Eco-friendly Water-based Ink
The innovative water based latex inks are odourless and feature no hazardous VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) and are HAPs (Hazardous Air Pollutants) free. This eco-friendly ink does not need special ventilating equipment and is better for the environment. Available in 4 colours (CMYK) plus white to provide endless versatility.
Mimaki latex inks come in eco-cartridges that can be repeatedly used by changing spent ink packs. This eco-cartridge method contributes to waste reduction and can provide ink at lower prices.
Ink pack capacity is 600 ml.
LX100 white ink is for 220 ml ink cartridge
The World’s First White Latex Ink
The addition of white ink provides the flexibility to print to a wide range of media including transparent PET, window decoration and shatterproof window film.
Mimaki Circulation Technology
Mimaki Circulation Technology (MCT) is a newly developed white ink circulation system that prevents pigment sedimentation and reduces ink waste.
Newly developed high-speed print heads
Two newly developed print heads with four rows of 320 nozzles per head are arranged in-line. The result is top quality, high speed printing.
Eight ink cartridges can be inserted and colour configuration can be selected at the time of installation. 6-colour mode features Orange, Green and white ink (CMYK Orange and Green + White), which is especially suitable for printing on transparent and coloured material. A double CMYK 4-colour mode can also be selected for higher productivity.
Variable drop sizes with a minimum size of 4 pl
The ink drop sizes can be selected to a minimum of 4 pl. Multidrop function provides three different drop sizes at once, producing fascinating, non-grainy and smooth printing results. Mimaki’s proprietary head control technology delivers unrivaled high definition & high resolution prints.
Excellent usage for outdoor and indoor applications
Latex ink fixes pigment to media because resin contained in the ink dissolves with the heater, forming membrane. Therefore, it can be printed on a wide range of media, including PVC film, banner material, backlit, blueback paper, and more. Non-coated media without acceptance layer, such as paper and textile, can also be printed with latex ink.
60°C cold cure expands capability for heat-sensitive media
Mimaki latex ink can be used to output on heat deformable or discolourable materials including PET. It also contributes to reduction of color blurring due to high temperature. Combining its excellent media capability with cold cure, Latex Ink can meet the diversified needs of clients in a finer, more versatile and higher quality manner.
* Depending on media, ink curing temperature needs 70°C or higher.
No drying time, immediately ready for post-processing
When using Mimaki latex inks, fixation and curing is immediate. Post-processing, such as lamination, can be performed immediately, dramatically increasing efficiency.
Fail-safe functions for continuous operation
Nozzle Recovery Function
Even when nozzle washing has no effect on troubled nozzle, the print image quality can be recovered temporarily.
* Nozzle Recovery Function is a temporary failure averting function and its recoverability is limited.
Uninterrupted Ink Supply System (UISS)
Two ink cartridges per colour are set in 4-colour mode. When the ink level of one cartridge is almost empty, the ink supply automatically switched to another cartridge of the same colour, preventing from stopping a print job due to running out of ink.
