Mimaki to Bring Innovations & Proven Solutions to PacPrint
At PacPrint2022, Mimaki will be showcasing its latest innovations alongside their tried and proven print technologies, debuting the JV330 Series and a range of new technologies to improve businesses’ print experience, as well as its well-known UCJV300 LED Print & Cut series.
“The JV330 Series features the new Mimaki Weaving Dot Technology (MWDT), which changes the order of ink droplet placement depending on the printing conditions,” says Brad Creighton, National Marketing Manager, explaining that this helps suppress unexpected occurrences of streaks or unevenness of printing caused by slight individual differences in the print head or subtle deviations in adjustment.
The JV330-160 with XY Slitter is set to create plenty of interest.
“The XY slitter and the Media Changer are two other, high-value functions that assist in saving work and labour. The XY slitter has an in-line function that cuts all sides of the media after printing, enabling automatic slit processing without the need of taking-out media. This will significantly shorten the post-process work and reduce the space required for the cutting work that used to be done manually.
“The Media Changer accommodates up to three rolls of media to be able to change by simply turning the handle with light force – this greatly reduces the time and effort required to change media, contributing to a more efficient work environment,” Creighton says. “The result is higher precision and consistency, with less manual interference required.”
In addition, Mimaki will be premiering new large and small format flatbed printers on the show floor. These new models pursue greater speed without sacrificing stability and accuracy, and use UV inks certified as GREENGUARD Gold due to their environmental friendliness.
“The new JFX600-2513 is the successor model to the JFX500-2131, Mimaki’s large format flatbed LED UV printer,” Creighton explains. “It’s a large-format flatbed LED UV inkjet printer with up to 330% faster print speed than JFX500, and is exceptionally versatile, with six colours available including light colours, a large table size and a vacuum table that supports media as thick as 60mm.”
The machine has also been designed with usability in mind, with support for MDL commands which make it easy for operators to achieve automation and labour savings on processes like work piece transfer, during printing.
Another showpiece sure to create interest is the new UJF-6042 MkII e, the successor to the smaller-format flatbed UJF-6042MkII printer.
“The new model has further improved image quality and machine stability, while maintaining the operability that was highly acclaimed in the current model,” Creighton explains.
“With a larger print size of 610mm x 420mm, this new model supports A2 size and 153mm height. In addition, the new printers provide improved usability to the operator by adding visual guidance on the 3.45inch full colour display.
“All UJF-MkII e Series printers feature new MFD2 processing for exceptional image quality as well as an improved, laser gap check sensor, which detects media placement to prevent printheads from making contact with the material during printing,” he adds. “It can even detect transparent materials for superior accuracy and highly controlled media detection.”
Mimaki will be running live demonstrations at stand C08 at PacPrint, which will co-locate with the Visual Impact sign and display expo and the Label & Packaging Expo, at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 28 June to 1 July this year.
