Highlights of the Mimaki UJF-3042 Series

The Ability to get Creative

With a Mimaki UJF-3042 Series printer you can produce any number of imaginative items. A few examples include: custom smartphone covers, personalized writing instruments, announcement boards (on glass or other substrates), nameplates (both full color and etched), lenticular panels, membrane switch panels, photo album covers, custom wine bottles, and a wide range of novelty and gift items.

Variable Drop Printing

The advantage of variable drop printing is most apparent when printing color gradations in light or pastel colors.

White, Primer and Clear

Add White ink to print onto clear acrylic to create backlit panels or to print on wood, metal, or non-white surfaces. Mimaki Circulation Technology regularly circulates White ink between the supply and the print head to prevent settling. Primer helps the ink adhere to surfaces such as glass. Clear ink adds ‘pop’ and protection to finish a piece.

UV-LED Technology

Two models are available: UJF-3042FX, which can print on media up to 2″ thick (50 mm), and UJF-3042HG up to 5.9″ thick (150 mm).

Kebab Option

The Kebab option for UJF-3042HG model enables printing on cylindrical objects ranging from about one to 13 inches in length, with a diameter from 0.4 to 4.33 inches. Add this option to produce custom products such as personalized beverage bottles, candles, vases, cans, etc.

Automatic Primer Application Function

Both printers incorporate an automatic primer feature, simplifying pre-priming process, which is traditionally done manually by wiping or spraying. Mimaki’s inkjet primer cartridge is simply inserted into the corresponding ink slot of UJF-3042, enabling the primer to specifically target the print image area only.

Useful Functions to Ensure Print Quality

  • Mimaki Spray Suppressor System prevents satellite ink drops, ensuring higher print reliability, consistency, and quality.
  • Nozzle Recovery Function temporarily restores print quality, reducing potential downtime if maintenance issue should arise.
  • Mimaki Circulation Technology (MCT) is a newly developed white ink circulation system that prevents pigment sedimentation and reduces ink waste. Available on UJF-3042HG.

Mimaki’s UV-LED system uses less energy than other UV types, has a longer life and can print into media that could be damaged by higher-heat systems, allowing the machine to print directly on virtually almost anything, including heat-sensitive materials. Variable data printing is possible on a maximum size of 11.8″ x 16.5″ (420 x 297 mm)(A3).*Always test your intended materials before using primer. When printing with primer and white / clear ink, production speed is reduced to some extent.
