Mimaki says that the upgrades on both the Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B make the machines suitable as entry-level devices
The enhancement will mean that customers will be able to use a single printer to print directly onto a wider range of textiles, without needing to swap out ink systems.
The manufacturer already offers sublimation dye ink, dispersion dye ink, textile pigment ink, reactive dye ink and acid dye ink for textile print production, and companies can now use the two most popular ink types in one single printer.
Users of the Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B will be able to simultaneously load TP400 textile pigment ink for cotton and hemp materials, in addition to Sb420 sublimation dye ink for polyester material.
Mimaki added that as the printer and colour fixing equipment are all that is required, the Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B can now be regarded as entry-level printers that are suitable for use by designers, fabric workshops, and both educational and research institutions.
This is a very exciting development for our textile print customers”
Stephen Woodall, national sales manager, textile and apparel, at Hybrid Services, Mimaki’s exclusive distributor in the UK and Ireland, spoke very positively about the new developments, explaining that users of both printers will now be able to benefit from enhanced “flexibility and productivity” in the printing process.
“This is a very exciting development for our textile print customers,” Woodall says, adding: “Mimaki has listened carefully to feedback from this sector and understood the need for greater print production flexibility and productivity whilst still providing an affordable package coupled with a compact footprint.
“We are finding that these printers are increasingly in demand from professional design and educational environments, which in turn is likely to create even more momentum and interest in on-demand digital printing of textiles.”
