Mimaki CJV150 triumphs at EDP Awards

Mimaki, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers, is proud to announce that it has been recognised at FESPA 2015 with a European Digital Press Association (EDP) award for ‘Best Print and Cut Solution’. 

 The Mimaki CJV150 Series brings simultaneous print/cut operations to an affordable entry-level printer at a print speed of up to 56.2 square meters per hour. The award was accepted by Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing of Mimaki EMEA, at a special awards ceremony held during the show. 

“We are delighted to be recognized once again by the EDP for our continuing efforts to bring innovative products to the digital printing market. We strive to develop solutions that open up new revenue opportunities for our customers and for the industry,” says Horsten. “The CJV150 Series is the most versatile printer in our broad portfolio and reflects our ability to deliver market-tailored solutions that enhance the creativity of our customers and their ability to deliver exceptional results, allowing them to work effectively and profitably in demanding market sectors. The new printer series joins one of the industry’s largest portfolios of sign and display graphics printers, bringing high performance capabilities to an entry-level printer that is both affordable and compact enough to fit into even the most space-constrained environments.”

The CJV150 Series was unveiled in the Autumn of 2014. It’s newly-developed staggered printhead delivers a wider print swath and ink drops ranging from 4 pl to 35 pl for beautiful, high-resolution printing. Continuous register mark detection enables the continuous cutting of an entire roll of media while simultaneously taking up unrolled media. Zero margin register marks reduce media consumption by eliminating the margins between register marks, for less waste of often costly media.

“The judges, and indeed, our customer base, have also been impressed by the availability of both solvent and water-based sublimation inks and the ability to create a wide range of unique print applications with these printers, including indoor decorations, posters, shop or event decorations, and vehicle-wraps. Newly developed silver ink delivers a brightness 1.67 times greater than that of conventional silver inks for high value-added printing and mirror effect results that exceed conventional expectations and enable the production of more than 648 colours in the metallic colour collection. Quick-drying SS21 orange and light black inks are also available for these printers, extending the range of compelling signs and displays that can be created. This scope of capability is truly unprecedented in a printer in this class,” Horsten concludes.

Every one of the flatbed, solvent and textile printers shown on the Mimaki stand during FESPA 2015 has been a previous EDP Award winner. Mike Horsten concludes: “With 40 years of continual innovation and development to draw on, Mimaki takes enormous pride in being able to show only award-winning products at FESPA.
