If you are a digital or an offset printer who is looking to differentiate your offering, take a look at this high-end spot UV varnishing and foiling device - MGI JETvarnish 3D Evolution (JV3D). 


The machine can turn plain printed jobs into remarkable and appealing prints by spot coating digital and offset prints, highlighting defined areas, or adding tactile 3D effects. 


The JV3D was developed and manufactured by Konica Minolta’s strategic partner MGI, and has recently been incorporated into Konica Minolta’s product portfolio. It applies spot UV coating as a top layer to make prints more vivid, tactile and exclusive. The varnish adds a creative touch to a wide range of applications, including luxury packaging, book covers, business cards or greeting cards, brochures, flyers, posters, magazines, photo books, and many more.


This makes the JV3D Evolution an interesting add-on product for more or less any print provider operating toner, offset or inkjet print systems.


With the JV3D it is easy to spot coat digital and offset prints, highlight defined areas, or add 3D effects – all of which create attractive print products that are more vivid and tactile. When combined with inline hot foiling module additional glamorous effects are possible.


German print provider druckpartner Druck- und Medienhaus GmbH is the first operation to invest in the high-end B1 spot UV varnishing and foiling device. 



According to Klaus Schotte, registered manager at druckpartner, by simplifying the production process, introducing the new JV3D Evolution has also led to significantly faster production speeds. 


“Being able to produce in-house is particularly time saving, as intermediate logistics with external printers becomes unnecessary. The same goes for technical coordination with another supplier: Projects can be managed and handled on site, written briefings or even print dummies for third parties become obsolete. The accounting department is benefiting as well, as it is relieved of having to negotiate the necessary supplier contracts or manage invoices.


“The JV3D is really helping us create a USP, broaden our offer base and create products that really trigger customers’ emotions. This decreases price sensitivity by creating additional value,” he said.


The JV3D Evolution is used to add value to existing print jobs and make them more spectacular. The device is the ideal digital solution for digital and offset print providers, and turns printed jobs into remarkable and appealing print products that will immediately catch the at­tention of the end customer and provides an added value to the print product.



JV3D is available in three sizes from B2 to B1. It delivers high volume productivity with up to 4,065 B2 size sheets per hour, offers remarkable registration and the ability to create brilliant and highly profitable 2D and 3D effects with up to 200 micron in a single pass.
