MGI Digital Graphic Technology installed the new iFOIL hot-foil-stamping system into its Florida headquarters for demonstration purposes with North American printers.

iFOIL operates inline with MGI’s JETvarnish 3D UV spot coater to produce on-demand – and personalized – embossing, debossing and hot foil work. MGI points to applications like magazine covers, books, brochures, labels, invitations and packaging.

In addition to foil on foil work, iFOIL can apply up to three foils in one pass. It runs up to 1,700 B2 size sheets per hour, which equates to 25 metres per minute.

Using market standard foil rolls, the inline configuration handles sizes ranging from A4 format (21 x 30 cm) to 52 x 105cm and on paper substrates ranging from 150 to 700 microns. User can also produce hot stamping with iFOIL with output from offset and toner presses, including MGI’s Meteor series.
