Inkcups Now Corporation, an official servicing dealer for Mimaki USA, Inc., has expanded its offering of the Mimaki line of large format inkjet printers to include the Mimaki JF series. The Mimaki JF series inkjet printers are designed for printing high quality sign and POP display graphics for both long distance and close-up viewing. The Mimaki JF can print on irregular or uneven surfaces with a height of up to 2 inches; the inkjet printer can also print on multiple objects at once.
The Mimaki JF is a flatbed UV printer with an inkjet resolution of 1200 X 1200 dpi (nearly photographic quality.) The Mimaki JF series comes in two models: The Mimaki JF 1610 & JF 1631. The primary difference between the two models is the maximum image size (the JF 1610: 1600mm x 1016mm; JF 1631: 1600mm x 3100mm.) The Mimaki JF inkjet printers use UV ink to decorate a broad range of substrates, including uncoated corrugated plastics and acrylics. The JF series are equipped with dual UV lamps in order to maximize speed. The lamps allow higher production speeds with bidirectional printing. The inks are cured during the printing process so the decorated products can be used immediately after printing. The Mimaki JF series uses high performance RIP software that is easy to use.
Additional features that the Mimaki JF series large format inkjet printers provide give the operator added convenience to use the inkjet printer with as much ease as possible. The Mimaki JF series has a vacuum table with two modes and six zones that can be activated separately: in the vacuum pressure mode, the table effectively holds down the media while printing, in the reverse mode, the air stream lifts the material, enabling the operator to easily move and align heavy and bulky substrates. The Mimaki flatbed printers also contain a roll hanger, which is used for easily maneuvering flexible or rolled substrates. Jam-detecting sensors are also implanted inside of the printer in order to prevent head crushing.
