Mimaki Engineering Introduces Eco-Friendly Carton Ink Cartridges to Worldwide Market

Mimaki launches eco-friendly carton ink cartridges to the global printing industry, significantly reducing plastic usage and improving recyclability

This latest solution is another initiative by the company to support printers in reducing their environmental impact

Mimaki Engineering Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of industrial ink jet printers, cutting plotters, and 3D printers, are proud to announce the global launch of its carton ink cartridges. This revolutionary move replaces traditional plastic cartridges with an environmentally friendly paper alternative, marking a significant stride towards sustainability in the printing industry.

The carton ink cartridges were initially introduced to the Japanese market in May 2023, and roll-out to the rest of the world starts as of today. Availability in the EMEA market is expected this summer. Designed for use in Mimaki’s eco-solvent printers, these cartridges retain exceptional performance while significantly reducing environmental impact.

By transitioning from plastic to paper, Mimaki has achieved a remarkable 68% reduction in plastic usage per cartridge. This innovative approach is projected to eliminate approximately 44 tons of plastic and 65 tons of CO2 emissions annually, underscoring Mimaki’s commitment to a greener future.

Moreover, the lighter weight of carton ink cartridges translates to an estimated 8-ton reduction in CO2 emissions during transportation, further contributing to a decarbonised society.

Recognising its groundbreaking design and eco-conscious packaging, the ink cartridge received the prestigious Industrial Packaging Category Award at the 2023 Japan Packaging Contest.

Innovating for a Greener Future

In alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Mimaki continues to champion resource-recycling management and technology.
Mimaki are also working towards sustainable solutions in various sectors, with the latest innovations including:

  • Neo-Chromato Process: This innovative technology facilitates material recycling, leading to a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions through the reuse of textile materials.
  • TRAPIS: The textile printing pigment transfer system enables printing on fabrics without the need for specialised techniques or expertise, promoting efficiency and sustainability in textile production.
  • M2COA: An automated packaging system for industrial product printing, which addresses labour shortage issues in the print service business by streamlining operations.

In addition to these solutions, all of which will be on display on its drupa 2024 stand, Mimaki has implemented environmental measures such as reducing cushioning material in 2L ink packs across all ink-producing plants as of March 2023.

Arjen Evertse, General Manager Sales EMEA at Mimaki Europe commented “We remain committed to innovation in all parts of the production process, from the ink cartridges to the technology itself, in pursuit of a positive environmental impact. To respond swiftly to social and environmental needs, we see the importance of advanced technologies such as automation, high-efficiency and high-speed printers, and waterless textile technology.

“Through all these sustainable initiatives, we continue to be dedicated in making a positive contribution to the global print community and fostering a sustainable future for generations to come.”
