Hybrid to debut Mimaki JFX600-2513 production flatbed at Sign & Digital UK

Exclusive Mimaki distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd will give the new Mimaki JFX600-2513 LED-UV large-format flatbed inkjet printer its UK and Ireland debut at Sign & Digital UK later this month. Designed to address the high-volume UV market, the JFX600 will be among the raft of new Mimaki solutions to be shown for the first time at the exhibition in Birmingham. Engineered for high speeds and high productivity, the new flatbed offers print service providers a broader variety of applications thanks to a wider range of ink types and increased media flexibility.

Hybrid’s Reseller Account Manager, Martin Southworth anticipates strong uptake of the new model. “Mimaki’s ongoing response to market demand for increased productivity, quality and innovation has shaped the development of this new flatbed. Providing a hugely capable solution for companies looking to boost their capacity and introduce new levels of creativity, we foresee significant opportunities with the JFX600.”

The JFX600-2513 is an 8’ x 4’ flatbed and builds on the success of Mimaki’s significant heritage in the sector. With the aim of tackling the high-end UV flatbed market, the new model incorporates 16 print heads, resulting in significant speed increases over models that currently sit within the Mimaki line-up. The printer’s wide variety of ink sets facilitates vibrant, intense colours perfect for striking indoor and outdoor signage and display graphics and the incorporation of white, clear and primer broaden the printer’s creative opportunities even further. 

Thanks to Mimaki’s seventh-generation UV print technology, the range of media this new model supports opens the door for a myriad of applications including grand format signage, interior décor and display graphics. With a maximum printing area of 2.5m x 1.3m and a thickness of 6cm, the JFX600-2513 is compatible with standard size signboards, and its direct-to-substrate capabilities also allows for printing on resin, wood, glass, and metal. The JFX600 is also capable of ‘2.5D’ multi-layered printing, creating raised texture effects for high-value, tactile applications.

Visitors to Sign & Digital UK (22-24 March) will find the new Mimaki JFX600 directly inside the entrance to the show in Hall 2. Hybrid will also be presenting new Mimaki technology including the recently announced CJV330 Series printer/cutter, the latest 100 Series UV and solvent models, the new Mimaki UJF-MkII e Series, the first showing of the compact, full colour 3DUJ-2207 3D printer as well as other printing and cutting solutions from the Japanese manufacturer.
