Mimaki, a global manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutting machines for the sign/graphics, apparel, and industrial markets, has announced that its latest Tiger-1800B production-class textile printer has proven a hit among textile and apparel professionals during demonstrations at a series of industry tradeshows held in 2016 and 2017.

The Tiger-1800B is available in direct to textile (reactive ink) and sublimation (heat transfer) versions. With a maximum printing speed of 385 m2/h, the Tiger-1800B fits high-volume production environments that have traditionally printed using analogue printing methods, bringing the benefits of digital printing to these higher volume applications and making it more efficient and cost-effective to produce short runs, customised fabrics and garments, and samples.

Ronald van den Broek, general manager sales at Mimaki Europe said, “With the Tiger-1800B, we have moved from entry-level and mid-range offerings to a true production model that will help speed the analogue-to-digital transformation the industry is currently undergoing. The digital transformation is largely being driven by brands and retailers looking to produce faster change collections more often, reduce stocks, and supply chain waste.”

Digital printing of textiles also addresses the massive amount of pollution attributed to the textile industry, one of the world’s biggest polluters.

“With production level products like the Mimaki Tiger-1800B, manufacturers of garments and home goods can take advantage of digital technology to reduce their environmental footprint, establishing a more sustainable operation while also providing brands and retailers with the benefits they are seeking,” Ronald added.

Van den Broek said, “There is huge opportunity within the analogue-to-digital transformation in textiles and apparel, for Mimaki, as well as our customers and the brands and retailers they support. We are proud to be a leader in this vibrant and important market segment, offering sustainable digital solutions like the Tiger-1800B that deliver the speed and quality the market is increasingly demanding. We believe this printer can really help producers earn their stripes in textile printing.” (GK)
