Mimaki has announced the upcoming launch of the JFX200-2513; a large format flatbed UV inkjet printer. It can print up to 25 square metres per hour on materials up to 4 feet by 8 feet (2,500 x 1,300 mm) in size and up to 50 mm thick.
This printer's compact footprint, eco-friendly LED curing and attractive price point make it ideal for businesses in the sign and display graphics industry that wish to affordably expand their range of services, claim Mimaki.
"We are extremely pleased to add the JFX200-2513 to our broad portfolio of UV inkjet large format printers," says Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing for Mimaki Europe. "It is designed based on customer input as an entry level printer with extreme ease of use but also incorporates many of the advanced features that Mimaki is known for in the sign and display graphics industry."
The printer is offered with multiple ink types that support a wide range of materials and applications. These include LH-100, a hard UV cure ink with high rub and chemical resistance with excellent colour fidelity. Mimaki's LUS-150 is a low-cost UV cure ink with suppleness that extends to 150% without cracking for materials to be applied to curved surfaces. Finally, Mimaki PR-100 is a primer ink that can be used as a pre-treatment agent to improve ink adhesion on difficult surfaces. The ink is available in 1-litre ink bottles for reduced ink costs.
The Mimaki JFX200-2513 features variable dot function that assures a high quality print by jetting three ink dot sizes at once. The printer also features a white ink for brilliant images, compelling backlit graphics and other items printed on transparent materials. It also has Mimaki Circulation Technology which eliminates issues with white ink sedimentation.
Mike Lewis of Mimaki's exclusive UK and Irish distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd said; "The launch of the JFX200-2513 delivers a printer specifically designed for the requirements of our market and combines the typical print and build quality normally associated with Mimaki with a format to suit the majority of our customer base."
