Mimaki USA, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, announces a 3-liter External Ink Supply Option complementing its JFX600-2513, a large-format flatbed UV inkjet printer. Global sales of this new optional item are scheduled to begin in January 2023.
This new 3-liter External Ink Supply Option increases the ink tank capacity of the JFX600-2513 to a maximum of 3 liters per color while allowing for the 3-liter tanks to be replenished from 1-liter ink bottles.
The 3-liter ink tank capacity reduces the frequency of refilling inks, resulting in improved work efficiency. In addition, this new option enables ink replenishment even during printing processes, further reducing printer downtime, allowing for longer operating time, and improved productivity.
Automatic white ink agitation functionality is integrated into the 3-liter External Ink Supply Option, eliminating the need for manual mixing, and reducing operator workload. Weight sensors are incorporated as well to detect the weight of remaining inks, enabling a more accurate determination of ink levels.
Mimaki’s JFX600-2513 printers take advantage of the proprietary Mimaki “MDL commands,” allowing customers to control printers from production systems or peripheral devices. The MDL command enables unmanned, labor-saving, automated operation of respective printing processes, such as the transport of print media. In collaboration with this newly announced 3-liter External Ink Supply Option, the MDL command is designed to support extensive continuous automated printing sessions.
