Healeys takes new Konica Minolta AccurioShine 3600 with iFoil One
Ipswich based Healeys Printers has taken delivery of a new AccurioShine 3600 inkjet spot UV coater with iFoil One in line hot foil stamping module. The newly installed press provides the company with in-house spot UV varnishing, from prototyping to full production, without the need for screens, plates or dies, enabling it to enhance its embellishment offering.
Healeys can now utilise spot UV and digital foil with the flexibility of short run and digital work, as managing director Philip Dodd commented, ‘We had looked at the options for embellishment pre Covid, but we felt the time was now right to enhance our creative options, to expand our customer offering, and to meet market demands. The AccurioShine 3600 enables us to differentiate our offering whilst enjoying the considerable benefits of flexibility that a digital solution brings.’
The fully digital AccurioShine 3600 utilises groundbreaking technology for adding 2D and 3D multiple coating and dimensional texture effects in a single pass. With a maximum supported paper size of B3+ (364 x 750 mm), the AccurioShine 3600 is perfect for enhancing business/name cards, greeting cards, photobook covers, and even packaging on-demand, creating an impactful print experience.
The AccurioShine 3600 features artificial intelligence registration technology and an eco friendly LED curing system, all delivered in a compact size. When combined with the iFoil One in line hot foil stamping module, the AccurioShine 3600 provides a range of high impact finishing effects including personalised embossed foil and also supports variable data printing, adding more impact to tickets, personalised packages and labels, invitations, one to one marketing, and more.
