Mimaki adds rotary Kebab option on new UJF UV flatbed printers for cylindrical printing

Mimaki has announced that it is making its popular Kebab option available for the new UJF-3042MkII and UJF-6042MkII; its latest generation of UV flatbed printers. Using rotary rollers, the innovative device enables high quality printing on cylindrical products with diameters from 10mm to 110mm, including wine and water bottles, seals, candles, cosmetics bottles and more, making it possible and affordable to produce on-demand original products in short or even individual runs.

The Kebab option has historically enabled Mimaki customers to be highly creative, opening up new business and revenue streams in sectors such as the cosmetics industry, where regulatory requirements differ between countries. It also makes one-off, direct-print labelling affordable; be it for a personalised product or as a gift. Mimaki also highlights the wine bottle sector as a growth area with commemorative and celebratory personalised prints proving popular.

“Our customers have been very creative in their use of the Kebab option,” says Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing of Mimaki EMEA. “And for many, it has opened up new businesses and new revenue streams. Cosmetics bottles are a good example. With the many different regulatory requirements from country to country, short runs of cosmetics bottles are becoming more common. In addition, the Kebab option makes it very affordable to produce one-off direct-print labelling. This could be a personalised bottle or a bottle memorialising a special event to be used as a gift item. Printing directly to wine bottles is also popular; consider a wedding or another special event where wine bottles can be personalised to the event. Both Mimaki and our customers are very excited about the possibilities this offers, and that is why we are adding the Kebab option to our newest generation of printers.”

The new UJF-3042MkII and UJF-6042MkII printers feature print speeds that are 20% faster than its predecessors. These machines, like most printers from Mimaki, also have the ability to use different types of inks, thus supporting a very wide range of applications. 

In addition to the durable inks that adhere well to glass and other substrates taking advantage of the Kebab option, LUS-120 inks can also be used for printing on soft material surfaces such as membrane switches or wallet smartphone cases, since they can stretch up to 170% without cracking when pressed or folded. Moreover, the LH-100 rigid inks are perfect for accessories or stationery products that have to withstand high levels of abrasion. These inks, when used with Mimaki’s PR-200 inkjet primer, are also an excellent choice for printing on glass, metal and resins, which has traditionally been difficult for UV-curable inks. With Mimaki Clear Control (MCC), the clear varnish can be used to both highlight areas with spot or flood coating, as well as to deliver embossing with multiple passes.
