Mimaki Europe, the manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, has recently announced the technologies, including the JFX600-2513, UJF-MkII e Series and 3DUJ-2207, that will all be on show at their stand (Stand 2G34) during the Salon C!Print event (1-3 February, Lyon, France). This marks the French debut of Mimaki’s most recently launched printers.

Visitors to the Mimaki booth will be able to view both the printers and the extensive applications possible, encompassing all sectors from sign graphics and industrial, to textile and 3D. Divided into three main sections, Mimaki will display 7 advanced solutions including flatbed, UV, and 3D printers. The booth will also include an interactive exhibit of success stories and application examples from customers, celebrating their achievements and the potential of Mimaki’s technologies.

As a gold partner for the event, Mimaki will feature prominently in Salon C!Print’s show ‘Café de la Personnalisation’. At the heart of the show, the café exhibit will feature live demonstrations of product personalization on objects. Here, Mimaki will be showcasing a broad range of personalized applications printed on the UJF-3042MkII e at the café.

One of the highlights of the Mimaki booth will be the new industrial JFX600-2513 – a large-format UV flatbed printer with 200 square meter per hour production speeds, which is up to 300 percent faster than its predecessor thanks to its increased number of printheads and strengthened hardware. The new model also features an increased color spectrum with six color configurations and the ability to work with different ink sets.

The newest UV flatbed printers from the UJF series will also take center stage at Salon C!Print. In addition to the UJF-3042MkII e exhibited at the ‘Café de la Personnalisation’, the UJF-6042MkII e will also be showcased on the company’s booth. The printers enable photo-quality printing on a wide variety of flexible and rigid materials, including leather, wood, acrylic, metal, and glass, providing users with a versatile, high-quality solution that can deliver a quicker return on investment.

Another new printer being showcased will be the 3DUJ-2207, which integrates with the brand new end-to-end 3D printing solution designed to simplify the process. Never before demonstrated in France, this affordable, compact 3D printer promises to bring high-quality, accurate, full-color 3D printing within the reach of many more businesses who require or would benefit from prototyping. The smaller design ensures the solution can fit into an office environment, while its water-soluble support materials make model production quick and easy. Mimaki will also showcase the new 3D Print prep Pro software for its 3DUJ printer range, as well as the 3DCS-322, a post-processing unit for the Mimaki 3DUJ-2207, developed in collaboration with AM Solutions – 3D post-processing technology.

Other solutions on display include several printers from the popular entry-level ‘100 Series’, the UJV100-160 UV-LED roll-to-roll printer for the production of high-quality graphics, the TS100-1600 dye-sublimation printer for the textile industry, and the JV100-160 roll-to-roll eco-solvent printer for the sign and graphics sector, as well as the CG-160FXII Plus cutting plotter.

“We’re looking forward to the opportunity to demonstrate the diverse range of applications these ground-breaking, advanced print solutions can deliver. As Salon C!Print is the foremost print show in France, we’ve tailored the technology on our booth to include solutions and applications that have the most potential to inspire visitors and enhance our customers’ businesses and product portfolios,” comments Martial Granet, branch manager, Mimaki France. “Our solutions are designed to enable printers to achieve unparalleled flexibility and enhanced application opportunities for increased and diversified business growth. This has been crucial over the last couple of years and has enabled our customers to not only survive but continue to grow their businesses, despite the challenges of the pandemic. As we start a new year, we are excited to share these latest, pioneering technologies with the French market and further support our customers to explore new revenue streams that drive their businesses forward.”

This interactive experience for the French printing community will not end after C!Print finishes, with live demonstrations continuing over at the new Mimaki Experience Center in Paris (opening February 2022).

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
