Creating Unlimited Originality


The new UJF-3042MkII e is the successor model to the UJF-3042MkII.

Supports A3 size & 153 mm height.
UJF-3042MkII e is a flatbed UV inkjet printer that has further improved image quality and machine stability, while maintaining the operability that was highly acclaimed in the current model.

 

 

Dependable productivity with industry-leading printing speed

  • The UJF-3042MkII e is capable of printing approximately 38 A4-size sheets per hour. *Print conditions: 4-color, draft mode (600 × 600 dpi, 8 Pass)

UJF-3042MkII e: Print speed /4-color (C, M, Y, K) printing

 

Head layout capable of simultaneous two-layer printing

  • The staggered printhead arrangement enables simultaneous printing of two layers of color and spot colors, maintaining high productivity.
    UJF-6042MkII e and UJF-3042MkII EX e can be equipped with light color inks (Lc / Lm), thus CMYK + LcLm + Spot colors (W+W, W+Cl, W+Pr or Pr+Cl) color set is possible.

  • By adding light colors, smoother gradation and natural skin tones can be expressed.

  • *Dependent on the ink-setting; simultaneous printing might not be possible in every case.

Configuration of printhead

 

Advanced mechanical structure assists value-added print products

Table-driven printing delivers superior quality image

  • To reduce printer unit vibration, the print table moves vertical direction during printing without moving the upper unit of the printer. In addition, to achieve higher positional accuracy, two ball screws are installed on both sides of the table to assist table movement. The precise droplet placement reduces-gloss banding issues and enables creating more valuable print products. In addition, the noise level of this model is remarkably reduced compared to the conventional model; thus, this printer can be installed in an office.


Direct printing on an object up to 153 mm thick

  • The printable object can be as thick as 153 mm (*1). Moreover, the advanced sensor detects even a transparent object (*2). The new model accepts a range of materials with simple set-up steps.

  • *1: To utilize this feature, spacers are required depending on the thickness of the object. The spacer is one of accessories.

  • *2: Depending on object size or form, the sensor may not detect the object properly.

 
Fully covered print table improves the safeness of the printer

  • The fully covered print table prevents accidents involving operator contact with the printer carriage. It also maintains print quality by reducing dust adhesion.

High-performance UV-curable inks expand the range of applications

Flexible LUS-120 ink can print on soft materials

  • The flexible LUS-120 ink stretches up to 170% and delivers beautiful and durable print results on soft materials including leather or polyurethane.

 

Flexible LUS-150 ink has versatile adhesion capability on to various materials

  • The LUS-150 ink stretches up to 150% and delivers vibrant color representation. In addition to its use on soft materials, this ink adheres very well to rigid materials such as glass or acrylic. Examples of ideal applications are indoor signs or trophies.

 

Rigid LH-100 ink is highly scratch resistant

  • The LH-100 ink features high scratch-resistant, is chemically resistant, and has excellent color reproducibility. Ideal applications are smartphone cases, key fobs made of resins or plastics.

 

PR-200 primer increases ink adhesion

  • The PR-200 primer enhances the ink adhesion. The primer can be applied to the required areas by ink-jetting. This feature retains the texture of the material, which is not possible with manual primer application. The PR-200 can be used on resin, glass and metal materials without affecting their texture.

 

 

The clear varnish ink offers valuable new print effects

  • MCC (Mimaki Clear Control) controls high-quality clear prints. This technique adds a glossy finish on desired areas and a premium appearance to the print. However, clear-ink prints tend to be ruined by dusts adhering to uncured inks. In order to minimize dust adhesion and air bubbles on the print, MCC shortens the ink curing time by processing the clear ink print and UV-light irradiation simultaneously. MCC provides a gorgeous gloss finish and a stylish matte finish. Moreover, an embossed print is available by multiple applications of clear ink on specific areas; it adds a dimensional appearance to the print and enables representing the freshness of food or elaborate designs.

