Mimaki USA, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, has designed a new direct-to-textile printer, TX300P-1800B, which has an advanced belt transport system to ensure stable feeding of stretchy and thin fabrics. The printer with many features of high-end direct-print models is suitable for users making samples or short-run pieces.

The 74-inch wide TX300P-1800B direct-to-fabric textile printer has been designed specifically for direct-to-textile applications. It includes new print heads with a high gap setting that maintain accurate ink droplet placement and enable printing on thick or thin textiles, dimensionally unstable fabrics, woven patterns or raised fibre surfaces. Mimaki original inks are specifically designed for exceptional colour reproduction onto natural or synthetic fibres for producing fashion textiles, performance sportswear, interior décor, flags, banners, and more.

The model uses an advanced textile feeding and conveyance mechanism – including rear tension bars as well as a sticky belt that ensures stable and high quality textile printing and transportation. Delivering the highest quality direct-to-fabric printing, the TX300P-1800B printer uses an embedded belt washing mechanism and belt feed compensation to clean the belt and stabilise the image quality.

Mimaki original textile inks are optimised for TX300P-1800B printer. These purpose-developed Mimaki textile products provide an industry leading solution delivering consistency and reliability essential for the production of the highest quality direct-to-fabric products.

Sb420, direct-to-fabric dye sublimation, Ac400, acid dye, Rc400, reactive dye, Tp400, textile pigment, Dd400, disperse dye, are all Mimaki original textile inks designed to suit specific fabric characteristics ensuring exceptional colour reproduction on either natural or synthetic fibres for producing fashion textiles, performance sportswear, interior décor, flags, banners, and more.

Dye sublimation, textile pigment, reactive dye, and acid dye inks are available at the time of the machine release while disperse dye inks are planned for future release.

The TX300P-1800B printer, along with its sister product the TX300P-1800 (without belt) printer will be able to accommodate two different inks in one printer. This dual ink capability gives users the ability to print onto natural materials with textile pigment inks (Tp400) or on polyester materials with sublimation dye inks (Sb420) using only one printer. Since neither Tp400 nor Sb420 inks require a steaming and washing process – resulting in an environmentally friendly production (less water usage) – this configuration simplifies the textile production and is ideal for designers, fabric workshops, education and research institutions, and entrepreneurs. Dual ink capability is expected to be available in later part of 2017, for both models. (SV)
