Mimaki is launching its latest generation of small format UV flatbed printers that can print on anything at FESPA 2017. The addition of the new UJF-3042MkII EX to the UJF-MkII range offers unique opportunities for companies looking for a direct to object printer that can deliver real value-added functionality.

The new UJF-3042MkII EX adds more features to the standard model for higher performance and ease of use and offers a unique approach to value-added printing by combining four steps into one: delivering the ability to place primer for strong ink adhesion, white ink for high print opacity, full colour CMYK printing and a clear print surface treatment, all in one operation. 

UJF 3042MkIIEX MainVisual resizedThe UJF-MkII UV curable flatbed printing systems were launched last summer and have been very well received by the market since their introduction. Mimaki has identified the opportunity to raise the bar even further with the new model, enabling in a single operation; the laying down, where required, of a base coat of inkjet primer, a base print of white ink, full colour print and a surface coating of clear ink, adding up to an efficient means of producing value-added promotional printing applications.

Mimaki’s clear ink, with either glossy or matte effects, can add texture and depth to prints. It can be laid down in multiple layers for an embossed effect and can be used with Mimaki’s texture library as part of the Mimaki RasterLink6 RIP software which offers 129 different textures that can be displayed as swatches in Adobe Illustrator. Application of these textures with clear ink can deliver more elaborate designs, such as a floral motifs or other patterns that add even greater value to the printed piece.

Mimaki Europe will have two stands at FESPA, and is set to show the new printer on its stand in the Digital Hall (Stand A1-A25), where it will also be demonstrating a wide range of solutions for the sign and graphics market and industrial print.
