We will create new markets and customers
with innovative and original products,
with the aim of being a 100 billion yen company.

An innovator that always provides “something new, something different“ to the market

We aim to be a market leader in digital on-demand production by developing market-oriented products with our inkjet and cutting technologies. Already, we have created markets in the diverse fields of SG, IP, and TA with proprietary products that are world-firsts and industry-firsts.

Building our businesses in the industrial IP and TA markets into a second and third pillar alongside the SG market

The penetration rate of digital on-demand production in industry is only a few percent . . .
→ There is still a lot of room for growth in the market!
Demand is becoming visible especially in the TA market, where we anticipate the largest growth.

Mimaki’s Growth Strategy

Cutting technology Inkjet printing technology Mimaki’s IoT Mimaki’s 3D Connected to downstream processes A three-dimensional signboard A mannequin signboard Connected to factories Model building Action figure Fishing lure Place of production is connected to place of consumption Buttons Accessories Promoting digitalization with cutting and inkjet printing technologies Innovate ways to manufacture products Full-color three-dimensional modeling Existing business areas Growth areas

Going forward, Mimaki will take the Internet of Things (IoT) and 3D printing as key factors for growth and will develop, produce, and market products that can provide unprecedented added value.

Mimaki’s IoT

IP

① Mimaki’s products link smoothly with other processes, increasing the production efficiency of mass production lines.

  • Mass production lines
  • Robots
  • Production control systems
[Speeding up]
Productivity that keeps up with mass production
[Unmanned]
Complementing cameras and other sensing technology
[Automation]
Information sharing with production control systems
TA

② Mimaki’s products close the geographical gap between points of production and points of consumption.

  • Information sharing with points of production (design, etc.)
  • Color management (same quality and color)
    Mass customization
    (Print only the amount ordered onto blank items)
Internet

③ Mimaki’s products create the details that general consumers are picky about.

  • Individual designs, extreme on-demand printing

Mimaki’s 3D

We are working on the development of 3D printers as a new technology field that applies UV-curable inkjet technology to modeling applications. Based on a patent we obtained in 2009, the printers we are developing the use of a full-color UV-curable inkjet method that will enable unprecedented 3D modeling in bright colors and high definition.
