70 • October 2017 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S O C T O B E R 2 0 1 7 Product Review MIMAKI PREVIEWS NEW 3D PRINTER Mimaki USA, Suwanee, Georgia, recently pre- viewed the company's new 3D UV-cure inkjet printer prototype— provisionally named the 3DUJ-P—that offers a patented full-color UV-cure method of additive printing that enables unprec- edented 3D modeling, yielding vibrant colors and high definition imaging. The 3DUJ-P can create products that are delicate, extremely precise and incredibly realistic and detailed. Unlike many other 3D printing systems, the Mimaki uses a water-soluble support material that does not require lye or other harsh chemicals, but is easily removed with water alone. Easy removal of the support material means that end users can create models and products with fine details and intricate designs without affecting the final design.

The purpose of this new laser-cutting system is to cut polyester fabrics and seal the edges at the same time. This addition further amplifies the versatility of Zünd's modular, wide-format cutting systems. Soft signage offers tremendous potential in the vast and diverse world of visual communication media. Polyester fabrics are beginning to conquer applications previously ruled by paper and PVC substrates. To facilitate cutting this material, Zünd has devel- oped the LM 100W laser module. It is designed to cut polyester textiles and simultaneously seal the edges. Frayed edges become a thing of the past. The LM 100W automates what has long been a separate, manual operation and thereby also eliminates the need for seaming. In addition, the LM 100W delivers impeccable cut quality and flawless repeatability. Because laser cutting is a touchfree process, no hold-down is required during processing.

WRAP INSTALLATION GLOVE ORAFOL Americas, Black Creek, Georgia, introduces WrapGlove, a new blue glove with a red wrist band exclusively made for ORAFOL and available from authorized ORAFOL distributors. Unlike other gloves, WrapGlove does not shed fibers and will not stick to graphic film adhesive due to its unique fabric weave. Now, with WrapGlove, there are no worries about contaminating the adhesive or transferring oils from your skin. The WrapGlove is easy to care for by washing in cold water and line drying.

The new METRO Digital sheet stocks (MIP295205HPS-2, MIP295205SPS-2, MIP295205MPS-2, MIP295205UPS-2) fea- ture the same attributes and characteristics HP Indigo customers appreciate from the product line's 12"x18" and 13"x19" construc- tions, including a general purpose permanent acrylic adhesive specially formulated to eliminate sheet-edge adhesive bleed and a cost-effective white Kraft layflat liner with outstanding internal strength, toughness, and tear-resistance for kiss-cutting.
