Add Shine To Your Business

Save money and space while adding a host of value-added options to offer your customers.


Compact Size, Infinite Possibilities

In-house, full-production and prototype-finishing spot UV vanishing without the need for screens, plates or dies. The AccurioShine 3600 is fully equipped to allow you to provide a broader range of finishes at an impressively small footprint.


2D & 3D Gloss Effects

Using a single varnish formula, the AccurioShine 3600 digitally produces a variety of effects on a wide range of substrate stocks and media. Create both 2D and 3D finishes on paper, plastics, synthetics and cartons from 135 to 450 gsm. Add coatings to printed materials including offset and digital inks, lamination films and aqueous coatings.

Scan And Go

Use the workstation touchscreen to manage jobs using the intuitive software suite and Artificial Intelligence SmartScanner®. The intelligent and flexible automatic registration system allows you to easily create print files with perfect front-to-back registration on every sheet with minimal waste.

Add Impact to Every Print job

Shorter lead times and a simple job set-up make it simple to add highly profitable special effects to any print job. Optional additions including the Corona Treatment System (CTS) and Automatic PDF File Converter open the door to even more possibilities.


Gentle On The Environment

The AccurioShine 3600 features a closed/circuit system, leaves no ink or varnish residue, and is designed to prevent any cleaning or material waste between jobs, helping you to reduce paper, varnish and electrical consumption.

Easy Does It


No plates or screens. No cleaning between jobs. With the AccurioShine 3600, all you need is a digital mask to add varnish of varying thicknesses straight on top of toner or offset prints. The Artificial Intelligence SmartScanner® reduces operator setup time by more than 80% and keeps jobs running smoothly thanks to automated correction during runs.

Use the intuitive software suite and touchscreen interface to manage jobs and maintenance with ease. With the job cost calculator you can evaluate images, and forecast varnish consumption and costs before production starts. Edit job files directly at the workstation using the spot varnish editor, an easy-to-use graphical tool that enables operators to modify jobs without going back to prepress. Reduce preparation times down to just a few minutes and start jobs with confidence knowing that every sheet will look spectacular.

  • Take on more lucrative short and medium print runs.
  • Prepare print runs faster.
  • Eliminate plates, screens and dies.
  • Produce more complex jobs.
  • Apply on top of a wide range of substrates, toner and offset prints.
  • Job cost calculator.
  • Workstation spot varnish editor.

Artificial Intelligence Smartscanner® (AIS)

The industry leading AIS is changing the way digital printing and finishing works. The system uses artificial intelligence to create an automatic varnish registration over the pre-printed sheet, reducing setup time by more than 80% and minimising make-ready waste. Without operator intervention, the AIS makes corrections and adjustments for any defects generated in the original offset or digital print process, including sheet and image skew, shift, stretch or contraction.


Go the extra mile

Boost Your Output these optional Additions

Corona Treatment System

Increase the variety of media your AccurioShine 3600 can use and improve varnish adhesion. The Corona Treatment System (CTS) uses an electric charge to add micro-pitting to surfaces to prepare them for coating. Micro-pitting can increase wettability and adhesion, making ¡t possible to add varnish on top of a wider variety of substrates. Inserted after the paper feeder module, the CTS also contains an optional ozone cabinet, keeping your workplace clean by eliminating the need for ozone ducts. Depending on media and factors such as temperature and humidity, the CTS may not improve adhesion.

Variable Data Printing Barcode Scanner

Variable Data Printing (VDP) is ideal for printing product labels, tickets or packages with small differences such as product names or barcodes. With the barcode scanner, you can make job changes as simple as scanning a barcode. The AccurioShine 3600’s barcode scanner reads barcodes from a pre-printed sheet and instantly selects the corresponding TIFF file already stored on the workstation. Combine the VDP barcode scanner with the Automatic PDF File Converter for a truly seamless workflow which takes files from PDF to the output tray in minutes.

Automatic Pdf File Converter

A separate PC that works as part of your network to automatically translate PDF data into the TIFF files required by the AccurioShine 3600. Once integrated, the Automatic PDF File Converter works to quickly move jobs forward, reducing the manual steps in starting a new print job.

Artificial Intelligence Smartscanner® (Ais) Lighting
For Metallized Substrates

Add this option to enable the AccurioShine 3600 to register foil and metallic surfaces accurately. Although the AIS is equipped as standard with highly effective lighting for the vast majority of preprinted media, some substrates with metallic properties require specialised lighting to reduce glare.
