Mimaki launches a new Desktop FDM 3D Printer, co-branded with Sindoh
The Mimaki 3DFF-222 printer is the second 3D printer of Mimaki after the large-format Mimaki 3DUJ-553. Co-branded with Sindoh, a South Korea- based manufacturer of 3D printer, the FFF (Fused Fabrication Filament) solution aims to achieve well-known applications such as jigs, three-dimensional signage in combination with Mimaki’s range of LED UV flatbed printers.
Specifications revealed by the company showed the ability to print parts up to 210mm x 200mm x 195mm (W x D x H) and to ensure remote monitoring of each print job through a Mimaki app. Manufactured with the company’s expertise in graphic arts, this solution also offers a range of benefits for sign and display printers.
“Sign and display printers can also benefit with time and cost savings through efficient in-house manufacturing of eye-catching colourful indoor signs and channel letters, which are 3D printed first and then decorated using Mimaki’s UV printers in LD mode, allowing high quality print on three-dimensional objects”, explains Bert Benckhuysen, Senior Product Manager at Mimaki Europe.
Other features show that the 3D printer can process PLA (Poly-Lactic Acid) filament – eco-plastic made from corn and potato starch -. It integrates an automatic filament supply and auto filament cutting, as well as a flexible metal bed that facilitates the removal of the 3D printed model.
Moreover, it seems that the manufacturer took into account current issues related to the release of particles by desktop 3D printers. The 3DFF-222 printer is equipped with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter that prevents the discharge of foul air.
“Flexibility and ease-of-use are key features of the new desktop 3D printer. It’s been developed so that you can have it sitting in your office without disruption,” states Bert Benckhuysen. “The 3D printer also complements our sign and display printers seamlessly. The 3DFF-222 is capable of inexpensively producing customised print jigs, which can be used to stabilise print quality when printing on flatbed direct-to-shape UV LED printers from our UJF Series.”
The 3D printer will be commercially available on April 2019.
