Mimaki has introduced a new 3.2 metre roll to roll inkjet printer, the UJV55-320, which uses UV curable ink, cured with a low energy LED light array.

“This results in sign and display graphics that exit the printer dry and are immediately ready for further processing, significantly reducing production cycle times,” Mimaki explained in a press release.

“In addition, UV-curable inks emit no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), minimising its environmental footprint,” the digital printer manufacturer added.

“Large indoor signs backlit with energy-efficient LED lights are growing in popularity as brand owners move to more environmentally sustainable advertising,” general manager of marketing (EMEA), Mike Horsten said.

“Users will be especially pleased with the image opacity and broad colour gamut this outstanding printer delivers, while offering the best price and performance in its class, ensuring profitable operations,” he too added.

According to Mimaki, the UJV55-320 is an affordable roll-fed wide format printer that delivers speeds of up to 110 sq. metres per hour and print resolutions of up to 1200 dpi, depending on the substrates.

“Instant-curing UV inks enable post-processing and operations immediately after printing, which helps shorten the operation time and improve productivity altogether,” the company informed.

The UJV55-320 also features; cyan, magenta, yellow, black, white, light cyan and light magenta inks that can be configured in a 4-colour mode or 6-colour set plus white.

Light cyan and light magenta inks reduce grainy appearance in light colours and ensure smooth gradations, while white ink allows printing high quality, vibrant results on transparent and coloured media.

As per the company, the three-layer colour white colour printing is especially suitable for production of applications such as window graphics and backlit signs.

“It enables beautiful colour reproduction for backlit signs during day and night and moreover, white-only printing is also an option for a stylish look or use on dark substrates,” mimaki noted.

The RasterLink 6 software with a patented dithering technique and Mimaki Advanced Pass System (MAPS) offer higher quality and reduced banding, even at high print speeds and during longer print runs.

Media rolls in twin roll operation can range from 210 to 1,524 mm in width, with the distance between the two rolls being automatically detected for faultless performance. (AR)
