Mimaki Deutschland GmbH, a subsidiary of Mimaki Europe, demonstrated how sign makers, textile and digital print service providers could use Mimaki technology to produce an unrivalled range of eye-catching print applications and enter new profitable markets.
The JV300-160 Plus and the CG-160FXII Plus boast substantial productivity increases on previous models, in addition to delivering superior print quality at faster printing speeds. This is enabled by MAPS4, the latest version of the Mimaki Advanced Pass System which uses a unique algorithm to calculate the most effective way of jetting ink drops to avoid visible banding. Reliable productivity is assured with Mimaki’s pioneering NCU (Nozzle Check Unit) and NRS (Nozzle Recovery System), while a brand-new, advanced Take-Up device enables the handling of rolls up to 45kg – preventing media shifting and ensuring a smoother, more efficient production process.
A next-generation eco-solvent/sublimation printer, the JV300-160 Plus sets a new benchmark for professional wide format printers, sportswear and fashion manufacturers, as well as print shops. Offering the unrivalled versatility of multiple ink types and wider colour gamut (including, orange and light black), it delivers photo-quality prints at outstanding speeds (up to 105.9sqm per hour in super-draft mode).
The Mimaki CG-160FXll Plus is a brand-new multi-cutting plotter featuring a new ID Cut function which enables users to vastly improve work efficiency. When combined with the JV300-160 Plus, it allows continuous cutting operations to be performed automatically for small-quantity and multi-product orders of stickers and labels. The combined systems ensure that an entire operation can be completed in a single specification of data, so that operators can proceed with other jobs simultaneously.
The company’s flagship 3DUJ-553 3D printer prints in over 10 million colours. Building on Mimaki’s extensive colour expertise, as well as on the company’s core technologies in 2D printing, the 3DUJ-553 enables the production of true full colour, super fine details and smooth surfaces (with options to print in 19, 32 or 42µm layers), achieving consistent and repeatable results.
Based on Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) and using PLA material, the 3DFF-222 is designed to enable sign and display printers to produce jigs used in direct-to-object printing in-house. The 3D printer was combined with the Mimaki UJF-3042 MkII EX, an advanced small format direct-to-object UV LED flatbed printer, offering increased productivity, supreme print quality and ease-of-use for on-demand printing onto almost any material or substrate in A3 format, up to 153mm thick.
The Mimaki technology on show also included the following high-quality printing and cutting solutions for the sign making, digital printing and textile decoration markets:
Mimaki JFX200-2513 EX: a cutting-edge large flatbed UV inkjet printer, it incorporates Mimaki Core Technologies, including Nozzle Check Unit (NCU) and Nozzle Recovery System (NRS). The JFX200-2513 is equipped with Mimaki 2.5D Texture Maker, a proprietary layering technology that uniquely enables smooth embossed print with enticing-to-touch dimensional textured effects, opening new and valuable application opportunities for customers. Ideal for demanding production workflows, the JFX200-2513 prints on substrates up to 2500mm x 1300mm, in a wide variety of materials including white board, transparent/coloured board, wood, cardboard and metal.
Mimaki UCJV300-75: an award-winning UV integrated printer/cutter for sign and graphics, featuring a white ink capability. The UCJV300-75 enables four-layer printing, ideal for creating graphics for backlit applications, and five-layer printing for producing designs on both sides of the substrate simultaneously, perfect for transparent film.
Mimaki CJV150-107: an entry-level printer/cutter, offering high performance, versatility and richness in colour. The CJV150-107 featured the Sb54 sublimation ink but is also compatible with solvent ink, making it a cost-effective solution for sign makers, display graphics professionals and print shops.
The company also presented a range of creative promotional products, such as stickers, labels, key holders and other personalised items – further demonstrating how advanced digital printing enables value-adding, profit-driving personalisation capabilities. These solutions were exhibited at viscom 2020.
