[Main features]


1.Two models are available

2. Proven High resolution and quality print

The new “SWJ-320 S2/S4” can be operated in a variety of print modes, ranging from draft mode (360x600dpi) to high-quality mode (1080x1200dpi).
Both models are capable of printing for outdoor and indoor signage. Especially, the maximum print speed of “SWJ-320 S4” is up to 84.6m2/h in draft mode; it contributes productivity of large sized printing. Furthermore, variable-size ink dots printing (7 pl minimum dot size) ensures beautiful print results without a grainy appearance. The “SWJ-320 S2/S4” meets the increasing client demands for higher print quality.

3. Ease of maintenance

Mimaki products have been reputed for the ease of maintenance. This is the one reason that many clients select our products. The new “SWJ-320 S2/S4” has proven nozzle maintenance functions including pressure purging*1, automatic suction*2 and automatic wiping*3. In addition, the nozzle recovery function temporarily recovers printing without long pause, even if nozzles are clogged.
*1. For the purpose of maintaining the good condition of the printhead, a pressure is applied to ink and the ink is jetted from the printhead.
*2. When the printhead is on a cap, ink that remains on the head nozzle surface is suctioned.
*3. Nozzle surface is automatically wiped.

4. Reliable solvent ink “CS100” with affordable price

CS100 ink, available in 2-liter bottles, is not only more affordable than conventional ink cartridges, but the ink has exceptional stability and low propensity to clog nozzles. The CS100 inks also bring the same high Mimaki standards for color accuracy, image durability and weatherability found in conventional Mimaki solvent inks.

The “SWJ-320 S2/S4” is equipped with three heaters and drying fan, which accelerates the drying time of printed media. Additionally, fluorescent lights are assembled above the printing area to make it easy for operators to check printed media under the controlled lighting conditions.
