Print quality, efficiency and cost effectiveness

 
Variable dot delivers smooth gradation for high resolution image quality

  • To reduce a grainy appearance, the 3 most optimum drop sizes (7pl minimum) are automatically selected, depending on the print mode
  • Grainy appearance is also reduced by using the 900x1200dpi high resolution print mode available for high quality printing

  • Up to 2 rolls, maximum width of 1,524mm each
  • Media with different widths can be used
  • Maximum roll weight is 100kg
  • Handle different jobs at the same time: different data can be assigned to each roll of media
  • Both rolls should at least have the same thickness level and be printable with the same profiling

Ink supply and configuration

  • High productivity, low ink consumption, and excellent cost performance
  • Uses eco-solvent CS100 2L supplied ink (CMYK), which remains weather resistant after three years. More affordable than conventional ink cartridges, it has exceptional stability and low propensity to clog nozzles.
  • Newly-developed ink tank contains max. of 3L ink per colour which can be filled at once for longer production runs with less interaction

Optimised media feeding for uninterrupted printing

  • Heavy duty media feed system enhances operation efficiency
  • Head carriage equipped with two media jam sensors to detect wrinkled or draped media surface, preventing damage to print heads, a head strike or media jam
  • Pinch rollers with high-accuracy and high-grip ensure stable media feeding and reduces uneven colour printing due to misalignment and banding
  • Newly designed tension bar and take-up system for stable media feeding
  • Constant tension on media even after the media roll diameter changes guarantees high-definition printing










Mimaki’s Core Technologies

 
Mimaki Advanced Pass System (MAPS 4)

  • Reduction of banding, even at higher speed
  • Disperses ink drops overlapping the passes, preventing uneven uneven ink drying and bi-directional stripes
  • MAPS4 works in the higher pass modes of each resolution, delivering stable high quality printing
  • Print operator is able to use parameters for optimal speed / quality












Nozzle Recovery System (NRS)

  • Mimaki’s NRS enables replacement of clogged nozzles with open available nozzles, reducing printer interruption, production loss and poor image quality
  • When the print operator detects a clogged nozzle, the missing nozzle can be replaced automatically or manually
  • Makes printing possible even if nozzles are missing
  • This NRS feature increases uptime and postpones service intervention
















Mimaki Rasterlink6Rasterlink6 Plus for intuitive operation

  • Rasterlink6 Plus is Mimaki’s own RIP (Raster Image Processor) software
  • 16-bit rendering for smooth gradation
  • Accurate ink consumption calculation
  • Twin roll printing layout
  • Choice of multiple profiles in one job for testing new media
  • All information on one screen: the status of the printer, print job and progress of the ripping can be checked at a glance
  • Nesting or composition of job are displayed visually
  • Up to 30 settings can be registered and frequently used settings set as “favourites”
  • Industry standard PANTONE colour libraries are included for the most accurate colour reproduction
  • Spot colour control: create and manage custom spot colour libraries
  • Colour replacement: replace colours with custom values, or use values from a spectrophotometer after measuring the desired colour
  • Estimated completion time display
