JV400LX World's first LATEX printer to use white ink!
Our water-based “LX100 Inks” have very little VOC’s (volatile organic compound) and does not need special ventilating equipment. This eco-friendly ink reduces the operator’s health risk and is better for the environment.
MCT (*) to regularly circulate white ink is standard equipment. It enables stable output from the time of machine startup by effectively avoiding the settling of white pigment in the ink lines. Additionally, MCT contributes to reduction of ink waste, thereby supporting environmentally and economically friendly applications.
* MCT = Mimaki Circulation Technology. MCT works only with white ink.
Eight ink cartridges can be inserted and you can choose the colour configuration of ink at the time of installation. If a 7-colour mode (CMYKLcLm+ white) is selected white ink is added, but for higher productivity, such as bill board printing a double CMYK 4-colour mode can be selected for higher productivity.
Window graphics are printed with transparent PET film. White Latex makes colours vivid!
Latex ink fixes pigment to media because resin contained in the ink dissolves with the heater, forming membrane. Therefore, it can be outputted on PVC film, banner material, backlit bluebacked paper indispensable for sign making and on most media that are currently used in eco-solvent machines. Moreover, non-coat media without acceptance layer, such as paper and textile, can be printed as well. This excellent media capability is very attractive as it supports new applications and can expand future print business.
60ºC cold cure expands capability for various heat-sensitive media
No drying time, Immediate secondary processing
Two newly developed print heads with four rows of 320 nozzles per head are arranged in a single line, enabling high-speed printing with top quality results.
JV400 standard quality print speeds (4 colour mode)
Multiple drop sizes with a minimum size of 4 pl
Depending on the media or output density, the drop sizes of ink from the print head can be selected to a minimum of 4 pl. Multidrop function provides three different drop sizes at once, producing fascinating, non-grainy and smooth printing results. Mimaki’s proprietary head control technology delivers unrivaled high definition & high resolution prints.
Two ink cartridges per colour can be set in 4-colour mode. When an ink cartridge runs out, another cartridge of the same colour automatically starts supplying ink, preventing the printer from stopping while producing large volumes of output. This feature is especially useful for unattended overnight printing,
Eco-cartridges can be repeatedly used by changing spent ink packs. This eco-cartridge method contributes to waste reduction and can provide ink at lower prices.
Intuitive and user-friendly interface operation offering new features including three layer printing (colour - white - colour) RasterLink 6 outputs highly professional finished products.
3 Way Intelligent Heater improves the colour reproduction and fixability of ink by heating the media to the proper temperature before, during and after printing. In combination with the 3 Way Intelligent Heater, the added drying fan heater is employed to help resin dissolve to form a membrane.
Even when nozzle washing has no effect on a troubled nozzle, the print image quality can be recovered temporarily. In this nozzle downtime the printer continues to produce high quality prints till the Mimaki service team arrives.
