MIH is Mimaki’s patented heating technology for its solvent printers which optimizes ink fixation on the media. It consists of a 3-way (pre-, print- and post-) heater system to maintain the optimal dot gain, via an accurate temperature-controlled ink dot fixation on the media.
The advantage of MIH explained
Both media and ink will be at the ideal temperature to perfectly predict the dot gain of the ink drops and thereby maximizing the image quality at any moment.
MIH not applied
As the dot gain can’t be properly predicted, the image quality is more difficult to predict and may differ between print runs.
