Mimaki USA, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, announces the release of its “330 Series”, a new line of large-format inkjet printers. Designed and developed from the ground up, these new printers showcase 20 years of accumulated knowledge and technological expertise.
The two flagship models introduced in the 330 series are the JV330-130/-160 and CJV330-130/-160. Catapulting from the highly popular 100 Series, these new printers offer impressive image quality, high productivity, and value-added functions, providing new middle and high-end buying options.
The 330 Series incorporate “Mimaki Weaving Dot Technology (MWDT),” a printing technology that changes the order of ink droplet placement depending on printing conditions. This suppresses the unexpected occurrence of streaks or uneven printing caused by slight individual differences in the print head or subtle deviations in adjustment.
We have also developed a new input profile, “Deep Color Natural,” a standard format for color management. Making full use of the wide color gamut of the market-proven “SS21” and our eco-solvent inks, this new profile reproduces fully vivid solid color expression, natural gray tone, and natural skin tone, which was difficult to produce simultaneously in the past.
The JV330-130/-160 and CJV330-130/-160 boast printing speeds of 21.0m2/h in standard mode with 4 color (C, M, Y, K), and 13.2m2/h with 8 colors (C, M, Y, K, Lc, Lm, Lk, Or), of high productivity.
Two additional high value-added functions now offered are the “XY slitter” and the “Media changer,” both promising to save on work and labor time. The XY slitter has an in-line function that cuts all sides of the media after printing, enabling automatic slit processing without removing media. This significantly shortens post-process work and reduces the previously required space needed for manual cutting. The Media Changer accommodates up to three media rolls, allowing the operator to change media by simply turning the handle with light force.
The new 330 Series models are compatible with “Mimaki Remote Access (MRA),” allowing you to remotely operate the machine and check its operation status from your smartphone or PC on the same network. Since introducing the world’s first eco-solvent inkjet printer, “JV3-130S/160,” to the market in 2002, Mimaki has led the industry by always focusing on customers’ needs for high image quality and quick delivery. The new 330 Series rises to that demand and delivers with “Something New and Something Different.”
