The new UJF-6042MkII is
the successor model to the UJF-6042.
UJF-6042MkII is advanced flatbed UV-curable inkjet
printer that create high-value-added product, achieve superior productivity and
print quality, and have a greater ability to accommodate a wide range of
120% faster print speed than with conventional models.
The best-in-class productivity delivers effective on-demand print
- The UJF-3042MkII and the UJF-6042MkII models achieve a maximum print
speed of 2.48 m2/h (*1) and
3.52 m2/h (*2). The
best-in-class productivity exhibits an approximately 120% (*3) faster
print speed than that of conventional models and support on-demand print

mechanical structure improves value-added print products
- Unlike conventional models, the print table moves during printing to
reduce printer unit vibration. The table is precisely controlled to improve
ink dot placement.
- Direct printing on objects of up to 153 mm in thickness.
- Fully covered print table improves printer safety by preventing
accidents involving operation contact with the printer carriage. It also
maintains print quality by reducing dust adhesion.
inks expand the range of applications
- The flexible LUS-120 ink can print on soft materials including leather
- The LUS-150 (*4) ink adheres very well to various materials especially
to acrylic. Examples of ideal applications are indoor signs, trophies.
- The inkjet primer PR-200 increases ink adhesion to glass, metal, resin,
and other materials with surface treatment.
- Mimaki Clear Control (MCC) can create embossed printing by utilizing a
clear varnish ink. The beautiful and unique print finish adds value to the
*4: The LUS-150 ink will be compatible in the future.
- Mimaki's unique
print-quality management enhances color representation
- Mimaki Expand Color is preset in RasterLink6 (*5) and it delivers
upgraded color representation with more vibrant solid color or brighter
- Mimaki's unique printhead control techniques, including the Mimaki
Advanced Pass Ssytem4 (MAPS4), variable dot printing and waveform control,
deliver print results of exceptional quality.
*5: Mimaki genuine RIP software
functions ensure worry-free print operation
- Nozzle check unit (NCU) automatically detects clogged nozzles and
performs cleaning; moreover, the nozzle recovery system (NRS) uses only
good nozzles as substitute if the clogged nozzles are not recovered after
cleaning. These functions allow constant printing and reduce waste
printing due to defective nozzles.
- Mimaki circulation technology (MCT) is used in the white-ink tank and
channels and it circulates white ink at regular intervals to prevent
pigment sedimentation that leads to nozzle malfunction.
Best-in-class print speed, approximately 120% more faster print speed than the
Because of the new printhead, with its longer nozzle lines (*1),
the print speed of the UJF-3042/6042MkII has been increased by approximately
120 % (*2) more than that of conventional models. The maximum print speed of
the UJF-3042MkII is 2.48 m2/h (*3) and UJF-6042MkII is
3.52 m2/h (*4). Moreover, the staggered printhead arrangement (Fig.1)
increases productivity by printing process and spot colors simultaneously (*5).
In FabLabs or retails stores, the new UJF-3042MkII and UJF-6042MkII models
motivate personal customers to create customized items by demonstrating
usability and instant print features.

Table-driven printing delivers
superior quality image
To reduce printer unit vibration, the print table moves vertical
direction during printing without moving the upper unit of the printer. In
addition, to achieve higher positional accuracy, two ball screws are installed
on both sides of the table to assist table movement. The precise droplet
placement reduces-gloss banding issues and enables creating more valuable print
products. In addition, the noise level of this model is remarkably reduced
compared to the conventional model; thus, this printer can be installed in an
Direct printing on an object
up to 153 mm thick
The printable object can be as
thick as 153 mm. Moreover, the advanced sensor detects even a transparent
object (*6). The new model accepts a range of materials with simple set-up
*6: To utilize this feature, spacers are required depending on the thickness of
the object. The spacer is one of accessories of UJF-3042/6042MkII.
Lift-up table cover
The fully covered print table prevents accidents involving
operator contact with the printer carriage. It also maintains print quality by
reducing dust adhesion.
High-performance UV-curable inks expand the range of applications
The flexible LUS-120 ink stretches up to 170% and delivers
beautiful and durable print results on soft materials including leather or
The LUS-150 ink stretches up to 150% and delivers vibrant color
representation. In addition to its use on soft materials, this ink adheres very
well to rigid materials such as glass or acrylic. Examples of ideal
applications are indoor signs or trophies.
*7: The LUS-150 ink will be loadable in the future.
The LH-100 ink features high scratch-resistant, is chemically
resistant, and has excellent color reproducibility. Ideal applications are
smartphone cases, key fobs made of resins or plastics.
The PR-200 primer enhances the ink adhesion. The primer can be
applied to the required areas by ink-jetting. This feature retains the texture
of the material, which is not possible with manual primer application. The
PR-200 can be used on resin, glass and metal materials without affecting their
The clear varnish ink offers
valuable new print effects
Mimaki clear control (MCC) has been newly added to the
UJF-3042MkII and 6042MkII models. This technique adds a glossy finish on
desired areas and a premium appearance to the print. However, clear-ink prints
tend to be ruined by dusts adhering to uncured inks. In order to minimize dust
adhesion and air bubbles on the print, MCC shortens the ink curing time by
processing the clear ink print and UV-light irradiation simultaneously. MCC
provides a gorgeous gloss finish and a stylish matte finish. Moreover, an
embossed print is available by multiple applications of clear ink on specific
areas; it adds a dimensional appearance to the print and enables representing
the freshness of food or elaborate designs.
Mimaki's unique techniques provides more beautiful print
The new input profile, Mimaki Expand Color, is added to Mimaki
genuine RIP software, RasterLink6. This profile enables representing more
vibrant solid colors and brighter skin tones than a conventional input profile
and provide more attractive print results with high-contrast color shades;
bright parts are brighter and dark parts are darker.
Mimaki Advanced pass System 4
(MAPS4) minimizes banding and uneven color printing
MAPS4 has been newly added to the UJF-3042MkII and 6042MkII
models. Generally, swath boundaries are straight lines. Therefore, a slight
misalignment between boundaries causes banding or uneven color printing. MAPS4
reduces banding and uneven color printing with blurred boundaries similar to
MAPS4 applied Banding and uneven color printing are reduced by scattering swath boundaries. Beautiful print image is obtained.
No MAPS4 Bandings appear on swath boundaries. Print quality is remarkably degraded because banding is recognizable on each boundary.
control and variable dot printing achieve smooth and quality print image
Each ink color has
its own specific gravity and viscosity. To achieve a precise placement of ink
droplets onto the media, Mimaki has designed an optimum waveform control
technique that allows the printhead to jet each ink color at an optimum angle,
maintaining excellent ink droplet circularity. Thanks to precise ink droplet
landing, three different droplet sizes (6 pl to 24 pl *8) are properly used for
providing optimum print results.
*8: The maximum droplet size is 30 pl when using white high-dense mode.
Clogged nozzles are
detected automatically by monitoring ink droplets with sensors. When clogged
nozzles are located, these are automatically cleaned, reducing waste printing.
Nozzles are checked per transfer file.
If the clogged
nozzles are not recovered after cleaning through the NCU function, the NRS
selects substitute nozzles and then restarts printing. This is a significant
novelty, since previously, when nozzle cleaning fails, the printhead has to be
repaired by a technician, and the printing operation ceases until the printhead
is repaired. The NRS* allows the printer to continue printing without
interruption by using non-defective nozzles as substitutes for defective
nozzles until the technician arrives. (*9)
*9: NRS may not be activated depending on print modes.
