A high added value of clear ink is the "advantage"
Clear ink can be used to improve designs by adding a gloss to printed media. In spite of the advantages of clear ink, a problem that remains is that dust in the workplace can come in contact with the printed media before the ink cures, which may thus spoil the product. The MCC (Mimaki Clear Control) mounted on JFX200-2513 minimizes the ink-curing time to reduce the possibility of dust accumulating on the printed surface. This is accomplished by simultaneous clear ink jetting and UV light radiation, thus producing a glossy clear print with minimum dust. Clear ink can be applied to only a part of the design or to the entire design to provide a high-value-added finish. In addition, simultaneous printing of clear and colored inks can add value while maintaining the same productivity obtained in color and white two-layer printing.
Partial glossy printing
Partial glossy printing can add eye-catching effects to high-quality designs. For example, the freshness of food can be expressed as shown in the picture on the right. The use of clear ink alone can express the idea of superlative quality, as shown in the pictures below.
Glossy printing over the entire surface
Glossy printing by applying clear ink over an entire surface can convey feelings of high quality as shown in the picture. The entire glossy printing of an excellent design can be your strong advantage when producing indoor/outdoor signs that attract people's attention.
High-performance entry-level model
Point①：Perfect size for installation and usage
The JFX200-2513 can be used to print 4'×8' panel boards* that are commonly used in the marketplace. It comes in a compact size for easy installation and provides excellent user-friendliness with high functionality.
Point②：Environmentally friendly LED-UV curing unit
The LED-UV curing unit has an exceptionally long life with lower power consumption. With its low heat output, it can be used with print media susceptible to problems with thermal deformation or discoloration. Producing very low VOCs and very little odor, it is both environmentally friendly and user-friendly, working well in indoor applications such as restaurants. It also produces no potentially destructive ozone during the printing process, which dramatically lessens any potential load on the environment.
Point③：Two-layer print function
Two-layer printing of separate white and full color layers can be done simultaneously. A coating of white ink can be applied evenly at high accuracy to really bring rich and vibrant colors to life on transparent print media.
Point④：Direct-to-media printing onto thick media
Images can be printed out not only onto regular paper media, but also directly onto thick media. The unit prints on media up to 50 mm (1.97 in.) thick to support expansion into a wide variety of print business applications.
Point⑤：Ink supply unit
With the newly developed ink supply unit, 1-L bottles of ink can be inserted into the system and used as is. Ink bottles can be inserted quickly and easily from the front of the printer, speeding up the replacement process.
Point⑥：Vacuum unit/suction valve
The vacuum can be turned ON/OFF quite easily and quickly from the control panel. The control panel can also be used to control two separate partitions in the X-direction of the suction area. The suction valve on the front of the printer enables the area to be controlled rather easily.
High Quality Print
MAPS2: Mask pattern that works to effectively reduce banding
MAPS2(*) is equipped, in addition to the normal mask pattern, to effectively curb banding. Printing applies ink in gradations over several passes using a mask pattern and then uses UV light to harden the ink, both of which work to make banding less visible.
* MAPS2 ＝ Mimaki Advanced Pass System 2
Smooth and beautiful color gradations are created by Mimaki's original head control technology
Variable drops function provides 3 different drop sizes at once. It produces smooth and natural gradation, without granular appearance, even in the 4-color mode.
The perfect UV ink for each material and application
Various UV-curable ink types to satisfy a wide range of application needs. A user can choose an optimum ink depending on materials.
|Rigid UV-curable ink||Stretchable UV-curable ink|
|C, M, Y, K, W, Cl, Pr
*Compatible primer: PR-100 or PR-200
|C, M, Y, K, W, Cl||C, M, Y, K, Lc, Lm, W, Cl, Pr
*Compatible clear ink (Cl): LH-100 ink (Clear), Compatible primer: PR-100 or PR-200
|C, M, Y, K, W||C, M, Y, K, W, Cl|
|The LH-100 ink has a high scratch/chemical resistance and an accurate color reproducibility. This ink is suitable for rigid materials.||The LUS-120 ink has 170% stretchability after curing. Its ink film is very flexible and will not crack during post print processes.||The LUS-150 ink has 150% stretchability after curing and will not crack during post print processes. This ink is compatible with a wide range of materials and has a low degree of tackiness.||The LUS-200 ink has 200% stretchability after curing. The ink film retains the print quality, and will not crack even when printed materials are bent or stretched during post-print processes.||After curing, the LUS-350 ink can stretch up to 350% when heated to between 120 and 200℃. The ink restores its rigidity after cooling to room temperature, while maintaining its molded shape and durability.|
* Optional kit - OPT-J0393:PR100/200KIT FOR JFX200 - is required for using a primer (PR-100/PR-200).
* Stretchability of each stretchable ink may vary depending on materials, please test on actual materials in advance.
Layout pins for exact positioning
Users previously had to be extremely diligent in lining up the position of print media when placing it on the flatbed of the printer to ensure that the media is not tilted from the print surface and that the origin is centered correctly. This printer is now equipped with layout pins and a scale designed to help resolve these issues. The layout pins work to secure the print media in place to prevent it from shifting and the scale can be used to check the position of the print media before printer settings are made, allowing images to be printed without shifting.
Automatic measurement of media thickness
A gap pin in the carriage automatically measures media thickness, however, there is no need to measure thickness by a ruler or Vernier caliper. This helps to perform the job efficiently.
Media jam sensor
To prevent accidents, this printer is equipped with a media jam sensor. This sensor stops operating when safety for operators is threatened, such as when the manually inputted media thickness is wrong or when the displaced media interferes with the carriage. Once operations automatically halt, the carriage can be shifted to a safe position.
MCT: Mimaki Circulation Technology for White Ink
MCT is a standard feature included to effectively avoid the settling of white pigment in the ink lines by regularly circulating the ink. It prevents print troubles and enables stable output from the start of operation. In addition, MCT contributes to reduction of ink waste, thereby supporting environmentally and economically friendly applications.
*MCT is only available for white ink.
（MCT = Mimaki Circulation Technology）
Nozzle Recovery Function for continuous operation
When print problems occur due to a few clogged nozzles, and the nozzle cleaning does not resolve the issue, a conventional printer would have to stop printing and wait for a service person to fix the problem. With the Nozzle Recovery Function, continuous printing is possible by recovering the image quality from a nozzle being removed or taken offline, all without slowing down the machine.
*Recoverability of Nozzle Recovery Function is limited.
Mimaki Green Technology
Mimaki printers employ UV curable inks that produce very low VOCs* and no ozone. The inks also generate very little odor, making them easy on the user and environmentally friendly, without requiring separate ventilation equipment.
*Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
