Mimaki Debuts UFJ-3042FX Tabletop Printer
Available with three different UV inksets.
Mimaki USA introduced its UJF-3042FX, a UV LED flatbed tabletop model that allows for the use of flexible inks for added applications, including garment transfers. Like its UJF-3042 sibling, the 3042FX can print on flat substrates up to 12 x 16.5 in., and materials up to 2-in. thick. The FX, however, is available with three different UV inksets: LH-100 (CMYK + W and C, for substrates that do no require bending/folding); LF-200 (CMYK + W, for P-O-P, flexible packaging, etc.), and LF-140 (CMYKcm + W, more flexible than the LH-100). The printer also features an automatic primer, in which the primer is applied by the inkjet system – allowing for better adhesion to materials not usually suited for inkjet. The UJF-3042FX offers a top resolution of 1200 x 1400 dpi.
