Konica Minolta unveils digital embellishment press

Konica Minolta has launched MGI JETvarnish 3D One

Konica Minolta has launched MGI JETvarnish 3D One, a simple and compact embellishment press that provides sensory print applications developed as a compact, cost-effective, entry-level technology.

The company invested in the press as part of its mission to create opportunities for printers to increase and diversify their revenue streams. ‘Growth in the decorative embellishment area will be a real differentiator for many commercial printers who will be able to charge a high margin for the service,’ said Dino Pagliarello, vice president of product management and planning at Konica Minolta.

The MGI JETvarnish 3D One press has been designed to bring digital special effects to the mainstream of the commercial printing, finishing and packaging industries. It utilizes key components of the JETvarnish technology, including the intelligent and adaptive AIS SmartScanner registration system, and is designed for a compact, cost-effective, entry-level press.

The small operational footprint allows printers, finishers and converters to have an in-house full production and prototyping, print embellishment system without screens, dies or plates. The 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.
