The Mimaki UJF-3042FX is a versatile and productive small format LED UV printer with myriad applications and capabilities and featuring unique jettable primer, white and clear inks.
The printer is suitable for commercial printers, promotional products companies and signmakers – as well as manufacturing setups – for producing photo quality print onto practically any product. Perfect for branding up and imprinting items, its low energy consumption and durable print mean it delivers the highest quality output in a fraction of the time to a traditional pad or screen print.
This new version offers three ink types. The LH-100 inks excels in scratch & chemical resistance as well as colour reproduction. These are ideal for substrates that do not require bending or folding after printing. The LF-200 ink enables stretching of ink up to 200% during post print processing so the printed image won’t crack or craze. The new LF-140 ink offers strong gradation in 6 colour printing, making it more flexible than LH-100 so less likely to crack.
The UJF-3042FX incorporates a newly developed inkjet print head that perfectly suits the requirements of this compact printer and enables an exceptionally good value for money proposition. Its cost-effective features include very low energy consumption through the implementation of LED UV curing as well as its ability to print to a vast choice of uncoated media. For screen printers, there are now no start-up costs and short run production is perfectly suited to the machine. Therefore not only can badges, cards, packaging, labels, stickers and display products be created but also the personalised imprinting of novelties, nameplates, electronics cases and other industrial products.
Capable of outputting process and white ink at up to 1,440 x 1,200dpi and printing with a variable dot, the Mimaki UJF-3042FX accommodates uncoated materials up to 50mm thick. Glass, metal, wood, plastic and acrylic can all be printed to, and with high speed printing of around 4 minutes for an A3 imprint, including white, it’s an impressively quick solution. The inherent nature of a UV print forms a raised finish, so Braille and textured effects can also be produced on small signs and packaging mockups.
The LED UV Curing technology has multiple advantages over competing technologies – the aforementioned low power consumption not only benefits running costs, but also – because of the small amount of heat generated – materials that are heat sensitive can be printed to without fear of the media deforming. The inclusion of white ink means coloured, transparent and metallic substrates can be printed to with the white as an over or under printed feature, either as a pad or in perfect registration.
