Mimaki’s new latex printer range includes the JV400-160LX.


Mimaki launches JV400 printer range alongside new latex and super durable UV inks


Mimaki’s continued commitment to innovative products and technologies sees the launch of a complete new range of wide format printers, new inks and environmentally friendly solutions for the sign, display and graphics markets. The new Mimaki JV400-130LX and JV400-160LX feature state


of the art Mimaki latex inks and are the first machines to incorporate Mimaki’s cutting edge print engine. This heralds the way for other ink types which will deliver a significant number of applications based upon the same platform and include Mimaki’s pioneering SUV ink; available shortly after the new latex machines. Mimaki’s latex ink delivers significant advantages over


alternative solutions: requiring a very low heat to cure, opening up more materials, consuming substantially less energy and therefore minimising running costs. It is also the first latex solution to offer a white ink, which sits alongside six process colours with a vibrant yield and extended gamut. The Mimaki latex inks are quick drying and supplied in 600cc ink packs that when used in conjunction with Mimaki’s eco-cases reduce waste and allow for long unattended print runs. The 1.3m and 1.6m wide Mimaki JV400-LX printers feature


a unique piezo print head, offering the usual advantages over alternative technologies, i.e. no requirement for frequent user head replacement, a stunning four picolitre dot size along with variable dot technology. The Mimaki latex ink is an aqueous, resin based technology


with proven eco friendly qualities and zero odour, making the machines ideal for installation in shops, education establishments

and office spaces, as well as traditional print companies and graphics setups. Pre, print and post heaters typically running below 60 degrees


C in combination with built in drying fans aid the fast curing of the Mimaki latex ink. With no gassing off required; any post print lamination can take place immediately, shortening total job time and enabling print suppliers to respond to short lead times. Coupled to Mimaki’s class leading print speeds of up to 18 sqm/hour at 900 x 900dpi, the JV400-LX range delivers a compelling solution across a broad range of applications. Available soon after the Mimaki latex range and utilising the


...exceptional high durability from the unique ink recipe...


same impressive print engine is Mimaki’s unique SUV ink set, which combines the flexibility of solvent with the durability of UV cured inks. The newly developed ink’s exceptionally high durability comes from the unique ink recipe with components of the ink keying to the ink-receiving layer of the media. The surface of the ink is then cured using a UV process which results in a vibrant, glossy, durable and flexible finish making it


ideal for banner production, pull ups and display materials, or any application where a combination of vibrant colour and a long lasting, scratch resistant print is important. Both new models in the JV400 family take advantage of


Mimaki’s powerful and user-friendly RasterLink6 RIP. The UK & Irish launch of the Mimaki JV400-LX latex printer takes place on Hybrid’s stand at Sign & Digital UK 2012. Further details can be found by visiting the website www.hybridservices.co.uk or telephoning 01270 501900.
