Mimaki Jv400 130lx

Hybrid says it will be featuring three 'huge product launches' on stand D10 at Sign & Digital UK 2012, including the 'much anticipated' Mimaki JV400 latex inkjet printers. With machines available to view on Hybrid's resellers' stands too, the exclusive UK and Irish distributor for Mimaki will have two latex printers on its stand - with one printing high speed four colour output and the second utilising Mimaki's unique white latex ink. Visitors to the stand will be able to see the Mimaki JV400-160LX printers.

Hybrid is also hosting the UK & Irish launch of two further Mimaki printers - the 1.9m wide production dye sub TS34-1800A and the UJF-3042HG. The addition of the 'HG' variant to this range gives users a machine capable of printing to almost any rigid substrate or object with vibrant process colour, opaque white ink and even a varnish. The UJF-3042HG accepts objects up to 150mm thick.

In addition to the product launches, Hybrid is introducing the Mimaki Learning Zone. Hybrid's Technical Services Manager, Andy Lewis says; "If you're looking to understand how investing in wide format hardware can help your business, or if you've got any questions on getting the most out of your Mimaki, then come and talk to the experts - we're here to help!"

On the middle day of the show, Hybrid welcomes two legends of 1980's football - Scottish internationals and ex Manchester United players, Arthur Albiston and Lou Macari. Visitors to the stand can reminisce on a time that Sign & Digital UK was in its infancy, have their photo taken with the stars, and play Spot the Ball for a chance to win a signed shirt and take home an autographed memento of their visit to the show, printed on a Mimaki.

Hybrid will also show Mimaki's printing and cutting solutions for the outdoor, textile and industrial markets with machines from 60cm up to 3.2m.
