Japan: Mimaki to launch 3 new products in November
Japan-based Mimaki Engineering Co. Ltd. will release three new products in November 2017.
The products are 3DUJ553 (3D Colour Printer), UCJV300/150-160 (UVCurable Print & Cut Inkjet Printer) and LA-160W/ LA-170W (Genuine Warm Laminator).
The 3DUJ-553 printer is studded with a UV LED curable inkjet system which enables it to achieve the fullcolour modelling (up to 10 million colours). Mimaki has become the first company in the world to do so.
The rich colour expression of the printer assists in creating the final product in such a way that the extra colouring does not impede the effect of the actual expression. The use of UV-curable ink in 3DUJ-553 results in the exact development of a 3D product. The development is possible by enabling a 22μm layer pitch in order to obtain the high reproducibility of model detailing.
Furthermore, the ink is supported by a water soluble material which prevents any possibility of a sensitive design damage.
Mimaki’s other release, UCJV300/150-160 is a versatile roll-to-roll inkjet printer which can perform both cutting and printing operations.
The printer provides a 4-layer print option, i.e., (Colour+Black+White+Colour). Also, UCJV300/150-160 comes equipped with enhanced colour visualization mechanism to make the product differentiable during day and night.
Additionally, the ID Cut function of the printer ensures improved printing and cutting operations for signs, stickers, labelling and packaging. The UCJV300/150160 model also uses UVcurable ink.
Unlike the other printers, UCJV300/150-160 does not need ink drying time. The printer can be used in applications such as PVC, tarpaulin, fabric, PET film and paper.
The third in the list, LA-160W/LA-170W, is a laminator that can be used after the UV printing operation. The laminator has maximum laminating speed of 7,500 mm/min.
