Mimaki Europe has announced that the company’s UCJV series of wide format printers with LUS-200 inks will carry the 3M MCS Warranty; the most comprehensive finished graphics warranty in the industry.


The 3M MCS Warranty provides full, non-prorated protection for the intended life of each graphic, including fading, cracking, peeling and other aspects of the graphic performance. 3M offers this level of assurance based on its expertise in weathering technology and rigorous testing of ink and printer combinations. The 3M MCS Warranty covers up to eight years on some interior finished graphics, and up to six years on some outdoor applications such as vehicle wraps when using 3M media and installed using 3M guidelines.


Mimaki is exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland by Hybrid Services Ltd, and the new UCJV300 series printers offer in-line cutting capabilities and feature layered print technology, such as four-layer and five-layer for transitional or double facing images. Prints are instantly cured at even the highest production speeds, allowing customers to quickly print and immediately move to the finished product. 


The LUS-200 inks are environmentally friendly, energy efficient and ideal for a wide range of applications, including those that feature curved surfaces such as vehicle wraps and fleet graphics.


“We are excited that this collaboration with 3M will elevate the performance capabilities of the products and solutions supported by our systems,” said Bert Benckhuysen, product manager EMEA at Mimaki Europe. “The ability to offer a warranty of eight years on some interior graphics and up to six years on outdoor solutions expands our clients’ portfolio flexibility and ensures peace of mind.”


The warranty will be available in Europe from mid-summer 2018.
