Mimaki Europe has developed a clear material that can be processed by its flagship product 3DUJ-553. Remember? The UV curable full colour 3D printer has been unveiled for the first time at formnext 2019 where it made a real splash due to its ability to offer more than 10 million colours.
Created with designers in mind, the new MH-110PCL clear material aims to improve upon Mimaki’s previous 3D clear ink (MH-100CL) with increased transparency and negates any yellow tint, allowing artists, designers, architects. Available in a 4.8L ink bottle size, it is said to achieve more clear-cut, transparent modelling.
As seen with its predecessor, the new material could deliver applications across the same industries. The latter include art, architectural models, medical models, product design or cosmetics.
The clear material can also be mixed with coloured inks to create translucent-colour models. This allows for designs to have a broader range of colours and visuals than ever before. The use of clear and translucent colour models greatly benefits industries such as medical education through the ability to visualise internal organ structures in model form, with the colour variations allowing for medical conditions to be far more accurately depicted. MH-110PCL is also ideal for the expression of transparent parts required in product design and other fields such as architectural models, where windows and transparent exteriors are convenient means of showing the internal structure, a press release lays emphasis on.
“Here at Mimaki we strive to do everything we can to accommodate the needs of our customers. We realised the importance of having truly clear material and acted upon it straight away,” says Mark Sollman, Product Manager of Mimaki Europe. “We value quality just as much as the designers implementing our technologies and wish them every success with Mimaki, so we are delighted to be able to provide this new material for them. Naturally, it has made their models better than ever.”
