Also new is the JV400-LX equipped with white latex ink.
Mimaki Engineering has unveiled a “technology demonstration” of its new JFX500-2131, a high-speed UV-LED flatbed that’s equipped with newly developed printheads and UV-LED curing unit. Still in development, the 83 x 122-in. flatbed offers output up to 646 sq ft/hr in 4-color mode, and up to 538 sq ft/hr with white ink. It can accommodate materials up to 4-in. thick. Inksets available include CMYKcm + white, or CMYK + white + clear.
Also demonstrated was an Easy Direct Print system. Comprising a dedicated camera and software (plug-in for Raster Link 6 software), the system allows for the reading and automatic adjustment of misalignment on a flatbed printer.
And Mimaki showcased its new JV400-LX equipped with white latex ink, and the new JV400-SUV, equipped with solvent UV ink. Both systems can print up to 195 sq ft/hr, offer top resolutions of 1200 dpi, and employ Mimaki’s RasterLink6 RIP. Both models are available in 53- and 63-in. versions.
