1. High value-added print
"2.5D Texture Maker" that enables easy creation of smooth semi-stereoscopic 2.5D data
The "Surface Imaging (*1)" that we have been proposing includes "Emboss Print", which makes the surface look bumpy with many layers of UV ink. Although thicker layers can increase the bumpiness, smoother expression is only achieved by stacking stepped layers, so there was a need to manually prepare the data for each layer.
*1 Mimaki's value-added print technology using UV inkjet printer
The "JFX200-2513 EX" allows you to create semi-stereoscopic 2.5D print data for stepped layers that are sized differently, simply by common Illustrator/Photoshop operations and RasterLink6Plus (standard accessory).
Using the "2.5D Texture Maker (*2)" enables simple, smooth, semi-stereoscopic 2.5D print such as interior materials with printed bricks and woodgrain texture, an elevation of thick ink of an oil painting and embossed letters of signage, of which texture entices you to touch.

2. High productivity
a) Print speed in white-simultaneous printing has improved 200% of the conventional model
The newly developed head unit is adopted to enable production without reducing speed even in white & color simultaneous printing. This has increased the productivity 200%(*1) compared to the "JFX200-2513" by resolution.
*1 Comparison made between JFX200-2513 at Hi-Speed mode (12.5m2/h :134.5 sq. ft/h) and JFX200-2513 EX at Hi-Speed mode (25m2/h :269.0 sq. ft/h) / (4C + Spot Color, 300x450dpi, 12P, Bi, Nor) vs (4C/4C + Spot Color, 300x450dpi, 6P, Bi, Nor)
b) Higher-grade productivity realized by adding the new print mode
"JFX200-2513 EX" adopts the new "Draft mode" to provide a higher-grade productivity, realizing a maximum print speed of 35m2/h (376.7 sq. ft/h)(*2). It can realize production 140% faster than the conventional model "JFX200-2513" with a maximum speed of 25m2/h (269.0 sq. ft/h).

3. Stability and safety
a) NCU & NRS automatically detects missing nozzles and performs recovery
NCU (Nozzle Check Unit) detects the status of nozzles automatically. When the NCU detects a missing nozzle, it automatically performs cleaning. If cleaning does not solve the problem, NRS (Nozzle Recovery System) automatically replaces the defective nozzles with other nozzles, which enables users to continue their operation without waiting for service representative.
b) Links with external stop interface allow users to meet safety standards that are different by factory
Other than the standard emergency stop switch, customers can also have the printer work with safety measures that suit their environment.
The product can support various safety standards depending on the customer, including safety light curtain and safety mat.
4. Upgraded usability
a) Work efficiency improved by adding the vacuum-controlling foot switch
With the JFX200-2513 EX, you can use not only the ON/OFF switch on the operation panel, but also a foot pedal to operate the vacuum switch that ensures stable print by adsorbing media to the bed surface.
The foot pedal improves work efficiency when the user has no hands free such as for printing on large-size boards.
b) Ethernet connection supported
In addition to the conventional USB connection, connection via Ethernet is now available.
It is a convenient connection method when connecting a single PC to multiple printers.
Setup is easy; just add cables to the existing office network environment.
