"Mimaki Simplifies Small-Lot Digital Packaging Production"

Posted on August 06, 2016

Mimaki, recently announced a joint development with Esko to simplify the digital packaging production for companies that produce packaging samples and mock-ups, as well as small packing runs and personalised packaged goods. The Original Goods Package System (OGPS) from Mimaki is comprised of three components:
• ArtiosCAD Designer Solution (ArtiosCAD DS), a subset of Esko’s industry-leading ArtiosCAD, the world’s most widely used package design CAD software, and including 400 easy-to-use templates as well as tools for original package creation;
• Mimaki UJF-6042, an LED UV inkjet flatbed printer with maximum printing dimensions of 610 x 420 mm. It can be used to print on a product, as well as to print product packaging.
• Mimaki CFL-605RT cutting plotter supporting on-demand production with multiple functions, including cutting and creasing of packaging material and cutting of package cushioning.
To create a package design, the user simply selects one of the 400 professionally-designed templates included with ArtiosCAD DS, enters the inside package dimensions and thickness of the media to be used. More detailed parameters as well as shapes and sizes of flaps can also be specified. The system then creates a package design file that can be imported into Adobe® Illustrator® to add graphics . Users can also use specialised tools to create their own custom designs and include them in the final design. The system offers a total solution not only for the design and creation of product packaging and cushioning but also for printing directly onto a product. Users that don't need the predesigned templates available in the ArtiosCAD DS software, can create custom designs with the guide function.
Once a design is final, it can be printed in exceptional quality on the UJF-6042 in full colour and if [...] Read More
