Mimaki USA announces JV150 Series printers and CJV150 Series cut-and-print devices

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Designed for light production signage and graphics, or textile and apparel environments 

Suwanee, GA – Mimaki USA, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, today announced the JV150 Series printers and CJV150 Series cut-and-print devices. These models broaden the JV and CJV series families to bring proven platform capabilities to print service providers demanding high quality, versatility and reliability but in smaller volumes.

JV150 Series printers

The JV150 Series is based on the JV300 Series platform introduced earlier this year and is available in two sizes: 

• 54-inch JV150-130

• 64-inch JV150-160

JV150 Series models feature advanced piezo technology print heads capable of print speeds of up to 605 square feet per hour. These printers can use either SS21 eco-solvent inks or Sb53 dye-sublimation inks. 

SS21 eco-solvent inks for the JV150 Series are available in eight colors including Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Light Cyan, Light Magenta, Light Black and Orange, packaged in 440 ml cartridges. SS21 eco-solvent inks are fast-drying and can print on hundreds of media choices.

Sb53 dye-sublimation inks are available in Magenta, Blue, Yellow, Black, Light Magenta and Light Blue, packaged in 440 ml cartridges.

CJV150 Series cut-and-print devices with White and Silver ink

Based on the recently-introduced CJV300 Series models, the CJV150 Series printers add cut-and-print capability for signage or textile applications. CJV150 Series models feature advanced piezo head technology and can print at speeds of up to 605 square feet per hour. These cut-and-print devices can use either SS21 eco-solvent inks or Sb53 dye-sublimation inks and are available in four sizes:

• 32-inch CJV150-75

• 43-inch CJV150-107

• 54-inch CJV150-130

• 64-inch CJV150-160

SS21 eco-solvent inks for the CJV150 Series are available in ten colors including White and Silver packaged in 220 ml cartridges; and Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Light Cyan, Light Magenta, Light Black and Orange, packaged in 440 ml cartridges. 

Sb53 dye-sublimation inks are available in Magenta, Blue, Yellow, Black, Light Magenta and Light Blue, packaged in 440 ml cartridges.

The integrated cut functionality enables short-run or custom production of labels, decals, T-shirt transfers, vehicle markings, package prototypes and more in a single unit. 

Silver ink adds brilliance

SS21 Silver ink, available for the CJV150 Series, can be used to create metallic color effects, which are in high demand for label, decal and package prototyping applications. This Silver formulation delivers brilliant mirror-effect results that are not diminished even when film overlaminate is applied. RasterLink6 RIP software – standard with CJV150 Series units – includes a swatch palette of 648 metallic colors that are easily selectable from Illustrator® and can be utilized in a near endless combination of custom colors.

Advanced Cutting Functions

The CJV150 Series offers the same advanced cutting functions included in the CJV300 Series models including continuous registration mark detection to enable cutting of an entire roll of media without interruption. Over-cut and corner-cut functions reduce waste by ensuring clearly cut edges with no uncut fragments. The segment correction function facilitates precision cutting over long-length prints, even if the image is distorted. Also included is a cut-and-print function for pre-cutting before printing, which prevents common problems such as film separation and other issues related to post-cutting on thin materials.

Reliable performance on a proven platform

The new JV150 Series and CJV150 Series, built on the advanced architecture of the JV300 Series printers, offer many new technologies designed to deliver consistent, outstanding print quality on a proven platform. Included on all units are the following features:

• Variable drop printing and MAPS3 (Mimaki Advanced Pass System 3) anti-banding technology ensures precise and accurate print quality, even at high speeds. 

• Optimum waveform technology achieves precise ink droplet placements onto the media. 

• Patented media heat system ensures uniform ink drying and produces consistent image quality across the entire width of the media. 

• Eight ink channels provide the flexibility to produce virtually limitless applications on a wide range of flexible media.

• Nozzle Check Unit (NCU) reduces ink and media waste, and downtime by checking for potential nozzle outages between file runs.

• Nozzle Recovery System (NRS) enables continued productivity by assigning operational nozzles as substitutes until an outage can be cleared. 

• Media handling features provide more accurate printing with less damage to the media.

• Available as an option is the Mimaki Bulk Ink System 3 (MBIS3) featuring two-liter ink packs for select colors.

Availability

JV150 Series and CJV150 Series printers include RasterLink6 RIP software and a one-year warranty. Additionally, the CJV150 Series includes FineCut8 plug-in for Illustrator and CorelDRAW® and Simple Studio print-cut software. All models will be available for pre-order in North America beginning in October 2014 with first shipments commencing November 2014.
