Mimaki announces global launch of “100 series” roll-to-roll inkjet printers

Mimaki has announced the release two new roll-to-roll inkjet printers, the JV100-160 (eco solvent ink) and the UJV100-160 (UV LED ink), available worldwide in early December.

Mimaki Australia will be holding good stock levels of these new models in April 2021.

The "100 series" provides customers with new high operability based on the high image quality and reliability technologies that Mimaki has accumulated over many years. It is a product that can be used easily even by those who are unfamiliar with the printer operation.

The printer is equipped with a DAS (Dot Adjustment System) function as standard, which automatically adjusts the dot position correction and media feed amount, and can be conventionally performed manually when changing the media to be printed. This feature provides for high operability and significantly reduces workload, while consistently delivering high quality printing by eliminating variance in adjustment among operators.

In addition, the products are equipped with a variety of Mimaki's functions for sign graphics, including NCU (Nozzle Check Unit), NRS (Nozzle Recovery System) and MAPS4 (Mimaki Advanced Pass System 4) to ensure the realisation of the high level of print quality required in the market. The solvent ink compatible model JV100-160 is compatible with Mimaki's new generation ink, which has excellent drying properties.

The newly developed inks evaporate quickly to minimise bleeding, even on images requiring large amounts of ink to print, producing beautiful, detailed expressions. This allows indoor and outdoor signs to print directly on common PVC media. This can realise sharp and eye-catching signage prints for applications such as indoor advertisements and outdoor signs that require high weather resistance.

The JV100-160 is perfect for applications requiring the highest degree of printed quality such as photographic prints, vehicle wraps, and POP graphics. The optional light black ink configuration provides enriched greyscale gradation, higher contrast and sharper details. The orange ink option extends the colour gamut beyond that of standard inkjet printers enabling a wider range of reds and oranges as well as a smoother transition between reds and oranges.

The UJV100-160, first introduced to emerging markets in March 2020, has been received favourably by customers, and sales are now to be expanded worldwide. UV-cured ink used by the model contribute to a significant reduction in production turnaround time due to their quick-drying properties upon output.

In addition to PVC and tarpaulin, which are common in outdoor signage, it can be printed on various media such as fabric (dedicated for sign graphics use), paper without an ink receiving layer, and PET film. Furthermore, both models are equipped with RasterLink7 as the standard software RIP (Raster Image Processor) that controls printing layout and enhanced printer features.
