Mimaki scoops second award
The Mimaki UJF-6042 received 2014’s ‘Most Pioneering Product’ award at the recent Trophex exhibition held at Birmingham’s NEC during January, a year after its smaller sibling, the A3 format UJF-3042HG won the 2013 award, thus further underlining the efficacy of Mimaki’s small format flatbed range in the promotional products and awards sector.
The UJF-6042 adds increased bed size to the smaller 3042 unit, offering an A2 (610 x 420) format vacuum table and 150mm head height, which facilitates its use with a wide selection of substrates. One such application, which was demonstrated at Trophex, was the decoration of various promotional items, such as pens and iPhone covers, as well as acrylic photo blocks and awards. Forming part of I-Sub Digital’s Digi-Foil system, where traditional foil techniques can be replicated within a digital workflow, the Mimaki delivered spectacular foil effects onto trophies and plaques, which clearly impressed visitors.
The affordable Mimaki UJF range, which is distributed exclusively in the UK and Ireland by Hybrid Services, is priced from just £16,995 and uses white ink, a unique digitally printable primer and a clear varnish, together with vibrant process colours. With the UJF-6042 capable of achieving up to 1800dpi photo quality output, the printers combine excellent quality and productivity across a broad variety of markets.
