Mimaki USA, a global industry leader of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, announces a marketing program with Avery Dennison (NYSE:AVY), a global materials science and manufacturing company specializing in the design and manufacture of a wide variety of labeling and functional materials. With this collaboration, Mimaki’s UCJV Series printers, utilizing LUS-170 or LUS-200 inks, will now be added to the Avery Dennison Integrated Component System (ICS) Performance Guarantee.
The ICS Performance Guarantee combines Avery Dennison films with qualified printing components to form a system that offers compatibility and provides outstanding performance. Through joint developmental work between Avery Dennison and Mimaki USA, the UCJV Series printers, using either LUS ink sets, have withstood rigorous testing and met the stringent durability and physical performance specifications to achieve ICS Performance Guarantee status. Under this guarantee, Mimaki’s LUS-170 ink supports a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications, while the LUS-200 ink is ideal for curved surface applications like vehicle wraps and fleet graphics.
“We are pleased to add Mimaki’s UCJV Series printers with both LUS-170 and LUS-200 ink sets to our ICS Performance Guarantee portfolio,” said Paul Roba, OEM relationship manager of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions. “The addition of this platform provides our customers another premium printing solution for their commercial graphic needs, and expands the digital solutions available from Avery Dennison’s and Mimaki’s strong working relationship.”
Mimaki’s UCJV Series printers offer in-line cutting capabilities and feature layered print technology, such as four-layer and five-layer for transitional or double facing images. Utilizing flexible UV-LED inks that cure instantly, customers can quickly print and laminate or deliver the finished product without waiting for drying. With GREENGUARD Gold certified inks, the UCJV Series printers have met some of the world’s most comprehensive standards for low emissions of VOCs.
“Our UCJV Series printers provide a total workflow solution, so our print service providers can produce a variety of high-quality applications quickly and effectively,” said Volance Carlin, product manager at Mimaki USA. “Mimaki is excited to offer Avery Dennison’s ICS Performance Guarantee. Through this relationship, we believe we’re delivering the most innovative technology available on the market today.”
