Mimaki, a global industry leader and manufacturer of wideformat inkjet printers, cutting plotters, 3D modelling machines and RIP software headquartered in Japan, has announced that the company is set to participate in FESPA 2018. In textile segment visitors to the Mimaki stand will be able to watch both sublimation transfer and direct-to-textile printing in person, as well as get inspired by an extensive collection of textile samples. One of the highlights would be the Tiger-1800B, Mimaki’s robust textile printer for industrial level high volume production.
Specifically engineered for the production of soft furnishing fabrics and fashion and apparel, the Tiger-1800B delivers high print speeds of up to 385m2/h, strong build quality, and stunning print output. Another highlight would be Mimaki’s presence at FESPA’s new Print Make Wear feature, at which a complete workflow of digital textile production will be showcased. Mimaki will demonstrate the printing process with the Tx300P-1800. Using its unique dual ink capability, this direct-to-textile printer can load both textile pigment and sublimation dye inks at the same time, enabling the machine to print on a wide range of fabrics without the need to change out ink systems. Mimaki’s well-received first foray into 3D market, the 3DUJ-553, can be seen in action at FESPA. Dubbed as the world’s first 3D printer capable of producing more than 10 mn colours, the machine jets and instantly UV-cures successive fine layers of liquid photopolymer to create one or several models or parts.
