Mimaki launches four new UJF-Series direct-to-object UV LED inkjet printers

The UJF-Series printers are designed for high quality output and superior productivity.

The four new high speed, high quality direct-to-object UV LED inkjet printers will be commercially available in December 2021. The UJF-7151plus II and the new UJF-MkII e Series, comprising three advanced, small format solutions with capability design that takes industrial print and marking to the next level. With new applications and performance benefits.

To say that Mimaki is excited is an understatement. Brad Creighton the National Marketing Manager said the new solutions have been specifically developed to ensure customers can increase their competitive edge and boost profitability. “By expanding and enhancing our UV LED product range at such a crucial time for the industry, we aim to provide industrial printers with the cutting-edge technology needed to grow their businesses. For printers currently operating in other markets, these new solutions represent an opportunity to break into this diverse and successful sector, utilising our most innovative UV printers yet and supported by the industry’s leading manufacturer.”

The UJF-7151plus II - Combining robust, high-speed production with outstanding image quality is designed for seamless and reliable high-speed production and is equipped with 8 printheads to allow dual four-coloured (CMYK) ink configurations. The six-colour configuration includes light cyan and light magenta for more accurate colour reproduction and can achieve 1800dpi image resolution.

The UJF-7151plus II is equipped with eight printheads, to allow for dual four-colour (CMYK) ink configurations. This allows faster print speeds of up to 190% compared to the previous model. The new system breaks creative boundaries with several features developed to enhance image quality, like the MFD2 (half-toning) processing functionality to further control dot position. The results in sharper edges and finer lines and fewer colour irregularities.

The UJF-7151plus II has a six-colour configuration including light cyan and light magenta for a more accurate colour reproduction and it can achieve 1800dpi image resolution, which provides a superior definition for high-quality applications. The new printer’s innovative Colour Gloss functionality adds a glossy finish to hardened colour inks, this helps users to create distinguishing textures and details, helping products to stand out without the use of clear varnish. The load capacity has increased to 30kg, so it is able to handle high quality print jigs for accurate printing of heavy media – glass, wood and metal.

The three new small format printers the UJF-3042MkII e, the UJF-6042MkII e and the UJF-3042MkII Ex e offer cutting-edge image quality and stability for printing onto a variety of soft and hard media, including leather, wood, acrylic, metal, and glass.

They feature a print area of 300mm x 420mm, and the UJF-6042MkII e offers a larger print size of 610mm x 420mm. All UJF-MkII e Series printers feature new MFD2 processing for surprising image quality as well as an improved gap check sensor.

The laser sensor detects media placement to prevent printheads from contacting the material during printing and detects transparent materials for superior accuracy and highly controlled media detection. The new printers provide too, improved usability for the operator by adding visual guidance on the 3.45inch full colour display.

The UJF printer series feature MDL (Mimaki Device Language) commands support, for automated workpiece transfer. This allows the user to control the new UJF printers from external production systems and devices. The enhanced automation increases user control and productivity and reduces manual operator intervention to increase efficiencies.

The new models incorporate RasterLink7 as standard RIP software, supporting one-product-at-a-time printing. This latest software platform provides users with time and production efficiencies.

The UJF Series UV inks are GREENGUARD GOLD certified and the new range of printers incorporate the proprietary Mimaki Core Technologies, including NCU (Nozzle Check Unit)2, NRS (Nozzle Recovery System)3, and MAPS4 (Mimaki Advanced Pass System4)4 functions enabling stable output of high-quality prints.
