Mimaki USA announced the new generation of the UJF Mark II Series UV-LED printers. The two new models, UJF-3042 and UJF-6042, now appear with a tabletop, which defers with the former models, which needed a separated table. We at FLAAR Reports have seen over several years these former models as an innovative technology, since the original 3042FX was able to print materials up to 2” thick, and the next generation that came along, the HG model, had a printing thickness of 6”.
The printing thickness of 6” is the same for the new Mark II series, with the difference of a fully enclosed print area, which reduces the chance of dust or other airborne particle contamination, reducing re-prints and ensuring production, stays on track. It also enables placement in demanding environments such as a production floor and a highly accurate ball screw drive that reduces vibration for increased ink drop accuracy.
Ink sets for the UJF Mark II Series printers include LUS-120 ink for flexibility and scratch resistance, LH-100 ink for high scratch and chemical resistance, and LUS-150 ink for balanced adhesion and flexibility that will be available in the future.
This series includes features that enable users from promotional and personalization item printers, makers, technologists, educators and manufacturers to realize the benefits of digital printing with higher margins and lower production costs, without compromising quality.
The Mark II series printers were presented at SGIA 2016, this past September in Las Vegas, Nevada where we saw and inspected them. We will be expanding information on more specific features in our UV-Curing Printers TRENDs Report from this show, along with all the new UV technology SGIA had to offer.
