Nagano, Japan, October 12, 2022
Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. (Head office: Tohmi-shi, Nagano, President: Kazuaki Ikeda), specializing in industrial inkjet printers, cutting plotters and 3D printers, newly announces a "3-liter Ink Supply Option" complementing its Large-format Flatbed UV Inkjet Printer "JFX600-2513". Global sales of this new optional item are scheduled to commence in January 2023.
"3-liter Ink Supply Option" can increase the ink tank capacity of "JFX600-2513" to a maximum of 3 liters, also allowing for the 3-liter tanks of the Option to be replenished from 1-liter ink bottles.
The 3-liter ink tank capacity reduces the frequently required refilling tasks to enhance work efficiency. In addition, the Option enables an ink replenishment even during printing processes, further reducing printer downtime to allow for longer operating and greatly improving productivity.
Automatic white ink agitation functionality is newly added to the "3-liter Ink Supply Option", eliminating the need for manual mixing, thus contributing to the reduction of operator workload. Weight sensors are now incorporated to detect the weight of remaining inks, enabling for a more accurate determination of ink levels.
"JFX600-2513" printers are compatible with the proprietary Mimaki "MDL command," allowing customers to control printers from production systems or peripheral devices. The Command enables unmanned, labor-saving, automated operation of respective printing processes, such as the transport of print media (workpieces). In collaboration with the newly announced "3-liter Ink Supply Option," the Command is designed to support extensive continuous automated printing sessions.
The "3-liter Ink Supply Option" is scheduled to be exhibited at both the "Viscom Italia 2022" taking place in Milan, Italy from October 13 to 15, and the "PRINTING United Expo" to be held in Las Vegas, USA from October 19 to 21.
With "Something New, Something Different" as our management vision, Mimaki Engineering will continue to pursue new technological innovations constantly and to realize the "beauty and speed" that our customers demand.
Large-format Flatbed UV Inkjet Printer "JFX600-2513"
"JFX600-2513" is a large-format flatbed UV inkjet printer incorporating 16 print heads designed for highly efficient printing and high productivity. Maximum output size of the printer is 2500mm X 1300mm X 60mm, corresponding to 4X8 plates (1220mm X 2440mm) often used in signboard production. Enabling direct printing on media, the printer is capable of processing a wide variety of mediums including resin, glass, and metal, not to mention large-format signboards. The printer can accommodate medium up to 60mm in thickness for direct printing, and also features 2.5D printing (multiple application of ink) consisting of layer upon layer UV ink print, creating a feeling of unevenness on the printed surface for use in higher value-added printing applications.
"JFX600-2513" sees a broad range of applications covering sign graphics including large indoor/outdoor signboards and advertisements to architectural applications.
