Mimaki will highlight how efficient, high quality creasing and cutting on packaging board is made possible with Europe’s first exhibit of the new Mimaki CFL-605RT Compact Flatbed Cutter at the 48th Cosmoprof, taking place from 20-23 March 2015 in Bologna, Italy.
This solution delivers cost-effective designs, smoothly and quickly, for even the shortest runs. Moreover, this flatbed cutter facilitates a fast and free-flowing design process that promotes creative results and a fast route to market with immediate finishing of packaging and packaging prototypes using multiple functions in an all-in-one approach to the needs of agencies, designers, brand owners and converters.
Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe stated, ‘Packaging design has never been so flexible. Creativity is no longer restrained by long cycles of design, approval, implementation and production. Shorter runs, versioning and promotions can now be supported by highly flexible manufacturing technologies that aid a significantly faster route to market. Highly responsive production techniques also eliminate storage requirements and support more imaginative design implementation on an increasingly wider array of substrates. Mimaki’s portfolio has not only been designed to transform the final product, but also to help create a more attractive end-to-end supply chain that saves both time and costs.’
Mimaki will also demonstrate how short run on-demand printing of premium, high end and luxury items is made possible by the compact desktop Mimaki UJF-3042. It offers unrivalled versatility and high quality print reproduction on a wide range of materials, products and substrates. An enhanced level of creativity is offered by the kebab option that allows 360° direct printing on cylindrical items, including glass and plastic containers. ‘You have to see this to believe it The packages are virtually jumping into the consumer’s shopping cart,’ Horsten added.
All of the capabilities of the Mimaki UJF-3042 are also available in the larger A2 format Mimaki UJF-6042. Both printers allow greater versatility and photo-quality print reproduction on a wide range of materials, objects and substrates. An array of beauty and cosmetics packaging samples will be produced using these printers during the show.
Carton board packaging will be produced throughout the show by the compact footprint Mimaki JFX200-2513. The latest addition to Mimaki’s family of UV LED flatbed printers, the JFX200-2513 offers a range of inks, including white and clear, that can print on a broad array of substrates.
Silver ink will also be used to print metallic labels with Mimaki’s CJV150-75. This integrated printer/cutter from Mimaki can also run orange and light black inks to provide high performance, creativity and versatility. Throughout the show the CJV150-75 will be producing stunning packaging printed on transparent media with silver ink and cut/creased in one integrated process.
