Mimaki launches new printer/cutter

Mimaki CJV300 print and cut machineMimaki recently launched the CJV300 series, their new print and cut flagship that is the first of a series of unveilings as it exhibits at shows throughout the autumn. The CJV300 had its European premiere at Viscom Paris 2014 in September on the stand with other Mimaki products.

The CJV300 is an integrated print and cut machine, available in 1.3 and 1.6m widths, to give simultaneous printing and cutting operations with 'best-in-class' print speeds of up to 105.9m² per hour. Its two newly developed staggered print-heads deliver high-resolution printing whilst continuous registration mark detection enables the uninterrupted cutting of an entire roll of media. The registration marks produced on the CJV300 are zero-margin, reducing costly media consumption.

"The high speed of the new Mimaki CJV300 is going to set a precedent for integrated printer/cutters," says John de la Roche, national sales manager – sign & graphics for Mimaki's UK and Irish distributor, Hybrid Services. "It's an exciting time for Mimaki customers and the CJV300 will give the ultimate print and cut solution for producing items such as stickers and labels."

Coinciding with the launch of the CJV300 comes news of the availability of the SS21 silver ink. Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA for Mimaki Europe said: "We are especially excited to be offering a new silver ink along with a brand-new printer to bring high value-added printing to manufacturers in the sticker, labelling, and packaging print industries. This complements the SS21 Orange and Light Black inks introduced earlier this year and makes it possible for users to create metallic images in no less than 648 different colours with a silver underlay."

The SS21 silver ink brightness is 1.67 times greater than that of conventional silver inks, for 'stunning' mirror effect results. Compatible with all printers using SS21 inks, the new solvent silver ink will give print companies the opportunity to 'greatly add value to their output and print dazzling finishes'.

The ‘bonding people’ fix gap in the market with new tape

Stairs covered in Duraline floor markingInnova Solutions, known for creating specialist adhesives, have developed a range of 'NovaTough DuraLine Anti Slip' floor marking tapes. Due to their over-laminated, embossed clear layer, the tapes give 'more protection to the printed material than any other printed floor tape'. Designed for ramps, steps, staircases, platforms, warehouses, corridors and walkways in both manufacturing and commercial environments, the tapes are proven to reduce injuries and claims. All the DuraLine range is BGR classified to R11 for slip resistance for use as a floor graphic.

Glenn Dunleavey, Managing Director of Innova Solutions said: "DuraLine was developed in response to customer demand for a very high quality product with excellent aesthetics and durability that had internationally recognized safety accreditations. We think the robust construction of the DuraLine range, coupled with the excellent print quality really fits the bill. So far, we have had a great response."

The new line of products also includes the NovaGlow DuraLine tape that complements their 'glow in the dark' safety range. Its high glow photoluminescent technology 'facilitates safe and effective egress' even under 'lights-out' or 'smoke filled' emergency conditions. Available in either plain or printed format, NovaGlow DuraLine shares the same R11 classified laminate as NovaTough but also boasts PSPA Class B photoluminescent certification.

Dunleavey said: "NovaGlow DuraLine Tape is the only floor marking tape on the market to have recognised accreditations for both photoluminescence and anti-slip properties making it an obvious choice if you need a tape that is tough, hard wearing and highly visible."

Adding 'vibrancy' to signs and graphics

Graphtec polydrop 3D-doming on a motor bike tank. Graphtec-polydrop-3d-doming-system

Thanks to Graphtec GB you can add 'brilliant' three-dimensional special effects to signs and graphics using the PolyDrop 3D doming system supplied by them. Using this system with a Graphtec vinyl cutter also provides sign and graphics producers with a 'fast and cost-effective' route to the potentially lucrative print wear and promotional products sector. Here there is a huge demand for special effects and from which vital new revenue streams can be introduced, according to the company.

The PolyDrop doming system dispenses specially engineered polyurethane resins and hardeners to a wide range of substrates; such as acrylic, polycarbonate, aluminium, and aluminium composite materials used in mainstream sign making. As well as a vast range of fabrics and textiles used for soft signage applications like flags and banners and for customised work, sports and leisure wear and fashion accessories. The Text Drop feature of the system uses a thermo-adhesive film onto which an image is printed, cut out and then domed with a choice of resin, including a special glitter-effect option, with an industry-standard heat press used to speed up the doming process.

Polyurethane resins are extremely flexible in application and provide a high level of resistance to pollutants, abrasion and UV degradation. They are also completely safe to handle and apply and are available in a range of different grades to suit specific applications. The PolyDrop system is 'easy' to operate and requires no special training or user skills. It is supplied with a start-up kit that includes both manual and automatic feed functions, polyurethane doming resins and hardeners and a special liquid dispenser.
