Digital printing not only means fast and customizable solutions, but also high profitability from entry to industrial segment. Visitors at the Heimtextil Frankfurt, PSI and Viscom 2019 had the opportunity to experience this transformation with advanced printing solutions at Mimaki booth.
Mimaki, made a quick start in 2019. Mimaki Europe participated in the home textiles and contract products fair Heimtextil Frankfurt 2019, which took place on 8-11 January, with a concept that brought design and technology together. Mimaki also participated in the PSI and Viscom 2019 organized in Düsseldorf on 8-10 January and presented promotional, advertising and industrial printing solutions.
Worked with more than 10 designers for Heimtextil Frankfurt
Contract textiles and products in home textiles and commercial areas are becoming the most important applications of digital printing. Mimaki brought together the technical improvements in printing with the power of design, and collaborated with more than 10 inspiring designers worldwide for Heimtextil. With this collaboration, under the theme of ‘Unification of Innovation and Design’, the company highlighted the power and profitability of digital printing for all elements of art, interior design and fashion. Among the artists Mimaki Europe collaborated with were Sigrid Calon and Claire Vos. Anousjka Röben designed special shoes, while the creative studio Deux d’Amsterdam exhibited a unique kimono. All the elements of the upholstery were printed on Mimaki machines, including the works, chairs and cushions displayed under the ‘Dressing Room’ theme. Arjen Benningi adorned the booth walls with photos. With these works, Mimaki turned their booth into a trendy area and attracted the attention of the visitors during the fair.
Mimaki has digital printing solutions for all segments from entry to industrial level, and is expanding the application area of their users with their rich and unique inks. Heimtextil visitors had the chance to study Mimaki’s print solutions in three separate areas such as interior design, fashion and art. With the UCJV150-160 inkjet printer in the art section, significant advantages are achieved in the production of wallpaper. The ultra-efficient TS55-1800 sublimation transfer inkjet printer is used in both interior design and fashion, and has focused on upholstery during the exhibition. The Tx300P-1800B entry-level direct-to-textile system proved its power to print high-quality stretchable fabrics for fashion.
