Enhance Your Label Printing Business with JETvarnish 3D Web

Singapore | 1 July 2023

In the age of personalisation, one-size-fits-all doesn't cut it anymore. Brands are on the lookout for label printing partners capable of delivering tailor-made outputs that engage with their target audience. If you're in the label printing business, it's time to redefine what’s possible in label aesthetics with Konica Minolta's JETvarnish 3D Web.

More than just an industrial printing machine, it's a transformative tool that elevates the intricacies of every label you produce for your clientele. Explore the features and benefits that the JETvarnish 3D Web brings to the table:

1. Hot foiling: Elevate every label to luxury

If you are aiming to impress, the hot foiling feature of the JETvarnish 3D Web will be your secret weapon. You can apply this to common substrates like paper, light cardboard, and the more challenging uncoated materials. 

By nature, uncoated materials present a rougher finish, making it tricky to achieve accurate colour registration and alignment. The absorbent nature of uncoated materials can also lead to inconsistencies in the foiling process.

Recognising these industry-specific concerns, the JETvarnish 3D Web integrates the Inline Rotary Flexo UV Station, ensuring an exceptional adherence of hot foil even on uncoated materials. The result isn’t just a visually appealing label, but one that offers a tactile richness. The subtle raise of the foil signifies quality, assuring clients of your label's premium nature. Whether it is for luxury products or specialised branding needs, you can now guarantee clients an impeccable hot foiled result on a broader array of materials.

2. UV coating: Give your labels a durable shine

Traditional methods can sometimes fall short in delivering that standout quality which modern brands seek. However, with the innovative in-line 2D and 3D spot UV coating solutions provided by the JETvarnish 3D Web, these challenges are effectively addressed. 

2D UV coating blankets your labels with a consistent, flat finish, accentuating graphic details. The coating adds a layer of protection against scratches, moisture, and fading, increasing the durability of the printed piece.

Taking it a notch higher, 3D spot UV coating introduces a tangible layer of distinction. By creating tactile elevations on printed materials, you can offer the dual advantage of full protection and multi-dimensional experiences. With the integration of these technologies into your label printing process, you not only ensure top-notch quality but also offer clients embellishments that sets their products apart in the market.

3. Die-cutting unit: Precision with versatility 

An indispensable tool for industrial printers, the die-cutting unit is where the label designs truly take shape. The JETvarnish 3D Web offers an optional semi-rotary die-cutting unit, allowing for in-line finishing of labels. This ensures seamless integration from printing to final shape-cutting, reducing the time and potential errors of external processes. 

Moreover, it comes equipped with two standard slitter knives, enhancing your flexibility in design executions. The gap master system only bolsters this precision, ensuring every cut is sharp, clean, and perfectly aligned, producing labels of unmatched quality and design consistency.

4. High production speed: Set new standards in efficiency

With the rising demand for label sticker printing, you’ll need the speed to match. With its capability to achieve speeds of up to 42 metres per minute, the JETvarnish 3D Web is designed to cater to businesses with a pulse on the market's demands. This means drastically reduced lead times, allowing your business to take on larger orders and deliver them with confidence. It ensures that tight deadlines, often considered a bottleneck, are met with ease. 

Combined with the MGI Artificial Intelligence Smartscanner (AIS), your label printing process takes on an unparalleled edge. Unlike other printing methods that rely heavily on registration marks, AIS revolutionises the workflow by eliminating their need. This not only shaves off precious minutes from the make-ready time but also eradicates potential errors and waste that can arise from manual alignment and calibration.

Redefining the boundaries of your label printing business

The landscape of label printing is ever-evolving. With the global print label market anticipated to reach $54.28 billion by 2027, businesses must leverage the latest printing technology to remain at the forefront. Stay not just one, but several steps ahead with the JETvarnish 3D Web

Offering UV coating, luxurious hot foiling, and more features, this is the industrial printing machine your business deserves. Elevate your label game and let the world see your commitment to quality.
