Latex and Solvent UV Print Mimaki Solutions at drupa 2012

Mimaki is to present its latest Latex and solvent print solutions at drupa 2012. The company will also unveil its new high-gap UV-LED flatbed printer. Delegates visiting the stand will see the high-speed, high-quality JV400LX series, which uses environmentally friendly latex ink, including the world’s first white latex ink. Also on show will be the JV400SUV series, which combines the flexibility of solvent printing with the durability of UV-curing inks.

Both systems employ Mimaki’s easy-to-use RIP, RasterLink6, which enables three ink layers in one pass with white and colour inks. And they offer outstanding print speed without compromising quality. The systems can print up to 18.1 m2/h , while a minimum dot size of 4 picoliters and the ability to use variable-sized ink dots ensures smooth gradation without a grainy appearance.

The advanced system opens up new opportunities by enabling print houses to print on a wider range of substrates. Other benefits include a new white ink circulation system that prevents pigment sedimentation, and a nozzle recovery function that temporarily restores print quality if a maintenance issue should arise. Plus it enhances print service providers’ green credentials thanks to its small environmental footprint and long-life, low power consumption. Mimaki Europe has experienced a lot of European interest in this next generation printer after its introduction at the 2012 Fespa Digital show in Barcelona.
The UJF-3042HG desktop flatbed printer will also take the stage at drupa. The new High Gap (HG) version can print up to 15cm-high objects, making it ideal for the promotional, trophy and commercial proofing markets. It offers multiple ink combinations like six- colours plus white and clear, but also an automatic priming feature, allowing to retain the look and feel of the substrates, while equally reducing time spent on manual priming and waste.

Other Mimaki UV flatbed printers on view at drupa are the UJF-3042FX and the wide format flatbed range, the Mimaki JFX series. The UJF-3042FX prints directly on materials up to 5cm thick, with outstanding print quality of up to 1440 x 1200 dpi and the energy-efficient LED curing. Meanwhile the JFX features high-precision printing at great speeds with a large production capability.

Mike Horsten, Marketing Manager of Mimaki Europe , comments: “Drupa 2012 is the perfect stage for us. Not only can we now present our updated product portfolio, with Latex, SUV and the great flatbed family, allowing us to serve almost the entire Commercial printing markets, but our drupa participation also reinstates the leading role we have in the solvent printing market. We’re really looking forward to showing visitors how they can add value to their day-to-day services, whether that’s producing every-day items or delivering more niche products like high-quality specialist labels in volume.”
Mimaki’s product development strategy is underpinned by a strong commitment to sustainability. Adds Horsten: “We design every new system with the smallest environmental footprint possible, by adopting advanced technologies such as low-power consumption LED curing, lowering the Latex curing temperature and reducing energy consumption on many models. Mimaki cares about producing sustainable printing solutions for use around the world”.

With nyloflex FTL Digital Flint Group announced the launch of a very low durometer flat top dot flexographic printing plate for printing on sustainable substrates with a higher content of recycled fibers and other paper and board applications in combination with water based inks. The core advantage of this new plate is the out-of-the-box reliable performance in fluting reduction in corrugated post-print e.g. delivering a very appealing print performance on substrates like uncoated test liners or kraft liners in combination with a B flute.

Baumer hhs introduces its compact and intuitive Xact controller, whose range of functions is geared entirely to automated gluing. The controller incorporates the latest software and hardware technology, giving customers maximum flexibility. They can run all of their Baumer hhs hot melt and cold glue application heads on the Xact and implement both simple and complex gluing applications cost-efficiently. Short setup times and high reliability make the new controller the ideal solution for high-precision gluing in many areas of folding carton production, end-of-line packaging and print finishing.
