Mimaki's JV300 Plus Series Maxwell says that Mimaki recently introduced its new JV300 Plus series, which not only offers the expanded colors but has improved efficiencies of workflow as well. He explains that key features include the Mimaki Advance Pass System 4 (MAPS4). "This is the latest version of the Mimaki Advanced Pass System that utilizes an advanced algorithm pattern to reduce banding and delivering output that looks spectacular even at higher speeds." The unit also offers an advanced Take-Up device that compensates for uneven tension pulling during media wind-up, resulting in smooth winding. "For PSPs that prefer a distributed working environment, The JV300 Plus now includes Ethernet connectivity. In addition the new Mimaki Eco-cartridges offer a more sustainable printing process for customers who prefer the 440 ml cartridge ink delivery system. The Eco- cartridge is reusable, can be replenished by the user with a replaceable 600 ml ink bag, and provides larger run capacity and 15% savings in ink costs when compared with the 440 ml cartridges." Maxwell adds that the ID Cut func- tion, included in Mimaki RasterLink 6 Plus RIP software, adds registration marks and a bar code on the print. The barcode, read by the crop mark sensor on a Mimaki CG-FXII Plus cutter, con- tains cutting and rotation information, enabling these devices to automate the cutting process. Epson Expands Colors Inks Lopez notes that a major advantage of eco-solvent ink is the color gamut that these inks have been able to achieve. "For example, Epson's SureColor S80600 ink set with spot Orange and Red inks have given eco-solvent ink the ability to achieve 98.2% of the Pantone color library." Mimaki's CJV 150-160 series is available in 32-, 43-, 54- and 64-inches with print speeds up to 605 sq. ft/hr. Image courtesy of Mimaki USA.
