Mimaki is launching its latest generation of small format UV flatbed printers that can print on anything at FESPA 2017. The addition of the new UJF-3042MkII EX to the UJF-MkII range offers unique opportunities for companies looking for a direct to object printer that can deliver real value-added functionality.

There were a lot of very good looking stands at Sign & Digital this year, but the one that really caught my attention was Epson. I was impressed at how well the company was able to seamlessly display the all-round capabilities of its SureColor eco-solvent and dye-sublimation printers featuring a wrapped car, wallpaper, signage and textiles, and how they were able to produce rich and perfectly-matched colours all blended together in a single display wall.

Macclesfield-based R A Smart has installed additional print hardware at Your Print Partner (YPP) who has added a Mimaki JFX200-2513 grand format flatbed and a Mimaki UJV-55 3.2m roll fed UV LED printer to its already established textile, dye sublimation and solvent printing business.

The Sign & Digital UK show wouldn’t be the same without Mutoh’s UK distributor Colourgen who this year celebrates 17 years attending the show.

The moving print head carriage of a swissQprint UV printer immediately halts should it come into contact with a person or object. The system also stops instantly if there is a danger of the print head grazing the substrate, typically where there are undulations or raised edges. People and print heads are thus protected. But what about the print item and the work carried out so far? This is where swissQprint has figured out a new software feature that looks set to save users both time and money by avoiding reprints.

A rumour doing the rounds at the C!Print exhibition in Lyon, France is that Mimaki Europe’s EMEA General Manager of Marketing Mike Horsten is set to depart Mimaki and join HP.

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.
