Mimaki Engineering Co. added two new latex printers to its JV400 product line. The JV400-130/160LX latex printer supports six colors, plus white. An ink circulation system prevents pigment sedimentation and reduces the need for manual ink cartridge circulation. A minimum dot size of 4 picoliters and the ability to use variable sized ink dots provides high-quality prints.
The JV400-130/160SUV inkjet printer uses CMYK colors and prints at speeds of up to 18 square meters per hour. During printing, an ink-receiving layer absorbs the solvent component and the pigment settles into the media. The ink is then cured with a UV process for a smooth, glossy appearance.
