MIMAKI USA Wins 2014 SGIA Product of the Year Award for JV400SUV Printer




Mimaki USA, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, was recently awarded the prestigious Product of the Year Award in the Roll-to-Roll UV (under 96-inch) category for the JV400SUV printer. The awards were presented by the Specialty Graphic and Imaging Association (SGIA) at its annual convention, October 22-24, 2014, in Las Vegas.

“We appreciate SGIA’s recognition of the JV400SUV printer,” said Ken VanHorn, Director, Marketing and Business Development, Mimaki USA. “This unique Mimaki-engineered platform addresses a need in the industry for fleet and graphic display by delivering the flexibility and quality of solvent with the exceptional performance only achievable with UV curing technology.”

The Product of the Year Awards compare output from competing devices using a common test file designed by SGIA. The prints are reviewed by a panel of judges, each with a background and expertise in digital printing and imaging. The judges look for color appeal, detail and tonality, and the output is also judged on how closely it matches the test print.

JV400SUV Series: Brighter, Faster, Flexible UV Printer
The JV400SUV Series – available in 54- and 64-inch models – combines the flexibility of solvent ink with the durability of UV cured inks. This unique chemistry results in smooth, glossy, scratch-resistant prints that simulate the appearance of being coated yet retain the color brightness expected from a solvent printer. This exclusive technology pins the UV ink droplets to the material surface, delivering higher quality images and high speed production, while the Mimaki cool LED curing technology facilitates distortion-free printing on heat-sensitive media including vinyl and films.
