Mimaki USA, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, today announced new Metallic UV ink is available for its award-winning UJF-7151 plus benchtop UV-LED flatbed printer. Examples of Metallic ink applications will be on display in the Mimaki USA booth 5216 at the PRINTING United show in Dallas, October 23-25, 2019.

Metallic ink can be used to create high value-added imaged products,” said Michael Maxwell, senior manager at Mimaki USA. “Metallic color effects are in high demand for personalized products, awards, novelty items and custom packaging; Metallic ink provides a strong competitive edge to Mimaki customers, enabling them to offer high-quality, premium finishes for their clients projects.”

With this new ink the UJF-7151 plus printer can directly image a surface without the need for added glitter or a foil transfer process. The ability to print in gloss and matte finishes, and an emboss effect are also available, as well as the ability to create a wide range of metallic color effects.

Key features

Mimaki Metallic Control (MMC) technology prints both gloss and matte finishes. Based on Mimaki Clear Control – an original surface imaging technology – MMC enables printing of these two surface finishes using only one ink. Users can select gloss tone print with a shiny mirror finish or a matte tone print that delivers a lustrous effect while limiting reflectivity.

A textured embossing effect can be applied, which changes with light reflection and offers the ability to create unique finishes.

Metallic color effects can be created using Metallic ink and RasterLink6 RIP software, which includes a swatch palette of 648 metallic colors that are easily selectable from Illustrator® software and can be utilized in a near-endless combination of custom colors.
