Mimaki will be exhibiting at PSI in Düsseldorf, the leading European promotional products trade show. The show kicks off 2014 for the promotional products industry, running from 8th through 10th January, 2014. Mimaki will be offering attendees a hands-on opportunity to produce their own work on Mimaki printers during the event. Mimaki will be located in a 107 square metre booth in hall 12 stand B13 (Technology Forum) of the PSI Show.

Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA, Mimaki Europe B.V said, ‘Attendees at PSI will have the opportunity to see how their businesses can be augmented by on-demand printing of promotional products. We invite them to bring their own images for production on the trade show floor. We will also be conducting live demos showing how to print on canvas. We believe we are on the start of an analogue-to-digital transformation of the promotional products industry, and attendees at the show will be able to experience this first-hand.’

Mimaki will be featuring its latest technology for the promotional products industry at the show, including:
• UJF-3042 and UJF-6042. The UJF family of flatbed printers achieves a more precise and vivid image quality that is normally only found in more costly printers. Reaching 1800×1800 dpi resolution and a variable dot with a minimum size of 4 picolitres, it guarantees smoother gradations. Quality can also be enhanced with the application of glossy or matte finish clear ink, and multi-layered print can be achieved by overprinting an area several times. The UJF-3042 desktop flatbed printer has a print area of 300x420mm, while the larger UFJ-6042 handles sizes up to A2. Both offer environmentally friendly LED curing, 6-colour process colour, multiple ink options, and the ability to print on substrates up to 150mm thick.

• JV33 Series. This affordable, high performance, roll-to-roll multifunction inkjet printer features high quality printing at up to 1,440 dpi with 4 or 6-colour printing. It supports multiple ink types, including two solvent inks with high scratch resistance, high density, wide colour gamut and a high safety factor. Users may also choose to use aqueous pigment ink or dye sublimation ink at the time of installation. With a maximum print width of 1610mm, the JV33 series prints up to 17.5 square meters per hour and offers stable feeding of heavy media up to 100kg.

‘The promotional products business is an exciting place to be as companies take advantage of new technologies to be even more creative with their offerings,’ Horsten added. ‘We expect to wow attendees with our on-demand capabilities and have a great deal of fun at the same time.’
