Visitors to Printwear & Promotion LIVE! were among the first in the UK to see live demonstrations of the new Maikuro direct to garment printer from Aeoon earlier this week.
Aeoon has developed an entry-level digital textile printing machine that is small in size, but also very efficient. It is supplemented with Ricoh print heads, making it the ideal solution for any growing business.
The Maikuro features a recirculating ink system, which makes it extremely environmentally efficient because there is no compressed air needed in the machine. Additionally, the customer benefits from less purge losses. The ink is constantly in motion, which prevents pigments from setting.
Users are able to achieve approximately 65 A4 prints on dark garments per hour.
The Maikuro was being demonstrated live on the Fruit of the Loom and Russell stand. Visitors were able to choose from six different prints and watch their design printed in front of them.
