Features of JFXplus Series
The Mimaki JFXplus series employs UV LED printing technology, which does not generate excessive heat, allowing the machine to print directly on a wide range of substrates, including heat-sensitive materials, without any media deformation.
No drying time, immediately ready for post-processing
Aqueous or solvent inks require post printing drying. This is eliminated using UV technology and consequently, the media is ready for laminating immediately after printing. The job turnaround time from printing to processing is shortened and improves work efficiency and productivity.
Intelligent Microstepping System (IMS)
The IMS uses high resolution linear scale for fine step accuracy of dot placement. This results in far fewer banding and even the possibility to print legible 3-point characters.
High Resolution up to 1200dpi and Variable Drops
High image quality is achieved by utilising a resolution up to 1200 x 1200 dpi and variable dot sizes. Even printing in 4-colour mode realises a non-grainy print, thus prints show smooth gradations and highly detailed images.
Fast printing with post-curing unit
The JFX plus is equipped with a post-curing unit that cures the print after its first exposure by UV LEDs, thus enabling nearly double the speed as previous models. This caters the needs for fast turnarounds, quick changes, and short run orders while increasing productivity and efficiency at the same time.
* The print size of JFXplus is slightly reduced when using post-curing unit. Please contact us for more info.
Three Types of UV Curable Ink
Three types of ink are available for the JFXplus series. LH-100 hard UV ink excels in scratch and chemical resistance as well as in colour reproduction; LF-200 flexible UV ink enables stretching of ink up to 200% during post-processing work; LF-140 offers strong gradation in 6-colour printing and is more flexible than LH-100 ink.
A. 4/6 colours only
Without white ink as a basis for overprinting, the colours are not as vivid as they should be.
B.4/6 colours + white
With the white ink overlay print, the images are bright and vivid.
Stunning effects with clear ink
Add value to your prints by using clear ink to create beautiful glossy, matte, or embossed finish–as well as to further protect your image.
Automatic Primer Application Function
Both printers incorporate an automatic primer feature, simplifying pre-priming process, which is traditionally done manually by wiping or spraying. Mimaki’s inkjet primer cartridge is simply inserted into the corresponding ink slot of JFX-Plus, enabling the primer to specifically target the print image area only.
*Always test your intended materials before using primer. When printing with primer and white / clear ink, production speed is reduced to some extent.
Two sizes available
JFXplus series is available in two models: JFX-1631plus with a print area of 160 x 310 cm and JFX-1615plus with 160 x 150 cm.
Printing on both roll substrates and roll media
JFXplus also answers the demand of print service providers for hybrid printing on roll media. With the optional roll unit, this UV LED flatbed inkjet printer series can print page-to-page on roll media.
- UV LEDs have longer life and consume less energy than conventional UV lamps
- Less transfer waste and no wasted inventory by printing on-demand, direct-to-substrate
- No noticeable odour and no excessive noise
