Mimaki is continuing its pan-European showcase: Let’s Create… Together. The company will be bringing its print production creativity to Viscom Frankfurt 2014 (November 5th to 7th, 2014) as well as holding a variety of 'My Mimaki Days' events throughout Germany in October and November.
In Hall 3 on stand C31/D31, Mimaki’s newly-launched solutions - developed in response to emerging market needs - will highlight how adopting new technology can benefit businesses by supporting existing market segments and addressing new possibilities.
“The print production environment has become so diverse that it is understandable how companies can be tempted to stand on the side-lines to watch how opportunities develop, unsure of how or when they can or should transform their own fortunes,” comments Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA, Mimaki Europe B.V. “However, you can’t stand on the side-lines for too long without falling behind the competition and disappointing customers. That is why our portfolio of solutions is constantly evolving to address new and developing market opportunities. At the same time, we provide systems that help operations cost-effectively harness any commercial advantage that is possible, whether they are small or large, and no matter what their segment.”
The Viscom revelation
The new Mimaki CJV300-130/160 inkjet printer/cutter was created to do just that. Premiered in Europe at Viscom Paris 2014, it brings simultaneous print/cut operations to this class of printer for the first time, at a print speed of up to 105.9 square meters per hour. Its two newly-developed staggered print heads deliver a wider print swath and ink drops ranging from 4pl to 35pl for beautiful, high-resolution printing. Continuous register mark detection enables the continuous cutting of an entire roll of media while simultaneously taking up unrolled media. Zero margin register marks reduce media consumption by eliminating the margins between register marks, for less waste of often-costly media.
Also new to Mimaki’s technologically responsive and quickly expanding family of solutions - and available in spring 2015 - is the highly functional, entry-level Mimaki CJV150 inkjet printer/cutter. It operates at up to 56.2 square metres per hour. Also on show will be the Mimaki JV150 inkjet printer, featuring solvent and water-based sublimation inks which is capable of creating a wide range of print applications, including indoor decorations, posters, shop or event decorations, and vehicle-wraps. Quick-drying SS21 orange and light black inks are available for both printers.
“These two printers were unveiled at Viscom Italia and were received enthusiastically by attendees,” Horsten adds. “They demonstrate Mimaki’s dedication to developing leading-edge solutions for the signage and large format sectors. They also reflect our ability to deliver market-tailored solutions that enhance the creativity of our customers and their ability to deliver exceptional results, allowing them to work effectively and profitably in these demanding market sectors.”
Mimaki is exclusively distributed in the UK & Ireland by Hybrid Services Ltd and the company’s national sales manager, sign & graphics, John de la Roche comments: “Seeing the CJV300 and the new 150 Series machines in action at Viscom Italia was a revelation. Visitors to Viscom Frankfurt will be able to appreciate the substantial productivity benefits the new printers offer and the full range will shortly be available to demo in the UK at our showroom and with our specialist resellers.”
