Everything You Need to Know about UV LED Printing

Maybe you’ve never had a UV printer and are wondering about the benefits. Perhaps you already have a UV printer and are ready to move up and speed up to boost production. Here’s your chance to learn about the latest technology to grow your business.

Let’s start with the benefits of UV LED print technology.

  1. A broad range of applications — Minimal heat output makes it easy to print on heat-sensitive media. Limited heat equals stable calibration.
  2. High productivity — No lamp warmup time eliminates wait time.
  3. High durability for cost savings — Long-lasting LEDs, so no lamp change downtime and cut cost of consumable.
  4. Energy savings — Low energy consumption with LEDs for power savings.
  5. Sustainability — LED lamps don’t contain mercury so they eliminate mercury disposal. LEDs don’t produce ozone gas so no need for extraction by ventilation.

Technology to match your growth 

What if you could introduce UV technology to your operations so that it is in step with your needs? Mimaki makes it easy.

Mimaki UJV100-160 64” roll-to-roll is an affordable entry-level UV-LED printer. Dot position and feed correction are done automatically, reducing operator workload. UVJ100-160 delivers high-quality prints and high speeds, combining stability and productivity in a competitively priced unit.

If a print and cut better meets your needs, consider Mimaki’s UCJV300 Series.   The UCJV300 print-and-cut family offers in-line cutting capabilities and features multi-layer printing for transitional or double-facing images. Graphics are instantly cured, so you can efficiently create applications that will meet your customers’ needs.

When the timing is right, super-size it with the super wide Mimaki 126” UJV55-320  printer. This UV-LED printer features seven ink colors, including white, so you can print oversized graphics and panels. Plus, you can print simultaneously onto two rolls. Applications include banners, retail displays, wallpaper, and more.

What FSC Certification Means and How the FSC System Works

According to the FSC, “the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) verifies that forest-based materials produced according to our rigorous standards are credibly used along the product’s path from the forest to becoming finished goods.” Being certified means that we are committed to ensuring that the products we offer our customers follow the appropriate process from start to finish, from the forest to the finished product in our warehouse.

Why It Matters

When you purchase LexJet media with the FSC label, you can trust that the products align with your business’s sustainability goals. “The FSC label on a finished product signals that the materials used during production have met the chain of custody requirements at every step in the supply chain, from sourcing to distribution.”
