On its stand B1-B10 booth, Mimaki will display its flagship printers and cutters for the sign graphic, industrial, and textile markets, including the recently announced TxF150-75 Direct-to-Film (DTF) machine, the high performing 330 Series, and the entry-level 100 Series, the company said in its press release.
Mimaki Europe will return as a gold sponsor to FESPA 2023 Global Print Expo, displaying its printing and cutting technologies including the TxF150-75 DTF machine.
The company will demonstrate its commitment to sustainability and feature Dutch surrealist Rik Lina’s rainforest-inspired art.
Mimaki is focused on supporting UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Mimaki’s first foray into DTF technology, the TxF150-75 will make its international show debut at FESPA. Providing an easy and affordable process for decorating apparel, most commonly T-shirts, the TxF150-75 responds to the market need for reliable, stable DTF technology. Equipped with Mimaki’s core technologies, it prevents common issues, such as poor ink ejection and white ink clogging, ensuring that processes are carried out efficiently with minimal intervention needed.
Other notable technologies on show include Mimaki’s flagship sign and display technology from the entry-level 100 Series and the high performance 330 Series. The print and cut workflow will be demonstrated with Mimaki’s latest cutting plotter, the CG-AR series. For industrial printers, visitors can see the Mimaki’s advanced UV flatbed printers, from the smaller size UJF-6042 MkII e to the large format JFX600-2513. For textile printers, the sublimation printers TS100-1600 and TS330-1600 will also feature.
Embracing FESPA’s theme of ‘New Perspectives’, Mimaki will use this global show to recontextualise the print industry through the lens of sustainability—reinstating the company’s commitment to it, as well as engaging and collaborating with creative eco-conscious minds from across the industry.
This year Mimaki will be showcasing the Dutch surrealist Rik Lina’s visually vibrant art inspired by the natural world. The artwork headlining the booth, titled ‘Fascinated Rainforest’, is based on Lina’s own travels in the rainforests of Saba, in which he seeks to capture the essence of nature and instil the same feeling of awe in the viewer that he had while there.
The staple customer gallery will also make a return and is set to include various inspiring applications created by Mimaki’s customers across multiple sectors, from sign graphics and industrial to textile and 3D, added the release.
“The environment is a critical concern across all print sectors—including for us here at Mimaki. We are working towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, focusing on reducing wastage and water and to encourage and help printers to create sustainable applications, where possible,” said Danna Drion, general manager marketing. “We will return to FESPA to join hands with the industry to collaborate on and hopefully inspire some creative, show-stopping end-products. Like previous shows, visitors can also expect Mimaki to debut something new on our stand.”
