Spot UV Coating
|Printing Technology||MGI's inkjet UV
Drop-on-Demand (DoD) technology
Piezo heads mounted on a solid plate covering the entire sheet width
Single pass printing. Flexible & scalable printing architecture
|Coating Thicknesses||Depending on your file and the paper used, the coating thickness can vary:
- from 3 microns (µm) same as a traditional flat spot UV coating
- up to 200µm for 3D raised effects and a tactile finish.
|Production Speed||Up to 3, 000 B2 sheet size per hour (flat spot UV coating)
First page out in 16 sec. (no preheating or system latency)
|Registration||Left & right side lay guides on either side of the sheet. Overall registration of +/- 200 microns.
New revolutionary registration process using the latest MGI AIS scanner to fully automate the make-ready and a perfect sheet to sheet registration
21x30 cm / 8 x 11.8”
|Paper Thickness||From 135 to 600 gsm
with motorized height-adjustment print heads
|Substrates||Spot Coating and Hot Foiling can be applied directly on offset printouts with or without lamination, with or without aqueous/UV coatings. Also compatible with plastic, PVC, Polypropylene and other coated materials.
NEW - 3D spot UV coat directly onto digital prints (ie. MGI Meteor) with no lamination or coating required.
|Printing Area||51.5x73.5 cm (standard)
51.5x104.5 cm (extended)
|Coating and Special Inks||New UV coatings specially formulated - with or without 3D raised effects|
|Yields||The JETvarnish 3D now comes standard with 2 coating tanks and 2 coating circuits allowing a quick changeover between coatings. The first tank has a high capacity volume (18 liters / 4.7 US gal.). The second one is a recyclable 6 liters / 1.59 US gallon bag.
“On-the-fly” tank changeover possible during production without any interruption.
Capacity of ink circuit during operation - approximately 1 liter / 0.26 US gal.
