Futura offers a complete range of printing services for all type of projects – from a simple black and white document to a complex multi-colour brochure using variable data printing.

The company, which was struggling to deliver variable data finishing with varnish and foil, did a comprehensive market research, testing and analysis to find a solution to the problem. Shivkumar, director at Futura said, “We were happy with the superb quality and precise accuracy of the digital varnish application that JetVarnish 3DS delivered. It was much superior than the traditional methods.”

The finishing capabilities of the JetVarnish 3DS include spot UV, Digital Emboss, and hot foil stamping on up to 3,000 sheets per hour in 30-micron coating thickness. “These capabilities will help our end customers’ product to stand out from the crowd with striking 3D raised effects.

The JetVarnish is equipped with AIS SmartScanner, an artificial intelligence registration technology. “It is the only print registration solution in the world that individually makes adjustments and corrections for each printed sheet. It requires no registration marks and treats each sheet like a separate, unique job. The cost-savings are dramatic. It significantly reduces time-consuming, expensive setup processes and job monitoring work tasks. Increased operational productivity and improved quality on every piece produced are the result of MGI’s major innovation in print registration technology,” said Kuldeep Malhotra, sales head, Konica Minolta India.

Malhotra added, “JetVarnish 3DS would provide additional value to Futura’s customers.”

The KM Infinite Web 2 Print services, Shivkumar said, will help it to be available to its customers 24x7. “E-commerce in India is growing and we intend to leverage the platform for our business growth and ease of job submission for our customers.”
