High productivity and high weatherability Inkjet print signage


High-speed LED-UV printing with unrivaled beauty.
Combination of high speed and quality printing enable to shorten the delivery time and increase business opportunity.

  • A maximum print speed of 60 m2/h can be achieved. Even when using white ink, high speed printing of 24 m2/h is possible.(for LUS-150 ink)
  • Since UV inks dry immediately when exposed to UV light, no drying time is required. This dramatically improves work efficiency for the user.
  • “LUS-150” ink which employs white and is designed for wide media applications is also available. White ink is ideal for use in window graphics and with other clear substrates.
  • The new UV ink type ”LUS-200” ensures outdoor durability. The flexibility of 200% enables installing on curved surfaces such as vehicle wraps.
  • Environmentally-friendly UV printing generates little VOCs. Curing is performed with a power-saving and long-lasting LED UV lamp.

High Speed Print

Max Print Speed 60m2/h!

? Newly developed print head

7,680 nozzles

The UJV500-160 can print at high speeds up to 60 m2/h. A speed of 24 m2/h can be reached while printing with white ink. The number of print heads and nozzles has been updated. The six 2 inch print heads are aligned in a staggered array, which is optimized to eject ink effectively.
* 1 head=1,280 nozzles (320 nozzles X 4 rows), In total: 7,680 nozzles (1,280 nozzle X 6 heads)

* The print speeds above are the results of printing on media with a 1,610mm width. 
Depending on the firmware setting, the print speeds above may not be reproduced.


? Newly developed LED-UV Unit

Curing efficiency has been improved due to renovating the LED-UV unit. In addition to being long-lasting and energy-saving, LED UV lamps do not generate excessive heat. This enables printing onto a wider range of materials, including heat-sensitive substrates, without media deformation.

High Quality Print

“MAPS” - a mask pattern that reduces banding

In addition to the normal pattern, you can select "MAPS" which effectively reduces banding. MAPS implements printing in a gradational mask pattern and diminishes the appearance of banding.
* Depending on the setting of MAPS, print speed varies.
(MAPS = Mimaki Advanced Pass System)


Smooth and beautiful gradation is achieved with Mimaki's unique head control technique

Variable dot printing ejects ink drops in 3 different dot sizes. This smooth gradation without granular appearance is even achieved with 4-color printing.

User Friendly


Vertical Tension Take-up System : Newly developed take-up device enables stable continuous operation

By pulling media down vertically, feeding errors are reduced, thus increasing print stability. This allows for continuous printing onto large media with a maximum roll diameter of 300mm and weight of 60kg. The high speed printing of the UJV500-160 enables high productivity.
Additionally, the take up unit is positioned more towards the front than conventional printers, allowing media to be set more easily.

Nozzle Recovery Function enables continuous operation

Previously, repairs by service personnel were required when nozzle clogging was not corrected by cleaning. Now, the nozzle recovery system allows for printing to proceed as if the nozzle is not clogged, without slowing down the print speed.
*The recoverability of this function is limited.

High Speed LED-UV ink : for LUS-150 ink
The high media compatibility of inks opens a door to a wide range of applications for inkjet print signage.

LUS-150 ink(CMYK+W)

LUS-150 has the best curing property for high speed printing. This ink offers improved curing times resulting in a less tactile sticky feeling. This ink is flexible up to 150% resulting in increased elasticity and bending performance on a wide variety of media and substrates with little cracking. Additionally, white ink allows for printing on transparent film for window graphics.
* LUS = LED UV Stretchable ink
* As the flexibility of LUS-150 ink may vary according to the substrate, please verify your substrate in advance.

Instantly dry, 3 layer white ink

A 3-layer print of color, white and color can be performed simultaneously. Printing a base layer of white ink reproduces the natural beauty of process colors that are printed on transparent substrates, with high precision and no multi-pass color registration shift.

All layers printed simultaneously

MCT & MDM Image

White ink circulation system:MCT

By periodically circulating white ink in the line, pigment deposition is prevented. This accomplishes stable production and reduction of ink discharge and waste.
* MCT (Mimaki Circulation Technology) works only with white ink.

Outdoor durability and 200% flexibility for vehicle wraps : for LUS-200 ink

Maximizing the capability of inkjet print signage

¦merit 1

Having an outdoor durability allows for installation of printed materials in places where regular maintenance is not possible, without worrying about deterioration.

¦merit 2

LUS-200 ink (C M Y K W)

The new UV ink ”LUS-200”, which has been jointly-developed with 3M, can stretch up to 200% after curing. Since stretching will not crack the image, the LUS-200 ink is ideal for applications with curved surfaces such as vehicle wraps.
·LUS = LED UV Stretchable ink
·The flexibility of LUS-200 inks may vary according to the substrate, please verify your substrate in advance.

Eco Friendly


Refined, environmentally friendly functions

? Low VOCs & Ozone-Free

UV curing generates minimal VOCs. LED UV ink is ozone-free.

? Power saving, long lasting LED–UV lamp

The LED-UV lamp generates very little heat. Unlike metal halide lamps, LED-UV lamps light up only where the image is printed, which leads to cost-effective production. As the life of the lamp is very long, both environmentally-friendly and economical production is supported.

? Ink supplied in bottles

Each UV ink is supplied in a high-capacity bottle instead of a cartridge. This economical and ecological package contributes to reduce the amount of industrial waste and running costs.

Ink Station, Refill inks with bottles

Low cost ink supplied in bottles

MDM, which removes nozzle trouble caused by bubbles in the ink, is employed.
Ink that has not been degassed is supplied in bottles (the printer handles the degassing), both of which enable lower ink costs.
?MDM = Mimaki Degassing Module

  • All trademarks or registered trademarks are the property of their respective owners.
  • Inkjet printers print using extremely fine dots, thus colors may vary slightly following replacement of the printing heads. Also note that if using multiple printer units, colors may vary slightly among the units due to slight individual differences among the units.

Inks and substrates:

  • Please note that properties and adhesion, weather resistance etc. of ink and substrates can vary. Therefore please test materials before printing.
  • Some substrates require primer before printing. Please test materials beforehand or ask your sales representative.

Safety notice:

You are dealing with UV light sources that may harm your health. Please follow below guidelines strictly:

  • Do not look directly into the UV light source nor place your hand, or expose your skin directly to the UV light source.
  • Depending upon print mode, there might occur some VOC emittance from printed parts not yet cured and hardened.
  • In addition, please read the instructions and guidelines of the manual carefully and follow those.
