UK university invests in Mimaki flatbed printer to support packaging design education

The Mimaki UJF-3042FX has already been used to produce first-year projects for students at Harper Adams University in the UK

UK university Harper Adams University has invested in a Mimaki UJF-3042FX printer to help undergraduates learn about packaging design.

The university was established in 1901 and is a specialist provider of higher education for the agricultural and rural sector. Delivering degree programs appropriate to the food industry means covering all aspects, including packaging.

The printer was needed in order to teach undergraduates about packaging design. With limited budget and space, the Mimaki UJF-3042FX was installed within a photography suite and positioned at desktop level to enable effective teaching and easy access.

The purchases was funded through a recent sponsorship from the Worshipful Company of Butchers. The Mimaki UJF-3042FX was purchased from CMYUK.

Lucy Catley of Harper Adams University commented: ‘CMYUK were brilliant right from the start, from support with the purchase through to installation and ongoing technical support. We had no experience in this area so relied completely on the knowledge and expertise of the CMYUK team. We were provided with specialist training on how to operate the printer as well as supporting software.

‘This was provided twice – once for the staff and once for students. It has even offered repeat training sessions if needed at any point.’
