Mimaki Ujf 3042 Operation Panels

Mimaki, a world leader in manufacturing wide format inkjet printers and cutting machines, will be using its debut at the Fachpack exhibition in Germany to demonstrate its recently launched entry-level and high-end UJF Series UV inkjet printers and versatile print and cut solutions.  Visitors to the Printpack Hall – where Mimaki are in Hall 7, on Stand 608 – will be able to experience their on-demand printing solutions for proofing, sampling and mockup creation, with its label printing solutions on show in the Labeling and Marking Equipment Hall (where their stand is in Hall 4, Stand 561).

Proofing, Mockups and Sampling

In Hall 7, Mimaki will showcase its groundbreaking range of entry level and high end proofing and package prototype printing solutions for the flexo, gravure and metal printing markets, developed in partnership with GMG, the world’s leading colour management solutions provider. The printing solution consists of Mimaki’s UJF Series (UJF-706 and UJF-3042), GMG’s ColorServer colour management software for fully automatic colour conversions, and the GMG SmartProfiler for printer calibration and profiling. This solution allows printers to digitally produce consistent and accurate colour on virtually any material, including untreated plastic materials (e.g. PET), polycarbonates, metal, soft packaging film, shrink film, PLA, as well as coated and uncoated papers. Furthermore, this innovative solution offers the ability to produce high quality on-demand full colour contract proofing on the final materials intended for the job.

Label Inkjet Printing and Cutting

As run lengths shorten and turnaround times decrease; digital print with its short run, short lead time and variable data propositions is expected to make even more of an impact on the packaging industry. On stand in Hall 4 (Stand 561) Mimaki will show its integrated inkjet print and cut solution, the CJV30, and their compact UV printer, the UJF-3042. The CJV30, available in four sizes (with 60,100,130 &160cm print widths) and incorporating the award-winning printing technology used in the popular JV33-series, will print and cut labels in a single process. Also on display is the recently introduced UJF-3042, the world’s first A3 size UV LED printer. This printer offers direct printing onto all kinds of substrates up to 5 cm thick, such as labels made of plastics and more.

Gert Jan van Hilten, Manager Marketing Communication, at Mimaki Europe comments: ”Our show debut comes at a time when Mimaki is the only manufacturer to offer both entry level and high end UV inkjet printing solutions for proofing, producing mockups and package prototypes for the gravure, flexo, offset and digital print sectors. Together with software vendor GMG, Mimaki offers complete solutions to the market.”
