GET IN ON THE GROUND FLOOR

The Mimaki Microfactory can help you utilize existing digital technologies to get in on the ground floor of the rapidly growing on-demand manufacturing market.

The concept behind the Mimaki Microfactory is that there are existing technologies – including digital printing and cutting, plus inks from Mimaki, as well as complementary technologies from other industry leaders in finishing and fabrication – that can be utilized to accommodate local microfactories for a variety of finished goods. With the Mimaki Microfactory workflows we are educating entrepreneurs and established brands on how to utilize digital technologies to bridge the gap between the consumer and manufacturer, deliver unprecedented just-in-time production, develop true customer intimacy through personalization, and reduce time-to-market by enabling them to move from concept to final design; and then from production to packaged, sales-ready, customized products within hours instead of weeks or months.
 

LEARN HOW

The themed outlet for the Mimaki Microfactory is ELEV8TE, a startup sporting goods manufacturer, which will be showcased through demonstrations, hands-on tutorials, and training sessions at featured Mimaki events throughout 2017. The ELEV8TE innovation experience begins with the ISA EXPO April 20-22 in Las Vegas. Centered in the booth, the Mimaki Microfactory will demonstrate production of personalized gear including helmets, apparel and skateboards along with other items for “sale” in the ELEV8TE company store.

Hourly sessions at the Mimaki booth will provide Expo attendees guidance for developing their own Mimaki Microfactory by outlining the path to sellable consumer goods that includes concept, setup, printing, finishing, and shipment-ready final production. Real-time production of personalized manufactured sporting goods will provide attendees with understanding of digital technologies from Mimaki and its partners; along with a framework to develop their own ideas and products, they can learn how to take advantage of expanding business opportunities in signage, awards, prototyping and areas yet to be defined.
