With a reputation (and matching product range) for excelling at manufacturing cutting plotters, Mimaki has added a new line to their portfolio in the form of two competitively priced, wide format models. Mimaki; a pioneer in cutting plotters designed for sign making and graphic professionals, has always come up with new solutions to meet the various needs in the market and with today's economic pressures, cost savings to remain competitive come to the fore.
Both Mimaki's 1,070mm CG-100SRII and 1,370mm CG-130SRII cutters feature new functionalities for high cutting quality that should satisfy even the most demanding of professional users at an affordable price. Benefiting from Hybrid's two year, on site warranty, they make for a very attractive entry into wide format cutting.
Nowadays, cutting plotters are used in a broader range of industries than simply sign making. Cutting pre-printed transfer media for heat transfer of fashion designs to apparel, and cutting decals and stickers in combination with inkjet printers are two such popular new markets. The Mimaki CG-SRII Series flies through these processes with its high-speed continuous registration mark detection function for precise contour cutting of nested images.
Alongside this, Mimaki's unique half-cut function cuts right through the backing sheet, leaving only a few connecting points, which hold the image in place. When finished, the waste material can be easily detached, delivering either vinyl decals on a contour cut backing sheet, or in the case of transfer printing, a shaped image or logo that is very easy to position on the garment under the heat press.
Even at an affordable price, the CG-SRII series does not compromise on cutting quality. The machine is equipped with Mimaki's new RSC (Real time Stroke Control) function and Over-Cut feature. The RSC function detects cutting strokes during cutting and adjusts the strength of the strokes, thus maintaining constant cutting pressure and the Over-Cut function overlaps start and end point thus eliminating uncut portions of the media.
Mimaki include their FineCut 7 plug-in cutting software for CorelDRAW and Adobe Illustrator as well as SimpleCut; an easy-to-use, standalone cutting package that enables customers to be up and running with their new cutter almost immediately.
Distributed exclusively in the UK & Ireland by Hybrid Services Ltd, their National Sales Manager, John de la Roche introduces the new range; "Together with our award-winning and highly acclaimed Mimaki JV33 printer, the new CG-SRII series offers an affordable print & cut solution for short run on-demand production of fashionable design in apparel and stickers. We continue to offer heavily subsidised print and cut packages to allow our customers to take full advantage of the new technology, but of course the cutters are available on their own, should you already have a printer or simply want to cut coloured vinyl."
Available now for delivery through Hybrid's authorised reseller network, the Mimaki CG-SRII Series of cutting plotters can also be found on their website at www.hybridservices.co.uk
