Mimaki Europe showcased its two best-selling printers at this year’s Innovate Textile & Apparel Virtual Trade Show, held from October 15-30. The company showcased dye-sublimation printer TS55-1800 and the new hybrid printer TX300P-1800 MkII. Both printers offer cost-effective innovative textile technology. Visitors were also able to benefit from special promotions; including a special deal for the TS300P-1800 and a chance to win the Mimaki TS30-1300 entry-level sublimation printer.
Mimaki’s TS55-1800 offers industrial scale production and incorporates Mimaki’s core technologies; such as NCU (Nozzle Check System) and NRS (Nozzle Recovery System), nozzle control and restoration systems; that ensure automatic detection and replacement of clogged nozzles without interrupting production. Additionally, MAPS (Mimaki Advanced Pass system), a system created to prevent banding; uses a special algorithm at each print pass and calculates the most effective way to jet the ink droplets according to color, coverage and speed.
Available with the Mini Jumbo Roll option that can help save up to 25 per cent on paper costs and a 10L bulk ink system; the Mimaki TS55-1800 offers the lowest running cost in the market; and is the ideal production model for small- to medium-sized companies.
The Tx300P-1800 MkII features printing on both textile and paper with one machine. The new model provides unrivalled flexibility and opens new doors for print service providers. This hybrid textile printer switches swiftly between direct-to-textile and transfer printing via an interchangeable platen.
The printer allows users to select from three different ink combinations to load onto the machine; textile pigment/direct sublimation, textile pigment/sublimation transfer, or direct sublimation/sublimation transfer. This enables the production of an array of applications from fashion textiles to interior fabrics and wallpaper.
Both affordable and versatile, the Mimaki Tx300P-1800 MkII appeals to smaller print service providers and large volume production houses alike; delivering faster turnarounds and more cost-effective short-runs and textile sampling.
