Mimaki Launches Pure Clear Ink to Produce Glass/Acrylic-like Transparency on 3D Pinter
17 May 2022: Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. has released the Pure Clear ink “MH-110PCL” for use in the Mimaki UV-curable full-color 3D inkjet printer “3DUJ-553.” The ink is capable of depicting the clear expressions as intended by designers and architects, which is expected to be used in product design for home appliances and cosmetics, as well as in design mock-ups and design verification for industrial products.
The newly developed pure clear ink “MH-110PCL” reduces the yellowish tint, evident in the conventional “MH-100CL” clear ink, thus enabling a more clear-cut, transparent modeling. It is also suitable for use in medical and architectural models requiring visualization to confirm internal structures. In the field of 3DCG design, the ink is eligible for use in the expression of artworks, etc.
As with the conventional “MH-100CL” clear ink, the pure clear “MH-110PCL” ink is not only limited to the expression of transparency but can also be combined with color inks (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) for the reproduction of translucent color (transparent with color) expressions.
Mimaki 3D Printer “3DUJ-553,” featuring the “full color modeling capability with more than 10 million colors,” allows for use in designs emphasizing a broader range of colors and visuals than ever before with the addition of the clear and translucent color expressions enabled by the transparent pure clear ink “MH-110PCL.”
Eligible applications for the combination of Mimaki UV-curable full-color 3D inkjet printer “3DUJ-553” and Pure Clear ink “MH-110PCL” includes product design prototyping, medical and architectural fields, as well as 3DCG design modeling.
Pure Clear Ink “MH-110PCL” is only compatible with Mimaki UV-curable full-color 3D inkjet printer “3DUJ-553”. For the initial installation of MH-110PCL, the optional product (OPT-J0510: PCL support kit) and the replacement by a Mimaki service personnel are required.
