|Next generation Mimaki UJF-7151plus direct-to-object printer
As Mimaki maintains its market innovation commitment to developing solutions that deliver high quality, cost-effective print solutions, the company has proudly announced the launch of the brand new, direct to object UJF 7151 plus industrial small format LED UV Inkjet flatbed printer.
Ensuring high quality printing and top level productivity with ultra-accurate ink droplet placement, the UJF-7151plus has a maximum printable size of 710 x 510mm. This on-demand, industrial, small format printing solution for the screen printing industry improves accuracy, consistency and reliability by modifying the mechanical structure of the print table. Fine lines, edges and small text is displayed crystal clear and the solution also enables double-layer printing and colour printing on a white base layer.
Daily operation is enhanced by the patented MFD1 dithering technology that processes image data along with retaining original image quality and the highly improved quality control MAPS4 reduces banding and uneven colour printing. Uninterrupted printing and reduced waste is aided by new printheads that incorporate a continuous ink circulation system to help prevent ink sedimentation and clogged nozzles, along with a nozzle check unit (NCU) that automatically detects and cleans the clogged nozzles.
“Mimaki has always been a leader in the development of inkjet printers,” states Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe. “Recently, there has been growing demand for digital, on-demand, and plateless inkjet printing because of its ability to quickly provide high-mix and low-volume printing. The high performance UV inkjet printer UJF-7151plus enables high-precision ink dot placement and beautiful printing through Mimaki’s proprietary technology and at top-level productivity. The market is growing - we’re keeping our finger on the pulse to deliver the solutions it needs.”
Key features of the UJF-7151plus include a mechanical structure for high-precision printing and superior print-image quality control technology. Mimaki’s Advanced Pass System 4 (MAPS4) reduces banding and uneven colour printing with blurred boundaries and the Mimaki Fine Diffusion 1 (MFD1) reduces noise due to dithering through hybrid processing of patterns.
The machine’s high print speed is delivered via six staggered printheads to achieve top-level productivity. Uninterrupted workflow as a result of high-stability printing through an ink-circulating mechanism within the head is aided by the use of two proprietary technologies - NCU that automatically detects and recovers clogged nuzzles by cleaning them, thus reducing waste and the NRS reliable operating support package that ensures maximum uptime.
The UJF-7151plus will be available through the specialist reseller network of exclusive UK and Irish Mimaki distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd from November 2015 and the company’s National Sales Manager – Industrial Products, Stuart Cole welcomes the addition to the range. “The UJF-7151plus offers a unique solution that combines peerless print quality with excellent productivity. Its distinctive size, industrial design (including the larger one litre ink bottles) along with cutting edge features set it apart and we’re very confident of a strong initial uptake.”
