Dublin-based IQ Group, or Image Quest as it’s formally known, have turned to Mimaki to increase wide format printing productivity without compromising on quality or colour gamut. The company recently added a Mimaki JV300-160 and CG-160FXII cutting plotter through authorised Mimaki reseller, Reprocentre.

As part of its increasing commitment to supporting young people in print, Hybrid Services has created the Mimaki Vehicle Wrap Lab (MVWL) at the country’s foremost motorsport engineering education establishment - Oxford Brookes University - supplying a Mimaki wide format printer, cutting plotter and software package in a partnership set to take wide format print to a whole new level in British motorsports.

Mimaki says it has added Light Black to its portfolio of high-performance sublimation inks following the recent release of neon yellow and pink fluorescent inks available in two litre ink packs, all of which are ideal for low-volume, high-quality use in fashion and sportswear and swimwear.

Glass splashbacks for the kitchen industry are all the rage these days, and while there are many companies offering bespoke glass fitting and colour matching services, one company, Southern Counties Glass, has taken these products to the next level by digitally printing high resolution images directly onto the glass.

Hybrid Services has announced a raft of new UK price points and promotions across a range of wide format printers including key solvent and LED UV products from Mimaki.

It would appear that Italian digital textile printing machinery companies have become a much sought after acquisition following EFI’s purchase of the Bergamo based Reggiani Macchine last year, and now the Japanese inkjet giant Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. has snapped up the stocks of another Bergamo based textile printing machinery company, La Meccanica Costruzione Tessili-S.P.A.

An A2 format Mimaki UJF-6042 UV curing LED digital inkjet printer has proved invaluable to electronics packaging specialist Verotec who is now able to offer ultra-high resolution 1800 x 1800 dpi digital printing in up to 65536 individual colours as part of its enclosure modification services.

The increase in demand for bespoke and short run interior textiles – be it for furnishings, décor or display graphics – is showing no sign of abating. This is why Mimaki is set to launch a 3.2-m wide, roll-to-roll, dedicated transfer paper printer - TS500P-3200 - for the textile industry. The new Mimaki sublimation inkjet printer is ideal for a broad range of applications including home furnishing textiles and indoor soft signage.

Mimaki has a full show schedule planned for January 2016. The company will be exhibiting at no less than three major trade shows, each focusing on its own specific field of interest, the first of which is Heimtextil, the largest international trade fair for home and contract textiles. Heimtextil is scheduled for 12th to 15th January at Messe Frankfurt, Germany. Mimaki will be located in Hall 4.0, Stand F15.

As part of its ongoing expansion plans and in response to increased demand for wide format print, Preston-based window film and commercial graphics company Lustalux has recently added a Mimaki CJV300-160 printer/cutter – supplied by authorised Mimaki reseller Granthams - to its machine line-up.

Limitations on creative graphics continue to be lifted with the latest developments in wide format printing techniques as Paul Reeve, managing director at one of Europe’s principal suppliers of products manufactured from flexible thermoplastic coated fabrics, Structure-flex, explains.

Exclusive UK and Irish Mimaki distributor, Hybrid Services has announced an attractive price promotion on key product lines to run throughout the autumn and into the festive season. The multi-award winning Mimaki CJV150 range of printer/cutters enjoys savings across the board, with the most popular 1.3m model; the CJV150-130 available for just £9,995 + VAT during the promotion. The Mimaki UJF range of A3 and A2 flatbed LED UV printers see savings of up to £3,000 - with the A3 UJF-3042FX subsequently retailing at only £14,995 + VAT.

Mimaki has announced it will be introducing a brand-new super-fast 1.8m roll-to-roll direct-to-textile inkjet printer at ITMA in Milan next month. The company says its new printer is designed to meet the market demand for smaller lot sizes, faster delivery times and the ability to quickly produce samples.

Dudley-based DGS Supplies has invested in a Mimaki JFX200-2513 LED UV flatbed printer from printMAX to print direct-to-board and reduce time consuming finishing techniques.

Printed table cloth specialist Harberson Ltd has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the corporate linens industry, with the business transforming itself from simple supplier to now offering bespoke dye-sublimation printing of tablecloths and linen for the exhibition industry thanks to its investment in a Mimaki TS34-1800A.

Profitable industrial print production demands creative, flexible and cost-effective digital solutions. Mimaki will therefore be displaying a versatile portfolio of printing solutions at InPrint 2015, Munich Trade Fair, November 10 to 12, Hall A6, Stand A11.

At Viscom Düsseldorf 2015, Mimaki, a leading manufacturer of large format inkjet printers, will be featuring the future of sign and display graphics, large format, textile and industrial printing for increased versatility and more effective development and production within these segments. The company will be exhibiting in Hall 8b on Stand J31 at the trade show taking place from 4 – 6 November 2015 in Düsseldorf.

Hybrid Services has unveiled Mimaki’s latest direct-to-object UJF-7151plus industrial small format LED UV Inkjet flatbed printer designed for the screen printing industry with a maximum printable size of 710 x 510mm.

Exclusive UK and Irish Mimaki distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd has announced new lower pricing for its JV400 SUV wide format inkjet printer. Available in 1.3m and 1.6m widths, the new price will be £12,995 for the smaller and £13,995 for the larger options.

Exclusive UK and Irish Mimaki distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd has announced the appointment of Stephen Woodall in the role of National Sales manager – Textile and Apparel.

The Food Technology and Packaging Centre of the College of Agriculture Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE’s) Loughry Campus is facilitating a unique learning experience for its students with the assistance of its newly acquired Mimaki CF2 flatbed cutter and JV300-160 solvent printer through Belfast-based authorised Mimaki reseller Dennis D Evans.
