Higher image quality than ever before

Ball/Screw drive linier actuator technology allows for dot placement and image quality with precision accuracy

Adopted a unique ball screw type head conveyance mechanism that had been equipped only in high-end machines. It improved the accuracy of the ink drop onto the substrate. This precise ink dot placement can prevent bandings substantially.

Furthermore, a high resolution print mode of 1,800 x 1,800 dpi has been added to achieve highly precise printing output.

Smooth and beautiful gradation achieved by Mimaki's unique head control technique

Variable drops function provides 3 different drop sizes at once.
The minimum size is amazingly 4 pico-litter and ensures a photographic type image offering smooth gradation patterns and brilliant transitions of many color layers even in the 4-color mode.

Ecological & economical applications of white ink

Ecological & economical applications of white ink

MCT (Mimaki Circulation Technology) was developed and designed to circulate the white ink formulations to improve stability and dispersions of the pigments in the fluid reservoir and ink path.
Advantages of less white ink maintenance down time and avoids clogging issues while in the bulk ink receptacle and overall jetting of the white UV LED inks.
* MCT works only with white ink.

Automatic primer application function

Usually primers are applied separately in a manual application process, but the UJF-6042 incorporates an automatic primer application function. The new inkjet primer cartridges are simply inserted into the corresponding ink slot, enabling the primer to specifically target the print image area only.
* Inkjet primer cannot be used in conjunction with LF-200 inks.

* Inkjet primer cannot be used in conjunction with LF-200 inks.

Nozzle recovery function

Even if nozzle washing has no effect on a troubled nozzle, the print image quality can be retained immediately.
During this nozzle downtime, this nozzle recovery function enables printer to produce high quality prints continuously without slowing down the printing process.

Multiple UV ink type options to fulfill your requirements

Three types of UV ink are available to achieve the best print results on a wide range of applications.
In addition, eight ink slots enable various ink configurations, such as 6 colors plus white and
clear. Furthermore by printing different layers of ink and/or gloss, your images will not only look more enticing but also will have a raised / embossed quality that will satisfy your customers.

“3D Lenticular” achieved by high definition

This printer can discharge minimum 4pl ink dots in 1,800×1,800dpi. It enables lenticular printing by 3D lens of 100 lpi which had been deemed difficult to accomplish for the existing digital printer.
* lpi = line per inch
* For 3D lenticular printing, dedicated software for data creation and 3D lens are required separately.

“Etching process” creates unique textures on metals

Etching is a surface treatment which utilizes the corrosion action of metal. thru chemicals.
The area which should not be corroded is covered with a mask of UV ink. Then the substrate is immersed into the corrosion solution to be corroded. With such treatment, you can achieve high quality textures, and permanent engraving.
