MGI JETvarnish 3D Evolution

>>This product is part of the following solutions

The JETvarnish 3D Evo is the world's first B1+ scalable sheet-fed Digital Enhancement Press and features a modular and field upgradeable architecture, digital foiling and an upgradeable inkjet expansion system with three available substrate size options ranging from 52x120cm (standard) to 64x120cm and 75x120cm. The production speed of JETvarnish 3D Evo 75 achieves more than 4,000 B2 sheets an hour.


B1+ Size Format Designed for the Packaging Market

The B1+ size format option is designed to give printers and converters the ability to run fully personalized short, medium and long runs without expensive tooling for packaging applications. Every piece finished on all of MGI's JETvarnish 3D Evo systems can be a unique blend of digitally-embellished images, text, data and brand designs using spot varnish, 3D raised varnish and digitally embossed foil in one pass.


High-Production Solution

The JETvarnish 3D Evo is an high-production solution that incorporates a revolutionary artificial intelligence-based sheet registration system, automated inkjet head cleaning, pallet stacking and feeding systems, all of which will be unveiled and launched at Drupa.

Spot UV Coating

UV inkjet Technology

MGI’s exclusive inkjet engine technology
Drop-on-Demand (Dod) inkjet application
Piezoelectric print heads in single pass printing
Flexible & scalable architecture

Coating Thicknesses

Depending on your file and the substrate used, the coating thickness can vary from a traditional flat spot UV coating of 3 microns (µm) up to 200 µm for 3D raised texture effects and a tactile finish.

Production Speed

Up to 3,000(1) B2 sheets size per hour for all versions.
When printable width is enabled to 75cm/29’’ print speed can reach up to 4,065(2) B2 sheets per hour with a landscape rotation of the sheet.

(1) speed will vary according to printing parameter used.
(2) with the 75cm/ 29’’ Evo kit.


Left & right motorized registration side guides. Automatic registration using a built-in scanner for real-time management of entire sheet. No registration marks required.
