Mimaki Deutschland GmbH, a subsidiary of Mimaki Europe, recently announced that it will endorse green innovation in packaging at FachPack 2019 (Nuremberg, Germany, 24-26 September 2019). Addressing the exhibition’s key theme, ‘Environmentally friendly packaging’, the company – together with its local dealer Ernst Mendel GmbH – will exhibit show-stopping technologies and an inspiring array of applications to emphasise how packaging print service providers and converters can use Mimaki solutions to make more sustainable choices.
A diverse range of cost-effective hardware and software solutions together with eye-catching applications, including layer printing with white and clear inks, added-value silver ink effects and 2.5D-textured print, will be on display on the Mimaki booth (Hall 8, Stand 8-312). The company will also highlight how a streamlined production workflow – from design software to digital printers and cutting systems – can empower greener processes for packaging manufacturing.
Mimaki systems have many eco-friendly credentials, including:
– All Mimaki UV printers are equipped with LED lamps which cure wet ink instantly with UV irradiation, rendering heating unnecessary and saving energy.
– UV printing enables printing direct onto different types of substrates, giving users the choice to use more sustainable materials.
– Digital is an on-demand solution for producing packaging and other applications, eliminating the waste caused by over-production.
– Mimaki UV inks are GREENGUARD Gold* certified. The inks have met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air, and are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
A further highlight on the Mimaki stand will be the UJF-7151plus direct-to-object UV flatbed printer. Achieving flawless print quality on a wide range of substrates, this printer enables short-run packaging applications with reduced waste and minimised use of space, making more sustainable manufacturing options more accessible. Additionally, the UJF-7151plus uses longer-life UV LEDs, consuming less energy than printers using conventional UV lamps.
