Mimaki showcased its high quality print production capabilities on a host of materials including plastic bottles and ID cards as well as metal plates at Fakuma 2014. The international trade fair for plastics processing took place at the Neue Messe 1 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, from October 14th to 18th.

“The plastic market is one of the fastest moving sectors in the industry,” explains Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe. “Ease of production is converging with the increasing demand for more eye-catching and creative materials including black, white, silver and transparent solutions. This is driving market suppliers to push developmental and creative boundaries with their solutions and we are delighted to be demonstrating what we can help both suppliers and customers achieve at Fakuma 2014.”

Under the slogan “Let’s Create…Together”, Mimaki highlights the array of possibilities delivered by its UJF-3042 LED UV flatbed printer. It is ideal for short runs and on demand printing directly onto materials up to 50mm thick for uses as varied as coloured pencils to USB sticks.

Also on show was Mimaki’s A2 format UJF-6042 LED UV flatbed printer offering greater versatility and photo-quality 1800dpi x 1800dpi print reproduction onto an almost limitless range of materials, objects and substrates up to 150mm thick. It is ideal for a host of applications including gifts and novelties, 3D lenticular products, photo albums and name plates.

Horsten expands: “These solutions, along with Mimaki’s portfolio, are constantly evolving with an increasingly stronger emphasis on sustainability and innovation. But it is their ability to address the increased market interest towards value-added customisation and personalisation that generates customer engagement.”
