The two companies launched the Mimaki JV400-130LX and JV400-160LX printers for the first time in the UK at the Sign & Digital UK expo. The printers feature state of the art Mimaki latex inks and are the first machines to incorporate Mimaki’s cutting edge print engine.
The JV400-130/160LX is a latex printer featuring newly developed environmentally friendly latex ink. The JV400-130/160SUV is a revolutionary solvent/UV printer, blending the flexibility of solvent printing with the durability of UV-cured inks. The JV400 product line achieves faster print speed and higher print quality without compromise.
The JV400-130/160LX supports six colours plus white, and is the world’s first latex printer using white ink, increasingly required in the signage market. Mimaki’s white latex ink meets the needs of a wide range of printing requirements and substrates. It can be utilised with transparent PET, window decoration, shatterproof window film and more. The printer is equipped with Mimaki’s MCT (Mimaki Circulation Technology) ink circulation system that prevents pigment sedimentation for stable ink dispersion and a reduced need for manual ink cartridge circulation processes.
Other products showcased include the Mimaki CJV30 printer/cutters, a substantial range of flatbed and roll-to-roll UV products and a selection of textile and soft signage printers. One exciting feature was the Mimaki UJF-3042 flatbed A3 LED UV printer which produced personalised products, small format signs and branded goods on the stand. Visitors got to see how it can help inspire new revenue streams or improve production processes for their businesses.
Marketing manager for Hybrid, Duncan Jefferies said, ‘Sign & Digital UK is the perfect opportunity for visitors to see all that’s great in digital print. We look forward to welcoming customers old and new to the Hybrid stand to witness the breadth of capabilities that Mimaki has on offer.’
