Mimaki is running a number of Open Day Events in; Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to show case its new UCJV Series.
The Open Houses are scheduled for:
• Sydney 16th-17th November, at Unit 14, 38-46 South St, Rydalmere NSW 2116 (contact John Bryson 0456 965 701),
• Melbourne 22nd-23rd November, at Unit 7, 3-4 Anzed Court, Mulgrave, VIC 3170 (contact Craig Nanscawen 0427 115 845), and
• Brisbane 29th-30th November, at 2B/54 Riverside Place, Morningside, QLD 4170 (Chris Dutkowski 0437 800 705)
The UCJV300-160 model, which was launched at Visual Impact 2017, can produce a wide variety of applications, from backlits to window clings and nearly anything in between. UV-LED curing technology enables print service providers to use a wider range of media that may be too sensitive for latex or solvent systems that require heat to fix the ink.
One Graphic, Two Views:
Four-layer printing, colour, black, white, colour offers an enhanced print capability that allows designers to build layered transformative graphics for backlit applications. This provides a dynamic graphic that ‘changes’ its image or colour scheme depending on the light source.
Integrated Cutting Capability:
The integrated cut functionality enables volume production of labels, decals, window clings, floor graphics, POP displays, vehicle markings, packaging and prototypes, and more in a single unit. Additionally, the ability to pre-cut before printing prevents common problems such as film separation and other issues related to post-cutting on thin materials.
Instant-dry for Instant Use:
The prints are instantly-cured at even the highest production speeds, eliminating the need for additional finishing, reducing time to sale and providing additional cost savings.
UV-curable White Ink:
The use of UV-curable inks delivers greater opacity with less ink consumption per square foot of coverage while maintaining image vibrancy and density. High opacity white ink also enables block out printing within a single print, enabling the efficient creation of window graphics that can be viewed differently from either side, as in a PUSH / PULL door sign.
ID Cut Function in RasterLink6 Plus Software:
The UCJV Series comes with updated RasterLink6 plus software that includes an ID Cut function to make printing and cutting easier and faster. Along with registration marks, RasterLink6 plus software will include a bar code on the print, automating the cutting process. This function is particularly useful when running nested print-cut jobs, as the printer continuously reads the data for both single and ganged jobs.
