Yousei Co., Ltd. (Osaka City, Osaka) : UCJV300-160Mimaki user stories
Desire to effectively utilize the loss time in processing acrylic items with UV flatbed printers. Idle-time of laser beam machines needs to be reduced as well.
Proposal of novelty production using UCJV300 and transparent attachment films. Staggered production process featuring unmanned night-time film printing phase fully utilizing the potential of roll-based printers and day-time processing boosted the productivity by 400%. Simultaneous use of conventional UV printers reduced the laser beam machine idle-time to almost zero.

Since our existing UV printer for creating soft packaging samples causes color unevenness, we want to make a replacement purchase. Printing quality should be as high as that of gravure printing in mass production.
UCJV300-75 has cleared our requirements such as speed, color reproduction, supported media, and availability. Although we introduced a Mimaki product for the first time, we were able to complete smooth switch to the printer with no trouble.

We want to efficiently print "flavor cards"* that would not worth the cost when using screen printing or UV flatbed machines. * Thin film material and small lot
Introduction of roll-type UCJV300-160 allows us to respond to soft material printing. When compared to addition of JFX200, we could reduce installation space and introduction cost, so introduced UCJV300-107 as the second machine. By using this printer and the flatbed JFX200 differently depending on the material, productivity has increased across the company.

Subcontracting the production of small decals, seals and business proposal dummies in minor quantities is often comparatively expensive and inefficient. Looking for small cutting plotters to process such knickknacks.
Major cost reduction on minor lot production with CFL-605RT. Extremely handy and easy to use. Internal production facilitates the perception of progress from production to shipment, greatly reducing in-corporate stress. Additionally, CFL handles the troublesome hand-crafting of planning samples, freeing the marketing personnel from the task and enhancing business efficiency not to mention the proposing power.

We would like to deal with a small-lot production of goods. Moreover, we also would like to produce packages associated with them in-house.
Adoption of UJF-6042 and CFL-605RT has enabled us to in-house production. CFL-605RT is utilized not only for packages production but also for the manufacturing of variant seals. Our rate of acceptance of orders has increased sharply by making and submitting one sample.

When a roll-type small cutting plotter was used, media setting was difficult and thus preparation was time-consuming. We also wanted to increase the cutting accuracy.
CFL-605RT has higher accuracy and easier setting than the roll-type counterpart, making the downtime very short. Since the cutting speed is also fast, time loss and media loss are significantly reduced. The sense of “quick creation and show” becomes effective in up-selling during proposal phase.
