Insight choose a Mimaki JFX200 UV LED printer


Insight, in Bristol, recently bought a Mimaki JFX200 UV LED flatbed printer from i-Sub Digital. Insight says it selected the printer because it “outperforms everything else in its price range”.


Insight’s innovation director, Kevin David- son, said: “Insight is best known for creat- ing high quality, speciality bespoke projects, but we were still outsourcing some of our work. We needed to bring more of our print- ing in-house and we wanted to be able to print to a much broader range of substrates. We also wanted augmented quality control and a more streamlined production turn- around.


“Investing in a new printer gave us more control of the whole process. We did some research and spoke to some people and it quickly became obvious that the Mimaki JFX200 was the perfect solution.”


The JFX200 flatbed printer is able to print on a vast number of substrates such as 8′ x 4′ rigid boards up to a thickness of 50mm, at up to 1200 dpi, with quality further aug- mented through variable dot printing down to a four picolitre drop size. And it does all this at a speed of up to 25 square metres an hour.


As well as the primary CMYK ink set, the Mimaki JFX200 ink options include white ink, clear ink, a primer, varnish, and a choice of hard, flexible and fully flexible inks for thermo forming applications. Thanks to its cool, long-life LED lamps, operators can print to more substrates, including thin and heat sensitive materials.


Kevin said: “Now the Mimaki fits right in with our production schedules. We can print and

prototype a project to make sure the cus- tomer is happy before production goes ahead. It provides great scope for special effects, for example layers of varnish help create an embossed feel. We can take the project straight from the Mimaki to our Zünd digital cutter. The inks are cured straight away so there are no problems with crack- ing and chipping; the job’s just printed, cut and finished.


“We bought the Mimaki from the team at i- Sub, and they were great. Emma Plant gave us a detailed demonstration and answered all of our questions with informed insight.”


Insight was officially launched in 2010 after Kevin Davidson and co-founder Tom Simp- son completed two years of careful plan- ning. They created a team-focused, customer-centric, full service print and branding provider. Their team services busi- ness and retail environments, working closely with design companies or directly with brands on a broad range of projects, in- cluding the whole branding/re-branding process from prototype to finished printed product.

Electronics For Imaging, Inc. recently in- stalled the EFI™ VUTEk® GS3250LX Pro LED inkjet printer at Minprint, in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Minprint bought the 3.2- metre hybrid roll/flatbed printer to keep up with the growing demand for large-format applications. The ability to produce high- quality output at production speeds was a deciding factor in choosing EFI, says the company.


"The EFI VUTEk GS3250LX represents best-in-class machinery to meet the de- mands of an expanding market. We have seen an increase in customer demand


for large format products, such as signage, vehicle wraps, customised wall art and exhibition materials. The speed of this printer enables us to print more economically and meet the customer requirements quickly and effectively," says Minprint's managing director, Jamie McMinnis.

The new VUTEk printer will allow Minprint to develop the point of sale and printed in- terior decor markets. "This printer offered us the quality, versatility, efficiency and build quality we required," says Jamie.


Minprint uses an EFI Fiery® proServer dig- ital front end (DFE) with its printer, and cited EFI's DFE and RIP expertise, along with its global support and experience in the LED production printing, as reasons for selecting the EFI printer.
