Mimaki Engineering has announced that it introduced the enhanced version of the JV33 series at C!Print in Lyon, France. In the run up to FESPA Digital 2014, Mimaki presented the French market with an exclusive launch of the enhanced solvent JV33, Mimaki’s work horse in its solvent inkjet product line.
‘Salon C!Print is co-located with CTCO for promotional products and promotional textiles,’ said Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA, Mimaki Europe B.V.. ‘Visitors to our booth saw solutions that are applicable to promotional products and textiles as well. But above all, we were very excited about introducing the updated version of our industry leading JV33 solvent inkjet printer, which will give our customers more speed and quality for the same price. We are very excited to hear the feedback of our C!Print visitors!’
Mimaki also participated in NOVA Live, located at the centre of the hall. NOVA Live showcased live technical demonstrations and many applications created by the exhibitors. Mimaki was printing with its TS34-1800A dye sublimation printer on sublimation paper which will then be further processed by other exhibitors to create a finished product.
The new JV33 is an updated version of Mimaki’s top selling JV33 roll-to-roll series of solvent inkjet products. With the exclusive launch of this new development at C!Print, the show attendees were the first to view this exciting new product.
A key enhancement is the addition of Mimaki Advanced Pass System (MAPS) technology, which is an innovative approach to discharging ink droplets to minimise, or even eliminate, banding in high production mode. MAPS is highly configurable to adjust the jetting process to meet specific production needs including adjustments to print speeds. The MAPS system will allow at least a 10 percent speed increase to the already fast printing solution and will function with all ink sets.
Mimaki also demonstrated the personalisation of promotional products at the show. This included personalisation of promotional products using Mimaki’s UJF-3042 and UJF-6042. These UV flatbed printers with LED curing and multiple ink options print in near photo quality directly on substrates up to 150mm thick with a precise and vivid image quality that is normally only found in more costly printers. These printers support six colours
