Konica Minolta to launch entry-level embellishment machine
Konica Minolta announced the MGI JETvarnish 3D One, which is described as a simple, compact and affordable digital embellishment press that provides sensory print applications for printers of every size.
The press was first unveiled last October in the US during PRINTING United. According to Konica Minolta Business Solutions Asia, the MGI JETvarnish 3D One is likely to be launched in the Asian region by Q3. Stay tuned for further news.
The MGI JETvarnish 3D One digital print embellishment press represents a major new advancement in bringing digital special effects to the mainstream of the commercial printing, finishing and packaging industries.
This new press utilizes key components of the PIA InterTech Award winning JETvarnish technology – including the intelligent and adaptive AIS SmartScanner registration system – and is designed for a compact, cost-effective, entry-level solution for all printers.
The small operational footprint of the JETvarnish 3D One allows printers, finishers and converters to have an in-house full production and prototyping print embellishment system without screens, dies or plates.
The all-purpose patented varnish formula allows both flat 2D Spot UV highlighting and sculptured 3D raised special effects on a wide range of substrate stocks and up to 450gsm, from offset and digital inks to lamination films and aqueous coatings.
This expansion of MGI’s JETvarnish 3D Series digital print enhancement technology offers a full spectrum of 2D/3D spot coating and dimensional textures for everyone. The cost-effective price point and automatic inkjet head cleaning technology, along with the AIS SmartScanner intelligent registration system, creates a simple, convenient path for developing new digital finishing applications and diverse new application-based revenue streams.
