  • Some of the screens and printing samples in this website are artificial renderings.
  • Specifications are subject to change without notice.
  • All trademarks or registered trademarks are the property of their respective owners.
  • Inkjet printers print using extremely fine dots, thus colors may vary slightly following replacement of the printing heads. Also note that if using multiple printer units, colors may vary slightly among the units due to slight individual differences among the units.

Inks and substrates:
  • Please note that properties and adhesion, weather resistance etc. of ink and substrates can vary. Therefore please test materials before printing.
  • Some substrates require primer before printing. Please test materials beforehand or ask your sales representative.

Safety notice:

You are dealing with UV light sources that may harm your health. Please follow below guidelines strictly:

  • Do not look directly into the UV light source nor place your hand, or expose your skin directly to the UV light source.
  • Depending upon print mode, there might occur some VOC emittance from printed parts not yet cured and hardened.
  • In addition, please read the instructions and guidelines of the manual carefully and follow those.

UV LED Curing Technology

The Mimaki JFX500-2131 employs UV LED printing technology, which does not generate excessive heat, allowing the machine to print directly on a wide range of substrates, including heat-sensitive materials, without any media deformation.
Aqueous or solvent inks require post printing drying. This is eliminated using UV technology and consequently, the media is ready for laminating immediately after printing. The job turnaround time from printing to processing is shortened and improves work efficiency and productivity.

Amazing Print Speeds

Equipped with the new developed print head (6 print heads with 3 staggered configuration), the JFX500-2131 achieves production speeds of up to 60sqm/h.

Outstanding Print Quality

Intelligent Microstepping System (IMS)
The JFX500-2131 includes two units of Mimaki’s unique and highly-accurate linear scales controlled by an Intelligent Microstepping System (IMS) for fine step accuracy and dot placement. This results in less banding and the ability to print down to 2-point text with stunning clarity.

High Resolution up to 1200dpi and Variable Drops
High image quality is achieved by utilising a resolution up to 1200 x 1200 dpi and variable dot sizes. The minimum drop size is an fine 7 pico-liters that produces a smooth, natural gradation without granular appearance even in 4-colour mode.

Multiple Ink Options

Two types of ink are offered with the JFX500-2131.

  • LUS-150 (LED UV Stretchable Ink)
    The newly formulated LUS-150 ink offers less curing times resulting in a less tactile sticky feeling and it is flexible up to 150%.
  • LH-100 (LED UV Hard Ink)
    The JFX500-2131 also operates with Mimaki’s LH-100 inks. The LH-100 ink offers higher scratch and chemical resistance as well as colour reproduction.

Simultaneous white ink under and overprint
Print outstandingly colourful, bright images on transparent and coloured substrates with white ink under or overprint without slowing down the print speed.
White ink under and overprint
A. 4/6 colours only
Without white ink as a basis for overprinting, the colours are not as vivid as they should be.

B. 4/6 colours + white
With the white ink overlay print, the images are bright and vivid.

Mimaki Advanced Pass Systems (MAPS)Mimaki Advanced Pass Systems (MAPS)

The Mimaki Advanced Pass System (MAPS) effectively reduces bandings with multiple printing passes, using a gradational mask pattern. When this option is selected, UV curing is performed more gradually which diminishes any appearance of banding.

Other Useful Functions to Ensure Quality

  • Layout Pins for Trouble-Free Media Alignment. The JFX500-2131 is equipped with pins and a scale that simplifies the alignment procedures required in flatbed printing. Simply fix the substrate to layout pins, check placement with the scale, and edit the design data or printer settings accordingly.

Layout Pins for Trouble-Free Media Alignment

  • Nozzle Recovery Function temporarily restores print quality, reducing potential downtime if maintenance issue should arise.
  • Mimaki Circulation Technology (MCT) prevents pigment sedimentation of white ink, reducing ink waste.
