Mimaki introduces LA series laminators

Mimaki has a new LA series of wide format, heat-assisted laminators and laminating film to complement its new UCJV series LED UV printer/cutters.

The LA laminators have a maximum temperature of 60˚C to help overlaminate film adhesion, particularly to surfaces printed with UV-curable inks, and reduces the potential for the silvering effect created by pressure sensitive overlaminates.

Due to instant curing, UV inks tend to have a slightly uneven surface which can trap air bubbles during the laminating process, causing silvery specs that can take away from the appearance of the product.

Laminating speeds are up to 7.5m/min. All laminator functions are on one operation panel, with easy access to the pressure handle and foot pedal. Additionally, a take up reel makes it simple for one person to control the entire process.

"Mimaki continues to bring innovative solutions to market that make it faster, easier and more cost effective for sign and display graphics and other businesses to produce outstanding full colour sign and display graphics," commented Mimaki general manager sales EMEA, Ronald Van den Broek of Mimaki Europe.

"This laminating solution is another example of that innovation, and when paired with Mimaki’s new UCJV series of print and cut solutions, provides a turnkey offering that will help companies drive more profit to their bottom lines."

Designed specifically for use with UV-curable inks and LA laminators, Mimaki Vision Laminate 310 (Gloss) film is said to offer fine finishing with a glossy feel while maintaining the colour brightness of the print.

LA Series laminators and films are expected to be available towards the end of 2017. Two models will be available - the 158cm LA-160W and the 170cm LA-170W. Mimaki Vision Laminate 310 will also be available in two sizes - 137cm and 152cm.
