Advanced ink technology
Solvent UV ink （SU100）
Solvent UV ink contains a solvent component and a UV ink component.
First, the solvent component attacks the acceptance layer of the media, fixing the pigment; the subsequent UV curing assures very high robustness.
Since printing is directly followed by curing, drying time is eliminated.
Secondary processing can be done immediately after printing!
When using Mimaki Solvent UV 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.
Scratch resistance that everyone desires
A robust UV component remains on the media after UV curing, which provides a surprisingly strong scratch resistance (rub-fastness). Moreover, Solvent UV is equal to or better than solvent ink in weatherability and alcoholic resistance. In cases such as banner materials, where lamination is difficult and often omitted, considerable durability can be expected.
Solvent UV ink contains a solvent component which attacks the acceptance layer of the media, fixing the pigment. It performs UV curing, not when the ink is discharged, but after the pigment is fixed to the media, all while maintaining the vivid color reproduction of solvent ink, resulting in a coating-like smooth glossy print. Signs with solvent UV have a bold and vivid appearance which catches the eyes of passers-by.
Improved drying & UV curing devices for vivid color & strong scratchability
3 Way Intelligent Heater improves the color 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 UV curing unit immediately cures the ink to be fixed.
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.

High quality prints are made available by 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 realizes an unrivaled high definition & high resolution print.
Fail-safe features for continuous operation
Nozzle Recovery Function
Without the nozzle recovery function, when printing and nozzle clogging or failure occurs that could not be resolved by the nozzle cleaning function, printers have to wait stop until the Mimaki service team arrives. When it comes to this function, even if nozzle washing has no effect on a troubled nozzle, the print image quality can be retained immediately without slowing down the print process.
* The recoverability of this function is limited.
UISS (Uninterrupted Ink Supply System)
Two ink cartridges per color can be set in 4-color mode. When an ink cartridge runs out, another cartridge of the same color 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-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.
* Ink pack capacity is 600 ml.
