Mimaki Europe Presenting at FESPA Africa 2019

Takes place Sept. 11-13, 2019, at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Mimaki Europe will be presenting at FESPA Africa 2019, which takes place Sept. 11-13, 2019, at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The company will be represented by its distributor in Africa, Graphix Supply World on stand D21-43, hall 3.

Mimaki’s new JFX200-2513 EX large flatbed UV inkjet printer will be exhibited in Africa for the first time at the exhibition.

With a new print mode and an extra printhead, the JFX200-2513 EX boasts substantial productivity increases on previous JFX models – when printing in four colors plus white it reaches a 280% speed increase in draft mode, and 100% faster in all other print modes.

Its predecessor, the JFX200-2513, however, will not be replaced by the new model but offered to the market at a new attractive price point.

Also equipped with Mimaki’s cutting-edge 2.5D Texture Maker, the JFX200-2513 EX uniquely enables smooth embossed print with enticing-to-touch dimensional textured effects at the touch of a button.

Ideal for demanding production workflows, the JFX200-2513 EX prints on substrates up to 2,500mm x 1,300mm (98.4″ x 51.2″), in a wide variety of materials including whiteboard, transparent/colored board, wood, cardboard and metal.

“Mimaki has a history of pioneering innovation and continues that vision, maintaining its position at the forefront of advancements in digital printing. Each new technology that we introduce has been developed to support our customers’ success today and to support their future growth for tomorrow too,” said Bert Benckhuysen, senior product manager EMEA, Mimaki Europe.

Mimaki will also expound the benefits of its latest 3D printing solution, the 3DFF-222. Based on Fused Filament Fabrication and using PLA material, the 3DFF-222 is designed to enable sign and display printers to produce jigs used in direct-to-object printing in-house. The 3D printer will be combined with the Mimaki UJF MkII series in Johannesburg to illustrate to visitors how production costs can be reduced and new profitable markets reached by introducing the 3D printer to their businesses and employing it to its full capacity.

Full color, fine detail models produced by the Mimaki 3DUJ-553 3D printer will also be exhibited on the stand.

FESPA Africa visitors will get exclusive insights into the SWJ-320EA solvent printer.

“Epitomizing our show theme ‘Imagine the Future of Print’ and building on our industry-acclaimed printing platforms, we will empower our visitors to become forward-thinkers, boost productivity and ensure healthy margins,” Benckhuysen said.
