JV400LX World's first LATEX printer to use white ink!
Eco-friendly water-based 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.

Ink Circulation

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.

Colour mode selectable to your needs

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!

Excellent for outdoor and indoor applications

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
It can be used to output on heat deformable or discolourable materials including PET, it also contributes to reduction of colour blurring due to high temperature. Combining its excellent media capability with cold cure, Latex Ink can meet the diversified needs of clients in a finer, more versatile and higher quality manner.
* Depending on media, ink curing temperature needs 70ºC or higher.

No drying time, Immediate secondary processing
When using Mimaki Latex inks, fixation and curing is immediate. It is therefore not necessary to worry about drying times. Immediately after printing, secondary processing, such as lamination, can be performed, dramatically increasing time and efficiency.

Newly developed high-speed print heads

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)

High quality prints with advanced technology

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.

UISS (Uninterrupted Ink Supply System)

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-cartridge method

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.
* 1: Ink pack capacity is 600 ml.
* 2: LX100 white ink is for 220 ml ink cartridge.

High performance RIP software

Intuitive and user-friendly interface operation offering new features including three layer printing (colour - white - colour) RasterLink 6 outputs highly professional finished products.

Improved drying device for the color reproduction fixability of ink

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.

Nozzle recovery function

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.
*Nozzle Recovery Function is a temporary "failure averting function" to continue operation and its recoverability is limited.
