Mimaki calls participation at FESPA 2016 successful

At the recently concluded FESPA 2016, Mimaki said it had a successful time as it received 30 orders for the newly launched 3.2 metre wide UJV55-320 printers in the first two days of the show.

“In addition, one 180 sq. metre per hour TS500P-3200 sublimation transfer printer was sold within the first 15 minutes of the show doors opening,” a Mimaki press release said.

Mike Horsten, general manager marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe said, “We knew the new UJV55-320 press would generate strong interest, but we had no idea it would generate quite that much.”

“It is clear that its size, features and price point offer a perfect combination for both existing and new sign and display graphics businesses,” he added.

“We can truly say that this was our best ever FESPA show from both a sales and lead generation perspective, validating that we are on the right track,” Horsten stated.

The 110 sq. metre per hour UJV55-320 features a unique backlit preview lighting system that allows operators to more closely examine output as it is being printed.

It is available with four or seven newly developed LUS-120 high performance UV curable inks including white.

It delivers the versatility of twin-roll simultaneous printing together with high quality super wide output for volume production of banners, retail and exhibition signage, window graphics and other similar applications.

The roll-to-roll TS500P-3200 sublimation inkjet printer was launched last February and has been tailored to meet production needs for home furnishings and indoor soft signage.

“This system is designed to help operations take advantage of the growing trend for on-demand textile printing, from the fashion and sportswear markets to the interior décor and home furnishing sectors,” Horsten noted.

Generating almost as much on-stand interest as the UJV55-320 were the car wrap demonstrations on an Audi A1 Sportback.

The wrap was printed on Mimaki solvent printers in collaboration with media supplier Avery Dennison.

“The UJV55-320 has found a sweet spot in the hearts of sign and display graphics professionals, and we look forward to helping more operations extend their wide format portfolio of services,” Horsten informed. (AR)
