New Mimaki JFX200 for 2017 will be bigger better faster

September 06, 2016

Mimaki has announced a new JFX200-2531 flatbed printer for 2017 with a print area twice the size of its predecessor and a unique “toggle print” function that increases productivity and improves continuous running capability by allowing operators to load one board while another is printing.

“The current JFX200-2513 has seen great receptivity in the market,” says Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing of Mimaki EMEA. “But our customers are always looking for more! And in this case, they asked for the same great performance but with a larger table. The JFX200-2531 meets that requirement with twice the printing area. And we even took it a step further by including the “toggle print” ability for continuous operation and increased throughput.”

The new large flatbed UV-curable inkjet printer is compatible with media as large as 2.5 x 3.1 metres, increasing the application range to accommodate large signs, wall decorations, doors and other large items. It can also accommodate two signage boards of the popular size of 1,220 mm × 2,440 mm (4 ft × 8 ft), allowing organisations to benefit from the added productivity enabled by the toggle print function. “The JFX200-2531 is the ideal flatbed printer for growing sign and display companies,” Horsten added.

Additional features of the new JFX200-2531 include improved media handling and an ioniser that eliminates electrostatic discharge which can affect image quality. Anti-banding functions and variable dot printing also contribute to the creation of smooth, exceptionally high-quality images. Finally, a vacuum pedal is now included as standard for hands-free operation of the media vacuum function.

A wide range of inksets are also available to accommodate the broadest range of applications, including LH-100 scratch resistant ink, LUS-120 and LUS-150 inks suitable for printing on soft materials, LUS-200 ink which is ideal for outdoor applications with its superior resistance to sun, rain and other adverse weather conditions and LUS-350 ink; a unique, stretchable ink suitable for a wide range of thermoforming applications, with the ability to stretch up to 350% without cracking.

“Our customers talked, and we listened,” Horsten concluded. “We think they will be extremely pleased with this new printer and the capabilities we have added.”
