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.
“Quality is everything for us,” Tate says. “It’s what our clients expect from us and we simply have to deliver. That’s why we don’t rush into new technologies – we have to be sure that it will deliver the best results for our clients, in the turnaround times they need and at a price that represents real value for them – particular as they are ‘on-selling’ our service to their clients.
“Mimaki printers produce as close to offset quality as I’ve ever seen on an inkjet machine, and our customers were immediately delighted with the samples we showed them,” Tate says. “Since then, that quality together with the broad range of products we have been able to offer – which to date has included everything from sign and display, to POP and posters up to A1 in size, polypropylene diary covers and even short runs of ganged-up business cards – has seen this division of our business grow exponentially.”
Printing on heat-sensitive materials without deformation. Finding the robust and practical printers with ease of maintenance.
Since Mimaki products are made in Japan, necessary parts are delivered quickly. To print on heat-sensitive materials, the company replaced the printer with the new one that uses UV-LED ink curing system instead of conventional metal-halide lamp system.
Achieving effective production for large-lot print orders.
The company installs the large flatbed inkjet printers, JFX-1615 plus and JFX200-2513, to achieve efficient printing for large-lot orders. Further, the unique jig plate also enhances the efficient printing.
To expand our business into new fields, we must install products that are made with reliable technologies and supported by secure technical service to meet large-volume orders in short delivery times.
Mimaki products satisfies various customer demands and enables the in-house manufacturing of various products. In addition, the increased productivity brought by these products allows us to fulfill large-volume orders in short delivery times. The company is planning to increase its investment in facilities and equipment.
