They will be able to view a print job from start to finish. Mimaki’s product specialists will be operating the machines exhibited on the stand. Mimaki’s CJV150 inkjet printer will be used for printing and cutting of images for application to T-shirts using POLI-TAPE ULTIMATE PRINT SOFT 4030 for heat transfer. Additional solvent printers, cutting machines and a UJF-7151 plus UV flatbed machine will also be available to visitors to participate in this unique approach to the trade show experience.

“This interactive concept is designed to demonstrate the ease of use and suitability for day-to-day applications of our products”, explains Uwe Niklas, General Manager Sales at Mimaki Germany. “Being able to experience print production with all five senses will show digital printing in a whole new light.”
