Amsterdam, May 14, 2018
Mimaki Europe, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, announced today that the company’s UCJV Series with LUS-200 inks will carry the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty, the most comprehensive finished graphics warranty in the industry. The warranty will be available in Europe, mid-summer 2018.
The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty provides full, non-prorated protection for the intended life of each graphic, including fading, cracking, peeling and other aspects of the graphic performance. 3M offers this level of assurance based on its expertise in weathering technology and rigorous testing of ink and printer combinations. The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty covers up to eight years on some interior finished graphics, and up to six years on some outdoor applications like vehicle wraps when using 3M media and installed using 3M guidelines.
“3M is proud to offer graphic manufacturers a wide selection of guaranteed premier printing solutions,” said Steve Meinz, global portfolio manager for 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “Working with Mimaki, we are excited to provide our customers with an expanded portfolio of 3M™ MCS™ Warranty printing solutions.”
The new UCJV300 Series printers offer in-line cutting capabilities and feature layered print technology, such as four-layer and five-layer for transitional or double facing images. Their prints are instantly cured at even the highest production speeds, allowing customers to quickly print and immediately move to the finished product. The LUS-200 inks are environmentally friendly and energy efficient. They are ideal for a wide range of applications, including those with curved surfaces like vehicle wraps and fleet graphics.
“We are excited that this collaboration with 3M will elevate the performance capabilities of the products and solutions supported by our systems,” said Bert Benckhuysen, Product Manager EMEA at Mimaki Europe.
“The ability to offer a warranty of eight years on some interior graphics and up to six years on outdoor solutions expands our clients’ portfolio flexibility and ensures peace of mind.”
