Mimaki has unveiled the new JFX500-2131, a next-generation high-speed UV-LED flatbed inkjet printer.
Equipped with newly developed printheads, the JFX500-2131 offers excellent output – up to 60m2/h in four-colour mode, and up to 50m2/h with white ink. The JFX500-2131 delivers highly detailed printing down to 2pt characters.
The large-sized flatbed – 2,100mm x 3,100mm – enables direct printing on a wide range of materials up to a 100mm high. Meanwhile the UV-LED curing unit ensures significantly improved curing-efficiency – high-speed printing is now possible without leaving uncured ink behind. And there’s a wide choice of hard or flexible inks to suit every job.
The environment benefits too, as the system uses eco-friendly, energy-saving, longer-lasting LEDs. And almost no VOCs are generated by UV-curing printing. Plus the printing process is more efficient, as larger-sized substrates can be used.
Alignment accuracy is everything with flatbed printers. However, adjusting by millimetres can prove challenging. This is where the Easy Direct Print System comes in – it uses a dedicated camera and software (a plug-in for Raster Link 6) to read and automatically adjust the misalignment.
And because printing data is automatically adjusted against the set jig, accurate print results are achieved even if the setting was roughly implemented.
