Under the theme ‘Imagine the Future of Print’, Mimaki Europe will take the visitors of FESPA Africa 2019, to be held in Johannesburg, South Africa between 11-13 September, on a journey through its cost-effective and profit-generating printing solutions.

The manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems will demonstrate how businesses can use Mimaki technology to “support increased revenues, address new markets and drive pioneering application possibilities”.

Mimaki’s latest 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 printer boasts substantial productivity increases on previous JFX models – when printing in four colours plus white it reaches a 280% speed increase in draft mode, and 100% faster in all other print modes. Equipped with Mimaki’s cutting-edge 2.5D Texture Maker, the JFX200-2513 EX enables smooth embossed print with enticing-to-touch dimensional textured effects.

“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. Based on Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 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. Full colour, fine detail models produced by the Mimaki 3DUJ-553 3D printer will be on display at the Mimaki stand.

GSW executives will furthermore be revealing details of an upcoming product release at the show. FESPA Africa visitors will get exclusive insights on the SWJ-320EA solvent printer and how it will build on the legacy of Mimaki innovation.

“We are delighted to share some of our latest innovations at FESPA Africa and we strongly believe that our technology enables printers from the region to stand out from the crowd. 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,” concluded Benckhuysen.
