Mimaki to add light black ink to spot colour range
Jan '16
Mimaki will add light black ink to its range of spot colours beginning February 2016 and is offered by its SB410 genuine sublimation ink products.

According to a Mimaki press release, Fluor 5Light black joins the recently announced new neon yellow and pink fluorescent inks, which are ideal for low-volume high-quality use in fashion and sports and swimwear.

“This addition will expand apparel production possibilities for users and will increase the versatility of the TS300P-1800, a dedicated dye sublimation inkjet printer for apparel and textile applications,” it said.

“The TS300P-1800 will demonstrate some of the innovative and creative capabilities the inks enable at FESPA Digital 2016 in Amsterdam, in Hall 1 on Stand E15,” the digital textile printer manufacturer added.

“These new inks, developed by Mimaki's reliable technologies, add value to finished products,” Mike Horsten, general manager marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe said.

“The light black ink prevents colour shifting on monochromic gradations and photograph prints and enhances the beauty and delicacy of images,” he too added.

“Together with the bright neon colours of the fluorescent pink and yellow inks, it gives users the opportunity to create unique design products,” Horsten informed.

Mimaki will show at FESPA Digital 2016, how light black ink, which is compatible with the TS300P-1800 version 1.70 or higher and available in two litre ink packs, enhances the beauty of print results.

It will demonstrate how it creates smooth gradations and ensures the easy reproduction of delicate tones in monochromatic photographs.

“The light black ink also reduces the granular appearance and tone jumps that are indicative of monochrome and greyscale prints,” the company explained.

Horsten further added that the combined expanding ink collection addresses increasing demand for sublimation inkjet print systems in apparel production lines.

“In particular eye-catching neon colours and delicate colour printing are increasingly requested in the sports and fashion apparel market,” he observed. (AR)
