Mimaki and 3M, global industry leaders, offer comprehensive warranty for the performance of finished graphics

Suwanee, GA, March 22, 2018 – Mimaki USA, a global industry leader of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, announced today that the company’s UCJV300 Series with LUS-200 inks will carry the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty, the most comprehensive finished graphics warranty in the industry. The warranty will be available in North America, mid-summer 2018.

The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty provides full, non-prorated protection for the intended life of each graphic, including fading, cracking, peeling and other aspects of the graphic performance. 3M offers this level of assurance based on its expertise in weathering technology and rigorous testing of ink and printer combinations. The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty covers up to eight years on some interior finished graphics and up to five years on some outdoor applications like vehicle wraps when using 3M media and installed using 3M guidelines.

“3M is proud to offer graphic manufacturers a wide selection of guaranteed premier printing solutions,” said Steve Meinz, global portfolio manager for 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “Working with Mimaki, we are excited to provide our customers with an expanded portfolio of 3M™ MCS™ Warranty printing solutions.”

The new UCJV300 Series printers offer in-line cutting capabilities and feature layered print technology, such as four-layer and five-layer for transitional or double facing images. Their prints are instantly-cured at even the highest production speeds, allowing customers to quickly print and immediately move to the finished product. The LUS- 200 inks are environmentally friendly and energy efficient. They’re ideal for a wide range of applications, including those with curved surfaces like vehicle wraps and fleet graphics.

“Expanding on what is already an industry leading product, Mimaki is proud to announce that 3M has approved their MCS warranty on the UCJV300 Series when used with LUS-200 inks,” said Scott Champeau, general manager at Mimaki USA. “Designed for flexibility and durability, customers that source and use 3M products for the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty can now do so with confidence. These customers can choose LUS-200 as their installed ink set for 3M specific workflows.”
