Mimaki JV300- 130/160

High-speed, high-quality printing is in high demand in the sign and graphics market. Mimaki, the first manufacturer of solvent-ink wide-format printers, has introduced two new wide format printers to its line of eco-solvent offerings, the JV300-130 and the JV300-160.

These printers deliver outstanding speed and stunning beauty, as a new global standard. The JV300-130/160 family uses reliable and patented inkjet technologies that ensure high-speed printing at up to 105.9 m2/h* by combining two newly developed staggered print heads and high-performance, quick-drying SS21 ink. Two new ink colors, orange and light black, have been developed for the SS21 ink line. Orange ink achieves a higher level of color reproducibility with a wider color gamut, and light black ink presents beautiful gradation printing. The range of print capabilities can be extended with these printers by using water-based Sb53 sublimation ink for direct or transfer printing.


The JV300-130/160 is compatible with solvent and water-based sublimation inks, and provides a wide range of applications including outdoor signage, posters, interior decorating and vehicle wrapping.

Outstanding Performance:

1. Advanced ink performance and innovative eco-solvent inkjet printing technology achieve outstanding speed

Newly developed print head and inkjet technology: Two newly-developed staggered print heads deliver a wider print swath. Each ink color has its own specific gravity and viscosity. To achieve precise ink droplet placements onto the media, Mimaki designed an optimum waveform, which allows the print head to jet each ink color at the appropriate jetting angle without losing excellent ink droplet circularity (Figure 1). Moreover, various ink droplet sizes are precisely placed from the minimum size of 4pL to the maximum size of 35pL. Small droplets create high-resolution and beautiful printing, and large droplets are very useful for speed printing. The Mimaki JV300-130/160 satisfies a wide range of customer requirements, including beautiful high-quality printing at productive speeds.

Quick-dry SS21 ink that achieves outstanding speed:

SS21 ink was developed based on Mimaki’s deep knowledge of inkjet printing and its unique technology heritage. SS21 ink dries quickly on media due to a good balance between ink penetration and solvent volatilization. High productivity is achieved through high-density printing at high-speed modes without blocking or bleeding.

2. SS21 ink creates value-added printings

A wide range of ink colors, including newly developed colors: SS21 ink has nine colors, including newly developed orange and light black. Depending upon the application, the optimum ink set is selected.

Orange ink broadens the range of color representation: By using the newly developed SS21 orange ink as a process color, 92% of the PANTONE color chart can be closely matched. Thanks to a wider color gamut with orange ink, food freshness can be simulated, and corporate colors can be faithfully represented (Figure 2).

Light black ink assists in beautiful monochrome image printing: Newly developed SS21 light black ink and superior gray-balance control produce accurate grayscale printing without unexpected color shifts, delivering smooth, non-grainy skin tones and grayscale gradation (Figure 3).

White ink accentuates ink colors: Due to larger ink droplet size, the JV300-130/160 is able to print white ink at higher density than a conventional solvent model. Accordingly, the degree of white ink opacity is increased. White base layer printing accentuates the brightness of color printing on transparent or opacity media.

3. Water-based sublimation ink Sb53 achieves high-density printing

Sb53 ink is a water-based sublimation ink that produces bright colors and enables high-density printing. The ideal print material is polyester, which is used for apparel fabric, sports uniforms, and swimsuits, as well as for soft signage. The sedimentary degree of the Sb53 ink is lower than a conventional sublimation ink, resulting in a much more stable print without uneven colours.

4. Superior print image quality control technology delivers stunningly beautiful printing

5. Solutions for uninterrupted print operation

Ink and media shortage, clogged nozzles, and other minor problems influence stable productivity. JV300 fully supports continuous printing with reliable technologies.
