MGI’s JET Varnish 3D with iFoil: a success story

In a short span of time, Konica Minolta’s MGI JET Varnish 3D with iFoil has surpassed the company’s expectations, with an unprecedented positive response from printing businesses.

When Varun B Corporation decided to set up a printing business in Surat, Gujarat offering packaging boxes to traders and manufacturers, the company gradually witnessed a soar in demand from customers which pushed it to deploy more automated solutions for increased efficiency and outputs. “In due course of time as the trade flourished we ventured into the automation of the setup and started the process of upgradation and by the year of 2008 had a complete revamp of the setup,’’ said Varun Aggarwal of Varun B Corporation.

After reviewing a host of digital industrial printing solutions in the market, the company finally deployed MGI’s Jet Varnish 3D with iFoil from Konica Minolta India, offering exceptionally precise spot coating handling digital or offset originals with inline Digital Foiling system.

“While finalising the machine we already had a sample folder printed on the MGI which assisted in developing the market even before the machine was installed and by the time the machine arrived we already had a handful of orders waiting for the process and value addition on the MGI,” said Aggarwal

Congratulating Konica Minolta for its unprecedented service assistant as well as cutting edge features of MGI Jet Varnish 3D with iFoil, he further adds, “By the addition of this machine, the customers are surely experiencing a better result and a different view of the designing layouts which previously were not usable, but this machine gave an addition dimension and vision to the traditional designing concepts.”

The JETvarnish 3D with iFoil also comes equipped with ARC registration technology (Automated Registration Camera) designed to calibrate (on-the-fly) coating registration from sheet to sheet. The ARC system ensures accurate spot UV coating, even on jobs with inconsistent print registration, a traditional obstacle for those wishing to spot UV coat jobs printed on some digital presses. The JetVarnish is equipped with AIS SmartScanner, an artificial intelligence registration technology. The only print registration solution in the world that individually makes adjustments and corrections for each printed sheet. It requires no registration marks and treats each sheet like a separate, unique job. The cost-savings are dramatic. It significantly reduces time-consuming, expensive setup processes and job monitoring work tasks. Increased operational productivity and improved quality on every piece produced are the result of MGI’s major innovation in print registration technology

The industry leading JET Varnish 3D with iFoil takes digital spot UV coating to an entirely new level with increased throughput for flat spot UV jobs and astounding 3D raised effects.
