[LA-160W] [LA-170W] are suitable to utilize with [UCJV300/150-160].

2. Operation speed equivalent with the high class models

Mimaki [LA-160W] [LA-170W] achieved the maximum operating speed is 7,500mm/min. With an affordable price, they can provide the same level of operation speed with upper class models. The combination use with [UCJV300/150-160] enables to duly contribute to your job, focusing quick response for UV ink property of instant curing upon UV light irradiating to save the ink drying time.

Operation speed of lamination is max. 7,500mm/min. and steplessly adjustable by dial. The temperature of warming function can be set to suit media up to 60 degree by every one degree from the operation panel and the laminating pressure is easily modified by handle. The take-up function of laminated print is added to be able to use by operator alone.

4. Safety design for the operator protection

Two safety functions are featured : an emergency stop and a protection by laser preventing rolling-in trouble. The safety functions to support the safer working environment to protect operator from an accident of rolling-in.

1. Optimum laminating film for UV print by reducing the Silvering

The unevenness of UV ink on the printed surface is likely to generate silvering by conventional laminating film.
[MV Laminate 310] applied more soft adhesive and weaker film in stiffness than the conventional ones, which reduces the silvering of UV print laminating to retain the essential beauty.

Silvering reducing mechanism

[MV Laminate 310] applied soft adhesive and weak film in stiffness to be more flexible to laminate along the unevenness of UV print surface and not to involve air bubbles.

Comparison of lamination of UV print (letters)

Silvering is reduced.

2. Glossy finish is provided with laminating

The surface of UV printing appears often unevenness and matte finish without glossiness. However laminating by [MV Laminate 310] can make the surface much more flat and provides the glossy finish and color brightness.

Comparison of lamination

Brilliant black and glossy feeling
