Fespa 2019: Mimaki to highlight newly launched new metallic UV ink

By 26 Apr 2019

Mimaki Europe, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutting systems, announced on February that it will release a UV-curable metallic ink, named MUH-100-Si. This will be the highlight at Mimaki stall during Fespa 2019, to be held at Messe Munich, Germany on 14-17 May.

The new ink strengthens Mimaki’s product offering and pushes the boundaries of graphic expression beyond that of ordinary UV flatbed inkjet printers. The ink is compatible with Mimaki’s UJF-7151plus printer, which produces high-quality print for an impressive range of applications, from gifts and novelty items to wide-format boards.

The new MUH-100-Si UV-curable metallic ink will bring a strong competitive edge to Mimaki customers, allowing them to provide added value to the brands who use their services. Supporting Mimaki’s ideology of “new technology for creating the next generation of digital printing”, the new ink demonstrates how digital print enables creative ideas to be realised highly efficiently in the product manufacturing process.

Bert Benckhuysen, senior product manager, Mimaki Europe comments: “We are excited to launch this metallic ink. At Mimaki, we dedicate ourselves to providing customers with products that will allow them to stand out within their markets. Not only will the new metallic ink ensure this, but it will also provide a much more efficient way for our customers to manufacture more luxurious and sophisticated products.”

Created by mixing a bright pigment into the ink, MUH-100-Si can place metallic ink directly onto the product without the need for a separate manual transfer process, as is the case when applying glitters or foils to produce a metallic effect. Decorative options such as printing both gloss and matte tones, texture expression with embossing effect, and full-colour metallic expressions can be achieved in-house by printing coloured ink overlaid on metallic ink.

Available for use with the UJF-7151plus printer, the metallic ink can be used for a wide range of applications, including items such as paper containers, films and novelty items.
