JV5 Series [end of support]

JV5 series combining high image quality with outstanding performance

Max. 1440 dpi. Variable dot sizes are adopted.

An amazing high-grade specification which enables super high speed and exceptional image quality

Newly developed high speed head

1head consist of 8 lines of 180 nozzles. 4 times as nlany as the conventional head. Totaling 1,440 nozzles.

Output capacity - in the case of using a practical image quality for short distance signboard (540 x 1,080 dpi).
The time of 4 color printing : 40m² (430sq.ft.)/h *In the case of JV5-160S

Cutting edge function for high speed continuous printing.

UISS (Unterrupted Ink supply System)

JV5 can utilize four cartridges per color in 4-color mode. When the ink cartridge runs out, another cartridge begins supplying ink and helps prevent running out of ink. A maximum of 1,760cc ink per color can be loaded at one time.

High volumes and low ink costs
MBIS* (option)

The bulk ink system using ink packs of aluminum achieves as stable and reliable ink ejection as printing solely with cartridges. It is possible to use both 2-liter ink packs in combination with regular 220/440cc cartridges for colors that are not so often used. In-end detection function to prevent misprints without ink is also available.The bulk ink system is an eco-friendly ink system that produces less waste while achieving continuous printing.

Ink Variations

HS Solvent ink

An aggressive solvent ink which meets the needs for high scratch resistance and high-speed high density printing.
Solvent ink

SS21 Solvent ink

This ink provides the ability of printing on various types of media with high scratch resistance.
Compared to HS ink, SS21 ink would be inferior to fast drying.
Solvent ink

ES3 Eco Solvent ink

Virtually odorless and user-friendly ink which does not require any special ventilation.
Solvent ink

Water-based pigment ink

Ink which has high light fastness and can reproduce vivid and delicate color tones.
Water-based Pigment ink

Sublimation ink

Fast drying and high density ink for sublimation transfer to polyester substrates.
Sublimation ink

Additional features and benefits to improve operation performance

4-color mode realizes non-grainy finish Variable dot technology

By producing dots in three different sizes, smooth high resolution graphics are created without a grainy appearance. Even at high speed and in low resolution mode high quality printing is possible.

3 way intelligent heater

Intelligent heater to enhance color development and to fix the ink by automatically heating the media to its proper temperature.(included as standard)

Head height adjustment

The thickness of the media is automatically detected and the height of the head is automatically adjusted to get the designated head gap. Even when the thickness of the media is changed, printing can be made with a constant head gap. This enables the user to always obtain the best printing results.

Head gap can be set step-less in 4 positions between 1.5 mm to 7 mm.

Media feed compensation

The media is transported evenly without being affected by the varying weight of the roll media. This eliminates any banding caused by irregular feeding of the media so maintaining the highest.

Automatic nozzle drop-out detection

Monitoring ink-discharging state from the printing head and ink clogging is quickly detected and cleaned, saving the waste of media and ink.

Large sized heater & Drying fan, Exhaust cover

* JV5-130S/160S: Standard feature

Equipped with a large-sized post-heater and drying fan, which promotes drying of the media printed at high speeds, thus enabling the winding.
In addition, equipped with exhaust fan and exhaust duct to quickly evacuate ink odors. Control the odor of ink generated during printing.

Exhaust cover

Drying fan

Special equipments support heavyweight roll media printing of JV5-320S.

Secure operation with wider media. Feeding device and take-up device for heavy media.

Feeding device and take-up device can securely feed even heavy media with the width of 3,250mm (128"). Heavy media weighing over 100kg (220lbs.) can be fed with constant tension by means of tension bar and winding device.

Direct Print and Transfer Print

Direct sublimation printing and sublimation transfer printing are able to reproduce vibrant color on polyester fabric while retaining fabric texture. Take advantage of rub and water fastness, these printing methods are used for fabric signage, T-shirts and uniforms.

What is Direct sublimation print?

Direct printing on pretreated polyester fabric without using transfer paper. After direct printing, the polyester is heated for color production and fixation.

Direct sublimation printing is transfer paperless environmentally friendly method, and provide high level print results with sharper image than transfer printing.

What is sublimation transfer print?

Printed surface of the transfer paper is placed on the polyester fabric and the two are pressed together at high temperature. The molecular chains of the fibers break on heating, and the sublimated ink molecules are caught between the fiber molecules and fixed on the fabric.


JV5-130S Maximum print width: 1,365 mm (53.7")
JV5-160S Maximum print width: 1,620 mm (63.8")
JV5-320S Maximum print width: 3,290 mm (129.5")
