Available Late 2017
Mimaki Full-Color Commercial 3D Printer: 3DUJ-553
The Mimaki 3D printer — provisionally named 3DUJ-553 – offers an unprecedented printing experience with a number of enhancements to produce objects with high definition, fine detail and in full color. Because of Mimaki’s extensive experience in inkjet printing and based on a patent obtained by the company in 2009, the 3D printer will use a full-color UV LED-cure method with more than 10 million possible color combinations for photorealistic output. Clear ink will be available to create translucent objects. It uses a water-soluble support material that is easy to remove, maintaining fine details.

Highlights of the Mimaki 3D Printer
More than 10 million possible color combinations
While 3D inkjet printing technology is relatively new, most color 3D printers are limited in the number of available color combinations. Because of Mimaki’s extensive experience in inkjet printing and based on a patent obtained by the company in 2009, the 3D printer will use a full-color UV LED-cure method that enables unprecedented 3D modeling, yielding vibrant colors and high definition imaging.

Mimaki technology combined with high quality modeling
Mimaki’s printer and ink technologies enable high quality 3D printing that can create products that are delicate, extremely precise and incredibly realistic.
Clear ink enhances product variations
The 3DUJ-P printer is also able to utilize clear inks that can be jetted independently or combined with colored ink to create translucent objects. Additionally, Mimaki’s technology utilizes clear ink to create a glossy finish, thereby making the underlying colors more vibrant.
Unique support material for hassle-free finishing
Unlike many other 3D materials, the Mimaki water-soluble support material does not require lye or other harsh chemicals but is easily removed with water alone. Easy removal of the support material means that end users can create models and products with fine details and intricate designs without affecting the final design.
