Mimaki has reduced the price of its groundbreaking A3 flatbed LED UV printer – the UJF-3042FX – to just £16,995+VAT. The company says that this will make 'the world’s best selling UV printer an even more attractive proposition for the broad array of markets that it provides a solution for'.
With six ink channels and an extremely creative range of award-winning ink combinations (which include a unique primer, clear varnish and a highly opaque white) the printer suits the short run, rapid turnaround production of promotional products, personalised items, small format rigid signage and other bespoke jobs. Equally at home in studio environments (thanks to its lack of need for air extraction) as it is in a manufacturing setup, its 1200dpi print resolution and variable dot print head ensure the output quality is typical of that associated with Mimaki. With a 50mm head gap, an enormous variety of substrates and finished items can be printed to, adding value and functionality.
“The new price brings the revolutionary UJF-3042FX to an even broader market,” says Mike Lewis from Mimaki’s exclusive UK and Irish distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd. “The uptake of LED UV printing is increasing rapidly as print providers see the benefits of direct to substrate printing. We’re equally finding the robustness and build quality of the Mimaki makes it suitable for fitting into manufacturing workflows, with multiple machine installs per site ever more common.”
The Mimaki UJF-3042FX prints to acrylic, plastic, metal, glass, wood, polyester, polycarbonate and other rigid substrates making it the ideal solution for adding value with branding and decoration for myriad end uses. “Mimaki has provided a solution that perfectly suits the burgeoning personalisation industry coupled with the popularity of web-to-print,” confirms Lewis.
The UJF Series (including the 150mm head gap UJF-3042HG and the A2 bed UJF-6042) forms part of Mimaki’s industrial products range, which sits alongside the company’s textile and apparel and sign and graphics machines. These are all available through Hybrid’s specialist reseller network, with further details of the product lineup to be found at www.hybridservices.co.uk
