Mimaki has announced its new direct-to-textile and dye sublimation inkjet printer, TX400-1800B.

The TX400-1800B features a newly developed Adhesive Belt Carrier System which Mimaki says will stabilise flexible materials that tend to stretch and contract during printing.

tx400-1800bMajor points of the new machine include:
1. Adhesive Belt Carrier System
 The Adhesive Belt Carrier System locks the fabric in the belt thus enabling conveying without applying tension. This way even media that stretch or contract can be printed. In addition, this belt carrier system is equipped with belt encoder that ensures evenly feeding of the fabric, without the issue of unevenly printed areas.
2. UISS for long unattended print runs
 Tx400-1800B automatically switches ink supply from an empty cartridge to a full one of the same colour thanks to Mimaki’s UISS (Uninterrupted Ink Supply System) thus enabling long unattended print runs-even overnight.
3. Profitable printing with cost-saving inks
 Significant cost-savings can be achieved by adopting Mimaki’s 2-liter bulk ink containers that come at a very competitive price and enable highly profitable digital textile prints.
4. Further Benefits
 · 2.5 times faster print speeds:
Tx400-1800B enables print speeds of 25 sqm/h (600 x 600 dpi / 8 colour mode).
A newly designed powerful heater system allows for fast drying at high speeds.
· Ink drop volume adjustment:
According to the substrate and design used the ink drop volume can be adjusted in order to achieve excellent vivid and detailed images.
· Web tension control:
Automatic tension over the whole width of the print on light as well as heavy substrates is ensured through to the take-up device.
· 3 different kinds of ink:
Reactive dye ink, acid dye ink and dye sublimation ink can be accommodated thus enlarging application possibilities.
