Spot UV Coating Machine

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

Formats Minimum:
21x30 cm / 8 x 11.8”

52x74 cm / 20x29" (regular size)
52x105 cm / 20x42” (extended size)

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.
