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

- 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.
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.
