Nippon Color is showcasing the latest spot UV AccurioShine 3600, a 14-inch digital offline embellishment solution at PrintPack India Hall 9D Stand H21. This solution aligns with the printing and packaging industry trends that require value-addition at an affordable cost.
The AccurioShine 3600’s artificial intelligence and smartscanner (AIS) makes it superior to similar machines from competitors according to Nippon Color. It creates various glossy effects on a variety of substrates, stocks, and media with a single varnish mix. Plastics, synthetics, and cartons weighing between 135 and 450 gsm are embellished easily with 2D and 3D gloss finishes on paper. Offset and digital inks, lamination films, and aqueous coatings can all be used to coat printed items. The solutions seems to be extremely useful for a wide variety of applications from commercial print to publishing, stickers, packaging, and others.
“We have collaborated with Konica Minolta to provide industrial printing solutions, such as the AccurioShine series for spot UV and foiling and the AccurioJet KM-1e, a B2+ sheetfed UV inkjet system that gives print professionals endless options. JD Graphics in Lower Parel, Mumbai, already has a JetVarnish 3D One and AccurioShine 101 installed by Nippon Color,” said Akshat Pardiwala, chief operating officer at Nippon Color.
The AIS is swiftly impacting the industry in terms of digital printing and finishing. Artificial intelligence is used by the technology to establish an automated varnish registration over the preprinted sheet, cutting setup time by more than 80% and eliminating make-ready waste. Any errors caused in the original offset or digital print processes, such as sheet and image skew, shift, stretch, or contraction, are corrected and adjusted by the AIS without human intervention.
“For our newest product, we’re getting a lot of enquiries. Customers understand the value of digital decoration and how it can help them distinguish their prints from a simple CMYK print to spectacular raised UV print with foiling,” concludes Pardiwala.
