MAPS | Mimaki Advanced Pass System

MAPS is Mimaki’s technology to reduce banding at the pass boundaries, by jetting ink drops according to a unique algorithm based on speed, ink colour and density, assuring the highest image quality at every print speed. Without correction, inkjet printers tend to create significant ink concentration differences at pass boundaries, visible as horizontal lines on the print (= banding).

The advantage of MAPS explained

MAPS applied

With every pass, Maps is using an unique algorithm calculating the With every pass, MAPS is using a unique algorithm calculating the most effective way of jetting the ink drops to avoid visible banding. This is constantly changing depending on ink colour, density and printing speed.

MAPS not applied

Without correction, every inkjet printer tends to create significant ink concentration differences at pass boundaries, visible as horizontal lines in the printed application.
