Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. has released the Pure Clear ink “MH-110PCL” for use in the Mimaki UV-curable full-color 3D inkjet printer “3DUJ-553.” As stated by the company, the ink is capable of depicting the clear expressions as intended by designers and architects, which is expected to be used in product design for home appliances and cosmetics, as well as in design mock-ups and design verification for industrial products.
Pure Clear Ink “MH-110PCL” is only compatible with Mimaki UV-curable full-color 3D inkjet printer “3DUJ-553”. The combination of Mimaki UV-curable full-color 3D inkjet printer “3DUJ-553” and Pure Clear ink “MH-110PCL” can be used for product design prototyping, medical and architectural fields, as well as 3DCG design modelling.
Introduced in 2018, 3DUJ-553 is the world’s first model of full-colour printing with more than 10 million colour tones. Object signage by the 3D printer is considerably effective to be remarked and understood easily with its presence by the combination of the realistic 3-dimensional motif and 2D image. So, for the Sign Graphics market, the Mimaki 3DUJ-553 printer can offer more than 10 million different full colors and as well enhance the color reproducibility with the color adjustment by employing the colour profiles.
The newly developed pure clear ink “MH-110PCL” reduces the yellowish tint, evident in the conventional “MH-100CL” clear ink, thus enabling a more clear-cut, transparent modeling. It is also suitable for use in medical and architectural models requiring visualization to confirm internal structures. In the field of 3DCG design, the ink is eligible for use in the expression of artworks, etc.
As with the conventional “MH-100CL” clear ink, the pure clear “MH-110PCL” ink is not only limited to the expression of transparency but can also be combined with color inks (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) for the reproduction of translucent color (transparent with color) expressions.
The Mimaki 3D printer “3DUJ-553,” featuring the “full-colour modelling capability with more than 10 million colors,” allows for use in designs emphasizing a broader range of colors and visuals than ever before with the addition of the clear and translucent color expressions enabled by the transparent pure clear ink “MH-110PCL.”