129 types of texture library are ready

  • By installation of Mimaki RIP software [ RasterLink ], the [ ARTISTA UV Texture Library ] of the equipment of 129 types of texture pattern will be registered to your PC as the swatch in Adobe Illustrator. Various textures are ready starting the [ BASIC ] pattern for elemental expression and the [ ARTISTIC ] pattern with floral-motif and symbols, the [ MODERN ] with visual effect.

  • Expression of those textures with the clear ink can realize the print for more elaborated design.

 

ARTISTA UV Texture Library Texture List

  • [ARTISTA UV Texture Library] (129types)

  • * BASIC (44 types) : Basic pattern

  • * ARTISTIC (45 types) : Patterns give a design effect with floral-motif and symbols

  • * MODERN (40 types) : Patterns give a visual effect

 

MIMAKI's image quality control technology to ensure beautiful prints

Improved image quality by supporting MFD2 (Mimaki Fine Diffusion 2)

  • Supports MFD2 (Mimaki Fine Diffusion 2) for improved image quality. MFD2 controls the position of the dots to reduce graininess, suppress unintended noise and color irregularities, and enable beautiful prints.

 

Mimaki Expand Color improves color representation

  • The input profile "Mimaki Expand Color" included in our genuine RIP software enables representing more vibrant solid colors and brighter skin tones than a conventional input profile and provide more attractive print results with high-contrast color shades; bright parts are brighter and dark parts are darker.

Effectiveness of "Mimaki Expand Color"

 

Mimaki Advanced pass System 4 (MAPS4) minimizes banding and uneven color printing

  • Generally, swath boundaries are straight lines. Therefore, a slight misalignment between boundaries causes banding or uneven color printing. MAPS4 reduces banding and uneven color printing with blurred boundaries similar to gradation printing.

  • MAPS4 Applied - Banding and uneven color printing are reduced by scattering swath boundaries. Beautiful print image is obtained.


  • No MAPS4 - Bandings appear on swath boundaries. Print quality is remarkably degraded because banding is recognizable on each boundary.

 

Waveform control and variable dot printing achieve smooth and quality print image

  • Each ink color has its own specific gravity and viscosity. To achieve a precise placement of ink droplets onto the media, Mimaki has designed an optimum waveform control technique that allows the printhead to jet each ink color at an optimum angle, maintaining excellent ink droplet circularity. Thanks to precise ink droplet landing, three different droplet sizes (5 pl to 22 pl *) are properly used for providing optimum print results.

  • * The maximum droplet size is 27 pl when using white high-dense mode.

 

Maintenance functions ensure worry-free operation

NCU automatically detects and recovers clogged nozzles

  • Clogged nozzles are detected automatically by monitoring ink droplets with sensors. When clogged nozzles are located, these are automatically cleaned, reducing waste printing. Nozzles are checked per transfer file.

  • * NCU is a standard feature of UJF-6042MkII e and UJF-3042MkII EX e, and an optional feature of UJF-3042MkII e.

 

NRS for maintaining productivity

  • If the clogged nozzles are not recovered after cleaning through the NCU function, the NRS selects substitute nozzles and then restarts printing. This is a significant novelty, since previously, when nozzle cleaning fails, the printhead has to be repaired by a technician, and the printing operation ceases until the printhead is repaired. The NRS* allows the printer to continue printing without interruption by using non-defective nozzles as substitutes for defective nozzles until the technician arrives. (*)

  • * NRS may not be activated depending on print modes.

 

Mimaki Circulation Technology (MCT) minimizes downtime

  • MCT is used in the ink tank and channel. The white ink is circulated at regular intervals to prevent pigment sedimentation that leads to malfunctions of the printhead.

 

Connected digital printing

Supports MDL (Mimaki Device Language) commands to automate the printing process

  • Mimaki offers command sets to enable customer production systems and peripheral devices to control our printers. Through applying these commands, the position and height of the media setting table, the start of printing, and other printer operations can be controlled. It also allows for the acquisition of remaining ink level and error information from the printer.

  • Regarding the MDL command, customers are able to build systems optimized to their individual applications by developing the necessary software using technical information (SDK) provided from Mimaki. The system will contribute to automation and labor saving in customers business.
