Mimaki Engineering Co Ltd. has announced that the enhanced version of its UV LED curing hybrid printer UJV-160 for roll and rigid substrates now features substantially more robust tables that can accommodate heavier media weights.

The flexible inks that have been developed jointly with 3M Corporation stretch up to 200 percent thus enabling printing and post-processing including bending without ink cracks for applications such as fleet markings and vehicle wraps. In addition Mimaki has developed hard UV LED curing ink.

ujv160.jpgThe upgraded UJV-160 now announced can accommodate rigid media of up to 12 kg (until recently 2 kg) thus providing for print on substrates such as acrylic and aluminium compound boards used by the signage and display industry. With this upgrade Mimaki broadens the application possibilities of UJV-160 even further.

As rigid substrates are quite often subject to abrasion and scoring Mimaki has developed, in addition to its flexible ink (LF-200), its new hard UV LED curing ink LH-100. The UJV-160's individual white overlay function enables vivid and precise prints on coloured substrates as well as transparent media.

Mimaki offers ink containers with 600 ml content that enable print service providers to spend up to 30 to 40% less on ink costs. Users can reduce their environmental footprint even further by adopting these reusable Eco-packaging causing in far less waste.

Furthermore 3M Corporation offers its highest stage of warranty, the MCS (Matched Component System)-warranty for the improved UJV-160 version when printing with flexible UV LED inks (LF-200) and 3M media.
