Mimaki Engineering will focus its efforts on demonstrations of print onto diverse fabrics at the InPrint show. Mimaki’s TS500-1800 sublimation printer will be among the systems showcased on booth H16 along with solutions from Mimaki’s UJF Series and the JFX500-2131, highlighting the company’s broad textile printing portfolio. “We’re constantly raising the bar in terms of the cost, quality and flexibility metrics for high quality small lot printing of textiles, even when using stretchy fabrics,” says Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA, Mimaki Europe B.V.
Mimaki’s expertise and innovative industrial design concepts provide a solid platform to give Mimaki a key profile at this show. With industrial printing taking giant leaps forward and inkjet technology playing a significant role in this booming market, Mimaki’s innovative product portfolio based upon its UV-curable inkjet technology is bound to excite the visitor with the promise of a range of interesting business opportunities.
Frazer Chesterman, Co-Director, InPrint comments, ”I am delighted to have Mike as one of the InPrint Ambassadors and Mimaki as joining the development of InPrint as we have been able to create an event that better meets the needs of the market. InPrint has already positioned itself rightfully as one of the most important launch events the European print industry has seen in recent years. Almost everyone we meet agrees that industrial print represents a tremendous opportunity for all that work within it.”
Horsten concludes, “Industrial printing is a vital manufacturing process and inkjet technology is increasingly being used in the industrial sector. Mimaki’s innovative printing technologies can be used in the production of many goods across many sectors. The InPrint Exhibition is a forward looking arena where we can communicate with Europe’s decision makers who will be looking out for innovation for industrial print production. The Mimaki machinery is bound to speed up the gradually growing transition to digital printing in the worlds of textiles and apparel. They will enable fashion designers and others in the industry to produce vibrant small lot products on unique materials, which was previously not possible with digital printing. This includes cotton, silk, hemp and rayon – all popular fabrics in the world of fashion design. We are looking forward to InPrint 2014 to demonstrate the quality product that Mimaki machines can produce.”
