Mimaki has introduced the new UV curable inkjet printer UJV500-160 which achieves a maximum print speed of 60sqm/hr (645 sq.ft/h). The new printer is available with LUS-200 3M inks with the MCS Warranty and supports long lasting, energy saving LED UV lamps.
The UJV500-160 inkjet printer employs a new LUS-200 UV ink which has been jointly-developed with 3M. When applied onto 3M media and installed using 3M guidelines, this ink carries the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty, widely recognised as the industry’s most comprehensive finished graphics warranty.
This warranty covers fading, cracking, peeling and other aspects of graphic performance. The LUS-200 ink is ideal for applications with curved surfaces such as vehicle wraps and fleet graphics where stretching could crack other inks. The unmatched productivity and comprehensive 3M™ MCS™ Warranty, and the wide media compatibility open up new possibilities in the inkjet signage industry.
The Mimaki UJV500-160 features:
• Since UV inks dry immediately when exposed to UV light, no drying time is required. This dramatically improves work efficiency for the user.
• The new UV ink type LUS-200 with the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty ensures outdoor durability for a wide range of flexible applications. This flexible ink enables installation on curved surfaces.
• Environmentally-friendly UV printing generates little VOCs. Curing is performed with a power-saving and long-lasting LED UV lamp.
