Flat or 3D Spot Coating, you have the choice!

No need to choose between traditional flat spot coating OR 3D raised effects! With the JETvarnish 3D, you have the freedom to feature both effects on the same sheet or separately (from 3 to 100µ*).

Expand your business and offer your customers a wider range of finishing services to help them differentiate their brands.

*200µ with the Twin option

Amazing 3D raised effects

Produce spot UV coating jobs with 3D raised effects that bring your prints to life. Beautiful tactile effects enhance projects and create a new experience for the senses.

Determine your own selling price for a job than nobody can match, while your customers receive stunning prints that take their projects to a new level.

Increased productivity - up to 3,000 B2 sheets/hour

Break productivity records to gain a larger customer base with more profitable jobs. With a throughput up to 3,000 B2 sheet per hour, you can either multiply short runs (1-50 sheets) or produce medium and long runs - more than 20,000 sheets per day.

100% coverage of a B2 sheet

As a commercial printer or finisher, you need to ensure a full B2 coverage (B2=500x707mm) for your Spot UV jobs.

The JETvarnish 3D, as perfect complement to B2 offset presses, is able to exceed this area with a printable of 515x735mm.

Fine details or high coverage areas are no problem!

Whether you are spot UV coating ultra-fine details or large flat areas, the JETvarnish 3D is designed for all kinds of spot UV coating jobs. Don't limit yourself to either flat or 3D - your customers deserve the choice!

Anticipate your printing costs prior to production

The better you can anticipate your production costs, the more accurate your quote and your margins will be.

JETvarnish 3D has an embedded predictive cost calculator prior to production. You just need to upload the spot coating file and it will immediately display the volume of coating consumed - for 1 or for 1,000+ sheets

Perfect register every time!

The JETvarnish 3D comes equipped with ARC registration technology, an onboard
camera combined with a proprietary tracking system designed to calibrate (on-the-fly) coating registration from sheet to sheet. The camera is capable of reading any printed marks and automatically corrects for changes in X and Y portions of each sheet. The ARC system ensures accurate spot UV coating, even on jobs with inconsistent print registration,
a traditional obstacle for those wishing to spot UV coat jobs printed on some digital presses.

The 2nd camera allows to detect and adjust on-the-fly, the possible skew generated by the 4-Color printing process

No Plates or Screens

The 100% digital JETvarnish 3D eliminates the need for expensive plates, screens or setups. By removing these elements associated with traditional spot UV coating, the JETvarnish 3D enables dramatically quicker and less expensive setup for your jobs - which translates into higher profitability.

A new 3D high gloss coating formula at 99% G.U.

Produce high gloss spot UV jobs that no other traditional analog technology can match. The JETvarnish 3D features a gloss level of 99% (G.U.)

Extended paper formats up to 52x105 cm

Some applications may require longer paper format than B2 - for example, book covers integrating multiple flaps. To accommodate this key need, the JETvarnish 3D is the solution to cover sheets up to 52x105 cm / 20 x 42" long. It is another unique feature.

Internet cannot compete

Thanks to the power of the printed document on paper, adding a 3D spot UV coating is bringing an unbeatable visual impact and tactile feeling that you cannot have on the Internet
