Mimaki Europe, in conjunction with Mimaki USA, a leading manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, announces the launch of its new compact, full-color 3DUJ-2207 UV Inkjet 3D Printer. The 3DUJ-553, Mimaki combines the same color range and build quality in a compact, affordable solution.
The innovative 3D printing solution represents a step forward for detailing and post-processing, with the combination of its full-color capabilities and water-soluble support materials enabling super-fine details to be printed in vibrant color, and then preserved without the substantial breakage risks usually associated with manual cleaning, painting and finishing. Included are additional features such as Mimaki’s trademark clear resin, which can be used alone or mixed with colors to achieve varying levels of transparency.
Set to be commercially available worldwide from January 2021, the 3DUJ-2207 is a compact design at a 203 x 203 x 76 mm build space. The 3D printer’s quiet performance and optional deodorizer minimize some of the primary disruptions usually associated with 3D printing technologies, ensuring maximum workability in busy workspaces.
Using UV-curing inkjet technology, the high-definition color expression is around twice that of powder bed manufacturing methods. This provides new possibilities for prototyping and enables the accurate reproduction of subtle color differences that are critical for many industrial design applications such as medical and architectural modeling. Additional applications include small-scale models for design offices and educational settings, as well as collectible figures.
