A B Graphic International (ABG) has expanded the range of modules for its Digicon Series 3 with the latest digital technology DigiJet (JetFX) allowing for multiple embellishment processes in one pass.
DigiJet offers an on-line or off-line fully digital embellishment. It allows for multiple processes in one pass including spot varnishing, digital foiling and tactile screen on any size of print run. Its main features include two inkjet heads with UV pinning and UV curing, automated cold foil throw-off, a shuttle system for zero waste and stop start at job changeover, chill rollers for sensitive materials, pre-press software and food compliant fluids.
It is currently available in single bar or dual bar configurations, with the easily adjustable quantity of varnish to a height of up to 225 microns. Jobs can be automatically changed on the fly and the new module can be integrated with workflow and MIS.
The DigiJet module has been already installed in a number of Digicon Series 3 machines, including UK-based converters Springfield Solutions and Baker Labels. It can be also retrofitted to existing machines.
‘DigiJet is a revolutionary module for the digital market,’ commented Matt Burton, ABG’s global sales director. ‘With technology improving all the time, digital embellishment is where the future is - perfect for short runs, no tooling costs, the ability to change jobs quickly, variable data, personalization and dramatically reduced lead times. DigiJet will undoubtedly be a game-changer for many of our customers.’
ABG has also released an explainer video to accompany the launch of the DigiJet embellishment module offering more technical insight into this new technology.
