Hybrid to present latest Mimaki technology at Sign & Digital UK

Mimaki’s exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland, Hybrid Services, is to use its prime position at the entrance to the upcoming Sign & Digital UK exhibition to show a broad selection of the latest solutions from the Japanese technology manufacturer.

With an unrivalled line-up of products ranging from production solvent printers to the latest full colour 3D printing systems, visitors will be able to view new machines and applications, as well as discuss the opportunities they create with the Hybrid team on the stand.

“Mimaki’s huge range of solutions present businesses with multiple opportunities to expand, diversify and develop their printing capabilities,” states Duncan Jefferies, Hybrid’s head of marketing and business development. “We’ll have some exciting new hardware for visitors to get up close to, and we very much look forward to discussing the significant potential it offers their companies.”

Visitors will be able to view two of the three, recently introduced Mimaki 330 Series printers. Featured on the stand are both the dedicated solvent print only JV330-160, and its integrated solvent printer/cutter sibling, the CJV330. Also available as the dye sublimation-specific TS330-1600, the three models share a common 1.6m platform, offering high performance and productivity, coupled with ease of use.

A pair of multi-award winning flatbed UV printers at opposite ends of the size spectrum will also be on show, with the A2/A3 format UJF Series displayed alongside the best-selling JFX200-2513EX 8’ x 4’ model. Both offer trademark print quality for direct to substrate printing, with the UJF leading the way in the small format arena, and the JFX being the go-to option for print providers producing large format signage, graphics and décor.

Mimaki’s ground-breaking full colour 3D printer – along with numerous samples that demonstrate its commercial and creative capabilities, will also be presented at Sign & Digital UK. “Mimaki’s move into the 3D printing sector has generated substantial interest,” continues Jefferies. “The 3DUJ-2207 is a unique proposition with its comparatively low cost of entry breaking the barriers to this extremely creative sector. Offering a powerful solution to teaching establishments, architects, TV and props creators, gaming companies and other creative businesses, the output has to be seen to be believed, and we’ll have a wide array of full colour 3D printed models for visitors to view.”

In addition, the Hybrid stand will feature further printers and cutters from Mimaki’s Sign & Graphics range, including popular solvent and UV roll-fed models such as the UCJV300-160, a 1.6m LED UV printer/cutter offering considerable creative opportunities, and two models from the entry level 100 Series – the UJV100-160 1.6m UV printer and the JV100-160 solvent printer.

“Sign & Digital UK is the ideal opportunity for businesses to research the very latest printing technology and we look forward to the suite of Mimaki solutions on the Hybrid stand being at the very heart of the show,” Jefferies concludes.
