The new Mimaki 3DUJ-2207 UV Inkjet 3D Printer features full-colour, high-definition production in a compact design, yielding over 10 million colours. The scalable solution is aimed at driving accessibility to 3D printing while delivering cutting-edge technologies to a wider range of new customers. The 3DUJ-2207 Printer (the first to bring over 10 million colours to the 3D printing market with its larger-scale industrial counterpart, the 3DUJ-553) “combines the same colour range and build quality in a compact, affordable solution.” said the OEM. “The new solution represents a huge step forward for detailing and post-processing, with the unique combination of its full-colour capabilities and water-soluble support materials enabling super-fine details to be printed in vibrant colour, and then beautifully preserved without the substantial breakage risks usually associated with manual cleaning, painting and finishing,” said Mimaki. “With additional features such as Mimaki’s clear resin (which can be utilized alone or mixed with colours to achieve varying levels of transparency), the 3DUJ-2207 presents a robust, advanced 3D printing solution with an affordable price tag, all within a machine sufficiently compact to fit in an office elevator.”
Set to be commercially available worldwide beginning in January of 2021, the 3DUJ-2207, with a reduced 203 x 203 x 76 mm build space is ideally suited for office environments,” said Mimaki. “The 3D printer’s quiet performance and optional deodorizer minimize some of the primary disruptions usually associated with 3D printing technologies, ensuring maximum workability in busy workspaces. Utilizing UV-curing inkjet technology, its expansive high-definition colour is about twice that of powder-bed manufacturing methods. This provides new possibilities for prototyping and enables the accurate reproduction of subtle colour differences that are critical for many industrial design applications – such as medical and architectural modeling. Additional applications include small-scale models for design offices and educational settings, as well as collectible figures.
