Mimaki's UJF-6042 received 2014’s “Most Pioneering Product” award at the Trophex exhibition in Birmingham. With its smaller sibling - the A3 format UJF-3042HG - winning the 2013 award, the small format Mimaki flatbed range is firmly established in the promotional products and awards sector as the strongest and most innovative choice.
The UJF-6042 adds increased bed size to the smaller 3042 unit – with an A2 (610 x 420) format vacuum table and 150mm head height, allowing a myriad of substrates to be printed on to. One such application demonstrated at the show was the production of promotional items, such as pens and iPhone covers, as well as acrylic photo blocks and awards. Forming part of I-Sub Digital’s Digi-Foil system - where traditional foil techniques can be replicated within a digital workflow - the Mimaki delivered spectacular foil effects onto trophies and plaques that clearly impressed visitors to the event.
Mike Lewis from Hybrid Services Ltd - Mimaki's exclusive UK & Ireland distributor - commented, “To receive such an important award for the second year running is a great accolade. The Mimaki UJF range is the world’s most popular UV flatbed printer for good reason – it allows print companies to be innovative in their product offering as well as creating strong revenue streams for them; a vital area for customer retention as our economy continues to recover.”
The Mimaki UJF range starts from £16,995 and features white ink, unique digitally printable primer and a clear varnish, alongside vibrant process colours. With the UJF-6042 capable of achieving up to 1800dpi photo quality output, the printers deliver unsurpassed quality and productivity across a broad variety of markets.
