Mimaki USA (Booth 3423) understands that its business centers on its ability to observe and listen to the changing marketplace and then to connect—through the large-format and digital printing industry—to deliver what its customers want from the printers and cutters it makes. This keeps the company focused on solutions to the demands customers are expecting.
Though known for its large-format digital printers, at GRAPH EXPO Mimaki will be demonstrating a variety of innovative and cost-effective solutions geared towards small- to medium-sized print shops that are looking to expand their customer base with additional service offerings.
Roll inkjet options
On display will be Mimaki’s CJV30 Series of roll media digital printers that feature an integrated print/cut system. This 2-in-1 inkjet printer automatically prints and then contour cuts custom shapes without any in between steps. It’s fully loaded with high-performance features and bundled software for producing vibrant color and flawless image quality.
Of special interest will be demonstrations of the use of ES3 metallic silver ink, which, in combination with standard CMYK color, creates metallic effects. The CJV30 printers are ideal for POP displays, window clings, vehicle wraps, as well as labels, decals, and stickers. The CJV30 Series includes four printer sizes—24", 40", 54", and 64" media widths.
Mimaki will also be demonstrating its tabletop-sized UJF-3042. The UJF-3042 is a compact UV LED flatbed that is ideal for short-run jobs, one-offs, and direct printing to objects where highly detailed and precise imaging is essential. It uses eco-friendly low-VOC UV inks and is compatible with white and clear inks for printing on transparent, heat-sensitive and non-coated materials up to 2" thick. The UJF-3042 is designed for printing on promotional items, trophies and plaques, ID cards, or prototypes.
Model UJF-3042FX will be introduced at GRAPH EXPO. It allows the use of flexible ink for added applications, including garment transfers.
Mimaki also manufacturers a full line of roll and flatbed cutter plotters. At GRAPH EXPO the company is presenting its smaller sized CF2 Series of flatbed cutting plotters—CF2-1218 (8x6') and CF2-0912 (6x5'). The vacuum-tabled CF2 offers accurate cutting and creasing where roll-fed cutting plotters are not suitable. It is equipped with two types of cutting heads that can be fitted with different blades for cutting a variety of media up to 1" thick. The cutters can both die cut and half cut and work well with most flatbed printers, especially Mimaki’s JFX-1615plus, and JFX-1631plus UV LED flatbeds.
At GRAPH EXPO, seeing is believing. Mimaki USA welcomes attendees to its booth, to experience hands-on demonstrations of these printers and cutters. Then, Mimaki is telling attendees, get ready to deliver success.
