New clear ink for JFX200
Hybrid Services, the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for Mimaki has announced the release of LH-100 clear ink for the JFX200-2513 flatbed LED UV printer to complement the existing LUS -150 and LH-100 LED UV curable inksets.
The new clear ink delivers glossy and matte finish effects, adding creativity and value to the finished product, while also replicates the effect of spot varnish too. Additionally, it can be output in multiple layers to enhance the vibrancy of colours or to create a more tactile finishing effect.
Applications, such as high end PoS, labels, textured finishes and even Braille are all now possible and companies involved in packaging can offer their clients deliver accurate simulations of finished products in an efficient and timely manner, with the combination of LED UV ink curing creating a touch dry finish immediately after printing.
Mimaki’s clear UV ink can be retro fitted to existing JFX200 machines with only minor hardware upgrades needed. Users should ensure that they have the latest firmware (Version 1.30 or later) and version of Mimaki’s RIP (RasterLink 6 Version 2.10 or later). Additionally, one of Hybrid’s demonstration JFX200 printers will be commissioned with white and clear inks alongside the process colours to enable visitors to the company’s showroom to compare the variety of possible configurations.
