Mimaki heads to InPrint

 Mimaki will be exhibiting at InPrint 2017, the exhibition for Industrial Print Technology. The show takes place from 14th to 16th November 2017, in Hall A6 of the Munich Trade Fair Centre, where Mimaki will be located on stand 214.

Visitors to the Mimaki stand will be able to see a wide range of industrial-class printing and cutting solutions and, in addition, the company will also be showing 3D samples that show the potential of the company’s full-colour 3D printer for rapid prototyping, mould manufacturing, modelling and more. Applications on display will include safety and warning labels and name and number plates to membrane switches, packaging samples and promotional items.

Mimaki will be presenting a number of game-changing technologies in the industrial printing market including the

UJF Series of high-precision UV-curable flatbed printers, which can lay down a base coat of inkjet primer, a base print of white ink, full-colour print and a surface coating of clear ink in a single operation.  As well as their ability to print on to diverse substrates, such as plastics, wood, metal and glass, these printers are also equipped with innovative Mimaki core technologies, such as 360-degree direct printing on bottles.

Also on display will be the CFL-605RT flatbed cutting plotter, which offers both creasing and cutting capabilities. It is designed with Mimaki’s well-established technology to support immediate finishing of packaging and prototypes with multiple functions and is the ideal companion to the UJF Series of flatbed printers for a total production solution.

It will be joined by the recently launched UCJV300-160 integrated UV LED printer/cutter, equipped with features such as four-layer lightbox printing, instantly dry ink, low running costs and the ability to print to a wide range of materials. This new machine ensures vibrant, eye-catching results suitable for use with safety warning or instruction labels.

Samples produced by the Mimaki 3DUJ-553, the world’s first full-colour 3D printer, which is capable of printing up to 10 million different colours, will also be available for inspection. It offers white ink and a clear ink overcoat, which adds vibrancy to the printed product and can be combined with coloured ink to create half colour transparent models.

In addition, visitors will be able to see a vacuum forming demonstration using Mimaki’s LUS-350 flexible ink in combination with a vacuum forming machine from Formech. The LUS-350 ink stretches up to 350 percent when heated to between 120⁰C and 200⁰C. After cooling to room temperature, the ink’s rigidity is restored while securely adhering to the moulded product without cracking or peeling.

Other stand attractions will include the TS300P-1800 dye sublimation printer, which delivers high speed, quality and throughput for a wide range of textile and fashion uses. It can print on very lightweight transfer paper for lower running costs and features a powerful vacuum feed platen that reduces cockling.

Mimaki is exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland by Hybrid Services, which will provide further information on the above and the rest of Mimaki’s range of printers and cutters.
