On-Demand Car Wrapping with UV Print Technology
MTR Indoor Outdoor Signing, a sign maker located in Limburg, The Netherlands, recently invested in the UCJV300-160, the latest large format, UV LED curable integrated printing/cutting machine from Mimaki One month in, owner Marco Tobben wonders how they ever managed without it.
Let’s face it: the world will never be 100% environmentally friendly – at least not during my lifetime, which I plan to continue for at least another five to six decades. Sustainability is one of those hyped words that everyone uses and interprets freely based on their own definition. Many companies claim that their product is sustainable, albeit based only on a narrow set of attributes. More often than not, we as customers just take their word for it. A company, for example, can claim sustainability solely based on ink characteristics, without considering other factors such as power consumption or ink usage. Don’t get me wrong, any progress toward a more sustainable world should be applauded, but I personally think taking one concrete approach at a time is the way to go.
Mimaki, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutting systems, today reported that the European Digital Press Association (EDP) has honoured the company with two prestigious EDP awards. Europe’s 21 leading trade magazines with an editorial focus on digital print processes come together each year to honour the best technological developments among products and other developments announced or presented within the previous 12 months.
Mimaki has announced that its production-class Tiger-1800B digital textile printer family has been enhanced with new features and capabilities as the company continues to drive higher quality in digital textile printing. The Tiger-1800B MkII, which will debut at FESPA 2018, offers an additional high-quality mode at 1,200dpi and several enhancements to improve quality, including reduction of banding and other printing defects.
Mimaki Europe has announced that the company’s UCJV Series with LUS-200 inks will carry the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty; the most comprehensive finished graphics warranty in the industry. The warranty will be available in Europe from mid-summer 2018.
