UV Coating with or without raised 3D texture effects.

A simple grey level TIFF file designed by Prepress controls the surface area and the thickness of the varnish applied over the printed roll. This 100% Digital process eliminates traditional plates, screens and dies.

  •  Varnish thickness

From 7* to 232* µm of varnish thickness (from 2D flat coats to 3D raised effects).

  • Inline curing

The unit is equipped with UV dryer and a cooling drum for optimum web temperature control.

The curing sequence also includes a special forward and backward roll motion to dry each label and eliminate waste between runs.

  • UV Varnish

Gloss varnish 99 GU.

*confirm substrate compatibility with MGI.

Hot Foiling Station

The hot foiling station adds luxurious effects and brand value to label and packaging products. Any defined label area can receive digitally-controlled foil with or without raised effects.

A simple grey level TIF file designed by Prepress controls the surface area and the definition of the foil applied on the printed roll. This 100% digital process eliminates traditional dies, plates and screens.

Foil application can be bypassed when not necessary.

Foil rolls

  • Foils are delivered on rolls:
    – Foil widths from 100 mm/3.9‘‘up to 420mm/16.5 ‘‘

    – Foil lengths from 400 m / 1,310 ft up to 2,000 m/6,500 ft
  • Up to 3 simultaneous foil rolls in the width.

Servo-motorized unit

  • 850 mm/33.4’’ maximum roll diameter capacity
  • Standard inside core diameter: 3 inches
  • Maximum roll weight: ± 120 kg/264 lbs

Corona substrate treatment module

In-line system made to optimize varnish adhesion on complex printed substrates.

Variable Data Printing

  • Manage and edit files on the workstation.
  • Full variable data (text, graphic, image) for both 2D/3D Spot Coating and Hot Foiling areas.
  • Integrated barcode (1D/2D) reader system & controller.
