At PRINT 13, MGI (Booth 3213) presented two upgrades to the JETvarnish 3D: a Twin option which doubles the coating speed or coating thickness in a single pass plus a new inline foil module (iFoil). With the introduction of the JETvarnish 3D Twin, 3D raised effects can be applied at speeds up to 2,234 12×18” sheets per hour, which doubles the speed compared to the standard JETvarnish 3D configuration. MGI’s patented inkjet technology features a fixed head configuration, producing the new speed boost in just one pass while maintaining precise registration.

 Meteor DP8700 XL Digital Press Meteor DP8700 XL - All Doors closedOne of the key trends for printers is finding ways to add value to print. MGI’s (Booth 3213) toner and inkjet product lines allow printers to offer capabilities that allow them to stand out from their peers and generate new profit potential. The Meteor DP8700 XL prints on a wide range of papers and synthetics plus envelopes, in sheet sizes up to 13×40″ in production with no click charge. These capabilities make new applications like oversize book covers, eight-page brochures, posters, plastic cards, specialty items, and full color envelopes possible.
