At a time when there's been industry wide price increases, in most cases put down to the weakness of the pound, it's nice to be able to report a "good news story" on the ink pricing front. Mimaki's exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland, Hybrid Services Ltd, recently announced that their award winning flexible UV ink has been reduced in price by a quarter.
This price reduction has made it substantially more competitive; against not only other UV machines but in comparison to some other manufacturers' solvent inks that continue to rise in price. As specified on the EDP award-winning Mimaki UJV-160 flatbed / roll-to-roll printer and as a standard option on the newly launched grand format flatbed machine (the Mimaki JFX-1631); the price reduction on the LF-200 ink set will benefit many users and makes for a sound argument for both machines.
Hybrid's National Sales Manager, John de la Roche told us; "To be able to slash 25% of the running costs out of an already competitive package is very satisfying for us and our customers. With its flexible properties and huge creative potential, the Mimaki LED UV ink is a pretty revolutionary product and as the opportunity has arisen to reduce its cost, we've jumped at it."
Mimaki's LF-200 ink is now just £90 per cartridge, making an ISO-400 print around 80p per square metre and is available from stock through Hybrid's authorised resellers.
