UJV500-160 The Next Generation of Speed and Quality
UJV500-160 features energy-saving UV-LED curing, with long-lasting UV-LED units. In combination with the brand-new UV inks.
Its fast throughput, cost-effective and environmentally friendly curing, and the 3M MCS warranted inks, the UJV500-160 delivers a print result that is dry and immediately ready for the next step in the process.
The LUS-200 inks are flexible and are ideal for applications with curved surfaces. Such as vehicle wraps and fleet graphics, where stretching can result in breaking with other UV inks.
The availability of white inks, with the LUS-150 inks, for roll-to-roll printing with the UJV500-160 will enhance the possibilities of this printer even more.
Making it possible to create truly vibrant prints on transparent substrates using an under, or over layer of white ink.
The UJV500-160 delivers •••
- High speed printing of maximum 100m2/h
- LED-UV Curing Unit enables high-speed printing
- Three new flexible UV inks: LUS150, LUS120 and LUS200
- Most environmentally friendly solution for large format printing

Features of UJV500-160
Max Print Speed 60㎡/h with the newly developed print head
The UJV500-160 can print at high speeds up to 60 ㎡/h. A speed of 24 ㎡/h can be reached while printing with white ink. The number of print heads and nozzles has been updated. The six 2 inch print heads are aligned in a staggered array, which is optimized to eject ink effectively. 1 head＝1,280 nozzles (320 nozzles X 4 rows), In total: 7,680 nozzles (1,280 nozzle X 6 heads)
Newly developed LED-UV Unit
Curing efficiency has been improved due to renovating the LED-UV unit. In addition to being long-lasting and energy-saving, LED UV lamps do not generate excessive heat.
This enables printing onto a wider range of materials, including heat-sensitive substrates, without media deformation.
LUS-150, High speed UV LED ink
LUS-150 has the best curing property for high speed printing. This ink offers improved curing times resulting in a less tactile sticky feeling. This ink is flexible up to 150% resulting in
increased elasticity and bending performance on a wide variety of media and substrates with little cracking. Additionally, white ink allows for printing on transparent film for window graphics.
* LUS = LED UV Stretchable ink * As the flexibility of LUS-150 ink may vary according to the substrate, please verify your substrate in advance.
LUS-200 ink, open up new possibilities in inkjet signage
The new UV ink ”LUS-200”, which has been jointly-developed with 3M, can stretch up to 200% after curing. Since stretching will not crack the image, the LUS-200 ink is ideal for applications with curved surfaces such as vehicle wraps.
Having an outdoor durability in warranty (*) allows for installation of printed materials in places where regular maintenance is not possible, without worrying about deterioration. Additionally, applications with severe standards for outdoor durability can now be achieved.
* Warranty periods vary based on type of application, type of media, and graphic protection. The 3M warranty is only applicable for Japan.
“MAPS” ‒ a mask pattern that reduces banding
In addition to the normal pattern, you can select “MAPS” which effectively reduces banding. MAPS implements printing in a gradational mask pattern and diminishes the appearance of banding.
* Depending on the setting of MAPS, print speed varies. (MAPS = MImaki Advanced Pass System)
Mimaki’s unique head control technique
Variable dot printing ejects ink drops in 3 different dot sizes. This smooth gradation without granular appearance is even achieved with 4-color printing.
Refined, environmentally friendly functions
- Low VOCs & Ozone-Free: UV curing generates minimal VOCs. LED UV ink is ozone-free.
- Power saving, long lasting LED–UV lamp: The LED-UV lamp generates very little heat. Unlike metal halide lamps,
LED-UV lamps light up only where the image is printed, which leads to cost-effective production. As the life of the lamp is very long, both environmentally-friendly and economical production is supported.
- Ink supplied in bottles: Each UV ink is supplied in a high-capacity bottle instead of a cartridge. This economical and ecological package contributes to reduce the amount of industrial waste and running costs.
