Big Picture

Owners of the Mimaki JV3 can soon print with the new SS2 solvent inkset, which includes white ink. The JV3-75 SPII, JV3- 160SP, and JV3-250SP models, with new firmware, can print with the following ink configurations: S models: CMYK + WW (two white inks = double ink density); SP models: CMYKcm + WW.

The inks will be available in 440- and 220ml cartridges. At ISA, the SS2 white inks were printing onto clear, gold, and silver films, and Mimaki was showing sign, label, and sticker applications for the inks. Expect the new SS2 inkset by June or July 2005.

In addition, Mimaki reports, it will also introduce fluorescent and spot colors (orange, green, fluorescent pink, yellow, and green) later this year. (Mimaki: www.mimakiusa.com)
