According to Mimaki, China, Taiwan, Russia, Korea, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa are experiencing a surge in wide format application jobs, and the need to produce short run jobs on a wide variety of media has created room in these markets for a wide format printer that could master miscellaneous jobs at a high pace at exceptional quality.

Mimaki has therefore launched the LED-UV curing inkjet printer SIJ-320UV, a 3.2m wide format printer developed specifically to support the needs of wide format print service providers in the above mentioned regions. This dedicated roll-to-roll printer has been developed for various signage media, including PVC and other banner materials. Mimaki also introduces the versatile LUS-120 UV ink, offering printers the flexibility and durability required for signage jobs. The ink delivers durable printing results at all times, even on soft media such as (non-laminated) banner materials.

That way, printers can simultaneously handle two different jobs on one machine. The patented dithering Mimaki Fine Diffusion 1 technology (MFD1) processes image data while safeguarding the original image quality. The technology is included in the Rasterlink 6 RIP software and reduces noise.

Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe, comments on the new launch: “This machine is as versatile and flexible as the printers it is designed for in these regions. State-of-the-art Mimaki technology combined with durable and outstanding ink colour reproduction will make sure they can timely tailor each print job to the needs and quality standards of their customers.”
