Bridging the gap between digital & offset printing

JETvarnish 3DW


The JETvarnish 3DW delivers exceptional print enhancement value to the label market. The JETvarnish 3DW 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 3DW 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 3DW 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 W 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.

Flexo Station

- optional -
An integrated flexo station for full size sleeve coating in rotary. This station is used to apply a UV primer coat prior to finishing. The module comes with UV dryer.
The station is equipped with an anilox cylinder. Additional anilox cylinders are available as upgrade options. A servo option is available for UV spot coating and roll stop synchronization between labels.

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 TIF 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 3 to 200 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.

Hot Foiling Station

- optional -
• 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 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.
