Mimaki has announced that it will be exhibiting at Heimtextil 2018, running from 9th to 12th January in Frankfurt, Germany

Running from the 9th to the 12th of January in Frankfurt, the exhibition will see Mimaki showcase both direct-to-textile and sublimation transfer printers, as well as displaying a wide range of printed textiles. 

Ronald van den Broek, general manager sales at Mimaki Europe, comments: “Heimtextil is an important show for Mimaki. We are especially excited this year to be speaking with attendees about not only entry-level and mid-market textile printers, but also our Mimaki Textile Pro Series for higher volume applications. 

“Fashion designers and other show attendees are sure to find inspiration when they visit our stand and see what is possible with modern digital textile printing.”

On display on the Mimaki stand will be a selection of printers, including the Tx300P Series. The firm claims these are highly flexible and easy-to-use digital textile printers that use two different types of textile inks at the same time. This dual ink capacity allows printing on cotton with textile pigment inks and printing on polyester with sublimation ink in one printer, without changing ink types.

Mimaki will also show a variety of sublimation printers, ranging from entry-level machines to grand-format devices for higher-volume environments. 

Van den Broek continues: “A highlight of Mimaki’s textile show exhibit is always the application showcase and Heimtextil will be no exception. This year, Mimaki invites all designers and manufacturers of homeware to walk into their large, roomy application area on the stand to experience the beauty of digitally printed textiles and decorations.

“Visitors will be able to see up close, touch and feel a wide array of applications, such as bedding, cushions, shower curtains, wallpaper, carpets and more. Not only will these reflect the versatility of Mimaki printing solutions, but they will also serve as a mood board of new emerging market trends.”

Exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland by Hybrid Services, the company’s textile product manager, Brett Platt anticipates welcoming significant numbers of visitors. “Heimtex is always very well attended by UK and Irish textile companies and I’m sure this year will be no exception,” he states. 

“Mimaki’s presentation of state-of-the-art printers and inspiring applications will be a valuable opportunity for visitors looking to either introduce or grow in-house textile printing productivity for their company.”

“We aim to inspire visitors to our stand,” van den Broek concludes, adding: “But in all honesty, we are more inspired by the visitors than they are by us! This is a very creative group, and we are looking forward to sharing ideas with them that will inspire both of us as we move into the future of digital textile printing.”
