Mimaki’s JFX200 streamlines production
Dudley-based DGS Supplies is a specialist in construction, PPE, signage, promotional goods and printing, so when the time came for the company to invest in new hardware in order to meet customer demand and streamline productions processes, the Mimaki JFX200-2513 LED UV flatbed printer proved to be the perfect choice.
Managing Director Franc Moscato explained: “We provide a large quantity of safety signage for the construction industry that we previously mounted onto rigid board, but since the arrival of the JFX200, we’ve been able to print direct to substrate, thus reducing both time and cost.
“Not only has the JFX200 enabled us to eliminate some production processes, its fast print speeds and capacity to print multiple items on one print run has significantly increased our productivity without us having to employ extra staff.”
The company’s Print Manager, Matt Shaw is also delighted with new flatbed, which was supplied and installed by specialist Mimaki reseller, PrintMAX. He confided: “The JFX is by far the best printer I’ve worked with during my 10 years in the print sector. It’s simple to use and offers great quality output and we also received excellent training from PrintMAX.”
The Mimaki JFX200 combines superfast speeds and excellent print quality direct to rigid objects. Its 8’x4’ bed size is ideal for conventional board printing, but it can be used to produce a wide array of lucrative applications, enabling users to open up new revenue streams, as illustrated by DGS Supplies, which is now able to offer fantastic quality and fast turnarounds to its traditional client base, but is also exploring the potential offered by the bespoke interior décor and personalisation markets.
