Mimaki Europe, developer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutting machines for the sign/graphics, and apparel markets, has bagged two prestigious awards at the recently concluded FESPA 2017 expo, a leading digital print expo, held at Hamburg, Germany from, May 8 to 12, 2017. It was the most successful expo ever with two stands totalling 534 square metres.

Mimaki Europe received two prestigious awards for the best object printer for the Mimaki UJF-MkII Series and the best textile printer under 100 square/h for the Mimaki Tx300P-1800 with its dual ink capability. At the show, Mimaki Europe also introduced Yuji Ikeda as its new managing director.

Ronald van den Broek, general manager sales at Mimaki Europe said, “We were especially pleased with attendee interest in the technology demonstration of our 3D printer, the Mimaki 3DUJ-P. Based on Mimaki’s advanced UV inkjet technology, the 3DUJ-P offers high definition modelling with a maximum size of 500 x 500 x 300 millimetres.”

Van den Broek also reports that Mimaki’s new high-speed direct-to-textile Tiger-1800B printer was also well received. It was the first time that Mimaki showcased the printer with sublimation ink after demonstrating the machine with reactive ink in previous shows.

In the textile hall, where the high-speed, direct-to-textile Tiger-1800B with sublimation ink took centre stage, Mimaki also had on display the award-winning Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B direct-to-textile printers, updated to simultaneously load both textile pigment and sublimation dye inks. This enables the use of a single printer to print directly on a wide range of textiles without the need to change out ink systems.

According to Van den Broek, many visitors to the stand were seeking solutions that would enable them to print on natural fibres with solutions like the Tx300P-1800 with textile pigment ink. Visitors were interested in using sublimation printing for Fast Fashion and soft signage. In addition to learning about the Mimaki printers on display, visitors to the Mimaki stand discovered the wide range of applications that Mimaki printers are able to produce. (GK)
