The new EFI Reggiani HYPER targets the industrial high-speed segment of the multi-pass textile printing sector. Not only is it the fastest multi-pass printer that EFI Reggiani has ever developed, but the fastest of its kind in the market, offering extraordinary printing quality with unmatched productivity.
 
The HYPER’s superfast carriage with 72 printheads can print two passes with production quality at speeds up to 13 metres per minute for a 1.5-metre-wide roll, or up to 10 metres per minute for a 3-metre-wide roll. On a 3.4-metre Reggiani HYPER printer, users can print a pair of 1.5-metre-wide rolls in parallel, delivering a total throughput of up to 20 metres per minute, which is comparable to some single-pass printers currently in the market.
 
The printer is powered by EFI Reggiani genuine inks, with high-quality formulas developed to ensure the best performance in terms of runnability and longer printhead life while producing astonishing colour depth and brightness, as well as excellent fastness properties.

Mr. Kazuaki Ikeda, President of Mimaki Engineering commented, “I’d like to extend my thanks to everyone who joined us during this exciting new virtual event. During the pandemic, carrying on innovating has been central to Mimaki’s objectives, with eight new products having been released since October, and even more scheduled to come out over the course of this year. I hope that we can soon all meet at in-person events, once it’s safe to do so, but until then I’m excited to see the results of the continued collaboration and innovation of print industry that we saw in our Innovation Days event.”

Mimaki: 100 Percent Success in a Post Pandemic World

After a turbulent year, it seems strange to be thinking about ‘after the pandemic’, but with millions of vaccinations underway, the light at the end of the tunnel is visible. As we turn the corner, choosing technology partners that understand how to proactively respond to changing market needs and support the evolving requirements of print businesses and end customers will be vital. The printers in Mimaki’s ‘100 series’ portfolio, which consists of the high quality, high productivity entry level roll-to-roll inkjet printers the UJV100-160 UV and the JV100-160 solvent, and the high performance textile printer, the TS100-1600, are a perfect reflection of the way technology requirements are adapting in line with the industry as we look to the future. To demonstrate this, we have identified three post-pandemic technology touchpoints that will help print businesses target success amid uncertainty.

To demonstrate this, we have identified three post-pandemic technology touchpoints that will help print businesses target success amid uncertainty.

  • Productivity

The pandemic has served as a major catalyst for existing trends, and our growing appetite for everything on-demand has been given a huge COVID-related boost. For printers, a digital solution that offers premium productivity, quality and efficiency at an entry-level price point is sure to be an invaluable investment to meet evolving ‘on-demand demands’. Adding a digital production element to your business doesn’t need to be daunting, complicated or overpriced – the Mimaki ‘100 series’ truly lives up to the tagline ‘Expert Printing Made Easy’, offering an incredibly intuitive user experience for streamlined, ultra-efficient printing, high-quality output, and cost-effective implementation. The powerful and productive new textile printer in the ‘100 series’, the TS100-1600, is a shining example of equipment developed with the future of the market in mind – the textile industry is fast-paced and constantly innovating, and the printer you invest in needs to keep up with your creativity.

  • Diversity

2021 is set to be a period of transition. While that will mean navigating uncertainty, the ‘glass half full’ approach is to view the year ahead in terms of opportunities such as expanding your business, exploring alternative revenue streams, and taking the plunge into new markets. In the past, it may have felt as if the barriers to entry when it came to looking beyond your core business were too great. However, in a post-pandemic world, we need to break some of those barriers down and demonstrate that success with digital print is within reach if you invest in the right equipment. With the ‘100 series’ portfolio, Mimaki is acknowledging what print service providers need from their technology partners – the UJV100-160 and the JV100-160 are suitable for a wide range of applications that will allow you to easily and affordably diversify your offering, and with the TS100-1600 textile printer, it has never been easier to target growth in the thriving textile sector, even in challenging times.

  • Affordability

Affordability is one of the most significant barriers to entry into new markets. 2020 was a year of unprecedented economic challenges, so it’s more important than ever to be thinking about gaining a competitive edge, and the printers in the ‘100 series’ from Mimaki have been specifically formulated to help you ramp up productivity while keeping running costs low. Whether you want to take your first foray into digital print production, expand the services you offer or simply grow your customer base, cost can be a major sticking point, which is why supporting customers is Mimaki’s number one priority, designing the ‘100 series’ around your needs and continuing to listen to how those needs are developing. Making an investment in the JV100-160 in order to move into outdoor graphics; meeting demand for faster turnaround times by adding the instantly curable UJV100-160 to your production setup; or taking a leap into new revenue streams with the TS100-160 – it’s all ‘100’ percent accessible.

Its commitment to using state-of-theart pre-press, press and bindery equipment has ensured the company's position as a leader in the print manufacturing industry.
In addition to the 380V-s, PCMC continues to develop new technologies and applications for a variety of print markets.

Textilien effizienter und hochwertiger bedrucken mit Transjet Drive

Sappi lanciert ein für Glue-Belt-Drucker optimiertes Sublimationspapier
Das schnelle Individualisieren und Personalisieren von Mode- und Heimtextilien auf polyesterbeschichteten Materialien durch Sublimationsdruck wird am Markt stark nachgefragt. Sappi erweitert deshalb sein Portfolio an Sublimationspapieren: Mit der seidig glatten Unterseite ermöglicht die Produktinnovation Transjet Drive einen besseren Durchlauf auf industriellen Digitaldruckmaschinen mit einem Glue-Belt-System. Diese reibungslose Bedruckung erhöht die Produktivität. Zudem bietet Transjet Drive durch seine geringe Grammatur Flächengewichtsvorteile.

Sappi erweitert deshalb sein Portfolio an Sublimationspapieren: Mit der seidig glatten Unterseite ermöglicht die Produktinnovation Transjet Drive einen besseren Durchlauf auf industriellen Digitaldruckmaschinen mit einem Glue-Belt-System. Diese reibungslose Bedruckung erhöht die Produktivität. Zudem bietet Transjet Drive durch seine geringe Grammatur Flächengewichtsvorteile.

Das neue Sublimationspapier Transjet Drive ist explizit auf Glue-Belt-Drucker zugeschnitten, eignet sich jedoch ebenso für Hochgeschwindigkeitsdrucker ohne Druckband. Durch seine speziell behandelte Unterseite haftet es auf dem Druckband ohne zu verrutschen und kann zügig durchlaufen. Die glatte Unterseite gewährleistet außerdem, dass das Papier nicht am Druckband festklebt und rückstandsfrei wieder vom Druckband abgleitet. Diese besonderen Eigenschaften schonen das Druckband und ersparen Arbeitsschritte wie Reinigung oder Korrekturen während der Produktion. Mit einer Grammatur von 45 und 55 g/m2 bietet Transjet Drive außerdem Flächengewichtsvorteile. Auch deshalb ist dieses neue Produkt für die Kunden attraktiv: Sie erhalten mit jeder Tonne Transjet Drive mehr bedruckbare Papierfläche im Vergleich zu schwereren Grammaturen.

Auf der Oberfläche ist das Papier speziell beschichtet, wodurch die Farbe schnell trocknet und das Endergebnis auf den Textilien sehr farbstark erscheint. Dank der schnellen Trocknung können die Bahnen nach der Bedruckung sofort wieder aufgerollt werden. Aufgrund dieser Eigenschaften wird Transjet Drive insbesondere bei Mode- und Heimtextilien, wie Schals, Bettwäsche und Gardinen, angewendet. Die Variante mit 55 g/m² eignet sich darüber hinaus für Soft Signage.
