Graphix Supply World Launching Mimaki UCJV Series

Graphix Supply World Launching Mimaki UCJV Series.
Graphix Supply World will be launching the Mimaki UCJV300-160 and UCJV150-160 roll-to-roll UV LED printing and cutting solutions at its Johannesburg offices on 7 December and its Cape Town offices on 12 December. It will be launched in Africa for the first time.

The system adds creativity to the production of signs and display graphics, while maintaining Mimaki’s signature affordability and ease of use.

The UCJV Series is available in two models: the four-colour UCJV150-160, and the UCJV300-160 that can accommodate up to seven ink colours in cost effective one litre bottles.

Each can produce a wide variety of print-and-cut applications offered by many signage, commercial and packaging print service providers. UV-LED curing technology enables print service providers to use an expanded range of media including uncoated print media and many thin film substrates that may be too heat sensitive for latex or solvent high heat fixation systems.

Four-layer printing is available on the UCJV300-160 model and offers an enhanced print capability that allows designers to build layered, transformative graphics for backlit applications.

The integrated cut functionality enables volume production of labels, decals, window clings, floor graphics, POP displays, vehicle markings, packaging, prototypes and more in a single unit. Additionally, UV ink technology prevents common problems such as film separation and other issues related to post-cutting that can occur with solvent and latex inks.

UCJV Series prints are instantly cured at even the highest production speeds. This allows users to print rapidly and immediately move to the finished product, unlike other technologies that require slower production to accommodate for drying time or out-gassing. For many jobs, instant drying, high scratch resistant UV printing can also eliminate the need for additional finishing like laminating, enabling print service providers to reduce cycle time while benefiting from additional cost savings.

Combining white and coloured inks on the UCJV300-160 model adds value to applications using transparent or semi-opaque films.
