Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. (Head office:
Tomi-shi, Nagano, President: Kazuaki Ikeda), specializing in industrial inkjet
printers, cutting plotters and 3D printers, announces a new flatbed UV inkjet
printer, the “UJF-7151 plusII” and the sales of this new products is scheduled
to start in the winter of 2021.
The UJF-7151 plusII offers new expression with the
color gloss function, high-definition printing at 1800 dpi, and the ability to
automate workpiece transport with “Mimaki original MDL (Mimaki Device Language)
commands*1”. The UJF-7151 plusII is a high-performance UV
inkjet printer model with high accuracy, high image quality, and high speed,
and is a further improvement in quality and stability from the current model,
the UJF-7151 plus, which offered high accuracy and high image quality in
addition to class-leading productivity and stability.
UJF-7151 plusII incorporates eight printheads,
increasing the number of heads by two from the previous six-headed model,
enabling configuration of the eight heads to suit any application. Four-color
configuration printers are provided with four-color double-set inks, achieving
up to 190% faster printing speed than conventional models. Six-color
configuration printers featuring Light color (Light Cyan and Light Magenta)
inks enable delicate color expressions.
In addition, a new color gloss function has been
added to harden color inks to a glossy finish, providing a texture and detail
different from conventional clear prints and enabling new and different
expressions. The “MFD2 (Mimaki Fine Diffusion 2)*2” process, which controls the position of the
dots, has been added to improve image quality, and a new 1800 dpi*3 printing mode has been added to enables
users to experience high-definition quality with less graininess and color
As with our current models, the printer is
compatible with Mimaki's original MDL commands, which allow the printer to be
controlled from the customer's production system or peripheral equipment.
"By using MDL commands, it is possible to obtain information such as the
remaining ink level and error information of the printer, as well as to control
printer operations such as the position and height of the table on which the
print media (workpiece) is set and the start of printing, thereby realizing
automation of workpiece transport.
As an additional feature, the UJF-7151 plusII has
a new table load capacity of 30 kg, up from 10 kg on the current model, which
allows it to accommodate heavy metal jigs and other equipment, making it ideal
for industrial printing that requires more precise positioning and for printing
on heavy media.
Options include a full cover to protect the
printing board from dust, and a deodorizing unit to efficiently remove odors.
UJF-7151 plus II is available with selectable ink
types suitable for use, allowing direct printing on a variety of media
including acrylic and other resins, glass, metal, and even leather. It can be
used to decorate nameplates for home appliances and industrial products,
various parts that require high definition, information boards, indoor molded
signs, leather for belts and bags, and various other custom-made goods. The UV
curable ink*4 house-developed for the UJF-7151 plusII has
acquired GREENGUARD Gold certification, which indicates that the ink meets the
standards for chemical substance emission specified by UL, a U.S. third-party
safety science organization, and is safe for the environment.
Mimaki was among the first companies to develop
and market UV inkjet printers and we have always been a market leader in this
field. UV inkjet printers use UV irradiation to cure ink, does not require the
preparation of plates like screen printing, thus reducing the time and cost of
plate preparation. It is also easy to change the color and size if data is
available. With these features, UV inkjet printers are attracting more and more
attention as the best solution for small-lot, high-mix, on-demand printing,
including decorative businesses.
Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. with its management
vision of “Newness and Difference,” will continue to pursue new technological
innovations to achieve the “beauty and speed” that our customers demand.

1. New feature
-- “Color Gloss” functionality
The new “Color Gloss” functionality hardens color inks to a
glossy finish, achieving textures and details demarcating from conventional
glossy finish obtained using clear ink. By selecting “Color Gloss” printing
from the standard attachment “RasterLink7” software, the ink is cured to a
unique glossy tone by proprietary UV irradiation conditions.
2. High-definition printing
with improved ink landing performance
Strengthened structure of the printer body reduces shaking
during printing, allowing ink droplets ejected from the print head to land in
more precise positions. This provides for sharp edges and fine lines, and less
color irregularities in solid printing.

3. Connected digital printing
Mimaki offers command sets to enable customer production systems
and peripheral devices to control our printers. Through applying these
commands, the position and height of the media setting table, the start of
printing, and other printer operations can be controlled. It also allows for
the acquisition of remaining ink level and error information from the printer.
Regarding the MDL (Mimaki Device Language) command, customers are able to build
systems optimized to their individual applications by developing the necessary
software using technical information (SDK) provided from Mimaki.
