Production Example of JV300 Series
High ink performance and machine technology achieves outstanding speed.
Highest-speed printing is achieved in the same product category through Mimaki’s high technological standards and ink performance.
Newly developed printhead and ink jet technology
Two newly developed staggered printheads deliver a wider print swath. Each ink color has its own specific gravity and viscosity. To achieve precise placement of the ink droplets onto the media, Mimaki designed an optimum waveform that allows the printhead to jet each ink color at the appropriate jetting angle without losing excellent ink droplet circularity. Moreover, various ink droplet sizes are precisely placed from the minimum size 4pl to the maximum size 35pl. Small droplets create beautiful high-resolution printing, and large droplets are very useful for high-speed printing. Thus, the JV300-130/160 satisfies a wide range of needs including beautiful high-quality printing and productive high-speed printing.
Quick-dry SS21 ink that achieves outstanding speed
SS21 ink was developed through the concentrated knowledge and technology of Mimaki. The SS21 ink dries quickly on the media due to a good balance between ink penetration and solvent volatilization. High productivity is achieved through high-density printing at high-speed modes without blocking and bleeding.
SS21 ink creates value-added printings
A wide range of ink colors, including newly developed colors.SS21 ink has nine colors, including newly developed orange and light black. Depending on the application, the optimum ink set is selected.
Cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y), black (K), light cyan (Lc), light magenta (Lm), white (W), orange (Or), and light black (Lk)
|1）Four-color for speed printing|
|2）Eight-color for smooth and vibrant printing|
|3）Six-color plus double-white inks,for
rapid white printing
Orange ink broadens the range of color representation.
By using the newly developed SS21 orange ink as a process color, 94.8% of the PANTONE color chart is covered with approximate colors. Thanks to a wider gamut with the orange ink, food freshness can be simulated, and corporate colors can be faithfully represented.
Light black ink assists in beautiful monochrome image printing.
The newly developed SS21 light black ink and superior gray-balance control produce accurate grayscale printing without unexpected color shifts. Smooth and non-grainy skin tones and grayscale gradation are delivered.
White ink accentuates ink colors
Due to larger ink droplet size, the JV300-130/160 is able to print white ink at higher density than that by conventional models. Accordingly, the degree of white ink opacity is increased. White base layer printing accentuates the brightness of color printing on transparent or opaque media.
Safety low odor eco-solvent ink [ES3]
Safeness, low odor and high- weatherability are achieved with relatively low polarity solvent. Unlike water-based inks, the ES3 doesn't require coated media for printing and thus a production becomes more cost effective.
Sublimation ink Sb53 achieves high-density printing.
Sb53 ink is a sublimation ink that produces bright colors and enables high-density printing. The sedimentary degree of the Sb53 ink is lower than a conventional sublimation ink. Thus, much stable printing is achieved without uneven color print results. The ideal print material is polyester, which is used for apparel fabric, sports uniforms, and swimsuits.
Three-way intelligent heater system also supports the delivery of the optimum ink droplet form and size.
When the temperature of the media is not optimized, the perfect shape and size of droplets are not appropriately adhered onto the media (Figure 6). A patented three-way intelligent heater is built into the JV300, and each heater maintains the temperature appropriately to obtain high-quality printing. The details of each heater are given in Figure 7. ■Patent number■ Japan: 4889059 USA: 8,444,262 China: ZL 200910222559.8
Solutions for uninterrupted print operation
Ink and media shortage, clogged nozzles, and other minor problems influence stable productivity. JV300 fully supports continuous printing with reliable technologies.
Nozzle check unit (NCU) automatically detects clogged nozzles and unclogs them.
Clogged nozzles are detected automatically by monitoring ink droplets with sensors. When clogged nozzles are found, the nozzles are automatically cleaned. A monitoring interval is set for each print dataset at specified time intervals. The NCU reduces waste printing after the occurrence of clogged nozzles.
Nozzle recovery system (NRS) for maintaining productivity
Previously, when the issue was not resolved after nozzle cleaning, the printhead needed to be repaired by a technician, and printing operation had to be stopped until the maintenance work was completed. The NRS allows the printer to continue print operations without interruption by using non-defective nozzles as substitutes for defective nozzles until the technician arrives.
MCT: Mimaki Circulation Technology for White Ink
MCT is a standard feature included to effectively avoid the settling of white pigment in the ink lines by regularly circulating the ink. It prevents print troubles and enables stable output from the start of operation. In addition, MCT contributes to reduction of ink waste, thereby supporting environmentally and economically friendly applications. *MCT is only available for white ink. （MCT = Mimaki Circulation Technology）
Reliable ink supply system
UISS*(Uninterrupted Ink Supply System)
In 4C ink-set, when the ink run out, ink is automatically supplied from the other cartridge for continuous operation. *When using Sb53 6C ink set, UISS works with M and Bl. Not available with 8C ink-set.
Non-Stop Ink replacement
In 4C ink-set, empty ink cartridge can be replaced with a new one without stopping the on-going print job. No waste of time and media/ink. *Not available with 6C/8C ink-set.
MBIS3(Mimaki Bulk Ink System 3) *Optional
Large volume of 2L ink packs are set directly on to the ink station, ensuring continuous large print jobs. New MBIS on the printer saves working space, and large 2L ink pack saves running cost.
