Mimaki set to flex its muscles at FESPA 2019
Mimaki Europe will host visitors to FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 on its largest ever FESPA stand, which reflects its broad portfolio offering, international growth, market-leading position and commitment to customer success as well as providing a platform to launch new feature-rich products to drive customer differentiation and profitability.
The Mimaki stand (Stand A30, Hall B6) will encompass four key business areas: Sign Graphics, Industrial Products, Textiles and 3D. In a celebration of application diversity, Mimaki will demonstrate how customers can leverage its cutting-edge inkjet technology to deliver increased revenue and address new markets with new application opportunities.
The company will showcase its flagship UV LED and eco-solvent roll-to-roll printing systems, providing versatile, reliable and high-quality print and cut capabilities for sign graphics applications. Ranging from entry-level to high-productivity printers, these solutions are designed to enable sign and print companies to ‘print and profit’ using Mimaki technology.
Equipment on display will include the Mimaki UCJV300-75, an award-winning UV integrated printer/cutter, featuring a white ink capability. Uniquely enabling four layer printing, this system is ideal for creating transformative graphics for backlit applications. Also exclusive to Mimaki, five-layer printing allows different designs to be printed on both sides of a substrate simultaneously, perfect for transparent film applications. The smallest model of Mimaki’s versatile UCJV300 series, it also features Greenguard Gold certified LUS-170 inks.
A further attraction will be the CJV150-160, an entry-level eco-solvent integrated printer/cutter, offering high performance, versatility and richness in colour. Equipped with vibrant ink types including silver, orange and light black, it delivers a cost-effective solution for signmakers, display graphics professionals and print shops.
It will be complemented with the Mimaki JV300-160, a next-generation eco-solvent/sublimation printer, the JV300-160, which sets a new benchmark for professional wide format printers. Offering the unrivalled versatility of multiple ink types (namely, orange and light black), it delivers photo-quality prints at outstanding speeds (up to 105.9sq m per hour in super-draft mode), making it the ideal solution for sign and graphics professionals, sportswear and fashion manufacturers, as well as print shops.
The Mimaki UJV55-320 is a 3.2m-wide LED UV inkjet printer that uniquely combines high quality, super wide output and high-volume production (up to 110sq m per hour). White ink, transparent media capability, as well as twin-roll simultaneous printing, are among the features that make it ideal for producing banners, retail, exhibition and window graphics and similar applications.
For the industrial market, Mimaki will showcase three of its flatbed direct-to-object LED UV digital printers from the UJF Series: the Mimaki UJF-7151plus, the Mimaki UJF-3042 MkII and the Mimaki UJF-6042 MkII.
Offering print sizes from 710mm x 510mm to A2 and A3, and substrates up to 153mm thick, Mimaki’s UJF portfolio is designed specifically for the promotional products market. Visitors will be inspired by a wide range of creative promotional products crafted in various materials, which illustrate how advanced digital printing facilitates value-adding and profit-driving personalisation and versioning capabilities.
Central to Mimaki’s textile showcase at FESPA is the company’s latest dye sublimation printer: the Mimaki TS55-1800. Offering continuous operation and an unprecedented price/quality ratio, this business-enhancing printer addresses the entry and mid-level markets and is designed for users that demand high productivity and high-quality print with vibrant colours and vivid imagery. Equipped with Mimaki’s core technologies, it prints with the new Sb610 inks that hold the coveted ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® certification, meeting specific sustainability requirements. The TS55-1800 is suitable for the production of interior fabrics, sports and fashion apparel, flags and tapestries.
A Gold Sponsor of FESPA Global Print Expo, Mimaki will also be a key participant in FESPA’s special textile feature ‘Print Make Wear’.
Mimaki plans to ‘shape the future in colour’ with its advanced colour additive manufacturing technology. The Mimaki 3DUJ-553 is recognised as the first ever polymer 3D printing system enabling more than 10 million different colours. Using CMYK with white and clear inks, it produces photo-realistic products, with rich colour expression including spot colour, shades and gradients, as well as special effects, such as full transparency and semi-transparent colour.
Visitors to the Mimaki stand will see the 3DUJ-553 3D printer running live and delivering objects with super fine details and smooth surfaces. Mimaki’s 3D printer is ideal for such applications as scaled models, mock-ups and prototyping through to 3D art, figurines, as well as medical and educational tools and equipment.
