Exclusive UK and Irish Mimaki distributor is to bring its broadest ever range of technology to Sign & Digital UK as it returns once again to the exhibition at Birmingham’s NEC from 24th to 26th April 2018. With a large stand situated at the entrance to Hall 18, Hybrid will also be supporting a significant number of its specialist resellers, ensuring a considerable Mimaki presence at the show.
For the first time, Hybrid will be showing the entire range of Mimaki’s UCJV Series LED UV printer/cutters, with both the UCJV300 and UCJV150 on display together at a UK exhibition. “The new Mimaki UCJV Series brings revolutionary technology to the sign and graphics market, using the very latest LED UV cure inks and offering an unparalleled range of applications from the one machine, making them already very popular with sign makers, print providers and graphics houses,” confirms Hybrid’s National Sales Manager, John de la Roche. “We’re looking forward to the response from visitors to Sign & Digital UK and for many, it’ll be the first machine they see on entering the halls.”
Mimaki’s key solvent printers and printer/cutters will also play a starring role with a number of innovative and popular systems on display. “We’ll have plenty to talk about with sign makers and graphics professionals,” continues de la Roche, “Solutions such as Mimaki’s orange solvent ink, Mimaki’s huge range of vinyl printing hardware and even our unique die-cutting technology make a real difference to users the world over, hence our focus on this significant area at the show.”
In addition to its main stand, Hybrid is very excited to also be running the Textile Printing Live Demo feature that sits adjacent to its stand at the front of Hall 18. “We’ll be inviting visitors to try their hand at creating printed textile products that they can personalise and take home,” states Hybrid’s Textile Product Manager, Brett Platt. “Getting up close for even just a few minutes can help those new to the technology appreciate the ease with which textiles can be decorated and attractive products added to their portfolio.”
The Textile Printing Live Demo will showcase a variety of inspiring applications – from fashion, sportswear and apparel, to retail, lightboxes, promotional products and even flooring. “This is a great opportunity for visitors to take home not only a textile product they’ve produced themselves, but also some inspiring ideas for their business,” says Platt.
“As an annual event that’s on everyone in the industry’s calendar, Sign & Digital UK gives us a very strong platform with which to present the latest Mimaki technology to the print and creative industries,” says Hybrid’s National Sales Manager, John de la Roche. “Of course, it’s also an ideal opportunity to meet with existing and prospective Hybrid customers and discuss Mimaki’s newest offerings over a coffee!”
“As well as Mimaki’s new UCJV Series, a selection of hugely popular solvent printers and printer cutters and a whole raft of textile kit, we’ll also be presenting Mimaki’s cutting edge UV printers, including the multi-award winning JFX200 8’ x 4’ flatbed, the impressive 3.2m roll to roll UJV55-320 and a selection of our sector-defining smaller format flatbeds from the UJF range,” concludes de la Roche. “With this line-up, we’re confident visitors to Sign & Digital UK will be inspired by Mimaki’s broad range of applications, innovative technology and business opportunities and very much look forward to welcoming them to Hybrid’s stand.”
