Mimaki, a pioneer in manufacturing of wide format inkjet printers and cutting plotters, has announced that it has updated its Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B direct-to-textile printers, to load both textile pigment and sublimation dye inks. The hybrid ink system for the Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B direct-to-textile printers will be commercially available from the summer of 2017.

This will enable use of a single printer to print directly on a wide range of textiles without the need to change ink systems. The latest technology is seen as a breakthrough that will improve productivity and increase flexibility for these Mimaki textile printers.

“Recently, in the textile and apparel markets, quick deliveries and short, customised production are becoming increasingly important. This new system is specifically designed to address this need for cost-effective short run printing of textiles for products or samples,” said Ronald van den Broek, General Manager Sales of Mimaki Europe, adding, “It means that producers can switch fabric types quickly and easily, selecting the appropriate ink system for each fabric. And these inks do not require usage of water or steaming in the post-treatment process, making them environmentally sustainable as well.”

The company states that it understands the need for an affordable printer with a compact footprint for these users, and it moved swiftly to address this need with a very unique approach. As digital textile printing continues to gain traction, placing these printers in design and educational environments will help educate more people about the possibilities presented by on-demand printing of textiles and spur further demand for digitally printed textiles.
