Mimaki launches new desktop 3D printer for production parts

The Mimaki 3DFF-222 printer can produce jigs, three-dimensional signage and many more applications

Mimaki Europe, a leading manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, today announces the launch of the new Mimaki 3DFF-222 3D printer, a product co-branded with Sindoh, a manufacturer of 3D printers and multi-function printers based in South Korea. The Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) solution has been developed as an in-house design and production tool, delivering ultra-reliable, almost silent manufacture of prototypes and end-use parts such as jigs and three-dimensional signage.

Commercially available from the end of April 2019, the 3DFF-222 system prints in PLA material. Using easy-to-load filament cartridges it prints parts up to 210mm x 200mm x 195mm (W x D x H), and offers remote monitoring of each print job through a Mimaki app. The new platform joins the 3DUJ-553 in Mimaki’s portfolio of 3D printers, to which Mimaki has applied the expertise from its long heritage in 2D printing. Consequently, both systems offer enduring reliability and have technical support and customer service in place across the globe.

“Flexibility and ease-of-use are key features of the new desktop 3D printer,” states Bert Benckhuysen, Senior Product Manager at Mimaki Europe. “It’s been developed so that you can have it sitting in your office without disruption. Running at 45dB the noise levels are almost the same as a museum, and the footprint is small enough that it fits onto a desk, running off design iterations as they are needed with maximum convenience. With the PLA material you can also produce hard, robust models that don’t warp easily, so production parts such as jigs and moulds can be produced rapidly, helping manufacturers reduce lead times... And because it’s a Mimaki machine, it’s also extremely reliable.”

Key features of the 3DFF-222 3D printer

PLA (Poly-Lactic Acid) filament – a hard, robust material that is a plant-derived eco-plastic made from corn and potato starch
Automatic Filament Supply – filament installation is simplified, comprising insertion of a reeled filament in the dedicated cartridge and setting it to the main unit, the filament is supplied to the nozzle automatically
Auto Filament Cutting – is also possible after the print job is completed
A flexible metal bed, with built-in thermostatic function, enables both stable formation and easy removal of the model once it is ready
Bed Leveling Assist – automatic measuring of horizontal error of the table and correction also supports stable formation
HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter – prevents the discharge of foul air
Motor drivers were designed specially to reduce noise levels during operation
A camera and LED light are provided for remote monitoring with a smartphone or tablet

“Following the launch of our flagship 3DUJ-553 3D printer, Mimaki continues to explore opportunities in 3D printing,” continues Benckhuysen, “Our new desktop 3D printer is designed to fit the needs of modern production environments and it is suitable for a broad range of uses. The introduction of this latest product demonstrates Mimaki’s commitment to driving innovation and providing our customers with profit-enhancing solutions.”
