Mimaki unveils new model to UJF-MkII product line at FESPA 2017

Mimaki has announced a new member to the UJF-MkII family, its latest generation of small format UV flatbed printers, which will be unveiled at FESPA 2017.

The UJF-3042MkII EX offers a unique approach to value-added printing by combining four steps into one: delivering the ability to place primer for strong ink adhesion, white ink for high print opacity, full colour CMYK printing and a clear print surface treatment, all in one operation.

At FESPA 2017, which is scheduled for May 8-12 in Hamburg, Germany, Mimaki Europe will be showing this new printer on its stand in the Digital Hall, where it will also be demonstrating a wide range of solutions for the sign graphics market and industrial print. The company will also have a presence in the Textile Hall, demonstrating its long-time commitment to the textile industry.

“We’ve had great reception to our UJF-MkII UV-curable flatbed printing systems since we launched them last summer,” said Ronald van den Broek, GM sales of Mimaki EMEA.“The new addition to this outstanding family of printers raises the bar even more, making it extremely easy to produce high-value-add print."

"In a single operation, the UJF-3042MkII EX can lay down a base coat of inkjet primer, a base print of white ink, full color print and a surface coating of clear ink. This adds up to a highly efficient way to produce the value-added printing applications that are growing in popularity among marketers and other buyers of print.” 

The compressed workflow includes:

  • Inkjet primer to improve ink adhesion, important in cases where inkjet adhesion is less than desired.  The Mimaki PR-200 primer can be used on resin, glass and metal materials.
  • White ink with high opacity enables more vivid expression of full color, especially on dark or transparent substrates. Two bottles of white ink can be attached to the printer to achieve high density white print in a shorter time with more opacity.
  • Clear ink, with either glossy or matte effects can add texture and depth. Clear ink can be laid down in multiple layers for an embossed effect.

As part of Mimaki’s dedication to delivering environmentally sustainable solutions, the company renews its Greenguard and Greenguard Gold certifications.

Mimaki has Greenguard and Greenguard Gold certifications for the UV-curable inks used in its UJF-3042MkII, UJF-6042MkII and UJF-3042MkII EX printers, including LH-100, LUS-120, LUS-150 UV curable inks. The certification also applies to Mimaki’s LUS-200 UV-curable ink; LX-101 Latex ink; and SS21, Mimaki’s most popular solvent ink.
