GPT announces major success with new Mimaki UJV-160 UV-curable printer

Graphic Printing Technologies Limited (GPT) announces the first UK sale of the new Mimaki UJV-160 UV-Curable roll & flat sheet printer. Not only the first, but the first five! Pure Leisure Marketing was the first of five companies to have purchased the new printer (and optional CF-1218TD/RC flatbed cutter) from GPT this year.

Stuart Cole, Managing Director of GPT Ltd, says, "This product has really struck a chord with our customers. We are offering the printer together with the Mimaki flat bed cutting table at a price that companies can see real value in. We have targeted the printer and cutter bundle to companies that we know will really benefit from the speed, quality, reliability and flexibility that the UJV160 offers."

Gary Ackers at Pure Leisure comments, "We are absolutely delighted with the UJV. It is a very reliable printer that has coped with everything we have thrown at it. It allows us to enhance our offering to customers and makes us a more complete and responsive supplier. We have also been delighted with our relationship with GPT. They have given us nothing but excellent advice and guidance and their support through installation and our early operation has been of a very high standard.

Peter Mitchell at Mimaki UK Distributor Hybrid comments "We have been really impressed with how GPT has taken on this product and identified a very real need in the marketplace. They have had some really good early success with this project and we put this down to the commitment, knowledge and understanding of their customers' needs and requirements."

The UJV-160 uses Mimaki's new flexible UV LED curable ink set, which employs a formula to enable stretching by up to 200%. This results in no cracking during the printing process, even when the surface is bent or curved. The technology makes the UJV-160 ideal for printing onto a diverse range of both rigid and flexible substrates, typically Foamex, Foam core, Corex, DieBond, cardboard, flexible PVC substrates even to the rigours used for vehicle wrapping, shutters, banners and other similar applications.

The Mimaki UJV is available immediately from GPT and has a price of £39,995. The optional CF-1218TD/RC flatbed cutter is available at a discounted bundle price of sub £20,000. For further information contact GPT on tel: 01753 727128 or visit www.g-p-t.co.uk
