MIMAKI (THAILAND) CO., LTD.

Case Study

Challenges
Improvements
We would like to introduce an inkjet printer and a cutting plotter to realize full digitalization of sticker and label production.
Mimaki's printers are quite convenient to use. Particularly, UCJV300-75 is excellent in cost performance compared to other companies' products. Our company has boosted its business performance as a rare digital specialist in the sticker and label industry, and has a plan to establish its 3rd factory in the near future. We also expect to enhance our online sales and develop new products following the face stickers.

Improvements
Replacement was urgently required for the sublimation transfer printer JV4-180 upon termination of the maintenance/support term for the product.
High-speed printing capability accomplishing a maximum production speed of 115 sqm per hour enhanced productivity while declining the running cost. Additional fluorescent ink compatibility broadened the range of options offered to our customers.

Improvements
We wanted to introduce to our studio a textile printer that allows to express envisioned ideas more easily than honzome-dyeing, silk screen and digital textile printing.
With the user-friendly sublimation transfer, we gained the ability to visualize free imaginations directly on textiles, being free from design limitations. We can print it on site and immediately start sewing, which is convenient for workshop and well-received by beginners.

Challenges
Improvements
We have operated full-color digital printing, mainly of sublimation transfer. However, as it can print only on polyester, we have been unable to respond to customers' requests for print on natural materials.
With the sublimation transfer printer that allows printing only on polyester, we used to fail to receive orders for print on natural materials, which is now possible. Supporting wider range of materials allowed us to receive order of new products.

Seeking for an edge as a textile retail shop
We succeeded in enhancing our ability to respond to diversified customers' needs by small-lot production of original textiles with shorter delivery time by inkjet printing. For bulk orders as well, producing a small quantity of samples allows us to drive business negotiations smoothly, which raised the order ratio.

Improvements
Couldn't find any satisfactory UV printer products capable of handling solvent-based prints at the product price, processing speed and running cost we required. We were also looking for products compatible with the recently increasing synthetic and wallpaper printing work.
UCJV300-160 cleared all problems. With a high output speed and requiring no drying time, the printer can handle quick turn-arounds speedily. Stable operation of the product allows unmanned night-shifts. With enhanced processing capability, we aim to acquire more things to do.

Desire to effectively utilize the loss time in processing acrylic items with UV flatbed printers. Idle-time of laser beam machines needs to be reduced as well.
Proposal of novelty production using UCJV300 and transparent attachment films. Staggered production process featuring unmanned night-time film printing phase fully utilizing the potential of roll-based printers and day-time processing boosted the productivity by 400%. Simultaneous use of conventional UV printers reduced the laser beam machine idle-time to almost zero.

Since our existing UV printer for creating soft packaging samples causes color unevenness, we want to make a replacement purchase. Printing quality should be as high as that of gravure printing in mass production.
UCJV300-75 has cleared our requirements such as speed, color reproduction, supported media, and availability. Although we introduced a Mimaki product for the first time, we were able to complete smooth switch to the printer with no trouble.

We want to efficiently print "flavor cards"* that would not worth the cost when using screen printing or UV flatbed machines. * Thin film material and small lot
Introduction of roll-type UCJV300-160 allows us to respond to soft material printing. When compared to addition of JFX200, we could reduce installation space and introduction cost, so introduced UCJV300-107 as the second machine. By using this printer and the flatbed JFX200 differently depending on the material, productivity has increased across the company.

Improvements
We hope to realize digitalization so we can respond to a wider range of needs utilizing the hand textile printing techniques.
As the device does not need plates, it can handle small-lot production of diversified products, which realized shorter production time. Unlimited number of printed colors widened the scope of design possibilities.
