Mimaki USA, a global industry leader of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, has announced a marketing program with Avery Dennison, a global materials science and manufacturing company specializing in the design and manufacture of a wide variety of labeling and functional materials. With this collaboration, Mimaki’s UCJV Series printers, utilizing LUS-170 or LUS-200 inks, will now be added to the Avery Dennison Integrated Component System (ICS) Performance Guarantee.

The ICS Performance Guarantee combines Avery Dennison films with qualified printing components to form a system that offers compatibility and provides outstanding performance. Through joint developmental work between Avery Dennison and Mimaki USA, the UCJV Series printers, using either LUS ink sets, have withstood rigorous testing and met the stringent durability and physical performance specifications to achieve ICS Performance Guarantee status. Under this guarantee, Mimaki’s LUS-170 ink supports a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications, while the LUS-200 ink is ideal for curved surface applications like vehicle wraps and fleet graphics.

“We are pleased to add Mimaki’s UCJV Series printers with both LUS-170 and LUS-200 ink sets to our ICS Performance Guarantee portfolio. The addition of this platform provides our customers another premium printing solution for their commercial graphic needs, and expands the digital solutions available from Avery Dennison’s and Mimaki’s strong working relationship,” said Paul Roba, OEM relationship manager of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions.

Mimaki’s UCJV Series printers offer in-line cutting capabilities and feature layered print technology, such as 4-layer and 5-layer for transitional or double facing images. Utilizing flexible UV-LED inks that cure instantly, customers can quickly print and laminate or deliver the finished product without waiting for drying. With GREENGUARD Gold certified inks, the UCJV Series printers have met some of the world’s most comprehensive standards for low emissions of VOCs.

“Our UCJV Series printers provide a total workflow solution, so our print service providers can produce a variety of high-quality applications quickly and effectively. Mimaki is excited to offer Avery Dennison’s ICS Performance Guarantee. Through this relationship, we believe we’re delivering the most innovative technology available on the market today,” said Volance Carlin, product manager at Mimaki USA.

Graphics produced on Avery Dennison digital media products printed with Mimaki’s UCJV Series printers are high resolution and offer leading durability for indoor and outdoor applications.

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.
