Highlights of the Mimaki UJF-3042 MkII EX printer
Professional UV printing on a proven platform
The UJF-3042 MkII EX printer combine higher accuracy dot placement with speed improvements of up to 20 percent over the previous generation. A fully enclosed print area reduces airborne contaminants, reducing re-prints and ensuring production stays on track. These models also enable placement in more demanding environments such as a production floor. Current UJF EX users can expand their printer line-up with a UJF-3042 MkII EX printer without the need to rework jigs, protecting their investment in custom jigs due to a common registration hole layout.
Workflow enhancements streamline production.
The UJF-3042 MkII EX printer is fully networkable with industry standard Gigabit Ethernet for multiple printer connections over greater distances ensuring the highest productivity. Production on a UJF-3042 MkII EX printer is made more efficient with an automated hot folder-based workflow. Users can take advantage of features in RasterLink6 RIP software such as the ability to build a template and auto-populate the data using Variable Data with the Adobe InDesign Data Merge function or third party VDP plug-ins, to create a table’s-worth of personalized items.
Integrated tools for high tolerance repeatable output.
Ball screw table movement paired with precise ink drop placement results in precise image quality. The UJF print table uses threaded registration screws for repeatable media or jig placement. Combined, these features ensure consistent accuracy for maximum production and minimal waste. A vacuum table ensures better fixation of challenging materials.
Mimaki Advanced Pass System 4 (MAPS4)
MAPS4 utilizes an advanced algorithm pattern to reduce banding, delivering output that looks spectacular even at higher speeds. Combined with Variable Dot Technology, the resulting prints is smooth even in the mid-tones, solids and gradients.
Waveform Control (WFC)
WFC utilizes finely tuned frequencies for each ink’s specific gravity and viscosity to precisely shape and place individual drops, producing images that are optimized even at lower resolutions.
Mimaki Circulation Technology (MCT)
MCT continuously circulates White ink and reduces the need for manual maintenance and waste.
Nozzle Check Unit (NCU) and Nozzle Recovery System (NRS)
Nozzle Check Unit (NCU) and Nozzle Recovery System (NRS)
Mimaki’s UV-LED system uses less energy than other UV types, has a longer life and can print into media that could be damaged by higher-heat systems.
