Mimaki has announced a clear ink for its popular UCJV300 series UV printer with layered printing capability. To simplify the process of creating clear effects, Mimaki is also offering the ARTISTA UV Texture Library featuring 29 texture swatches for Adobe Illustrator to provide a wealth of visual effects.


The additional clear ink offers a host of new design possibilities and expands business opportunities by creating compelling displays using gloss, matte or textured finish effects.


Flexible UV inks that cure instantly allow customers to quickly print and immediately laminate or deliver the finished product without waiting for drying. UV-curable inks also offer greater opacity with less ink consumption than other ink formulations.


Available in four different print widths ranging from 80cm to 1.6m, the Mimaki UCJV300 series delivers a remarkable range of applications and versatility with layered print technology, including newly developed four-layer and five-layer capabilities. An integrated cut functionality enables volume production of labels, decals, window clings, vehicle graphics and more.


Mimaki’s LUS-170 ink is GREENGUARD Gold certified, meaning that it meets the rigorous standards for low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.


Users can access the ARTISTA UV Texture Library when they install Mimaki’s RasterLink6Plus RIP software on a UCJV300 printer.
