We’re very excited about the recent launch of the new Mimaki JFX200-2513EX – an 8’ x 4’ flatbed LED UV printer that adds additional features and increased productivity to Mimaki’s current line-up.
“The new Mimaki JFX200 delivers significant speed advances and adds powerful new functionality and features,” says Kaye-Dee Marking’s Managing Director, Christian Simpson. “The JFX Series has always offered impressive performance as a production flatbed printer and is a popular solution for Kaye-Dee customers, so we’re looking forward to putting the new model through its paces.”
Thanks to a new print head configuration, the JFX200-2513EX doubles output speeds when printing with white ink in all print modes and with the addition of a new draft mode, a 280% speed increase, resulting in a maximum speed of 35sq metres per hour.
Renowned for its high quality of output and the creative potential it offers, the JFX200 Series utilises a combination of white, clear and process inks to print to a vast array of rigid substrates using Mimaki’s pioneering LED UV curing technology. Its 2.5m x 1.3m print area maximises the potential for printing to industry standard 8’ x 4’ boards and with a head gap of 50mm and maximum media weight of 250kg, it is capable of printing to a wide variety of materials.
New features incorporate several of Mimaki’s Core Technologies – proprietary innovations designed to deliver optimum print quality and usability with the minimum user intervention. These include the integration of its NCU and NRS systems for automatically detecting and resolving nozzle firing issues and the company’s MAPS system that through the use of an advanced algorithm, prints optimum gradation patterns on each pass, significantly reducing any ‘banding’ effects in the print.
A foot pedal has been added to control the table vacuum and ethernet connectivity allows remote job messaging and the simultaneous connection of multiple printers. The new JFX200-2513EX will also feature a new ‘2.5D Emboss Print’ mode, enabling multiple layers of ink to be printed to add a three-dimensional effect to the print – adding creative, textured finishes that combine colour and smooth, raised surfaces.
“The Mimaki JFX200 will be available for demonstration very soon and we look forward to talking prospective customers through the many creative and technological benefits it offers,” concludes Simpson.
