Mimaki is bringing out two new roll-to-roll LED UV print-and-cut solutions - the UCJV300-160 and UCJV150-160. The former is is a four-colour machine while the latter can accommodate up to seven colours. UK distributor Hybrid Services will host the UK and Irish debut of the machine at The Print Show in October, and both will be available in the last quarter of the year.
The UCJV300-160 features a four-layer capability that “gives print companies the opportunity to offer a unique product," said de la Roche, national sales manager at Hybrid. "It's possible to produce a dynamic graphic that morphs its image or colour scheme depending on the light source - a distinctive capability that enables print companies to produce high impact, high margin."
The new systems will ship with updated RasterLink6 plus Rip software. This version includes an ID Cut function. It also includes a FineCut plug-in for Adobe Illustrator, allowing a print preview for four-layer printing that enables operators to preview the transition day/night effect before printing. RasterLink6 plus now also supports PDF 1.5 and above.
