Mimaki introduces UV curable JFX-1631 flatbed printer

Mimaki Engineering Co Ltd has launched a new fast, high quality large-format UV curable flatbed inkjet printer JFX-1631 incorporating latest UV LED curing technology and high-precision linear micro stepping. This new model features low power consumption UV LED curing system as well as enhanced image quality.

Heat reduction: UV LED curing system in JFX-1631 reduces the amount of heat generated and it allows the printer to support a broader range of heat-sensitive media, such as foam and channel boards, PVC, acrylic and styrene panels. As long as UV ray irradiated from UV LED instantaneously cures ink, the need for post-printing drying time required in case of solvent and other inks is totally eliminated and improves job turnaround time considerably.

New advantage: This groundbreaking eco-friendly inkjet printer incorporates advanced functionalities. Compared with conventional metal halide lamps, UV LED saves two-thirds of energy consumption and life span of LED is five times longer than that of conventional UV lamps. Another decisive benefit of UV LED technology is the fact that UV LED does not need any warm-up time.

Better clarity: JFX-1631 incorporates eight new printheads to achieve a print speed twice than that of the previous models. The new head positioning system uses high-resolution linear motors for ultra fine step accuracy of dot placement. Two types of UV inks are available, flexible and hard, for a wide range of printing applications. White hard ink is also available to enable vivid full-colour printing on transparent and coloured materials.
