Mimaki showcases its expertise with several eye-catching pieces on exhibition. They also had their new and improved printer on display

When passing by the booth of Mimaki, it was hard not to be confused at first given the realistic-looking 3D-printed replicas of objects such as sneakers. But it is not just replicas of objects, but also miniatures with a high level of detail on display that can draw your attention. In the gallery below, you can take a look at some of the pieces the company displayed at Formnext.

Beyond the display case, I had the pleasure to speak with Bert Benckhuysen (Senior Product Manager EMEA) about a current printer model the company showcased at the AM trade show. This was the third year Mimaki attended Formnext. Especially lifetime improvements were part of the changes discussed with the product manager. The biggest change, however, was a reduced pricing by 40 %. The company managed to achieve this in a variety of ways, one of which was the production of their own ink, Benckhuysen.

As an example of the quality improvements, the replica of a sneaker shows the detailed and authentic surface structure the company managed to replicate. Both the look and texture are eerily similar to a “real” sneaker.
