Mimaki to show print & cut solutions at Labelexpo 2017
Mimaki will be taking a variety of innovative digital print-and-cut solutions for short-run and customised labels and packaging to Labelexpo Europe 2017, which will take place in Brussels on 25th– 28th September and use the theme of “Gain an Unfair Advantage”.
At the exhibition, Mimaki will be using its UJF-7151plus to demonstrate direct printing on to rigid substrates to create high-quality nameplates suitable for industrial marking or placarding. Additionally, a small laser-cutting device will be used in combination with the printer to cut rigid labels to finished product.
The UJF-7151plus, a compact UV LED direct- to-object printer, delivers a powerful and reliable digital alternative to traditional screenprint operations. With a print resolution of up to 1200dpi, it features a 710 x 510mm printable area using process, white and clear inks, plus primer.
Mimaki will also be showing print-and-cut of high quality specialised labels using silver ink. The CJV150 Series integrated printer/cutter solutions provide high performance, creativity and versatility with vibrant ink types, including silver, orange and light black, in a cost-effective solution for label printing. At a resolution of up to 1440dpi and speeds of up to 56.2m2, this solvent ink printer is a handy addition to any label converting operation.
Digital direct-to-corrugated printing is another hot topic Mimaki will address at the show, where it will be using the combination of the Mimaki UJF-6042MkII printer and the CFL-605RT cutting table, to demonstrate how quickly and affordably corrugated items, including everything from boxes to in-store displays, can be created.
The UJF-6042MkII flatbed LED UV printer, with a maximum print area of 610 x 420mm, brings increased productivity and ease of use to on-demand, direct-to-corrugated printing. It is also ideal for other labels and packaging applications, as well as for the creation of signs, displays and other graphically rich applications, including substrates up to 153mm thick. It features a choice of inks, including LH-100 (a hard UV curable ink with high scratch and chemical resistance and brilliant colour reproduction) or LUS-120 (suitable for printing on soft materials). Each is available in nine colours, including white, clear and primer.
Mimaki will also take the opportunity to present its popular Kebab option, an affordable direct-to-object 360º printing solution. At the exhibition, the Kebab option will be shown printing on glass and plastic bottles with the Mimaki UJF-3042MkII flatbed LED UV printer.
Commenting on the company’s plans for the show, Ronald Van den Broek said: “We are truly looking forward to welcoming visitors and helping them to ‘gain an unfair advantage’ in the highly competitive and rapidly evolving labels and packaging market. We have lots of innovative ideas to share with them, and we believe these discussions will spark even more creative approaches they can take back to their businesses for continued growth, profitability and competitive advantage.”
Mimaki will be showing on Stand 8A08 at Labelexpo Europe 2017.
