Miyakoshi has introduced the MJP series of digital inkjet presses in India. The company is the OEM partner for many big players in the digital printing world. However, it introduced the MJP series under its own brand name in the year 2004, which is now being introduced in the Indian market through its exclusive representative, Provin Technos.
Miyakoshi has four press models to cater to different market segments ranging from short-run label printing to short-run flexible packaging.
The MJP 13LXV is a full color LED-UV inkjet press specialised for label printing. The MJP 20E/EX is a full color duplex water-based inkjet press specialised for transactional printing. The MJP 20/30 IXS is a full color duplex water-based inkjet press specialised for commercial printing, and the MJP 30 AXF is a water-based inkjet press for flexible packaging. The MJP 30 AXF press for flexible packaging is represented exclusively by KYMC India, for the Indian market.
All the machines are roll-to-roll high speed digital presses with piezoelectric drop-on-demand system line head. These presses from Miyakoshi comes with the extensibility of choosing from the various inline finishing options ranging from sheeting, slitting, hot foil, embossing, amongst others, which have also been developed by Miyakoshi.
Akshay Kaushal, executive director sales, Provin Technos said: ‘Miyakoshi’s technology know-how dates back to when the company grew in manufacturing offset presses for business forms. One of the key parameters in industrial high-speed inkjet printers is the ability to transport the media precisely, and in conjunction with the most advanced high-resolution print head technologies, the system is designed to dance together to create the most precise droplet placement over the media resulting in high quality prints. Some of the competitors are not able to achieve this and must resort to outsourcing the unwind-rewind, but Miyakoshi has superior control which they developed from several decades of building thousands of offset presses. Furthermore, we are capable of offering our own in-line processing, thus, the customers can benefit from the single-source procurement as well as trouble-shooting.’
The market share of Miyakoshi inkjet presses in DPS segment worldwide is roughly around 40 percent including OEM manufacturing.
