Mimaki to launch new flatbed

Mimaki will demonstrate a new flatbed printer at this year’s Sign and Digital show at the end of April. The JFX200-2513 is a 2.4 x 1.2m UV flatbed that uses LED curing, which should reduce its power demands. It’s a compact machine that has been positioned as an entry-level model with Mimaki claiming that it is easy to operate. It’s a greyscale printer with three different drop sizes, which should give it a fairly good resolution. It is capable of printing up to 25sqm/hr.
There’s a choice of inksets between the LH100 inks that cure to a hard surface for good rub resistance, and the LUS150 inks that are cheaper and have some flexibility for applying materials to curved surfaces. It prints in CMYK but there are also options for white and clear inks as well as a primer that can be used for printing to difficult surfaces, such as glass.
It was first announced last October, and shown at the Viscom Dusseldorf show in November but is only now being launched in the UK.
