Mimaki’s exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland, Hybrid Services, launched the new compact, full-color Mimaki 3DUJ-2207 UV Inkjet 3D Printer. Previously the first to bring over 10 million colors to the 3D printing market with its larger-scale industrial counterpart, the 3DUJ-553, Mimaki now combines the same impressive color range and renowned build quality in a compact, affordable solution. With this latest offering, Mimaki aims to extend the reach and accessibility of its cutting-edge 3D printing technologies to an entirely new segment of customers.

The innovative 3D printing solution represents a huge step forward for detailing and post-processing, with the unique combination of its full-color capabilities and water-soluble support materials enabling super-fine details to be printed in vibrant color, and then beautifully preserved without the substantial breakage risks usually associated with manual cleaning, painting and finishing. With additional features such as Mimaki’s trademark clear resin, which can be utilized alone or mixed with colors to achieve varying levels of transparency, the new 3DUJ-2207 3D printer presents a robust, advanced 3D printing solution with an affordable price tag – all within a machine sufficiently compact to fit in an office elevator.

Mimaki 3DUJ-2207 Hybrid’s Managing Director, Brett Newman commented: “The new Mimaki 3DUJ-2207 delivers a powerful solution for the 3D print industry, setting a fresh benchmark for price and performance with its incredible feature set.”

“Encompassing significant functionality already proven on the larger Mimaki 3DUJ-553, we anticipate strong uptake from companies seeking to leverage full color 3D production,” he continued.

“Here at Mimaki, we do not stop at developing disruptive technologies – we make it our business to look even further beyond this, continually striving to find ways in which we can then accelerate the adoption of these technologies and drive the wider industry forward,” commented Danna Drion, Senior Marketing Manager at Mimaki Europe. “Our new 3DUJ-2207 3D Printer is a prime example of this. We had already raised the bar in 3D printing by delivering the world’s first 3D printer with over 10 million colors – but now, with the introduction of our new 3DUJ-2207 3D Printer, we are bringing these 10 million colors to a host of new customers, which in turn means new applications and an even quicker uptake of 3D printing technologies as a whole.”

Set to be commercially available worldwide from January 2021, the 3DUJ-2207 has been designed with functionality at its core, with the compact design and a 203 x 203 x 76mm build space just two of many key features which demonstrate its unique versatility and make it ideally suited for office environments. 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, the expansive high-definition color expression made possible with the Mimaki 3DUJ-2207 3D Printer is around twice that of powder bed manufacturing methods. This provides new possibilities for prototyping and enables the accurate reproduction of subtle color differences which 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.

Drion concluded: “By combining our technological expertise with a wealth of industry experience and market insight, we have been able to create an innovative, inspired solution that merges functionality, affordability and design in a way that really will be game-changing for a lot of creators. This launch will deliver a world of new possibilities to designers and product developers, for many of whom the idea of high-definition full-color 3D printing might previously have been out of reach, and that is something we are extremely proud of.”
