Focus on Transfer Printing & Heat Presses

Hybrid Services Continuing to innovate

Mimaki has long been synonymous with digital textile printing with the company’s first digital textile printer – the Mimaki TX-1600S – launched in 1998. Since then Mimaki has continued to innovate, enhancing its portfolio and capabilities even further in the digital textile printing industry. The latest addition to Mimaki’s textile line-up is a hybrid digital textile printer designed with versatility at its core; the Mimaki TX300P-1800 MkII enables both direct to textile and transfer printing, with interchangeable platens and three different ink combinations – providing unrivalled flexibility within a single system and opening new doors for print service providers. The game-changing Mimaki TX300P-1800 MkII delivers to businesses an affordable streamlined single-system solution for printing on both paper and textile, but also provides print service providers with the versatility to continue exploring different substrates and applications as they grow their businesses into the future. The ability of the Mimaki Tx300P-1800 MkII to switch between direct to textile and transfer printing is enabled by its interchangeable platens. When printing direct to textile, excess ink penetrated through the fabric is drained by a platen with an ink-receiving channel. When printing on heat transfer paper however, this platen can be quickly and easily exchanged for a vacuum platen needed for paper printing – without the need for service engineers. The hybrid printer is also able to facilitate either a traditional one-way ink set, configured with any one of five ink types, as well as various combinations of inks, providing unparalleled flexibility. Users can select from three different ink combinations: textile pigment/ direct sublimation, textile pigment/ sublimation transfer, or direct sublimation/ sublimation transfer – to provide the best results across various applications.
