Mimaki, the major manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutting plotters, will have their long-missed meeting with the Turkish market at FESPA Eurasia 2021. Mimaki Eurasia will exhibit the new models, as well as other printing and cutting solutions, at their booths A20 / B20 / C20 / D20 in Hall 10 at the exhibition to be held at IFM on December, 2-5.
Mimaki Eurasia will host their visitors at the largest booth of the exhibition with an area of 624 m2 and aims to increase visitor comfort and enable them to make better use of their time with four island concept. Visitors will be able to experience advanced Mimaki solutions in Sign Graphics (SG), Industrial Products (IP), Textile and Apparel (TA) as well as 3D printing in operation. In addition to the textile island designed like a living room, the illuminated printing applications that decorate the booth walls will also attract attention. Besides, surprise prints will be presented to the visitors during the event.
Mimaki Eurasia Area Sales Manager Hüseyin Şarerler has said that they are making significant preparations to offer new opportunities to the printing and signage industry. Reminding that they participated in the last FESPA Eurasia 2019 and that the show could not be held last year due to the pandemic, Şarerler said; “The printing industry managed to overcome the effects of the pandemic very quickly and entered the growth process rapidly. The revival seen in several markets naturally increases the demand for the printing industry and this, in turn, encourages new investments. As Mimaki, in addition to the innovations we will offer to our users in terms of printing speeds and quality, we have prepared serious discounts to create more suitable investment budgets. We look forward to discussing the opportunities to create added value with our users at FESPA Eurasia 2021, where we will be present with our advanced printing solutions in several fields from signage to textiles, from industrial applications to 3D printing”.
New models are at FESPA Eurasia for the first time
Various new UV printing models developed by Mimaki will meet the market at FESPA Eurasia 2021, for the first time in Turkey. Visitors will have the chance to experience the JFX600-2513 UV-LED flatbed printers, UJF-3042MkII e and UJF-6042MkII e UV-LED printers and UJF-7151plus II UV-LED printers. In addition, TS55-1800 sublimation transfer inkjet printer will be presented to the attention of customers with new investment advantages and with its updated price.
JFX600-2513 UV-LED flatbed printer increases production speed by 300% compared to previous models with its increased number of printheads and strengthened hardware. Developed to meet various demands of print service providers, the model offers printing on a wide variety of materials up to 6 cm thick, such as resin, wood, glass and metal used in signage and decoration works. Representing a significant improvement in productivity, the JFX600-2513 also greatly expands the colour gamut. It is able to work with different ink sets and reach a much richer colour gamut with six colour configurations. This model can perform 2.5D prints successfully and was also powered by Mimaki Core Technologies. In addition, Mimaki’s GREENGUARD Gold certified UV inks used in printing also ensure that the safety criteria required for the environment and human health are met.
Mimaki’s new UJF-MkII e Series printers, offering a large capacity for direct printing to small format products, will also be ready at the booth. In addition to the UJF-3042MkII e UV-LED printing model with a 300 x 420 mm printing area, the UJF-6042MkII e UV-LED printer with a 610 x 420 mm printing area has also been equipped with lots of innovations. The laser sensor enables the material to be detected in a controlled manner and prevents the print head from contacting the material. This gap control sensor detects the material with superior accuracy even in transparent materials and prevents problems before they occur. 3.45-inch full-colour screens make operators’ jobs easier. The printers in the UJF-MkII e Series enable photo-quality printing on a wide variety of flexible and rigid materials, including leather, wood, acrylic, metal, glass and allow users to create added value and quickly get a return on their investment.
Another Mimaki innovation awaiting visitors at FESPA Eurasia visitors will be the UJF-7151plus II UV-LED printer. This model has 8 print heads providing dual four-colour (CMYK) ink configuration, increasing the production speed by 190% compared to the previous version. The UJF-7151plus II offers users more speed and new printing possibilities. While MFD2 (half-toning) function improves image quality, advantages such as sharper edges, fine/delicate lines and reduced colour irregularities are also caught in prints. Offering superior image quality up to 1080p dpi, the UJF-7151plus II can give prints a glossy appearance without varnish and create distinctive textures with its innovative Colour Gloss function.
Other solutions to be offered for signage and different applications include; JV100-160 eco-solvent printer, UJV100-160 UV-LED roll-to-roll printer, CJV150-160 integrated print/cut machine, JFX200-2513 EX UV-LED printer, CG-130SRIII cutting plotter and LA-160W laminator.
TS55-1800 increased investment attractiveness in textile printing
Mimaki Eurasia will also present the model TS55-1800 sublimation transfer printer with a surprise discount, which has been receiving great interest from the Turkish printing industry. Increasing its investment attractiveness with its updated price, TS55-1800 also reduces production costs with its new 2-liter Sb614 inks. This printer can reach speeds of up to 140 m2 per hour in single-pass printing mode on transfer paper and provides very rich application opportunities for entry and mid-level market segments. TS55-1800 guarantees superior quality results on both low and high-length jobs and offers an attractive choice for lots of different applications such as sheets & pillowcases, tablecloths, sports and fashion apparel, flags, carpets and interior fabrics. This sublimation transfer printer is equipped with Mimaki Core Technologies such as Nozzle Check Unit (NCU), Nozzle Recovery System (NRS), Mimaki Advanced Pass System (MAPS4) just like other Mimaki solutions. Thus, users can perform uninterrupted, error-free, secure and high-quality printing at the lowest cost.
