Mimaki Wide Format Printers Certified for Color Logic Process Metallic Color System

WEST CHESTER, OH--Color-Logic has extended its long relationship with Mimaki by certifying Mimaki JV400LX Series wide-format latex printers for use with the Process Metallic Color System. Since the early days of the Color-Logic process, Mimaki has been a valued partner, and the release of Mimaki latex printers with white ink--the first in the world--now extends that relationship.

Announcing the continued collaboration, Color-Logic Chief Technology Officer Richard Ainge commented: "Mimaki wide format printers have a long-proven compatibility with the Color-Logic process, and their release of the world's first latex printer with white ink capability means that Mimaki laser printer users can now achieve dramatic metallic special effects using metallic substrate. The Mimaki white ink enables graphic designers to block the effect of metallic substrates where the metallic effect is not desired. Using the Color-Logic software to create the necessary white ink masks significantly reduces design time, and the Color-Logic visualization software enables designers to accurately assess their metallic designs without expensive on-press test prints."

Mimaki boosts customers' competitiveness with its original ink jet technology and cutting technology. The company created the wide-format eco-solvent market and is now taking the lead in newer inkjet products including latex ink and solvent UV ink.
