Digital Spot UV and Foil System
C&T is now up and running with our new Jet Varnish 3DS with variable IFOIL unit. This is a 100% digital Inkjet Spot UV Coater that can create a raised 2D or 3D effect. This machine is perfect for short run, multiple up jobs ON COATED STOCK where multiple dies would not be cost effective. **Please note that the Manufacturer recommends a minimum of 24 hours for complete curing of the UV varnish. The IFOIL unit applies foil which adheres to the UV varnish without the need for expensive dies.
While we do not expect these applications to replace the traditional hot foil stamping and embossing process, it does offer additional options to our Customers. The 3D effect definitely makes images and text stand out to the recipient. The possibilities are endless!
Capabilities of the new machine include:
- Ability to run foil only, UV only, or both UV and foil
- Ability to apply multiple levels of UV from 25 microns to 200 microns
- Ability to apply patterns to foil and UV coating
- Ability to produce prototypes/samples quickly displaying different options available
The simple addition of slightly raised UV to colored paper, or printed text, can generate a clear foiled effect which really make it stand out.
