New Mimaki JFX200-2531 offers larger printing area and productivity enhancements

Increased throughput with “mount while print” toggle function

Amsterdam, August 31, 2016

JFX200-2531Mimaki today announced the availability of a new model in its popular JFX200 product family. The UV-LED flatbed JFX200-2531 builds on the success of the entry level JFX200-2513 model with twice the printing area and a unique “toggle print” function that increases throughput by allowing operators to mount one board while another is printing.

“The current JFX200-2513 has seen great receptivity in the market,” said 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.

In addition, the JFX200-2531 features:

  • Stable media handling for improved image quality and an ionizer that eliminates electrostatic discharge that can affect image quality.
  • A standard vacuum pedal for hands-free operation of the media vacuum power.
  • An anti-banding function and variable dot printing for smooth images.
  • A wide range of ink types 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 ideal for outdoor applications with resistance to sun, rain and other weather conditions; and
    • LUS-350 ink, a unique, stretchable ink suitable for a wide range of thermoforming applications that can 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. Now, Let’s Create … Together!”
