Increased throughput with “mount while print” toggle function

Mimaki, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutting systems, today announced the availability of a new model in its popular JFX200 product family. The UV-LED flatbed JFX200-2531 builds on the success of the entry level JFX200-2513 model with twice the printing area and a unique “toggle print” function that increases throughput by allowing operators to mount one board while another is printing

“The current JFX200-2513 has seen great receptivity in the market,” said Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing of Mimaki EMEA. “But ourMimaki 1 customers are always looking for more! And in this case, they asked for the same great performance but with a larger table. The JFX200-2531 meets that requirement with twice the printing area. And we even took it a step further by including the “toggle print” ability for continuous operation and increased throughput.”

The new large flatbed UV-curable inkjet printer is compatible with media as large as 2,5 x 3,1 metres, increasing the application range to accommodate large signs, wall decorations, doors and other large items. It can also accommodate two signage boards of the popular size of 1.220 mm × 2.440 mm (4 ft × 8 ft), allowing organisations to benefit from the added productivity enabled by the toggle print function. “The JFX200-2531 is the ideal flatbed printer for growing sign and display companies,” Horsten added.
