(54)Image recording device


(57) An image recording device is provided with a plurality of color ink heads (51) which each discharge photo curable color inks onto a recording medium, first irradiation units (61) which are disposed between the color ink heads which are adjacent and which irradiate light onto the color inks which are discharged from the color ink heads on the upstream side in the transport direction onto the recording medium, a second irradiation unit (62) which is disposed more to the downstream side in the transport direction than the plurality of color ink heads and which irradiates light which is stronger than the light which is irradiated by the first irradiation units onto the image which is formed using the color inks which are discharged by the plurality of color ink heads, and a transparent ink head (52) which is disposed more to the downstream side in the transport direction than the second irradiation unit (62) and which discharges transparent ink onto the image which is formed on the other surface of the recording medium which is transported in the transport direction while being supported by a support member, wherein an interval, where a furthermost downstream color ink head and the transparent ink head are lined up, is wider than an interval where the plurality of color ink heads are lined up.
