January 6, 2023  By PrintAction Staff

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) unveils a new digital embellishment press, the Jetvarnish 3D 52L. Its B2 format targets commercial and package printers. As the successor model to the Jetvarnish 3D, this new digital embellishment press provides sensory print applications.

The Jetvarnish 3D 52L will allow printers, finishers and converters to have an in-house full production and prototyping print embellishment system without screens, dies or plates. The all-purpose patented varnish formula allows both flat 2D spot UV highlighting and sculptured 3D raised special effects on a wide range of substrate stocks and up to 600 gsm, from offset and digital inks to lamination films and aqueous coatings.

The Jetvarnish 3D 52L provides printers with the ability to generate more high-impact printed communications and decorative embellishments on all commercial and in-plant applications including booklets, brochures, business cards, mail pieces, book covers, sheet-fed labels, small folding cartons, retail display signs and posters. Sheet sizes range up to 22.4×47 in. and the coating thickness can vary from a traditional flat spot UV coating of 7 μm up to 232 μm for 3D raised texture effects and a tactile finish, all in a single pass.


“Decorative embellishment continues to be a huge growth area for our industry, with tremendous opportunities for commercial printers to differentiate themselves and yield a high profit for the service,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice-president, product management and planning. “Our full line of digital embellishment devices delivers dynamic performance for the most demanding applications, adding extra value and sensory dimensional textures to printed output for finished products that are simply remarkable.”
