Mimaki announces new JV300

Mimaki is launched a new eco-solvent printer, the JV300, at next week’s Fespa show. It will be available in 1.3m and 1.6m widths. Mimaki says that it is using new inks and printheads. It takes the SS21 solvent inks which include CMYK, light cyan, light magenta and white as well as newly-developed inks for orange and light black to extend the colour gamut and improve gradation performance. Mimaki claims that the new orange ink can be used as a process colour to closely match 92% of the Pantone colour chart, allowing for a better match with corporate colours along with accurate reproduction of food and other natural products. The new light black inks and improved grey-balance control should produce accurate greyscale printing without unexpected colour shifts.

It’s also compatible with Mimaki’s Sb53 water-based sublimation inks, mainly for printing to polyester materials.

It has two printheads, in a staggered configuration with a choice of four, six or eight colour channels. These are greyscale heads with drop sizes ranging from 4 to 35 picolitres which give a maximum resolution up to 1440dpi. It can produce up to 105 sqm/hr


Target markets include outdoor signage, posters, interior décor and vehicle wrapping. It should be available next month.
