As a leader and innovator manufacturer for professional printers in Sign Graphics (SG), Industrial Products (IP) and Textile and Apparel (TA) markets, Mimaki has decided once again to take the lead and exhibit this new prototype at the "JAPAN SHOP 2017" Exhibition, held from 7 to 10 March, at Big Sight in Tokyo. During the exhibition, we will propose solutions, demonstrate and create samples with the help of the 3D UV-curable inkjet-printer (3DUJ-P) for all three markets. On March 7th (Tuesday) from 13:00, at Conference Bld., Mimaki will held a press conference during which the 3 D printing concept, characteristics and future prospects will be explained.

Clear ink enhances product variations

3DUJ-P comes with a clear ink and combining it with color ink it is possible to create half color transparent models. Moreover, combining imaging and ingenuity truly amazing samples can be made and we are happy to let you hold them in your hands during the show. We will exhibit a 3D lamp model to better understand and feel the benefit of clear ink.
