Challenges

Owner John Privitera says he initially wanted to replace one of the company’s eco-solvent machines with two of the same platform. But a must have was an increase in production output but not sacrificing print quality.
“I attended the ISA show in Orlando this year and the word on the floor was that this new UCJV300-160 was the must have. I couldn’t be happier with the decision to go with this machine. It gives us low power consumption with an economical ink cost. It produces prints with vibrant colours and the cutter is separate to the print head.”

Display Systems Australia started about 30 years ago.

Why Mimaki UCJV Series?

  • John Privitera says, “The UCJV300-160 runs at double the speed of the other machine we were running. Also, the amount of ink it doesn’t use is quite incredible.”
  • Anthony Crosetta, production manager at Display Systems Australia, runs the print room. He says, “We can’t fault the Mimaki printers. They are quick, reliable and the ink is beautiful.

LED UV Flexible cured inks is perfect for our needs.

Using the Mimaki printers, Display Systems Australia produces quality banners at speed. Pritivera says, “We can’t load them into frames quickly enough. We have banner stands printed up and we need extra people sometimes to put graphics into frames. Speed is not an issue.. “Because the LED UV ink sits on top of the media, you get a real texture to your print and our clients like the textured feel in the banner. We have no issues with adhesion and scratch resistance; we are not protecting it with a laminate.

Display Systems Australia says the new ink that Mimaki has placed into its printers, played a part in its decision to invest in Mimaki.  John Privitera says, “We wanted to get the flexible ink. It stretches and goes with the printed product.

John Privitera sees value for money in his Mimaki investment and intends to stick with the brand. He says, “Once you are able to introduce white you can match the colours. I am also thinking about buying a smaller one just for running banner stands.

“We are rapt with these Mimaki printers. The price point was perfect for a business like mine. For what was coming out of the Mimaki I couldn’t see why I would pay two or three times the money for a machine with similar capabilities. That didn’t make sense.”


Benefits of Print & Cut


The UCJV300 uses Raster Link 6 Plus software and a function called ID Cut. This places a barcode on the printed material which the cut function picks up and then uses to align the cutting head exactly in the right place on the sheet. With nested or multiple products, you can automate the whole process because the printer can read and position the cutting head with the information contained in the ID code. As it prints each image, the ID Cut function updates the printer as to where to cut the image.


Final Comments


John Privitera says, “The Mimaki printers are absolutely fantastic; fast and economical. We have found them way above our expectations. We are producing some beautiful prints and we are doing some nice work.
