UV Flexo Station An integrated flexo station for full size sleeve coating in
rotary. This station is used to apply a UV protection varnish
or primer prior to finishing. The module comes with an UV
dryer. The station is equipped with an anilox cylinder.
Additional anilox cylinders are available as upgrade options.
Spot UV Coating and
Embossing Station
This station uses MGI award-winning inkjet technology
for producing Spot UV Coating. Any defined label area can
receive Spot UV Coating with or without raised 3D texture
effects. A simple grey level TIFF file designed by Prepress
controls the surface area and the thickness of the
varnish applied over the printed roll. This 100 % digital
process eliminates traditional plates, screens and dies.
Varnish thickness From 7² to 232² μm of varnish thickness
(from 2D flat coats to 3D raised effects).
Inline curing The unit is equipped with an UV dryer and a cooling
drum for optimum web temperature control. The curing
sequence also includes a special forward and backward roll
motion to dry each label and eliminate waste between runs.
UV Varnish Gloss varnish 99 GU
Hot Foiling Station The hot foiling station adds luxurious effects and brand
value to label and packaging products. Any defined label
area can receive digitally-controlled foil with or without
raised effects.
A simple grey level TIF file designed by Prepress
