Mimaki Launches Two “100 Series” Models Worldwide

Mimaki USA, a leading provider of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, is proud to announce the release of two new roll-to-roll inkjet printers, the JV100-160 (eco solvent ink) and the UJV100-160 (UV LED ink), available in early December.

The latest addition to the extensive Mimaki product portfolio, the “100 Series” printers, are designed for faster high-quality printing and maximized productivity, perfect for the sign and graphics market. Both feature the newly introduced Dot Adjustment System (DAS) which offers automatic alignments to ensure consistent quality and repeatability. The DAS also frees up operators by performing common adjustments automatically, ensuring perfect alignments resulting in fine lines and details often expected in high-quality photographic imaging.

In addition, these products are equipped with a variety of standard Mimaki Core Technologies Nozzle Check Unit (NCU), Nozzle Recovery System (NRS), and Mimaki Advanced Pass System 4 (MAPS4) to ensure the highest level of print quality and production efficiency required in the market.

The JV100-160 utilizes Mimaki’s eco-solvent inks that are known for fast-drying capabilities, superior adhesion to media, and high scratch resistance characteristics. Easy-to-use eco-cartridges, available in 600 ml or 2,000 ml, enable production printing and rapid ink exchanges with no mess.

The JV100-160 is perfect for applications requiring the highest degree of printed quality such as photographic prints, vehicle wraps, and POP graphics. The optional light black ink configuration provides enriched grayscale gradation, higher contrast, and sharper details. The orange ink option extends the color gamut beyond that of standard inkjet printers, enabling a wider range of reds and oranges as well as a smoother transition between reds and oranges.

The UJV100-160, first introduced in March 2020 to select markets, was received so favorably that it is now available to all customers throughout the Americas. The UJV100-160 utilizes Mimaki’s UV LED curable inks that produce instantly dry graphics for significantly faster production turnaround times.

The UJV100-160 accommodates the widest array of printable media in the industry, including PVC, fabrics, paper without an ink receiving layer, and PET films.

Mimaki’s LUS 170 UV LED inks utilized by the UJV100-160 are perfect for conservationists and additionally are flexible enough to achieve the most popular print work including vehicle graphics, banners, stickers and decals.

The white and clear ink configuration available with the UJV100-160 makes a diverse portfolio of applications possible, including the unique ability to provide two-layer printing capabilities perfect for backlit and transparent PET film applications.

Furthermore, both models feature Greenguard Gold certified inks, granted to products that meet some of the world’s most rigorous chemical emissions standards, helping to reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure. Both products also include "Raster Link 7" as the standard software RIP (Raster Image Processor) that controls printing layout and enhanced printer features.
