Mimaki demonstrated three products at the Sign India 2016 show that was held from 13 to 15 May at Bombay Exhibition Centre. The Japanese firm showcased the JV150 series wide format printer, CJV 300 series inkjet printer and cutter and UJF 3042HG UV LED curing flatbed tabletop inkjet printer.

JV150 series has printing speeds of up to 56.2 square metres an hour and has print resolution of up to 1,440 dpi. It comes in two different printing widths – 1,361mm and 1,610 mm.

The JV150 series can be configured for either eco solvent printing for sign and graphics applications or for dye-sublimation printing for textile and apparel transfer sublimation applications. Using eco solvent inks the JV150 series can print signage, vehicle graphics, point-of-purchase displays, banners, posters, exhibition graphics, to name a few. And using dye sublimation inks it can print flags, apparel, promotional items as well as other products.

The CJV 300 series integrated printer and cutter can also be configured for either eco solvent printing for sign and graphics applications or for dye-sublimation printing for textile and apparel transfer sublimation applications. The ability to pre-cut before printing prevents common problems such as film separation and other issues related to post-cutting on thin materials. It has printing speeds up to 105.9 square metres an hour and comes in two width options – 1,361mm and 1,610 mm.

The UJF 3042HG flatbed printers can print on a variety of substrates including plastics, metal, wood, leather and glass onto materials up to 12 inch by 16 inch. It can accommodate objects up to 6 inches thick. Mimaki’s UV-LED system uses less energy than other UV types, has a longer life and can print onto media that could be damaged by higher-heat systems, allowing the machine to print directly on virtually almost anything, including heat-sensitive materials. The Kebab option for UJF-3042HG model enables printing on cylindrical objects ranging from about one to 13 inches in length, with a diameter from 0.4 to 4.33 inches. It can produce custom products such as personalized beverage bottles, candles, vases, cans as well as other items.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
