Mimaki Releases JV5 Printer

December 16, 2009

Japan-based Mimaki Engineering Co. Ltd. unveiled its new large-format direct and dye-sublimation printer, called the JV5-320DS. The machine, which is to enter the commercial market on January 8, 2010, enables direct printing on polyester substrates at a width of up to 3.2 metres.

The JV5-320DS machine is based on the solvent JV5-320S device, which was introduced in 2007 for the outdoor signage market. Mimaki released its new machine, with the “D” designation, because of what it sees a major growth in demand for signage on polyester textiles, for example, such as flags and banners – so-called soft signage.

JV5-320DS is newly equipped with an ink catcher to prevent inks from penetrating the fabric and staining the backside of the project. A new fan is designed to dry inks directly after printing. The machine also features Mimaki’s new Spray Suppressor System. The company’s MBIS (Mimaki Bulk Ink Supply System) feature is an option that enables an ink load of 2-litre containers for longer print runs.

JV5-320DS can hit a maximum resolution of 1,440 dpi. Print speeds range from 60.3 sqm/h at 540 x 720 dpi (for long-range viewing) to 44 sqm/h at 540 x 1,080 dpi (for short-range viewing).
