Mimaki USA, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, launched the Plus series in the Americas with the addition of the JV300 Plus printer, CJV300 Plus printer/cutter device, and CG-FXII Plus cutter that include features and functionality to drive workflow efficiencies.
Mimaki Advance Pass System 4 (MAPS4) is the latest version of the Mimaki Advanced Pass System that utilises an advanced algorithm pattern to reduce banding and delivering output that looks spectacular even at higher speeds. Combined with Mimaki Variable Dot Technology, the resulting prints are smooth, even in the mid-tones, solids and gradients.
An advanced Take-Up device compensates for uneven tension pulling during media wind-up, resulting in smooth winding. The ability to prevent telescoping in the postprint take-up stage contributes to a balance between printing and finishing, further optimizing workflow. The new Take-Up device can also accept media rolls weighing nearly 100 lbs. (45kg), for longer, uninterrupted production runs.
New Mimaki Eco-cartridges are designed to ensure a more sustainable printing process for customers who prefer the 440 ml cartridge ink delivery system.
The company’s proprietary ID Cut function now supports automated cutting on the CJV300 Plus printer/cutter and the CG-FXII Plus cutter. This innovative functionality was developed to enable continuous cutting operations on multiple jobs, with minimal human touchpoints.
The ID Cut function is included in Mimaki RasterLink 6 Plus RIP software; along with registration marks, the software adds a bar code on the print. The barcode, read by the crop mark sensor on the CJV printer/cutter or CG-FXII Plus cutter, contains cutting and rotation information enabling these devices to automate the cutting process.
The JV300 Plus series includes the 54-inch JV300-130 Plus and the 64-inch JV300160 Plus printers; the CJV300 Plus series includes the 54-inch CJV300-130 Plus and the 64-inch CJV300-160 Plus printer/cutters, and CG-FXII Plus series includes the 62-inch CG-130FXII Plus and the 74-inch CG-160FXII Plus cutters.
