Mimaki has announced the CJV150 series cut-and-print devices. These models broaden the CJV series family to bring proven platform capabilities to print service providers demanding high quality, versatility and reliability but in smaller volumes.
Based on the recently-introduced CJV300 Series models, the CJV150 Series printers add cut-and-print capability for signage or textile applications. CJV150 Series models feature advanced piezo head technology.
These cut-and-print devices can use either SS21 eco-solvent inks or Sb53 dye-sublimation inks and are available in four sizes:
• 81.28cm (32-inch) CJV150-75.
• 109.22cm (43-inch) CJV150-107.
• 137.16cm (54-inch) CJV150-130.
• 162.56cm (64-inch) CJV150-160.
SS21 eco-solvent inks for the CJV150 Series are available in ten colours including White and Silver packaged in 220 ml cartridges; and Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Light Cyan, Light Magenta, Light Black and Orange, packaged in 440 ml cartridges. Sb53 dye-sublimation inks are available in Magenta, Blue, Yellow, Black, Light Magenta and Light Blue, packaged in 440ml cartridges.
The integrated cut functionality enables short-run or custom production of labels, decals, T-shirt transfers, vehicle markings, package prototypes and more in a single unit.
SS21 Silver ink, available for the CJV150 Series, can be used to create metallic colour effects, which are in high demand for label, decal and package prototyping applications. This Silver formulation delivers brilliant mirror-effect results that are not diminished even when film over-laminate is applied. RasterLink6 RIP software, standard with CJV150 Series units, includes a swatch palette of 648 metallic colours that are easily selectable from Illustrator® and can be used in a near endless combination of custom colours.
The CJV150 Series offers the same advanced cutting functions included in the CJV300 Series models including continuous registration mark detection to enable cutting of an entire roll of media without interruption. Over-cut and corner-cut functions reduce waste by ensuring clearly cut edges with no uncut fragments. The segment correction function facilitates precision cutting over long-length prints, even if the image is distorted. Also included is a cut-and-print function for pre-cutting before printing, which prevents common problems such as film separation and other issues related to post-cutting on thin materials.
