Graphix Supply World will launch Mimaki’s new 2012 digital print solutions at the Sign Africa RoadShow in Cape Town at the CTICC from 20-21 June, including the latest solvent, UV and Latex technology.

Mimaki SWJ-320 3.2m Wide Solvent Printer
GSW plan to launch the revolutionary high speed SWJ-320 S4 3.2m wide solvent at the RoadShow. In April this year, Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd., the leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers, introduced two inkjet printer models ‘SWJ-320 S2’ and ‘SWJ-320 S4’ which are targeted at signage markets in emerging continents, namely China, Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America. In response to the rising demand from emerging markets, the new ‘SWJ-320 S2/S4’ has been developed to produce high print quality in a grand-format segment, together with high speeds with an affordable price tag.

The ‘SWJ-320 S4’ high-speed model has four print heads, capable of reaching speeds up to 84.6sqm/h in draft mode. The 7pl minimum variable-size ink dots printing ensures beautiful print results without a grainy appearance. The ‘SWJ-320 S2/S4’ meets the increasing client demands for higher print quality at an affordable price.

One of the reasons many people select Mimaki products is because they have a reputation of being easy to use, with low maintenance cost. With functionalities such as built-in nozzle recovery to minimize downtime and fast drying 2L CS100 solvent ink, the SWJ-320 is a cost-effective, production 3.2m wide printer.

The newly developed CS1000 ink has excellent properties, producing the high Mimaki standards for colour accuracy, image durability and UV resistance found in conventional Mimaki solvent inks. The CS1000 ink viscosity has been developed to clog heads less often than other solvent inks, and drying time is minimised with three heaters and a drying fan.

Mimaki JV400-LX Latex Printer Series
To be shown for the first time in Cape Town, the award-winning, eagerly anticipated Latex printer from Mimaki was awarded a prestigious EDPA award for the ‘Best Environmental Printing Solution’ and has affirmed Mimaki’s new JV400-LX latex printer is the best Latex printing solution on the market.

The new JV400 LX printer and LX-100 latex ink developed by Mimaki, has numerous advantages over the competition. The groundbreaking JV400-130/160LX allows end-users more choice, for less money. Better quality, better value, better options, better savings and better environmentally friendly technology, resulting in lower production costs, greater efficiency and greater opportunity for profit.

First JV400-LX in Cape Town Sold To ZaPOP
The first JV400-160LX Latex printer has been sold to ZaPOP – expert providers of innovative in-store display solutions. As one of the leading large-format digital printers in South Africa, ZaPOP provides innovative and creative print solutions with quick turnaround times and unmatched quality and service. To operate at this level, ZaPOP put their trust in leading technology from Graphix Supply World. With five Mimaki JV5-160 high speed solvent printers amongst other print, cut and finishing equipment supplied by GSW, ZaPOP are looking forward to adding the new JV400-160 Latex printer to their workforce. The JV400-LX will be used predominantly for in-store communication and branding display production, but thanks to the wide variety of media this machine is able to print onto, it’s a flexible, eco-friendly and cost-effective decision.

Mimaki UJF-3042HG
Mimaki’s new UJF-3042HG UV LED Inkjet A3 desktop printer will be shown in Cape Town for the first time. The Mimaki UJF-3042HG upgraded model features many new functionalities, which improve performance and cost-effectiveness of this affordable and innovative UV solution.
