MGI JETVARNISH 3DS & iFOIL S @ Futura Infinite:
The installation of the innovative UV coating and hot foiling solution has since helped the firm venture into new printing segments and offer its customer base a range of high-quality printing services to choose from.
Commenting on the installation, Deepak Boggaram, Director, Futura Infinite, Bengaluru said, “The cutting-edge printing capabilities of the MGI JETVARNISH 3DS and IFOIL S offer advanced and seamless functionalities that have enabled us to carry out a whole new range of high-quality printing jobs. Moreover, the machine’s innovative 3D spot coating and hot foil stamping features have added considerably to our overall efficiency in specialized printing jobs, while its high output has augmented our productivity to a great extent. We are indeed thankful to Konica Minolta for its support during and after the installation process of the machine which enabled us to get the equipment up and running in no time.”
The JETVARNISH 3Ds and IFOIL S printer utilizes MGI’s patented inkjet and hot foil stamping technology to provide digital spot UV coating in plain 2D and 3D (with thickness of up to 200 microns) and embossed foil textured effects in one pass. The digital spot UV coating process is 100% variable data capable, with barcode reader options that enable custom spot varnished prints with unique graphics, text, and numeric data. With the new varnish formula in combination with the Konica Minolta print heads, users can create a 3D effect on laminated surfaces or on toner directly. The digitization of the spot UV finishing allows printing businesses to take a few sheets from each job and spot UV coat it to produce sellable proofs, enabling customers to see, touch and feel the effect with various types of printing jobs.
Vijay Kamat, National Product Manager – Industrial Print, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India, commented, “We are committed to identifying appropriate solutions to match our clients’ printing requirements and delivering the best-in-class printing technology to help them augment their production capabilities. We also provide them complete support throughout, to ensure seamless and sustainable production by helping them capitalize on the technology to grow and scale their business, enhance their productivity, and increase their profitability. We are extremely glad with the positive response from Futura Infinite, and are looking to help more printing businesses across the country with our innovative range of printing solutions.”
