Hybrid to launch new super-wide Mimaki printer

Hybrid Services, Mimaki’s exclusive UK an Ireland distributor, will debut the brand new Mimaki SWJ-320EA super-wide eco-solvent printer at The Print Show, which takes place on 17th -19th September at Birmingham’s NEC.

The machine, which was launched globally at FESPA Africa 2019, addresses the demands of the dynamic and price-sensitive super-wide format printing market, being a highly productive 3.2m wide printer that combines top print quality, fast printing speed and reliability at an accessible price.

Brett Newman, Hybrid’s Chief Operations Manager, said: “The arrival of the Mimaki SWJ-320EA in time for The Print Show presents visitors with a great opportunity to be amongst the first UK companies to see this printer, which we anticipate will be a real game-changer for those companies specialising in the production of both indoor and outdoor large format printing. “

Following successful sales progression in price-sensitive markets, such as Turkey, Russia and the Middle East, the SWJ-320EA is now available in the entire EMEA region.

Building on the legacy of Mimaki innovation, the SWJ-320EA super-wide solvent printer includes Mimaki core technologies, including the MAPS4 (Mimaki Advanced Pass System) that helps to prevent banding during the printing process and NRS (Nozzle Recovery System), which facilitates the replacement of blocked nozzles on the fly. With every pass, MAPS4 uses a unique algorithm that calculates the most effective way to jet the ink drops to avoid visible banding, something that constantly changes, depending on ink colour, coverage and printing speed. This feature, alongside NRS, enhances the printer’s performance and boosts productivity and print quality for the user. For further production benefits, the SWJ-320EA is equipped with four advanced high-speed printheads arranged in a staggered array ensuring resolutions of up to 1,200dpi and print speeds at up to 137m²/h.

In addition, the SWJ-320EA is equipped with an extremely stable media feeding system and a newly designed tension bar, features that prevent the media from cockling and ensure high grip for extremely accurate printing and resulting in consistent premium print quality, even for larger prints. For those requiring higher volumes, a twin-roll printing function is available as an optional feature, enabling the printer to handle up to two rolls (with a maximum width of 1,524mm each) and resulting in double-volume production for smaller rolls per day.

Designed to enable users to diversify their businesses in a profitable way, the Mimaki SWJ-320EA is ideal for use in the production of a wide variety of large format indoor and outdoor applications, including POS materials, banners and billboards, displays, transport and floor images. Diversification is also driven by a wide and varied range of compatible substrates, such as self-adhesive PVC film, photo paper, billboard paper, blue-back, backlit film, banner materials and tarpaulin, to name but a few.

The SWJ-320EA uses Mimaki CS100 eco-solvent based inks, which are available in a CMYK configuration and with a capacity of three-litres per colour and have been developed to ensure lower consumption and increased weather and scratch resistance.

Hybrid will be showing at The Print Show on Stand E10 in Hall 9 at the NEC, Birmingham on 17th –19th September 2019.
