MGI Digital Graphic Technology, the Ivry sur Seine, France-based digital press and finishing solution manufacturer, will present a portfolio of digital printing and finishing solutions at Ipex (hall 20, booth C624). Highlights include the new DF360 5-in-1 multifunction paper finishing system and JETcard digital inkjet card printing system, along with the Meteor DP60 Pro multisubstrate digital press and expanded capabilities for the JETvarnish digital inkjet spot UV coater.

In advance of IPEX, MGI has launched a dedicated Web site for the event, where attendees can view interactive presentations on the entire product line, plus book one-on-one demonstrations and appointments at MGI’s stand.  

The DF360 is MGI’s latest generation of multi-function paper finishing equipment designed to complement both digital and offset presses. Inline and automated standard functions include: duplex lamination (options for matte, satin or glossy finish; no lamination; or multiple finishes – i.e. matte on one side, satin on other); cutting (horizontal and vertical); slitting; creasing; and perforation.

With the addition of a lamination function, the DF360 brings many common finishing techniques together, performed in just one pass. It can accommodate sheet widths up to 360 mm / 14 inches and lengths up to 740 mm / 29 inches, making it suited to applications such as book covers, brochures, tickets, business cards, photo books, invitations (with tear-off response card) and menus.

The award-winning flagship of MGI’s digital printing line, the Meteor DP60 Pro, features:

  • Compatible substrates including paper, plastics/synthetics (including specialty substrates such as canvas) and envelopes, up to 350 gsm/130 lb Cover/14 mil for paper and up to 400 microns /16 mil for plastics
  • Super Format print capabilities accommodate up to 330 x 1020 mm (13" x 40”) sheets in production, the largest cut sheet size among professional digital presses
  • Laser-safe prints, ideal for letterhead, envelopes and other applications previously only produced via offset
  • No click charge and an economical total cost of operation
  • Fogra┬« certification (ISO 12647-7) for color contract proof creation
  • High level print quality and registration (offset comparable)

JETvarnish – new capabilities for 2010:

  • New left and right guides allow for alignment to offset gripper marks on either side of the sheet, resulting in the most precise registration
  • Expanded sheet sizes up to 52 x 105 cm / 20” x 40”, ideal for extended size applications such as book covers, gang runs, presentation folders, packaging, signage and many others
  • Option to add a 2nd print line to be used with either a single ink color (perfect for bar codes and other Variable Data Printing applications) or a 2nd varnish formula
With the JETcard, MGI builds upon 30 years of proven experience in the plastic card manufacturing industry to present an all-inclusive inkjet card printing solution that maximizes productivity for higher volumes, but is also cost-effective for shorter runs of both secure and non-secure card applications.
