Hybrid Services, the exclusive distributor of Mimaki print technology in the UK and Ireland, has revealed that it will demonstrate the new Mimaki JFX200-2513EX flatbed LED UV printer for the first time in public on its stand at The Print Show 2019.

Regular exhibitor Hybrid Services will be based on Stand E10 in the heart of Hall 9 this September as it seeks to reach out to visitors from all backgrounds and demonstrate how Mimaki technology can help them access new markets.

The main attraction on the Hybrid Services stand will be the JFX200-2513EX, which features a new printhead configuration that manufacturer Mimaki says will double output speeds when printing with white ink in all print modes. In addition, a new draft mode will help users to achieve a 280% increase in speed, resulting in a maximum speed of 35sq m/hr.

Brett Newman, chief operations manager at Hybrid Services, says: “Higher print speeds take the pressure off time-sensitive jobs and help our customers reduce lead times. With the majority of existing JFX200 printers being commissioned with white ink, the new ‘EX’ model will deliver a powerful solution that will make a difference right at the heart of the graphics printing industry.

“Mimaki’s JFX200 range has always offered print providers the perfect flatbed printing solution, hence its enduring popularity in the UK and Ireland. Now, with the launch of the new JFX200-2513EX, Mimaki has made substantial speed improvements, as well as adding some highly useful functionality.”

Newman adds: “The timing is perfect for us to present this important addition to our direct-to-substrate line-up. With the broader adoption of flatbed printers within the commercial printing sector, The Print Show offers us the ideal opportunity to introduce the new printer and we look forward to demonstrating its impressive speed and creative capabilities during the exhibition.”

Alongside the new JFX200-2513EX, Hybrid Services will also be presenting the UCJV Series LED UV printer/cutters, which have proved a major hit with the market since first being shown in the UK at The Print Show 2017.

Visitors to the Hybrid Services stand will be able to see the Mimaki CJV150 wide-format solvent printer/cutter in action. Featuring orange, white and light black inks that add both gamut and detail to a standard four- or six-colour inkset, the machine is billed as being a “highly versatile solution” for print professionals looking for a creative and productive edge

In addition, Hybrid Services will be showing off the Mimaki UJF-MkII direct to object printers and demonstrating how these machines can produce creative and highly customisable prints onto many items.

“Whether it’s through increased productivity, enhanced creativity or effortless operation, we’re looking forward to helping print businesses deliver revenue generating, high quality print,” Newman says.
