High speed meets high production for direct-to-textile printing

With a class-leading 150m2/h print speed, the Mimaki TX500-1800DS prints directly to digitally prepared polyester fabrics, for long production runs. Perfectly suited to high quality textile point-of-sale, light boxes, banners, flags, mesh and all types of soft signage, the TX500-1800DS removes the need for transfer paper where the application permits.

This machine is equipped with the Mimaki Degassing Module (MDM-20) which eliminates gasses and bubbles inside the ink, enabling the printer to use bottled inks. The TX500-1800DS uses the new Mimaki fast drying Sb300 sublimation ink which offers a more affordable alternative to conventional ink and offers both brilliant colour reproduction and excellent resistance to fading. Mimaki’s unique drying mechanism allows for printed ink to be speedily dried and fixed on media with more flexible and convenient operation, by heating during and after printing. Additionally, the Mist Absorbing Filter removes ink mist during printing, reducing downtime caused by ink mist and enhancing print stability.

The Tx500-1800DS has a maximum print width of 1850mm and The Auto Media Feeder (AMF) provides stable media feeding and take-up. Roll media of up to 60kg and 300mm in diameter can be handled without the need for frequent changing, enabling continuous printing and improved productivity on large orders.
