Onyx Graphics, Inc., today announced it has added support for both the Mimaki JFX200-2513 flatbed and Mimaki JV300 Series roll-based printers. The drivers, and twelve other Mimaki drivers, are available for all ONYX software version 11.1.2 RIP and workflow products.
The Mimaki JFX200-2513 flatbed printer is the company’s 4-foot by 8-foot model with the capability to print onto thick substrates; it offers the ability to produce a diverse range of prints for both indoor and outdoor use. It is ideally suited for applications such as backlit displays, signs and posters, interior décor, glass and metal decorative panels and more. Its four- by eight-foot landscape-oriented format is small enough to fit into most sign and graphic print shops. White and clear (varnish) inks are available. The UV-LED lamps offer reduced energy consumption and a longer lamp lifetime.
The Mimaki JV300 Series roll-based printers include newly developed printheads in a staggered configuration and inkjet technology with precise dot control that delivers higher productivity without sacrificing quality. The JV300 Series printers include eight ink channels and a variety of colors to provide the flexibility to produce nearly any application. It uses fast-drying, eco-solvent inks that can print on hundreds of media choices for signage and graphic applications. Alternatively, users can install dye-sublimation inks for textile, apparel and soft signage production.
Onyx Graphics recommends ONYX ThriveTM print workflow software for the Mimaki JFX200-2513 and JV300 Series printers. ONYX Thrive software is a scalable solution based on Adobe® PDF Print Engine technology enabling users to achieve brighter, more vibrant images; reduce manual intervention and eliminate repetitive tasks.
