CMYUK has announced that it will be attending The Print Show,  running between September 17-19th at the NEC in Birmingham.

Located directly opposite the entrance to Hall 17, the CMYUK stand (AO1) will feature the Canon Colorado M5W UVgel LED printer, JWEI JCUT 1625 digital cutting table, and Fiery Prep-it software.

 In addition to CMYUK product experts, specialists from Sheppex Asset Finance, who are well versed in capital investments for wide format print production, will be available to provide guidance on favourable financing options.

Canon M Series

CMYUK will be demonstrating the Canon Colorado M5W, from Canon’s new M-Series printer series, offering high productivity, unrivalled range of applications with amazing dimensional stability and no odour.  At 1.6m wide, this represents the 4th generation of the Canon Colorado underpinned by Canon’s own UV Gel technology. Launched in March last year, the M-series offers a modular, configurable upgrade platform that enables customers to add new features to their base models as and when required – all of which can be done in the field. For example, the M3 model with output speeds of 111 sq. m per hour can be upgraded to an M5 model that offers 159 sq. m per hour. Additional upgrades include white ink, FLXfinish+ for gloss and matt or a combination of the two in a single pass, double-sided printing, and a magnetic media kit.

JWEI JCUT digital cutting

The JWEI JCUT digital cutting tables offer accuracy, reliability, and an array of superior features at an investment level that has previously never been attainable. Available in three sizes – 1600mm x 2500mm, 2100mm x 3100mm, 3200mm x 3000mm, the largest sized table supports super-wide digital printed textile cutting production in both the mid-range and premium industrial printer markets.

Ambitious in its reach,  the JWEI JCUT has an unparalleled feature set that includes an automatic feeding conveyor, 1800kW liquid cooled router for powerful milling, Auto Tool Changer (ATC), Universal Cutting Tool (UCT), Kiss Cut Tool (KCT), Electric Oscillating Tool (EOT), Crease Wheel Tool (CWT), V-Cut Tool (VCT), and a modularised cutting head that accommodates up to 3 sets of tool combinations simultaneously. Speed performance from this table is formidable too,  running up to 1200mm per second, the equivalent of 75m per minute, with a maximum acceleration point of 1G.

Fiery Prep-it

Throughout the show, CMYUK will be demonstrating Fiery Prep-it software for the prep, layout, and automated production of print-for-cut jobs, heralding  a new era in pre-press efficiency and material savings. This package  saves hours of manual prepress time with fast and easy cut path and layout preparation.  Compared to manual methods, it cuts down on setup time by 90% and reduces material consumption by an average of 33%.

One of Prep-it’s most compelling features is its universal compatibility. It seamlessly connects to any RIP, printer, digital cutter, or router capable of processing PDF files. This interoperability bridges the gap between various equipment brands, allowing businesses to leverage their existing equipment to its maximum potential and significantly enhance production efficiency.

Sue Hayward, Commercial Director, CMYUK said,We are delighted to support this year's Print Show, the most significant and best-attended print industry event in the UK. Our participation underscores the event's theme of ‘Print-without-barriers’, a perfect reflection of the exceptional Canon Colorado M series, the positive disruption of the JWEI JCUT digital cutting tables, and the innovative benefits of the Fiery Prep-it software. We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to connect with long-standing friends and prospective customers at our  stand.”

Andrew Day, Large Format Graphics – Channel Manager – Canon UK said, “We’re excited to be supporting our Partner CMYUK at The Print Show this year and demonstrating our commitment to working with large format graphics producers to evolve their production and enable them to exploit new growth opportunities. With the new Colorado M-series, which has our UVgel technology at its core, we’re helping our customers to do just that by providing a fully modular printer platform capable of effortlessly handling high-value, white ink applications. The unique FLXfinish+ technology as well as the new white ink option will demonstrate the extensive range of applications it can print from bright and bold wallpapers to window graphics and high-impact front and back-lit signage. It’s truly amazing to have partners such as CYMUK, showcasing our technology at the biggest print trade event in the UK.”
