Konica Minolta reveals the MGI JetVarnish 3D One digital print embellishment press

February 18, 2020 - Konica Minolta Australia has announced it will release the MGI JV 3D One press, an entry-level MGI UV Varnish solution, in April this year. The new press offers commercial printers an accessible and affordable option for 2D and 3D varnish effects that will add more value to what printers can offer their customers.

The MGI JV 3D One digital embellishment press was first introduced to the market at PRINTING United in October, 2019. The new press is a part of MGI’s JETVarnish range available from Konica Minolta and was designed to be complimentary with its AccurioPress and AccurioPrint digital print systems or as a standalone embellishment system.

The MGI JV 3D One press can be used for a variety of applications, including packaging, books, magazines, business cards, menus, photobooks and greeting cards. It is simple to use, compact, and has a smaller operational footprint than previous MGI models. It is highly efficient and can process up to 3500 A4 sheets per hour on a range of sheet sizes up to of 364 x 750mm.

Sue Threlfo, general manager, production and industrial print, Konica Minolta Australia, said, “The MGI JV 3D One will give all commercial printers access to an embellishment press regardless of their size, offering them a way to differentiate themselves and stand out from competitors. Rather than outsourcing embellishment printing, commercial printers can leverage the MGI JV 3D One to do embellishment in-house. Digital embellishment offers printers the opportunity to add value to the printed page and subsequently achieve margins.

The MGI JV 3D One press features include:

  • digital print embellishment with UV coating and embossing
  • spot varnish editor for job modification
  • varying varnish thickness, between 21 and 116 micron in one pass
  • AIS SmartScanner registration technology which will minimise crop marks, waste and set-up time
  • a job cost calculator with job management tool
  • both 2D and 3D tactile effects.  

Sue Threlfo said, “Konica Minolta and MGI work very closely to meet the needs of customers with the right solutions and products for the right applications. For Konica Minolta, service and support are paramount, so customers can rest assured their presses will be reliable and, when maintenance is required, they’ll be up and running again with minimal disruption.”

The MGI JV 3DOne digital press is expected to be released in April, 2020.
