Mimaki to show at formnext 2017
Mimaki will be exhibiting for the first time at formnext 2017, the international exhibition and conference that focuses on the next generation of manufacturing technologies. The show will take place on 14th to 17th November in Frankfurt.
formnext 2017 marks the unveiling to the 3D industry of the Mimaki 3DUJ-553; the world’s first full-colour 3D printer capable of printing up to 10 million different colour combinations with ICC profiling.
Mimakiwill also be showing the UJF-7151plus UV LED direct-to-object flatbed printer to demonstrate its advanced UV inkjet printing technology, which serves as the base of the company’s 3D technology.
The Mimaki 3DUJ-553 printer jets successive layers of ink, which are instantly cured by UV light until the object is fully formed. Fine layers accumulate on the build tray to create one or several precise 3D models or parts. Where overhangs or complex shapes require support, the 3D printer jets a removable support material. It uses LED curing for reduced energy usage and is differentiated from other 3D printers in a number of aspects, including its ability to print full colour objects with more than 10 million colours. Colour profiles can be used to ensure accurate and consistent colour. This means no overpainting is required, saving time and labour.
In addition, it offers white ink, as well as a clear ink overcoat that adds vibrancy to the printed product. Its clear ink can also be combined with coloured ink to create half colour transparent models. Support materials can be removed with a simple water wash, eliminating the need to manually cut tags or other support structures.
Also on display will be the Mimaki UJF-7151plus flatbed UV printer. Geared to on-demand printing at industrial production levels of output, the UJF-7151plus is ideal for decorative printing on 3D models, as well as multi-layer printing on diverse materials, ranging from plastics and glass to metal and wood. The Mimaki 3DUJ-553 is based on the same proven technology that Mimaki has successfully deployed to the market with the UJF-7151plus flatbed UV printer.
Mimaki will be showing on stand C88, Hall 3.1 at form next 2017
