Mimaki’s newly introduced hybrid digital textile printer, the Tx300P-1800 MkII, recently headlined the company’s highly successful online Virtual Print Festival – created in the wake of the postponed FESPA exhibition where it was due to be unveiled.
Uniquely designed with versatility at its core, the new printer is designed to deliver both direct to textile and transfer printing, with interchangeable platens and three different ink combinations – providing exceptional flexibility within a single system and offering new opportunities for printers seeking to both diversify and expand.
Following in the footsteps of Mimaki’s popular Tx300P-1800 digital textile printer, the evolutionary MkII now adds sublimation transfer printing to its capabilities, opening up an array of potential new materials and applications. The ability to fulfil multiple needs from fashion textiles to display fabrics and sportswear within one system makes the printer an ideal entry to mid-level solution. With its launch, Mimaki is enabling both smaller print service providers and large volume production houses to enjoy the many benefits of digital print technology including more cost-effective short runs and faster turnarounds.
In the current climate, the need for garment decorators to respond rapidly to changing customer requirements comes into ever sharper focus and the ability to switch production from one fabric to another, output any run length and select from a range of inks, empowers businesses to deliver the goods when they’re needed the most.
The Tx300P-1800 MkII is available in the UK through Hybrid Services.
