Hybrid set for UK first with new Mimaki UJF-6042 MkII

Following its unveiling at VISCOM Paris, the new and upgraded Mimaki UJF-6042 MkII small format UV flatbed printer has landed on UK soil and is now available for demonstration at UK and Irish Mimaki distributor; Hybrid Services.

The brand new A2 Mimaki UJF-3042/6042 Mk II LED flatbed UV printer offers a number of superior features over its highly successful predecessor, such as increased productivity with print speeds 20% faster than before and exceptional print quality, as Hybrid’s National Sales Manager for Industrial Products, Stuart Cole describes; “We’re delighted to announce the installation of this exciting new product in our showroom in South Cheshire and are really looking forward to providing demonstrations to all interested parties. The UJF series has been hugely popular since its launch in 2009 and now we can see that Mimaki, true to form, has looked at the expanding needs of both the sign and graphics and the manufacturing industries and produced a model that exceeds expectations.”

The UJF-6042 MkII was launched in September along with the smaller UJF-3042 MkII, which replaces the UJF-3042HG, with both the new models printing thicknesses up to 153mm. Their compatibility with a range of Mimaki’s versatile UV inksets, including LUS-120 with flexibility up to 170% to deliver to a plethora of applications and LUS-150 with superior adhesion for outdoor purposes, makes them appealing to several different sectors.

The new MkII printers will sit alongside Mimaki’s other offerings in the UJF series; the affordable entry-level UJF-3042FX that has seen copious installations across the UK and Ireland over the last 7 years, and the illustrious UJF-7151plus which gives on-demand printing of the very highest quality at industrial production level. “We want to provide people with the opportunity to have a holistic overview of Mimaki’s UJF Series and its capabilities all within the comfort of our showroom,” continues Cole. “Installation of the UJF-3042 MkII is expected shortly, meaning we will be able to demonstrate a wide selection of direct-to-object applications with a variety of ink types under one roof, giving print companies the ideal opportunity to get acquainted with this superb range of small format flatbed printers.”
