“Mimaki received, not one, but three EDP Awards at last night’s ceremony during the Drupa show in Dusseldorf, Germany. The awards, presented by the European Digital Press Association, are a great recognition of the hard work and creativity of our Research and Development (R&D) teams, who have been bringing their customer-driven ideas to fruition. It’s definitely a humbling experience and a tremendous honour for us.”
“Mimaki has secured a hat-trick of European Digital Press Association (EDP) Awards, presented yesterday at Drupa 2016.”
“The Mimaki UJV55-320 has been named Best Wide Format Roll-to-Roll Printer up to 320 cm; the Mimaki UJF-7151 plus, the Best Special Object Printer; and the Mimaki TX300P the Best Textile Printer Roll-to-Roll up to 100 sqm/h. The awards were accepted by Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing of Mimaki EMEA, at a special ceremony held during the show.”
Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing of Mimaki Europe “To achieve one EDP award is an honour – three is a great recognition of the hard work and creativity of our research and development teams in not only bringing market leading solutions to fruition but also in identifying emerging trends and how we can help customers make the most of the opportunities they present,” says Horsten. “The UJV55-320 is the perfect complement to existing sign and display graphics production platforms as well as an affordable market entry for operations looking for new sign revenue streams. The Mimaki UJF-7151 plus addresses a growing demand for digital, on-demand and plateless inkjet printing because of its ability to quickly provide high-mix and low-volume printing.
Mike Horsten adds, “With the Mimaki TX300P-1800, we were mindful of the shift in textile production from both analogue to digital and from centralised to distributed production. We envision a day not too far in the future when consumers will be able to download or create their own patterns rather than being limited to commercially available designs. The TX300P-1800 is ideal for this new distributed model of textile printing.”
