Hybrid to debut new Mimaki printers at Sign & Digital UK 2016
Sign & Digital UK 2016 will see a series of new product launches from exclusive UK and Irish Mimaki distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd, including an LED UV printer making its first outing in the sign and graphics industry.
In addition, Hybrid will also be showing the MTEX Blue direct to textile printer on its stand situated at the entrance to the exhibition.
“Visitors to Sign & Digital UK will witness the very newest technology the minute they walk through the door of the show”, says Hybrid’s National Sales Manager – Industrial Products, Stuart Cole. “Our new Mimaki UJF-7151plus Production LED UV flatbed printer will be one of the first machines they see, so we’re excited to set the tone for what we’re sure will be a fantastic show.”
The Mimaki UJF-7151plus is a mid-format flatbed printer that features exceptionally detailed output coupled with low running costs. With a 710x510mm bed size and industrial construction; consistently high print quality is ensured, making it appealing to screen printers looking for a digital solution that can increase their flexibility as well as quality.
Hybrid is to also show the MTEX Blue dye sublimation printer on its stand for the first time. “The buzz around soft signage and textile printing continues to increase,” says Hybrid’s National Sales Manager – Textile & Apparel, Stephen Woodall. “The MTEX Blue has Mimaki technology at its core and offers a solution that incorporates fixation, enabling users to print and cure dye sublimation ink onto polyester in one process.” Firmly targeted at the retail PoS, display graphics and exhibition sectors, the new system should see considerable interest at the show, as Woodall concludes, “Companies looking at investing in dedicated textile hardware for the first time will find the ideal solution in the MTEX Blue – it’s easy to use, delivers a vibrant and long lasting print direct to polyester and opens whole new revenue streams for signmakers and print providers.”
Also featuring on the Hybrid stand will be Mimaki solvent printers and printer/cutters, as the company’s National Sales Manager – Sign & Graphics, John de la Roche outlines, “I’m confident we’ll have a solution on the stand for everyone – from start-ups visiting the show for the first time to seasoned professionals. For example, Mimaki’s CJV150 range of printer/cutters is incredibly well priced yet sports features far in advance of even its closest competitor and the range doesn’t stop there!”
