edps Mimaki’s advances in print technology have been recognised by industry professionals, after it landed two coveted European Digital Press (EDP) Association Awards. The company won the Best Wide Format Textile Printer accolade for the Mimaki TS500-1800, while the Mimaki JV400LX Series was named the Best Environmental Printing Solution.

The EDP Association awarded the Mimaki TS500-1800 its prize because of the: “Breakthrough in price and performance for indirect dye sub printing with up to 250m long and a print speed of 150sqm/h.”

The Mimaki JV400LX Series also received high praise from the EDP Association: “With the new piezo head, the viscosity of the ink is higher, meaning less drying time. Combined with the white ink option and lower energy consumption, the Mimaki JV400LX is a worthy winner.” The JV400 product line achieves faster print speed and higher print quality without compromise. The JV400-130/160LX is a latex printer featuring newly developed environmentally friendly latex ink. The printer delivers maximized performance with Mimaki’s user-friendly RIP, RasterLink6, enabling three ink layers in one pass with white and color inks.

The EDP Association is a not-for-profit organisation that recognises the latest innovations in the digital print industry. The Association comprises publishers of leading European magazines devoted to digital printing and associated products. The publications cover 14 countries, with a readership exceeding one million graphic arts professionals.
