Mimaki LA-160W Laminator

The Mimaki LA-160W laminator is a game changer for printing professionals looking to protect their printed works of art from prolonged contact with elevated levels of abrasion, moisture, contaminants, or chemicals that may diminish their longevity. This laminator is equipped with a warming function available to heat up to a maximum of 60 degrees Celsius/140 degrees Fahrenheit to help reduce silvering caused by the unevenness of a print surface as a result of tiny air bubbles that are caught between the print and the overlaminate film. This undesirable effect is most often noticeable around the dark areas of a print.

Some of the best features of this particular model are its user-friendliness and safety design. Other important benefits include fast throughput speeds, easy access to pressure handle and foot pedal, and the take-up reel makes it easy for one person to operate the entire process.

The Latest Technology That Makes the Cut

The appropriate cutter can expedite a shop’s printing operations, allowing it to run seamlessly and stay at the forefront of technology. Fortunately, the latest advancements in cutters have significantly simplified the processes for print and graphics shops. Integrating a cutter into your shop’s workflow enables the creation of personalized decals, signage, promotional items, and corrugated packaging, broadening your market reach significantly.

For those considering a new cutter, finding the perfect machine for your shop requires thorough research and asking pertinent questions. Which applications is the cutter ideally suited for, and does it align with the media you plan to work with? If your printing involves a variety of materials, you’ll require a cutter capable of handling them all. Are additional tools or accessories necessary? How much space will it require? Will it allow you to expand your offerings? Most importantly, what is the financial investment required?

The Right Cutter for the Job

Discover cutting solutions from industry veterans like Graphtec, designed to accelerate your production and diversify your product line. Whether it’s complex contours or straightforward cuts, Graphtec is up to the task. Graphtec offers multiple solutions, from the FC9000 Series, their most advanced and versatile roll-fed cutting plotter, to the CE7000 Series. High precision cutting capabilities with printed and unprinted materials are possible with the FC9000 Series- the ultimate finishing solution for the wide format signage, apparel, and automotive industries.

The Right Media for the Job

Selecting the appropriate media for your cutter is essential, as it can save you precious time and prevent material waste. Opting for high-quality media ensures that your cutter’s blade can effortlessly glide through, creating smooth, sharp edges with precision, like cutting through butter! With dialed-in pressure and force, the blade should perform clean perforated (perf) cuts and smooth kiss (die) cuts that easily separate from the release liner, like on decals.

LexJet offers excellent vinyl options like LexJet Extreme AquaVinyl™ PSA, a long-lasting, waterproof vinyl backed with a permanent but removable adhesive for outdoor signs and vehicle decals. It is so durable that it carries a 12-month outdoor warranty against fading, peeling, cracking, bleeding, and running when used in conjunction with pigmented (UV) inks. This aqueous-compatible waterproof vinyl is durable enough to be used outdoors or on vehicles for up to 12 months.

The super-scratch-resistant coating eliminates the need for lamination. LexJet Extreme AquaVinyl™ PSA is compatible with all aqueous inkjet printers, whether they use dye or pigment inks or thermal or piezo printheads.

Another great option is LexJet TOUGHcoat™ AquaVinyl™ PSA,  a 5-mil adhesive-backed vinyl with a white point that enables bright, colorful photos to be printed on a durable, weather-resistant surface.

The TOUGHcoat™ layer provides such exceptional resistance to water and scratching that graphics printed on this material will last up to 8 months outdoors without lamination. Prints will last up to two years outdoors when laminated with LexJet Elite Matte UV or Elite Luster UV laminates.

The super smooth, bright-white surface and superior ink-saturation properties of this material provide deep rich colors and the expanded gamut needed to produce great-looking photos or graphics with hard-to-hit spot colors.

The strong, permanent solvent-based adhesive sticks to most popular sign substrates and removes cleanly for up to 90 days. LexJet TOUGHTcoat™ AquaVinyl™ PSA is compatible with all aqueous inkjet printers, whether they use dye or pigment inks or thermal or piezo printheads.
