After a turbulent year, it seems strange to be thinking about ‘after the pandemic’, but with millions of vaccinations underway, the light at the end of the tunnel is visible. As we turn the corner, choosing technology partners that understand how to proactively respond to changing market needs and support the evolving requirements of print businesses and end customers will be vital. The printers in Mimaki’s ‘100 series’ portfolio, which consists of the high quality, high productivity entry level roll-to-roll inkjet printers – the UJV100-160 UV and the JV100-160 solvent, and the high performance textile printer, the TS100-1600, are a perfect reflection of the way technology requirements are adapting in line with the industry as we look to the future. To demonstrate this, we have identified three post-pandemic technology touchpoints that will help print businesses target success amid uncertainty.

With 167 staff across three integrated production sites in the UK and an annual turnover of £20m, imageData is one of the country's leading providers of print services for a wide range of market sectors.

Helping to drive the business forward in 2021 is their latest investment, the Onset X3 HS Dual Flex from Fujifilm.

Digital inkjet roll-to-roll UV LED printers from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. continue to deliver innovations for superwide-format graphics production printing, and they have now achieved an important certification for the quality and durability of prints used for décor applications.

Mimaki, a leading manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, unveils Innovation Days (2-4 June 2021), a collaborative virtual event, bringing together Mimaki’s regional offices to encourage and nurture innovation in the printing sector.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to further explore the newest additions to Mimaki’s product portfolio, the JFX550, JFX600 and SUJV-160, through live demonstrations following the launch of these solutions at virtual.drupa.

The virtual.drupa event also features the unveiling of a new, entry-level wide-format production solution, the EFI Pro 30h UV LED hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll printer.

Mimaki has announced the release of two new LED-UV large-format flatbed inkjet printers, the JFX600-2513 and the JFX550-2513.

Belgium based Agfa-Gevaert Group has invested in new UK premises to house both its Radiology Solutions Service Centre and a new Inkjet Solutions showroom. The site is scheduled to open in March 2021.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has led many businesses to change focus and find new work in unlikely places. One such story is that of German Fujifilm customer Copy Service, in Moenchengladbach. In spring 2020, the pandemic brought a temporary halt to all professional football across Europe, including the German Bundesliga. The season resumed after several weeks, but with one key ingredient missing - the fans.
