Mimaki India, a provider of digital printing of textiles, showcased its eco-solvent and UV printing solutions — roll to roll and flatbed — aimed at signage customers at the Media Expo exhibition in Greater Noida held from 14 to 16 September 2023.
Indian Printer and Publisher interacted with Kenichiro Seki, managing director of Mimaki India, who joined the company a year ago.
“We want to promote our UV technology as the market will eventually shift towards UV from eco-solvent. In terms of media compatibility, UV has a wider range of applications than eco-solvent and Mimaki is a leading provider in this segment. This exhibition serves as an opportunity to push our sales and make more potential clients,” he said.
Due to non-disclosure agreements, Mimaki did not share the names of its customers who recently booked its machines. However, Naved Nakhwa, heading marketing at Mimaki India, informed us that the Southern and Western markets are hot for the company’s UV printing machines.
“The Southern markets are more aware of the market and technology as they have already banned eco-solvent technology and are pushing for UV printing technology,” Nakhwa said, agreeing with Seki’s point of UV having a wider range of applications.
“The state governments there are very strict about reducing eco-solvent. We are planning several sales schemes to help the state governments in their endeavor and scale higher in terms of sales.”
